Guide to Data Protection Law 2017 for Data Controllers

What is a data controller?

Do you need a local representative?

If you are not established in the Islands but you nevertheless process personal data in the Cayman Islands (otherwise than for transit purposes – see the above section), you must nominate a local representative. You will need to state the local representative in your privacy notice.

Your local representative:

  • must be established in the Cayman Islands;
  • is, for all purposes within the Islands, the data controller; and,

bears all obligations of the data controller under the DPL.
