What is Personal Data?
Personal data is any information relating to a person, for example a name and an address, but also specific details and characteristics on the individual. The legislation distinguishes between ordinary (non-sensitive) personal data and sensitive personal data. Sensitive data is all data that tells something about a person’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, membership of a trade union, physical or mental health condition or sexual life. At Brandheroes we strive to avoid saving any kind of sensitive data regarding all our external stakeholders (e.g. influencers and customers).

Why do we process personal data?
Our business at Brandheroes is to identify and engage with local micro influencers and connect them with relevant brands and campaigns. Doing this, we collect and process personal data from our influencers, but only in the form of personal data that is necessary and relevant for the specific task. In fact most of the information we collect from our influencers is content that is already public available on the influencers social media profile. At Brandheroes, all processing of personal data is based on a relevant legal basis. In the case of influencers, this basis is a formal consent to our Terms & Conditions.
What do we do with your data?
First of all, Brandheroes is very committed to the security of your personal data. In order to avoid unauthorized access or unauthorized disclosure and to warrant the accuracy and the correct use of the data, we have put the according technical and organizational procedures in place to secure and protect your data. You can read more about our procedures in our GDPR report. In general, we use data from influencers for communicating, delivering prizes and to serve you with relevant brands and campaings. Personal data are kept on record for the duration of our collaboration with each influencer.
Do we share your personal data?
We don’t sell your data and we only share personal data with partners and suppliers with whom we have entered into a formal Data Processing Agreement with, either in the form of our Vendor Data Processing Agreement or by adhering to the data processing agreement used by our partners. Formal data processing agreements are meant to guarantee that data is always processed in compliance with the relevant regulation.
Similarly, we always make sure to comply with all relevant regulation when we ourselves act as data processer for third parties by basing our collaboration either on our general data processing agreement or on a data processing agreement used by our customers.
What are your rights?
An important purpose of the revised regulation on data security is to clearly define the rights of so-called data subjects (persons whose personal data is processed).
When working with Brandheroes, you have the right to be informed about the personal data being processed, as well as the right to withdraw your consent to our Terms & Conditions at any time.
If, for any reason, you fear that we may have saved your personal data inappropriately or would like your data to be edited or deleted, you can contact [email protected]
We regularly evaluate our processes for collecting and processing personal data in order to make sure that all we do is done in compliance with the relevant regulation. Furthermore, each December we’ll perform an publish an compliance audit, where all of our processes and security measures are thoroughly assessed, alligned with our GDPR report that was carried out, when GDPR entered into force May 2018 and updated December 2019.
