Processing of Personal Data
We process personal data mainly for booking purposes as well as the selling process leading up to a booking, the information process that comes after a booking and the payment process that is included in the booking.
We also process personal data for marketing purposes, to reach a target audience that has a demand for accommodation. Our goal is that the recipients of our marketing message has a genuine interest in our offer. Our processing of your personal data is based on a commercial interest to market and book our properties.
We also process personal data for employment purposes as well as the recruitment process that leads up to an employment.
When the processing of personal data is based on a legitime interest it requires an assessment whether the interest of the data processor is overridden by the interest of the data subjects right to protection of his or her personal data.
Processing of personal data for selling or for marketing purposes is generally allowed based on a legitime interest. This requires that the personal data is limited to what is necessary for the sale or marketing to take place. The personal data which is considered necessary is name, address, e-mail and phone number.
Collecting personal data
We use different methods to collect personal data. For example, we might ask you when and where you need accommodation on a form on our website and at the same time ask you to fill out your name and contact information. We will later use that information to contact you and send you information about accommodation that we believe is relevant for you.
According to best practice a company is required to establish their own blocking register to avoid communicating direct marketing to individuals whom has opposed themselves towards direct marketing activities. Since it’s also in EasyFlats own interest to not try to sell or market to individuals who are not interested in our offer we maintain a blocking register to avoid that. When you contact us with a request to be placed on our blocking register we end all attempts to sell to you and any direct marketing activities that are directed towards you. We document your phone number and e-mail in our blocking register to be able to accommodate you request.
When we use phone numbers for direct marketing purposes we either collect your consent for this or when we don’t have your consent we conduct a check against the NIX-register. When we conduct a check against NIX we remove the numbers that are registered in accordance with best practice.
