We respect your personal information

Your integrity is important for us on Medam and we want to be transparent with the information we collect and how we use it. That’s why we think the new general data protection regulation (GDPR), which is applied since May 25th, 2018, makes it clearer for what rights you have as a customer, and what obligations we have as a company.

Below we describe every information we collect, why we collect the information, legal basis for our usage, how you can take control over your information and how to contact us.

All treatment of personal information within Medam takes place in accordance with applicable privacy laws. As of May 25th, 2018, the so-called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies within the EU / EEA.

The legal basis for Medam’s processing of your personal data is to fulfill our agreement with you

Medam collects and treats your personal information to be able to fulfill our agreement.

In cases where processing is necessary for purposes relating to Medam’s or third party’s legitimate interests, the processing can be based on a balance of interest. Interests like these include our commercial interest in maintaining a good customer relationship or providing you with information that is relevant to your use of the Service. Thus, “legitimate interests” means our interest in conducting and managing our business to enable us to provide you with the best possible service with a good and safe user experience. Eligible interests may also refer to treatment that is also in your own or third party’s interest. When we process your personal information based on a balance of interests, we ensure that we consider and balance the possible impact of the treatment on you (both positive and negative) as well as your interests and rights under the applicable data protection legislation. In case you have any opinions or objections against our treatment based on a balance of interests, you are entitled to object to such treatment at any time. For more information about your rights, please see the information under the heading “Your rights and choices” below. Medam may also treat personal information with support and approval from you.

Medam may need to treat personal information to fulfill legal obligations, e.g., accounting purposes or as a result of a court or government decision (i.e., the purpose stated in paragraph 11).

It may happen that the same personal data is treated for multiple purposes and/or based on more than one of the legal grounds listed above.

Safety and Transfer of personal information to a third party

We will not share, sell, transfer or in another way disclose personal information beyond the terms of this text, unless we are required to do so by law or as a result of a court order or if we have received your consent to such disclosure or if you have purchased the Service through a third party.

Medam may disclose personal information to a third party, e.g., the police or other authority, in case of investigation of a suspected crime or if we are required to provide such information on the basis of law and authority decision.

Medam may hire suppliers, on Medam’s account, to perform the services. The execution of these services may result in that the external suppliers, both within and outside of EU/ESS, have access to your personal information. These external suppliers will treat the personal information on our behalf in accordance with personal data agreements and our instructions. Personal information advisers that’s granted access to your personal information have no right to use your personal information for purposes other than the purposes stated in this text, but will primarily be used to the extent that is required to provide the Service.

Transfer of personal information to a third country

Medam only collaborates with partners which treats personal information within EU/EES. In case Medam chooses to hire suppliers outside of EU/EES, e.g. cloud service providers, Medam will in those cases take special safety precautions, such as signing agreements that includes standardized data transfer clauses that have been adopted by the EU Commission and are available on the EU Commission website or companies that maintain the same level of protection as within the EU / EEA by, for example, joined the so-called Privacy Shield Agreement between the EU and the United States.

Security for the protection of personal information

Medam protects your privacy and ensures a high level of security for your personal information. Radonova has taken appropriate security measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, modification, dissemination or destruction. All processing of your personal data is done with respect to your privacy.

Storage and sorting of personal information

The treatment is in accordance with current legislation and means that personal information will not be stored for a longer period than necessary for the purpose of the treatment. We will store your personal information until the service you have chosen to be completed is finished. The service is considered completed ten years after the results of the Service have been approved. This is due to Medam’s ten-year warranty. Some information may be stored longer due to other legal requirements, e.g. the accounting law.

The same personal information can be stored in several different locations for different purposes. This may mean that deleted personal information which no longer is deemed necessary may remain stored in another system on the basis of other legal basis or for other purpose where the personal information is still needed.
