Data Processor vs Data Controller

Backblaze has two types of customer data:

Stored data: The data you store with Backblaze for the purpose of being able to recover (restore) some or all of the data at some later date/time.  For this type of data you are considered the Data Controller and Backblaze is the Data Processor performing functions based on your requests.

Account data: This is the data that we collect from you to operate and manage your Backblaze account via the services we provide.  A subset of your account data is Personal Data and includes data such as your email address, and optionally data such as your computer name, phone number, payment information, etc.  For Personal Data, Backblaze is considered the Data Controller in that we decide what data we need to collect and how to utilize it within our system.
