Effective Date: January 1, 2018
ADDRESSED TO ALL DATA SUBJECTS
Genestial was founded in 2016 by a team of professionals in Technology, Engineering, and eLearning. We rely on strong partnerships with expert individuals and organizations to offer our clients high-quality services.
Genestial is a passionate team of specialists in Technology, Engineering & eLearning, providing solutions for individuals, small businesses, and large enterprises.
“Personal Data” is defined by GDPR as any information relating to an identifiable natural person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
“Sensitive Personal Data” refers to personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation (referred to as “Special Categories of Data” in the EU General Data Protection Regulation).
As part of the projects, studies, and other engagements which are part of Genestial’s normal activity, we will process information you share with us. This may include:
We use the data we collect for the purpose of fulfilling our contractual obligations as to the execution of a particular project, research study or other engagement. We assure you that we adhere to these principles:
We receive and store certain types of information automatically when you use our websites, applications and digital services:
Participation in our projects/studies is always voluntary and you may withdraw at any time. If you withdraw from a project, we may continue processing the data we collected during the time you were a participant. By contacting us at [email protected] you may choose to exercise any of your privacy rights listed here:
Furthermore, if you believe that Genestial has not complied with the Privacy laws or the terms of this Policy, you have the right to file a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority (click here for details).
For our projects and research studies, we never knowingly collect data directly from minor children (under age 18). If a specific project is about children, they may participate only after we obtain the explicit consent of a parent or guardian. Once data collection about them has been authorized by a parent or guardian, all the provisions of this notice apply to data about children of any age (up to the age of 18).
To conduct its business, Genestial may transfer Personal Data to third-party suppliers or partners that operate in other countries outside the EU. Some of these countries have a different data protection regime, which may provide a lower level of protection than is found in Cyprus or the EU. To ensure that a similar level of data protection is implemented in countries outside the EU, Genestial partners and service providers have entered into contractual agreements that include EU Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses for such data transfers.
We will retain your data for as long as needed for the purposes described in this Notice and in accordance with applicable law. When you are no longer an active respondent, we will continue to use data about your demographic characteristics, as well as behaviour and preference data for historical and statistical research, but we keep this data separate from data that could be used to identify you, and strictly limit access to your identifying data. All data will be permanently de-identified when we no longer need to identify you for audit, legal, fraud prevention or related purposes.
This Notice replaces any other statement, whether written or oral, made to you about our practices with respect to Genestials’s collection and use of personal data about you.
