Privacy Policy

Effective date: May 16, 2019

Who we are

Our website address is: https://myprivacypage.com. We help citizens exercise their Rights to Privacy.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

We are committed to protecting your Privacy, and it starts with us being transparent. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with GDPR and other applicable regulations).

We may collect information about you on contact forms for the following reasons:

  • to deliver a service related to Data Privacy to You (such as ForgetMe!)
  • to respond to any queries which you may have, including but not limited to customer service requests, partnership offerings, data subject requests, job offers and more.

We will never collect information about you without your explicit consent. We will not e-mail you in the future unless you have given us your consent and will give you the chance to unsubscribe at any time.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

You can request that your cookies be deleted by reaching out to our DPO office mpp-dpo@myprivacypage.com.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We implemented Google Analytics in order to helps us improve our user experience. The data collected is not directly linked to an individual and is being used for statistics about webpage optimization.

Who we share your data with

The commitment of MyPrivacyPage is that your data will never be sold. It will not be shared without your consent either.

For the purpose of some of our services (eg, “ForgetMe!”), we need to use basic information about you such as your first name and email address in order to deliver the service. These are details we need to communicate to the services you would like to delete your information from (Data Controllers). These Data Controllers will use it to identify you and process the deletion of your records. Our Service does not grant them the permission to keep your email address and first name after the deletion of all of your records has been done.

In order to process the request and ensure the follow up with Data Controllers, we will keep your first name, email and the Data Controller name during the process of having your data removed. Once we receive confirmation that your personal data has been forgotten (deleted or anonymized) by the Data Controller, we will delete your email, only keeping your first name and the Data Controller name, thus making the record not personally identifiable. If you have registered to email lists on MyPrivacyPage such as our newsletters or data breach alerts, these lists are maintained separately and can not be linked to the requests that have been submitted to Data Controllers.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

For the use of some of our service like ForgetMe!, your personal data will be kept during the time required to process your claim and ensure the follow up with Data Controllers, and then all personally identifiable fields such as email addresses will be deleted from this service’s database as explained in previous section.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

Please send any questions, data subject requests such as information or deletion of your data to mpp-dpo@myprivacypage.com.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We implemented industry standard website and database protection tools to help protect your data. We keep the scope of identifiable data about you to a minimum over time.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In accordance with data privacy regulations such as GDPR, we are ready to report any potential breaches within the shortest amount of time possible and in every event, during the delay permitted by law.

What third parties we receive data from

When using some of our services such as DeleteMe!, you accept that Data Controllers send us updates about your data deletion requests. Usually, these updates should not contain any personal information but only status updates about your case. In the event a third party sends us personal information about you by mistake, every copy received by us will be immediately deleted including database records or emails.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

For some of our services and in order to help you exercise your Data Privacy Rights, we might ask you to tell us your country of residency. If this happens, we will use this data to understand which regulation applies to you and how to best help you.
