Introducing Data Processing Agreements on LegalOn

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Data Processing Agreements (DPA) on our contract review platform. As data privacy and compliance continue to be top priorities for businesses, our DPA is designed to help legal teams control legal risks around how personal data is handled and in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

Data Processing Agreements, or sometimes called data processing addendums, are the 7th agreement type that we have launched on the platform this year. We've recently announced our review capabilities for Consulting Services Agreements and SaaS Terms of Service Agreements. The contracts we support include the following:

  1. Non-Disclosure Agreements
  2. Master Services Agreements
  3. SaaS Terms of Service Agreements
  4. Master Purchase Agreements
  5. General Provisions
  6. Consulting Services Agreements
  7. Data Processing Agreements

We expect to continue accelerating the pace of our contract launches through the remainder of 2023. Stay tuned!

Reviewing Data Processing Agreements with LegalOn

LegalOn is usable on Day 1 for customers, with no setup or AI training required. Our AI is now pre-trained to review DPAs out of the box. Issues and laws around data protection are rapidly evolving, and our software provides up-to-date guidance content written by experienced attorneys for every issue our AI spots. You can easily customize review settings and add your organization’s playbook positions as appropriate.

DPAs have become standard in most industries, especially those that handle significant amounts of personal data, including technology, e-commerce, healthcare, and finance. This agreement establishes a clear relationship between the Controller and Processor, specifying the types of data to be processed and the purpose for processing. With LegalOn's AI capabilities, our software will alert you to contract risks related to these provisions and provide sample language and guidance to help legal teams address those risks.

Terms around Processing of Personal Data outline the obligations and responsibilities of the Processor in handling personal data. It guarantees to the Controller that the data will be processed lawfully, securely, and only for specified purposes. This provision helps prevent misunderstandings or non-compliance, fostering a trustworthy data processing environment.

Additionally, the Sub-Processing provision addresses the delegation of data processing activities to a Sub-Processor. It ensures that any Sub-Processors adhere to the same standards and obligations as the primary Processor, thereby maintaining the integrity and security of the data. This provision provides flexibility for outsourcing tasks while ensuring compliance and data protection.

LegalOn’s AI will alert legal teams to risks related to these provisions and provide sample language and guidance to address those risks. Our software also helps legal teams review for clauses that reinforce Data Subject Rights, establish protocols for Data Breach Notifications, and enable Data Portability. We help legal teams ensure compliance, protect data privacy, and foster a responsible data processing environment.
