We are an application services provider, and host a software application that our customers access online. Our application does not process personal data except that of the users of the application, which we process as a data controller.
14. RELATIONSHIP TO COMCAST
None of the principles in this Policy were affect by FreeWheel’s acquisition by Comcast Cable Communications, LLC (“Comcast”). All of FreeWheel’s contractual obligations with respect to each customer’s information have remained intact. Also, post-acquisition, FreeWheel has continued to operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Comcast, meaning the two companies are separate legal entities. As such, FreeWheel cannot per the terms of its agreement with each customer allow Comcast (or any of Comcast’s other affiliates) to access FreeWheel customer data for any purpose. Maintaining FreeWheel’s status as a trusted partner is critical to the continued success of our business. Comcast and FreeWheel have been careful to organise the corporate structure so as not to disrupt that trust.
