At Banalize, we place paramount importance on safeguarding your personal privacy. We are fully committed to upholding robust data protection standards. In this policy, we provide clarity on how we collect and utilize personal data, elucidate your rights, and outline the procedures for asserting them. We extend a warm welcome to you to get in touch if you have any queries regarding the management of your personal data.
Definition of Personal Data and Personal Data Processing
Personal data encompasses all information related to a living natural person, whether it is directly or indirectly linked to that individual. It goes beyond mere identifiers like names and social security numbers, encompassing elements such as images and email addresses. The processing of personal data encompasses all activities related to personal data within our IT systems, be it on mobile devices or computers. This includes functions like data collection, registration, structuring, storage, processing, and transmission. In some cases, manual records may also fall under this category. For the processing activities conducted within Banalize’s operations, we act as the data controller.
Nature of Processed Personal Data
Primarily, we process your username, email, personal details, email, and cookie updates, as well as publicly available locations and keywords. This processing is essential to fulfill our obligations as stipulated in our contractual agreement with you and to adhere to legal requirements and collective agreements.
Personal Data Assistants
In specific scenarios, it may be necessary for us to engage third parties, such as various IT providers for HR systems or electronic records. In such instances, they operate as personal data assistants on our behalf. We conduct thorough assessments of these personal data processors to ensure they maintain the security and confidentiality of personal data. When we enlist personal data assistants, it is solely for purposes aligned with those for which we process data.
Entities Independently Responsible for Personal Data
We may also share your personal data with specific entities that independently serve as data controllers, such as government authorities like the Swedish Tax Agency when legally mandated or as per regulatory decisions. In cases where your personal data is shared with an entity acting as an independent data controller, their privacy policies and data handling practices govern the utilization of your data.
Data Retention Period
We retain your personal data only for the duration necessary for the respective purpose. Some data, such as financial records, must be retained for a minimum of seven years in compliance with legislation.
Your Rights as Data Subject
As a registered user, you possess several rights in accordance with applicable legislation. These rights encompass the ability to request an overview of the personal data we have on record about you, request corrections to inaccuracies, and, under specific circumstances, request deletion. If you have inquiries about our personal data processing practices, please do not hesitate to contact us.
