GDPR Lyra Network

Background & Scope

Regulation 206/679, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), applies to any organization, regardless of whether it is based in or outside the European Union (EU), that processes personal data of individuals residing in the EU.

With this document, Lyra undertakes to inform its customers of their new obligations in the framework of the implementation of the GDPR and to show how Lyra as a service provider meets its obligations while complying with the regulations specific to its role of a payment service provider.

What are our responsibilities?

Lyra is responsible for the personal data it processes. The regulation requires proof of sound management and protection of data.

In this respect, Lyra has appointed a DPO in charge of data monitoring and management who is the single point of contact for his clients. The DPO has been declared to the CNIL (French National Commission on Informatics and Liberty, N° DPO-1797).

As a payment service provider, Lyra acts as a subcontractor, as defined in the GDPR. This subcontracting is carried out in the context of a contractual relationship with Lyra’s customers, who are in turn responsible for data processing within the meaning of the GDPR.

Henceforth, the Terms of Service between Lyra and its customers include specific clauses dedicated to the processing and protection of personal data.
