When may we disclose personal data?

We only share personal data within the organisation of TinyApp if and as far as reasonably necessary to perform and develop our services.

 

We do not share personal data with third parties outside of TinyApp’s organization unless one of the following circumstances applies:

 

It is necessary for the purposes of this Privacy Policy 

To the extent that third parties need access to personal data to perform the services, TinyApp has taken the appropriate contractual and organisational measures to ensure that personal data are processed exclusively for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. 

 

For legal reasons

We may share personal data with third parties outside TinyApp’s organization if we have a good-faith belief that access to and use of the personal data is reasonably necessary to: (i) meet any applicable law, regulation, and/or court order; (ii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; and/or (iii) protect the interests, properties or safety of TinyApp, our users or the public in accordance with the law. When possible, we will inform Users about such transfer and processing.

 

For other legitimate reasons

If TinyApp is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we may transfer personal data to the third party involved. However, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of all personal data. We will give notice to all customers and Users concerned before the personal data are transferred or become subject to a different privacy policy.

 

With explicit consent

We may share personal data with third parties outside TinyApp’s organization for other reasons than the one mentioned before, when we have the data subject’s explicit consent to do so. The data subject has the right to withdraw this consent at all times.

 

Aggregate or anonymous information about you may be shared with advertisers, publishers, business partners, and other third parties.

 

Transfers outside Europe

We do not regularly transfer our users' personal data from our register outside the EU and the EEA. However, we may transfer personal information outside the EU or the European Economic Area when our affiliate partner is located outside these areas. In these cases, we will take appropriate safeguards to ensure the rights and freedoms of the data subjects in accordance with applicable data protection laws, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (679/2016).

 

The transfer of personal data outside the European Union or the European Economic Area will always take place on any of the following legitimate grounds:

  • The European Commission has decided that an adequate level of data protection is ensured in the recipient country;

  • TinyApp has taken appropriate safeguards to transfer personal data using standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission. The registrant then has the right to obtain a copy of these standard terms by contacting us at support@tinyapp.biz; or

  • The data subject has expressly consented to the transfer of his or her personal data, or there is another legitimate reason for the transfer of the personal data.

For example, a Service Provider providing us with a Service may transfer personal data to the United States in connection with the provision of the Service. In this case, appropriate safeguards for the protection of personal data have been put in place, with the service provider committing itself to US-EU agreement, so-called Privacy Shield, or using the standard privacy policy clauses accepted by the EU Commission.

Purposes and legitimate grounds for the processing

Purposes

There are several purposes for the processing of personal data by TinyApp:

 

To provide our services and carry out contractual obligations 

TinyApp processes personal data in the first place to be able to deliver services via Application to its customers and Users and to run, maintain and develop TinyApp’s business. TinyApp uses personal data in order to conduct its contractual obligations. TinyApp uses the data for example to offer essential functionalities of the Application. If Users contact our customer service, we will use the provided information in order to answer questions or solve complaints. 

 

For customer communication 

TinyApp may process personal data to contact customers and Users regarding our services and to inform customers and Users of changes to our services and products. Data may also be used for research and analysis to improve our services and websites. 

 

For quality improvement and trend analysis

TinyApp may process information about the use of the services to improve the quality of our services e.g. by analyzing any trends in the use of our services. When possible, we will do this using only aggregated, non-personally identifiable data.

 

Legitimate grounds for processing

TinyApp processes personal data to perform our contractual obligations and to comply with legal obligations. Furthermore, we process personal data to pursue our legitimate interest to maintain and develop our businesses. 

 

How do we store personal data?

We store personal data on secure servers that are managed by us and our service providers. Personal data that we store are subject to security and access controls, including username and password authentication as well as data encryption where appropriate. However, please remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure. We will use the best possible methods to protect personal data.

 

Storage period

TinyApp does not store personal data longer than is legally permitted and necessary for the purposes of providing our services. The storage period depends on the nature of the information and the purposes of the processing. The maximum period may, therefore, vary per use. In general, TinyApp deletes all personal data of Users when the relevant user relationship ends and when TinyApp when the User no longer uses the Application.
