DATA PROTECTION SETTING GDPR

The new EU security regulation harmonizes and at the same time tightens the processing of personal data in the EU. You will find the Method Makia revised GDPR Privacy Policy here and Terms of Use here.

The purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is to harmonize data protection legislation within the EU, thus facilitating the provision of services across the EU. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the current Personal Data Act and will be applied almost as is. One of the key changes in the GDPR is the obligation of the registrar to demonstrate that the processing of personal data has been complied with.

The purpose of the GDPR is to enable citizens to better manage their information. The GDPR regulates, among other things, the collection, processing and disclosure of personal data, and the associated rights and obligations. Almost all businesses deal with personal information. The rules are the same for all businesses operating within the EU regardless of their location.

WHAT DOES THE GDPR MEAN FOR METHOD MAKIA’S CUSTOMERS?

As our customer you act in accordance with the GDPR as a registrar. All information that can be directly or indirectly linked to a specific person is personal information. The personal register you create is located in our service and makes us (Method Makia Oy) a personal data processor.

We do not have the right to use this personal information for any purpose other than the provision of the service or for that mandated of us by legislation.

As a registrar, we are responsible for the personal register and we are responsible for legitimate data collection and confidential data processing. We are also required to ensure that our privacy policy is up to date and in compliance with the regulation.

The GDPR requires that the registrar and the data processor together enter into a personal data processing agreement. By using Method Makia, you agree to this agreement between us.

DO YOU WANT TO DELETE YOUR INFORMATION FROM THE REGISTER?

Our customer register is located only in our service. All you need do to remove personal information from our service is to delete the personal information on your profile. You can also request customer service to remove your information.

Method Makia has a feature that stores all invoiced invoices on the service, and in this case, if a customer requests the deletion of their information, the invoices will not be removed, because they are accounting records. Accounting records must be retained, and you have the right to use these records upon request.

If you delete your personal information, the training and diet information collected during your use of the service will be permanently anonymized.

HOW HAS METHOD MAKIA PREPARED FOR GDPR?

We have been preparing for GDPR for some time now. Among other things, we have reviewed our internal documentation concerning personal data, trained our staff and reviewed our processes related to personal data. We have also made it possible to remove your user account and related personal information from within our service. In the future, we will be introducing the functionality that you can download your own personal data from Method Makia in a machine-readable format. And lastly, we have upgraded our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use to be GDPR compliant.
