GDPR Statement

Last Updated: May 21, 2019

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union regulation which protects the rights of data subjects in the European Economic Area (EEA), with respect to the processing of their “personal data,” as such term is defined in the GDPR.

Privacy Monitor is a technology-powered privacy solution developed and powered by Osano, Inc., A Public Benefit Corporation (“Osano”). Any personal data collected as a result of using the Privacy Monitor software is being collected by Osano as the controller.

Compliance

The Privacy Monitor software is purpose-built not to collect personal data of individuals. Rather, we created it with the goal of helping you better understand who has access to your personal information and how they use it. Here are some of the actions we’ve taken to ensure our compliance with GDPR:

  • We limit the personal data we collect to IP address, period
  • We have established a legal basis for the processing of that data
  • We only retain personal data for a period of 30 days, after which, the data is deleted

What Personal Data is Collected, How is it Collected and Who is It Shared With

Please see the Privacy Policy for Osano’s Privacy Monitor privacy solution, which describes the categories of information we process, the purpose for which we process personal data and who it is shared with.

How Long is Personal Data Retained

The only personal data collected by the Privacy Monitor software is IP address. The IP address is stored in our log-files for a period of thirty (30) days. After 30 days, it is deleted from our system.

If you contact us directly using the contact information provided on the PrivacyMonitor.com website, we will retain your contact information as long as necessary in order to respond to your inquiry. We may retain copies of these communications for a period of up to twelve months. After that, the communications will be deleted from our system, unless we are required by law to retain it longer.

Children’s Privacy

The Privacy Monitor software was not developed or intended for individuals that are deemed to be children under applicable data protection or privacy laws, nor do we knowingly collect information from children. The personal data collected when using the Privacy Monitor software is limited solely to IP address.

If you are a user of the Privacy Monitor software located in the EEA, we rely on legitimate interest as the legal basis for processing the limited personal data (i.e., limited to IP address) we collect via the software.

Profiling & Direct Marketing

We do not use any personal data for any (i) automated processing, including profiling, or (ii) direct marketing.

International Data Transfers

If you download and use the Privacy Monitor software on a device and are located within the EEA when you use it, we may transfer personal data (i.e., limited to IP address) about you outside of the EEA. When we do, we will ensure that an adequate level of protection is provided for the information by using industry standard encryption at rest and in transit. Visit our Security Statement to learn more about the technical and operational measures we implement.

Subprocessors

In connection with the provision of the Privacy Monitor solution, Osano may engage third parties (each a “Subprocessor”) to process your personal data. As a condition of permitting a Subprocessor to process your personal data, Osano will enter into a written agreement with each Subprocessor containing data protection obligations at least as protective as the technical and organizational measures Osano has put into place to protect your personal data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, or unauthorized disclosure or access.
