This Policy applies to any of your personal data collected and used, or processed by or on behalf of Profila GmbH, a private limited liability company organized and existing under the laws of Switzerland, with registered office at Mättliweg 10, 6353, Weggis, Lucerne, registered with the legal entities register SHAB (Gazette of Swiss Commercial Register) under number CHE 498.045.399, info@profila.com (hereinafter “Profila”, “us” or “we”) in the framework of your use of our website www.profila.com  (the “Website”), the Profila mobile application (the “App”), the web-based Brand platform (the “Platform”) or other services (collectively the “Services” or “Service”).

This Policy is complemented with specific privacy notices related to particular Services and which we will provide you with whenever we require your personal data (for example, via individual communication services, newsletters, reminders, surveys, offers, events, etc.).

Except as described herein, we do not sell, rent or otherwise share or disclose your personal information to third parties, unless specifically requested by you and permission granted by you through the Profila service.

If you accept the provisions of this Policy, you are agreeing to us processing your personal data in the ways that are set out in this Policy.

At the end of this Policy, you will find some definitions of certain key concepts used in this Policy and which are capitalised (for example, Personal Data, Processing, Data Controller…).

  1. WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

Summary: The person or entity responsible for processing your data may depend on the situation. Sometimes this is Profila, but sometimes also a Consumer or Brand. Profila processes Personal Data about you when you use the App. However, certain Personal Data you generate (Consumer-Generated Data) or share via the App (via Consumer-Initiated Interactions) may fall under a consumers or Brands responsibility and may be subject to the privacy policy of those you share it with.

 

2.1.      Personal Data controlled by Profila

You acknowledge and agree that by using the App, Profila may Process Data about you, including Personal Data, as set out in this Privacy Policy. Profila will be considered a data controller in relation to all Personal Data we explicitly solicit from you (e.g. information you are asked upon registration to the App, such as your first and last name, email address and phone number, nationality and country of residency) and for Personal Data we Process in order to provide you with the services in the App (e.g. servicing you in case of any questions or problems with the App).

2.2.      Personal Data controlled independently by Profila and yourself

Apart from the Personal Data we explicitly solicit from you and that is Processed in accordance with section 2.1, there is Personal Data you generate willingly / on your own initiative. This concerns, amongst others, Personal Data that you include:

  • in your “My Profila” account (e.g. your work address or languages you speak);
  • in your responses to a Quiz that is saved under your “Categories” (e.g; you answered in a food-related Quiz that you are a vegetarian or a vegan), and
  • in a Moment you created (and which was not send to a Brand);

(hereinafter together referred to as “Consumer-Generated Data”).

In addition, there is Personal Data you willingly / on your own initiative share with third parties. This includes, amongst other, Personal Data that is shared:

  • when you exercise a Data Subject Right towards a Brand (e.g. your personal and contact details, and any other Personal Data in the Request Document in Annex 1 to the EULA);
  • when you accept a Subscription Offer from a Brand and grant a Personal Data License to such Brand;
  • when you respond to a Brand Moment from a Brand Subscriber;

(hereinafter together referred as “Consumer-Initiated Interactions”).

In relation to Consumer-Generated Data and Consumer-Initiated Interactions, you are considered an independent controller in addition to Profila for the following reasons:

  • Profila only determines the means (the “how”) of the Processing of Personal Data – by designing the App with its consumer-empowerment functionalities and by making the App available to the Consumer, and provides for the safe storage and security of Personal Data; The purpose for providing these functionalities (which Process Personal Data) is the overall operation of its App and Platform.
  • You as a Consumer are the only one who determines the purpose (the “why”) of the Processing of Personal Data – for example, which Personal Data to include in the App as Consumer-Generated Data (if any); how a Consumer’s Personal Data is managed; whether Data Rights are exercises and if so, to which Brand; whether any Personal Data gets shared as part of Consumer-Initiated Interactions, and if so, with which Brands and under which conditions; whether a Brand can send any Brand Moments and if so, the frequency thereof;

We therefore are both responsible for Personal Data which is processed in accordance with this section 2.2. Although Profila will fulfill all of its responsibilities in relation to the storage and security of such Personal Data, we also expect you to take up your own responsibilities (e.g. safe passwords, do not give other people access to your Profila account).

2.3.      Personal Data shared with Brands under a Subscription Contract

The Processing of the Personal Data by a Brand Subscriber under a Subscription Contract is subject to the Brand Privacy Terms as set out in the Subscription Offer provided to you by such Brand. It is your responsibility to read and accept (or decline) such Brand Privacy Terms before you decide to share any of your Personal Data through the App with any Brands. A Brand is considered the controller of any Personal Data that you share with the Brand under a Subscription Contract.

In this context, you can make a variety of choices about how you want to be contacted by us, through which channel (for example, email, mail, social media, phone…), for which purpose and how frequently, by adjusting the privacy setting on the relevant device or updating your user or account profile or by following the unsubscribe instructions included in the communication.

8.2.      Your California Privacy Rights

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

Profila may collect, use, and share, for business purposes, personal information about you as described in this Policy. Each category of data may be used by Profila or shared with third parties also as described in this Policy.

Residents of California have the right to request access to and deletion of the information Profila holds about them. Such requests may be submitted by email to privacy@profila.com or contact the Data Protection Coordinator at the Contact Point (see section 3 “Who can you contact in case you have questions or requests?”) ?”) or contact us via the Privacy Dashboard in the App.

PROFILA WILL NOT SELL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT.

Profila will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under CCPA. Specifically, we will not:

  • Deny access to our Website, App, Platform or Services;

California Shine the Light

Residents of the State of California, under California Civil Code § 1798.83, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed personal information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that gives either an opt-out or opt-in choice for use of your personal information by third parties (such as advertisers) for marketing purposes, the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

Profila qualifies for the alternative option. We have a comprehensive privacy statement, and provide you with details on how you may opt-in to the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your personal information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you are a California resident and request information about how to exercise your third-party disclosure choices or CCPA rights, requests may be submitted by email to privacy@profila.com or contact the Data Protection Coordinator at the Contact Point (see section 3 “Who can you contact in case you have questions or requests?”) or contact us via the Privacy Dashboard in the App.
