Third-Party Services

Version 1.1, last updated: December 6, 2023

JetBrains Expo B.V. (“JetBrains”) is a products and services provider based in the Netherlands (EU), so its activities are directly regulated by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). JetBrains relies on certain third parties and affiliates, which may facilitate communication between JetBrains and customers, or otherwise help JetBrains with certain processes. Due to the nature of their engagement, these entities may have access to certain data shared by customers (including but not limited to some personal data) in relation to the KotlinConf Website or, in a broader sense, KotlinConf. Here is a more detailed overview of the third parties and JetBrains affiliates to which customer data can be made available. “Affiliates” are companies controlling, controlled by, or under common control with JetBrains Expo B.V. as listed here.

A. Third Parties and JetBrains Affiliates Engaged in the Provision of Products and Services (Sub-Processors)

If you use a service hosted by JetBrains or its Affiliates which relates to KotlinConf, or share certain personal data through a support request, JetBrains may process the data with the help of the following third-party providers and Affiliates. JetBrains considers these entities to be possible sub-processors of customers’ personal data in terms of the GDPR, and JetBrains maintains data processing agreements with them. This ensures adequate levels of data protection consistent with JetBrains’ obligations to its customers. JetBrains will inform customers about the changes of these sub-processors in accordance with the applicable data processing agreement.

B. Third Parties Supporting JetBrains Internal Processes (Other Recipients)

When JetBrains processes data for internal purposes as a data controller, other Affiliates may have access to the data as needed. Additionally, JetBrains uses additional providers that do not have access to customer content processed as part of JetBrains’ services, but that can receive certain personal data relating to, for example, individual customers, contact details of corporate customers’ employees or other representatives, users of products or services, visitors to KotlinConf Website or premises, or other individuals.
