We fully understand that you value your privacy. We believe privacy is about freedom and being able to decide for yourself how your data is used and by whom. This is the background behind our Privacy Principles:
We will always keep you fully informed about your data.
We make sure you understand which data from or about you we use, why we use it, how long we use it and who can use it. We enable you to remain in control of your data. We consider the data from or about you to be yours. We only use it for the purposes for which you have given it to us, or for which we collected it from you. Trusted is the data processor and you are the data controller in accordance with the Danish Act on Processing of Personal Data and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU. Trusted shall act only on instructions from you. Trusted shall implement appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration and against unauthorized disclosure, abuse or other processing in violation of the provisions laid down in the Danish Act on Processing of Personal Data and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU. Upon request, Trusted shall within reasonable time provide you with sufficient information enabling you to ensure compliance with the requirements for adequate technical and organizational security measures.
We protect your data.
Your data is yours. We keep it that way by protecting it as best as we reasonably can to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. We do this through encryption, anonymization, or pseudonymization of your data. This way we keep your data safe. We will tell you which data from or about you we use, why we use it, how long we use it, who else can use it and where it is kept. We will only use your data for the purposes we have stated to you. We keep as little of your data as possible, and only for as long as we need it. When we no longer need data we destroy it or we irreversibly anonymize it, so it is no longer linked to you. If we ask your permission to use your data for specific purposes, we also always allow you to withdraw your permission. We will keep protecting your data against unauthorized access and accidental loss as best as we reasonably can. If we engage others to use your information on our behalf, we will ensure they act in accordance with our policies. If we share your data with others, we will first ask you for permission, unless there is a legal obligation that prohibits us from asking. We are open to any questions you may have about how we use your data and we will answer them.
As we are rooted in Denmark, Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is always in effect. These laws are considered to be the most extensive in the world. They offer a high level of protection to you by only allowing us to use your data when the strict conditions of these laws are met. Our company policy on privacy and processing of personal data reflects these laws and we apply this policy globally.
