For example, we may process personal data such as the business contact details of the person raising a customer support request (e.g., email address, telephone number). Our Master Terms & Conditions, which incorporate our Data Processing Agreement, include terms to cover this limited processing.
If the customer has subscribed for one of Commvault’s SaaS offerings where we also provide data storage (using AWS or Azure infrastructure), Commvault will be a data processor for the customer if the data that being stored includes personal data.
