2. Security of data within your Virtual Machines
2.1. Unmanaged Virtual Machines
Skrey is an unmanaged service provider, as such we have no visibility or knowledge of customer data stored within Virtual Machines (VMs) on our platform. Each VMs’ disk is encrypted automatically and with the exception of the user not visible or accessible to anyone, Skrey staff included. The responsibility for the management and security of data held within the VMs on our platform is that of the user, whilst we can advise on best practices to ensure VMs remain uncompromised, we do not take responsibility for it.
With regards to GDPR, it being understood that Skrey has no active access to or knowledge of the data held on user services, Skrey cannot be deemed “controller” or “processor” on the user’s behalf to the full extent, however Skrey understands that on occasion it may be required of the user to provide Skrey staff with temporary access to their services in order to perform support-related tasks, if a Data Processing Addendum (DPA) is required to fulfil the user’s GDPR obligations, an agreement can be requested from this website customer area.
2.2 Managed Virtual Machines
On some Virtual Machines (VMs), depending on user subscription to a Managed Hosting Service provided by Skrey, the user is required to provide access to their services to Skrey staff in order to perform support-related tasks. If a Data Processing Addendum (DPA) is required to fullfil the user’s GDPR obligations, an agreement can be requested from this website customer area.
In any case, Skrey will be bound to GDPR obligations in its service to the user under the agreement previously mentioned.
