Data controllers are the organizations or persons who decide the purposes for which personal data is processed and the way in which this is carried out. The identity of a data controller depends on a particular business relationship involved. However, Globe who underwrite or administering an insurance contract or administering a claim under an insurance contract will normally act as the data controller so in this case, your data controller will normally be Globe Underwriting Limited.
