EU users

On 25 May 2018 a new European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), came into force. It imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organisations which offer goods and services to EU individuals or which collect and analyse their data. The GDPR applies no matter where the data is processed and where the organisation processing data is physically located. It is meant to strengthen users rights in light of fast technological developments and increased globalisation of business operations involving any form of processing personal data.

The GDPR regulates the “processing” of personal data for EU individuals, which includes collection, storage, transfer, or use. The term “personal data” is very broad under new regulation and extends to any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (a “data subject”).

The GDPR also expands the concept of sensitive data (personal data revealing: racial/ethnic origin, political/religious etc views, trade union membership, health, sex life and sexual orientation, genetic and biometric data). My Honesty Box can assure its users that it does not process any of such sensitive data.

My Honesty Box is committed to comply with EU data protection regulation and provides its EU users with a number of important assurances, such as the following:

  • We will keep Your data within My Honesty Box and our trusted third parties except where disclosure is required by law, for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies.
  • Some of our trusted third parties may need to transfer personal data overseas. Being responsible for its users personal data, My Honesty Box always ensures that Your data remains protected and secure when being transferred.
  • My Honesty Box will process Your data only in accordance with legitimate purpose, i.e. to provide and improve our services. My Honesty Box follows Your instructions regarding storage and processing of Your data. Importantly, the consent given by You to be provided with information about a variety of products and services My Honesty Box offers can be withdrawn at any time.
  • My Honesty Box users have the “right to be forgotten”, which means the right to require that My Honesty Box erases personal data about You in certain conditions, including if the personal data is no longer necessary for the original purpose of the processing or if the data subject withdraws consent for the processing.
  • You will now also have the right, in certain circumstances, to receive the personal data that You have provided to My Honesty Box in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
  • My Honesty Box has and will maintain technical and organisational measures to ensure security of Your data.
  • My Honesty Box will notify You of a security incident without undue delay after becoming aware of the security incident.
