The protection of the privacy of personal data is our commitment

Brain One has a fundamental commitment to protect the privacy of its users’ personal data, on the digital platforms where they are present.

This document seeks to explain what personal data are, the type of data collected and for what purposes they are intended, how they are processed, for how long they are kept and also which means of communication to use for users to exercise their rights.

 

General data protection regulation

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) establishes rules regarding the processing of data from people from the European Union (EU). Regardless of the technology used to process these data, the GDPR protects personal data, both in automated and manual processing.

It is irrelevant how personal data is stored. However, they are subject to the protection requirements set out in the GDPR.

 

What is personal data?

Personal data is all information, of any nature and regardless of its support, including sound and image, relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

An identifiable person is a person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, namely by reference to a name, identification number, location data, identifiers electronically or to one or more elements specific to his physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.
