Information Collection and Use Practices
We collect personally identifiable information ("Personal Data") from you when you voluntarily choose to provide Personal Data. We use the Personal Data that we collect in order to provide and improve our services. Examples of Personal Data we collect include first name, last name, email address, and information about your organisation which you chose to provide us when signing up for a free online meeting.
Use of Personal Data
Aggregated Personal Data
In an ongoing effort to better understand our users, we may analyze the Personal Data that is provided to the Website in aggregate form. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may share this aggregate data with our affiliates, agents and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Passively Collected Information
When you interact with us through the Website, we receive and store certain additional non- personally-identifiable information. For example, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time. We only use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Website or Services so that we can make the Website appealing to as many users as possible, and improve our Services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our users, collectively, use the Website. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and the Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience.
As an example: we use Google Analytics to collect and review this information and to connect with Google Analytics Advertising Features. This allows us to better inform and target relevant groups.
Information collected by Google Analytics will only be merged with your personal data only if we get your prior consent to do so.
Google Analytics offers you to opt out of the data collection here. It is also possible to stop this data collection and information sending in your browsers settings.
On 25 May 2018 a new European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), comes into force. It imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations which offer goods and services to EU individuals or which collect and analyze their data. The GDPR applies no matter where the data is processed and where the organization processing data is physically located. It is meant to strengthen users rights in light of fast technological developments and increased globalization of business operations involving any form of processing personal data.
The GDPR regulates the “processing” of personal data for EU individuals, which includes collection, storage, transfer, or use. The term “personal data” is very broad under new regulation and extends to any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (a “data subject”).
The GDPR also expands the concept of sensitive data (personal data revealing: racial/ethnic origin, political/religious etc views, trade union membership, health, sex life and sexual orientation, genetic and biometric data).
DIVVA The Smart Digital Consultancy can assure its users that it does not process any of such sensitive data.
DIVVA The Smart Digital Consultancy is committed to comply with EU data protection regulation and provides its EU users with a number of important assurances, such as the following:
