GDPR POLICY

Last Updated: December 24, 2019

This PRIVACY NOTICE FOR RESIDENTS OF THE EUROPEAN UNION (EU) supplements the information contained in AARDVARK’s Privacy Policy and only applies solely to visitors, users, and others who reside in any one of the EU States (“consumers” and “you”). We adopt this policy to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (DGPR).  This policy will explain how AARVDARK uses the personal data we collect from you when you use our website and explain how to exercise your rights.

AARDVARK, located at 1935 Puddingstone Drive, La Verne, CA 91750, is responsible for processing your personal data.

“Personal data” refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person who may be identified personally, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of an identifier, such as a surname, first name, an identification number, location data or an online username. The data we collect may therefore include your strictly personal data, insofar as it allows you to be identified as a particular person.

   

Conversely, some data does not allow us to identify you directly, such as your profession or your browsing data (the type of browser, terminal and operating system, the path followed on the website, etc.) but is nevertheless considered as Personal Data because it is attached and/or attributable to the former. 

 

KEY PRINCIPLES OF THE GDPR

Lawfulness, fairness, and transparency: Personal data shall be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals.

 

Purpose limitation: Personal data shall be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes. 

Data minimization: Personal data shall be adequate, relevant, and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed. 

Accuracy: Personal data shall be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay. 

Storage limitation: Personal data shall be kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organizational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals. 

Integrity and confidentiality: Personal data shall be processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organizational measures. 

Accountability: AARDVARK shall be responsible for, and be able to, demonstrate compliance with these key principles.
