“Configuration data”
We collect your direct input to our cloud service Cookiebot (the “Service”) after login, like the domain name(s) of the website(s) where you implement the Service and configuration of the content, looks and behavior towards website visitors (“End Users”).
“End User Data”
Data generated by End Users browsing your website(s) using the Service. When an End User submits a consent from your website(s), the following data are automatically logged at Villanelmar:

•The date and time of the consent.
•User agent of the End User’s browser.

•An anonymous, random and encrypted key value.
•The End User’s consent state, serving as proof of consent.

The key and consent state are also saved in the End User’s browser in the first party cookie “CookieConsent” so that the website can automatically read and respect the End User’s consent on all subsequent page requests and future End User sessions for up to 12 months. The key is used for proof of consent and an option to verify that the consent state stored in the End User’s browser is unaltered compared to the original consent submitted to Villanelmar.

If you activate the Service feature “bulk consent” to enable consent for multiple websites by a single End User submission, the Service will also store a separate random, unique ID with the End User’s consent.

•You enable the bulk consent feature in the Service configuration.
•The End User allows third party cookies through browser settings.
•The End User has disabled “Do Not Track” through browser settings.
•The End User accepts all or at least “preferences” types of cookies when consenting.
“System Generated Data”
The Service automatically creates and stores meta data on basis of the other types of data, e.g.:
•Subscription data, like start date, latest invoice date and the result of a mandatory VAT number validation. Issued invoices are stored so that you may access any issued invoices from within the Service Manager.
•Definitions of the cookies found when the Service has scanned your website(s), including reports on the result of each scan.
•Aggregated statistical data on End User consents.

5. How do we protect your information?
Villanelmar implements the following technical, physical and organizational measures to maintain the safety of your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized use, unauthorized modification, disclosure or access and against all other unlawful forms of processing.
5.1. Availability
The Service utilizes the extensive features of the cloud environment to ensure high availability, like full redundancy, load balancing, automatic capacity scaling, continuous data backup and geo-replication along with a traffic manager for automatic geographical failover on datacenter level disasters. All failover mechanisms are fully automated.
No personal data is stored permanently outside Villanelmar cloud platforms. The physical security is thereby maintained by Villanelmar subcontractors, see clause 7. Microsoft’s datacenters comply with industry standards such as ISO 27001 for physical security and availability, e.g. by using security staff around the clock, two-factor access control using biometric and card readers, barriers, fencing, security cameras and other measures.
5.2. Integrity
To ensure integrity, all data transits are encrypted to align with best practices for protecting confidentiality and data integrity. E.g. all supplied credit card information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database only to be accessible by those who are authorized to access such systems and who are required to keep the information confidential.
For data in transit, the Service uses industry-standard transport protocols between devices and Microsoft datacenters and within datacenters themselves.
5.3. Confidentiality
All personnel are subject to full confidentiality and any subcontractors and subprocessors are required to sign a confidentiality agreement if not full confidentiality is part of the main agreement between the parties.

Whenever personal data is accessed by authorized personnel the access is only possible over an encrypted connection. When accessing the data in a database, the IP number of the person accessing the data must also be pre-authorized to obtain access.
Any device being used to access personal data is login protected by Villanelmar Azure Active Directory (AAD), Microsoft’s cloud based identity and access management service, and has Villanelmar corporate antivirus solution installed. If any personal data are temporarily stored on a device, the storage unit on the device must also be strongly encrypted.
On premise devices storing personal data temporarily is at all times, except when not being actively used or relocated under uninterrupted supervision, locked in a safe. Personal data are never stored on mobile media like USB sticks and DVD’s.
5.4. Transparency
Villanelmar will at all times keep you informed about changes to the processes to protect data privacy and security, including practices and policies. You may at any time request information on where and how data is stored, secured and used. Villanelmar will also provide the summaries of any independent audits of the Service.
5.5. Isolation
All access to personal data is blocked by default, using a zero privileges policy. Access to personal data is restricted to individually authorized personnel. Villanelmar Security and Privacy Officer issues authorizations and maintains a log of granted authorizations. Authorized personnel are granted a minimum access on a need-to-have basis through our AAD.
5.6. The ability to intervene
Villanelmar enables your rights of access, rectification, erasure, blocking and objection mainly by providing built-in functions for data handling in the Service Manager, by offering the option to send instructions through Villanelmar helpdesk and also by informing about and offering the customer the possibility of objection when Villanelmar is planning to implement changes to relevant practices and policies.
The overall responsibility for data security lies with Villanelmar Data Protection Officer who educates and updates all personnel on the data security measures outlined in Villanelmar security handbook and this Privacy Policy.
5.7. Monitoring
Villanelmar uses security reports to monitor access patterns and to proactively identify and mitigate potential threats. Administrative operations, including system access, are logged to provide an audit trail if unauthorized or accidental changes are made.

System performance and availability is monitored from both internal and external monitoring services.
5.8. Personal Data breach notification
In the event that your data is compromised Villanelmar will notify you and competent Supervisory Authority(ies) within 72 hours by e-mail with information about the extent of the breach, affected data, any impact on the Service and Villanelmar action plan for measures to secure the data and limit any possible detrimental effect on the data subjects.
“Personal data breach” means a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed in connection with the provision of the Service.
6. How we use cookies

7. Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
Villanelmar does not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties any personally identifiable information.
This does not include trusted third parties or subcontractors who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you. Such trusted parties may have access to personally identifiable information on a need-to-know basis and will be contractually obliged to keep your information confidential.
We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety. Furthermore, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
7.2 Legally required disclosure
Villanelmar will not disclose the customer’s data to law enforcement except when instructed by you or where it is required by law. When governments make a lawful demand for customer data from Villanelmar, Villanelmar strives to limit the disclosure. Villanelmar will only release specific data mandated by the relevant legal demand.
If compelled to disclose your data, Villanelmar will promptly notify you and provide a copy of the demand unless legally prohibited from doing so.
