For residents of the EEA or UK, KWAP, PEUK, KWAP’s respective wholly owned subsidiaries and/or KWAP’s special purpose entities will be a data controller, depending on the relevant processing, and two or more of them may be joint data controllers, when relevant.

If information is collected directly by PEUK (or KWAP’s wholly-owned subsidiary or special purpose entity), they may be acting as a processor of KWAP. However, in some circumstances, for example where PEUK (or KWAP’s wholly-owned subsidiary or special purpose entity) has a direct relationship with vendors, they may act as a data controller.
