Data Storage and Processing

Equals 3 stores all structured (“contact list”) data on database servers, encrypted at rest (on disk) by the production storage array (US hosting) or database-management system (other hosting geographies).

 

Lawful Basis Of Processing

Equals 3 has appended its Privacy Policy to include customers consent to include personal information including name, email addresses. We collect publicly accessible data from the social media networks usually is based on “legitimate interest” (and not on the social media users’ consent). The concept of “legitimate interest” and the associated balancing of interests are regulated under Art. 6 (f) GDPR. Equals 3 sees no relevant changes in the legal foundation of such data processing operations. Equals 3 will be happy to support our customers in their balancing of interests and their documentation of the legitimate interest. Please note that Equals 3 is not a law firm and may not provide individual legal advice to our customers, but only general opinion and “food for thought.”

 

Withdrawal of consent (or opt out)

Equals 3 has updated its Privacy Policy and Terms to include an email address whereby any customer can request an opt out. We will delete their information and provide an email to the effect of deletion of personal information.

 

Deletion

 You will be able to request a GDPR-compliant delete off your name and email address in your Equals 3 application login.
