Privacy policy

Delete Groups Privacy Policy

The EU adopted its new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in spring 2016. The GDPR became fully applicable on 25 May 2018. In Delete Group’s online services, GDPR-related considerations have been taken into account as part of good service provision and the development of the best maintenance practices.

At Delete Group, we want to protect the privacy of the users of our digital services. In addition, we want to offer users a safe and reliable user experience, determine and understand our users’ needs and provide content of interest to our users. This is why we collect data about our service users, including information on their use of our digital services. The use of applications is governed by the applicable legislation and Delete Group’s privacy policy as well as the terms and conditions of the service provider of the application used (such as Google, Cisio, Giosg, etc.). In addition to Delete Group’s privacy policy, we have drawn up a privacy statement for Delete Group services’ customer register. The privacy statement for the customer register is also available on this website.

  1. Rights of the data subject

Right of access and right to rectification

Individuals whose data has been registered (‘data subjects’) have the right to review any information pertaining to themselves saved in the register. Communications regarding the right of access should be made in writing, signed and sent to the address mentioned in section 1. If there are any errors in the registered information, the individual can send a request for rectification to the head of register named in section 2. Furthermore, registered individuals have the right to demand that their information be erased completely from the register. The controller is obligated to comply with this request, unless there are legal grounds to refuse it.

Right to object and restrict processing and right to be informed

Registered individuals also have the right to object to profiling and other processing of their data for particular personal reasons, when the legal basis for processing the data consists of the controller’s legitimate interest. Objection should be based on grounds relating to the particular situation of the individual, and these grounds should be cited in the request to exercise the right to object. The controller is only allowed to refuse this request, if there are legal grounds to do so.

In addition, registered individuals have the right to restrict the processing of their data and to lodge a complaint about the processing of their data with a supervisory authority. Furthermore, registered individuals have the right to receive their data from the controller’s system in a standardised format, as specified in the General Data Protection Regulation.

The data is compiled into databases protected by firewalls, passwords and other technological means. The databases and their backups are situated in locked facilities and only the appointed individuals can access the data. To comply with the accounting requirements, we retain the data in our customer register for a minimum of 10 years.
