In respect of personal data processed in the course of providing the Services, iEdge shall adhere to the following requirements:

Such instructions may be specific or of a general nature as set out in this DPA, the Services Agreement, or as otherwise notified by Customer to iEdge in writing from time to time. The nature and purposes of the processing shall be limited to that necessary to carry out such instructions, and not for iEdge's own purposes, or for any other purposes except as required by law. If IEdge is required by law to process the personal data for any other purpose, iEdge will inform Customer of such requirement prior to the processing unless prohibited by law from doing so.

These measures shall take into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation, and the nature, scope, context, and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons. The measures shall be appropriate to the harm which might result from any unauthorized or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction, damage or theft of the personal data and having regard to the nature of the personal data which is to be protected and as a minimum shall be in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation and Good Industry Practice.

IEdge will promptly inform Customer in writing if it receives: (i) a request from a data subject concerning any personal data; or (ii) a complaint, communication, or request relating to Customer’s obligations under Data Protection Legislation.
  7. iEdge will not retain any of the personal data for longer than is necessary to provide the Services. At the end of the Services, or upon Customer's request, IEdge will securely destroy or return (at Customer’s election) the personal data to Customer.

  9. Security Measures

    Access control

    iEdge has established a robust access control system to ensure that only authorized personnel have access to Personal Data. Access to Personal Data is restricted to authorized individuals who require it solely for support purposes. This access is governed by a role-based access control system, which grants access only to the data necessary for the specific support task.

    All iEdge personnel authorized to access Personal Data undergo training to ensure compliance with relevant Data Protection Laws. Furthermore, they are bound by perpetual confidentiality obligations, applicable to their support duties.

    Audit logging

    We maintain relevant audit logs, documenting access to sensitive information, including personal data. These logs are exclusively accessed by the Security team.

    Data encryption and pseudonymization

    We employ encryption and pseudonymization techniques to safeguard Personal Data from unauthorized access, disclosure, or destruction. iEdge utilizes cutting-edge encryption technologies to ensure the security of data during transmission and storage.

    Data storage and retention

    We take necessary measures to securely store and retain Customers' data. This includes logically separating Customers' data from system and application data, as well as implementing access controls and monitoring mechanisms. Additionally, we regularly assess and test the effectiveness of our technical and organizational measures to ensure data security.

    iEdge has also implemented measures to ensure the availability and accessibility of Personal Data in case of physical or technical incidents.

    Data Breaches

    We have established processes to address data breaches, which involve notifying relevant stakeholders in accordance with the type of incident and applicable legislation.

    Software Development

    Our development process adheres to a secure methodology, incorporating peer review, secure coding, and thorough testing.

    System configuration

    iEdge implements measures to safeguard the security and integrity of our systems and processes, including our system configuration and default settings. We adhere to industry best practices and standards to ensure secure system configurations and prevent vulnerabilities from default settings.

    We conduct regular reviews and updates of our system configuration settings to align with our security policies. Additionally, we enforce stringent controls over changes to system configurations, requiring documentation, approval, and testing before implementation.

    Moreover, our software development processes incorporate secure coding practices, and we consistently assess and update default configurations to maintain security and mitigate potential vulnerabilities.

    Assistance to Customer as a Data Controller

    iEdge recognizes its role as a Data Processor and acknowledges the responsibility to support the Customer in safeguarding the security and integrity of Personal Data. Accordingly, we have enacted targeted technical and organizational measures to facilitate effective assistance to the Customer in their capacity as a Data Controller.

    A pivotal measure we've implemented involves the formation of a specialized customer support team comprising personnel trained in compliance with relevant Data Protection Laws and regulations. This team is tasked with assisting the Customer in managing and processing Personal Data, including addressing requests for data access, rectification, and deletion.


    The iEdge platform is developed by the parent company FutureSoft India Pvt Ltd, which is an ISO 27001 certified company. iEdge has also obtained VAPT certification. We undergo regular audits and assessments to uphold this certification, ensuring our adherence to relevant data protection laws.
