How to Alert Visitors When Your Subprocessors are Updated

As a SaaS company, you’re well aware that your subprocessors play a vital role in delivering top-notch services to your clientele. Whether your subprocessors provide analytical insights or they allow you to outsource a critical function of your product, your SaaS product likely adds a new subprocessor every few months.

With the frequent addition (or removal!) of subprocessors, transparency becomes crucial in maintaining the trust of your users. This is why you need to alert your clients of such changes in a swift and efficient manner. But how do you do this? In this guide, we will show you how to use Visualping’s button to create subprocessor update alerts.

Why Subprocessor Update Alerts Are Important

In simple terms, subprocessors are third parties that help data controllers, such as SaaS companies, process personal data entrusted to them by their customers. These third-party entities do not work in isolation; they collaborate with your company under contractual agreements.

Think of subprocessors as essential cogs in the vast machinery that is a cloud-enabled software application. Subprocessors handle a diverse range of tasks - from managing databases, handling customer relation channels, to providing infrastructure and more. Essentially, they are an extension of your business, working behind the scenes to ensure smooth delivery of your services.

It is imperative for SaaS organizations to keep their users abreast of any changes in their subprocessors list - their additions, removals, or any other update - as it signifies changes in how and where their personal data might be getting processed. This is where a tool like Visualping’s button comes into play. It acts as a bridge between your organization and your customers, helping you maintain transparency by notifying users of any changes in your subprocessors seamlessly.

Informing users about changes in your list of subprocessors is not just a good business practice; it’s can also help you and your customers comply with privacy laws like GDPR. Whenever there is a change in your subprocessors list, sending alert notifications can ensure you are allowing them to address any possible data protection concerns.
