3.1. This section details the processing of personal data related to communications to Recipients, carried out by WhatSender on behalf and following the instructions of the Users. In these cases, WhatSender acts as the data processor since the purposes and means for processing personal data are determined by the User, and WhatSender only accesses the data at the User's request and to provide the Service. WhatSender does not act as the data controller with respect to personal data related to communications to Recipients.

3.3. Consequently, WhatSender:

(i) will not process personal data related to communications to the Recipient for purposes other than providing the Service requested by the User and will not transfer such data, even for storage, to unauthorized third parties;

(ii) will process personal data related to communications to the Recipient following the User's instructions. When WhatSender becomes aware that the instructions given by the User violate data protection regulations, WhatSender will immediately inform the User;

(iii) will promptly notify the User if it becomes aware of any data security breach and will provide all relevant details;

(iv) will ensure that authorized persons within WhatSender who process personal data related to communications to the Recipient are committed to confidentiality or are subject to a legal obligation of confidentiality;

(v) taking into account the nature of the processing, will assist the User through appropriate technical and organizational measures, as far as possible, in complying with the Users' obligations to respond to data subject requests established in Chapter III of the GDPR. To this end, WhatSender will promptly notify the corresponding User, through the email provided as a contact in their account, of the requests it receives. In any case, it will be the User's responsibility to handle and respond to requests for the exercise of rights, although in fulfilling the above, WhatSender will follow the instructions provided by the User;

(vi) will take all necessary measures in accordance with Article 32 of the GDPR (security of processing);

(vii) will assist the User in fulfilling their obligations under Articles 32 to 36 of the GDPR, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to WhatSender, including, among other things:

- at the User's choice, WhatSender will delete or return to the User all personal data related to communications to the Recipient once the Service is completed, unless applicable regulations require data retention; and
- will make available to the User all necessary information to demonstrate compliance with the obligations set out in Article 28 of the GDPR and will allow and contribute to audits, including inspections, carried out by the User or by an auditor authorized by the User.

3.4. WhatSender will not subcontract third parties for processing operations that may involve access to personal data related to communications to the Recipient without the User's authorization.

In this regard, the following sub-processors of the data will be considered authorized by the User:

- Google Services: Google Apps
- Stripe

3.5. WhatSender will ensure the confidentiality of personal data related to communications to Recipients, even after the termination of the Service.

3.6. In cases where the User is in a country outside the EEA and, as a result of the service provided, international data transfers of personal data are carried out by WhatSender, and the adequacy of data protection levels in the country to which the data is transferred has not been confirmed by the European Commission, the so-called Standard Contractual Clauses contained in Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of June 4, 2021 ("SCC") between WhatSender and the User will apply, completed as follows:

(i) Only Module Four will be applied.

(vi) The information in Annex I will be deemed completed with the information contained in this Privacy Policy.
3.7. The User is the data controller for personal data of the Recipients or any other type in the context of communications sent through the Service, subject to the scope of the GDPR (taking into account that processing activities exclusively for domestic purposes are excluded from the GDPR), or any other applicable regulations. The User will be the sole party defining the purposes and means of processing such personal data, and it should be understood that WhatSender does not process personal data related to communications to Recipients for its own purposes but only uses them to provide the Service on behalf of the User. Consequently, the User must comply with the obligations applicable under data protection regulations, as appropriate in each case, including, where applicable, the obligations related to obtaining the consent of data subjects and informing them about the processing of their data as a result of using the Service. The User, not WhatSender, will be solely responsible for fulfilling these obligations.

4. Use of WhatsApp APIs

WhatSender's use of information received through the WhatsApp API implies the User's adherence to WhatsApp API User Data Policy.


5. Exclusion from WhatSender's Service by Recipients

If you are a Recipient of emails sent through WhatSender's Service and wish to exercise any rights under the GDPR, please be aware that you should contact the User of WhatSender who sent you the email. The User sending the email is the one who determines the recipient, content, and purpose of the communication, and therefore, according to the regulations, they are the ones responsible and obligated to comply with your rights. For the same reason, the User in question is the only one in a position to make decisions regarding the rights of Recipients whose data is being processed. WhatSender is merely the provider of the Service.

In any case, at WhatSender, we are committed to safeguarding and protecting privacy and provide you with the email https://what-sender.com/es to assist you in forwarding your requests to the corresponding User. Likewise, we will assist the User, in their capacity as the data controller, in fulfilling their obligations regarding the exercise of your rights. However, please note that the response and compliance will ultimately depend on the User.
