Security of your personal data:
As part of the Protect My Privacy customer onboarding process your personal identification data, Photo ID, and any other biometric data is encrypted once it has been expertly verified by our service provider. Protect My Privacy does not have access to your encrypted data as only you will have the required digital encryption key to access it.

Sharing your personal data with an organisation’s Data Protection Officer (DPO):
In order for your data protection request to be processed by those organisations you have selected in the Protect My Privacy app, their DPO may request access to view your encrypted verified personal identification to ensure you are who you say you are.

You will be asked to provide your explicit consent to allow the DPO to view your verified identification, as we need to be able to decrypt certain data in order for them to confirm its accuracy (e.g. email address, phone number). We also need to be able to send/provide access to view this information to companies with whom we are interacting on your behalf.

We use multiple rotating keys to encrypt your data; there is no master key. Your private key is never transmitted to our servers.

Only when you give your explicit consent will the DPO be able to view your verified identification. When we provide the DPO access to your verified identification we ensure that only the designated recipient of this information is able to access it.

It is the responsibility of the DPO to satisfy themselves that you are a customer or employee or ex-employee of theirs. In order to do this, they may ask for additional information from you, such as a date or amount of a previous bill, a previous address, or a customer number.

Social media platforms:

When we use social media platforms e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, we only operate it so as to promote our own business and we would not knowingly engage in activities that go beyond this scope. Customers (and other data subjects) are advised to refer to the respective privacy notices of these social media platforms to check their data protection and privacy rights. Protect My Privacy cannot be held responsible for third-party social media platforms or website activities.

Storage of data:

Customer data is stored in the European Union in either the Netherlands or in Ireland.

Transfer and access to personal data:

Protect My Privacy will only transfer data outside of the EEA, UK, Jersey, and Guernsey where it is necessary for the performance of the contract agreed by you.

Where the destination of the data transfer is outside the EEA, UK, Jersey, and Guernsey and does not include a third country that has an “adequacy/equivalence” status, as recognised by the EU Commission, we would always ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place.

Protect My Privacy engages the services of those vendors who are operating under the respective data protection compliant agreements and where they are using Standard Contractual Clauses or other approved data transfer mechanisms, where appropriate.

Where we cannot guarantee these safeguards, we would always request your consent before the data is transferred.

Any transfer of data is done in a secure way and in compliance with Data Protection Laws.

Retention of data:

Protect My Privacy will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected.
