Privacy Policy and GDPR Data Processor Agreement

This Privacy Policy and GDPR Data Processor Agreement describes the practices and policies of Nordic Backup (“the Data Processor”) regarding the collection and protection of Personal Data supplied by users or collected by us from users of Nordic Backup websites and the Nordic Backup services (“the Service”).

Nordic Backup has, and always will, take your privacy and the protection of your data very seriously. Our privacy policy has always been about protecting you, which has made it very easy for us to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679.

This Privacy Policy also acts as the GDPR Data Processor Agreement between you (“the Data Owner”) and Nordic Backup for as long you are a customer or partner of Nordic Backup. Nordic Backup is required to comply with privacy protection laws of the country where you the Data Owner, reside.

Nordic Backup defines “Personal Data” as any data from which it is practical to directly determine the identity of an individual.

By registering to use the Service, you agree (1) to comply with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and (2) Nordic Backup may collect, process and use your Personal Data as described in this Privacy.

Personal Data will only be stored and processed by Nordic Backup in the country where it was collected.

Information Nordic Backup Collects about you

Personal Data

Once you register with Nordic Backup and signed in to the Service, you are not anonymous to Nordic Backup. When registering with Nordic Backup, you provide your Personal Data, which may include your full name, company name, company tax id, phone number, your title, address, city, state, country, zip code, a user name, one or more email addresses, and a password.

All information collected by Nordic Backup is used for internal purposes of providing the Service, providing support to you, and to improve services. Using aggregated non-identifying information supplied by users allows Nordic Backup to understand its user base and to improve services.

When backing data up with the Service, you send us the data you have selected for backup including relevant file system information containing names of files and directories. Nordic Backup also records your IP address for security purposes when you submit information.

Even though the backup data you are backing up with the Service are strongly encrypted with your private encryption key and Nordic Backup has no access to the unencrypted backup data, the backup data is also considered Personal Data and protected under this agreement.

Nordic Backup automatically receives and records information in our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you request. You should be aware that other websites visited before entering the Nordic Backup websites might place Personal Data within a User’s URL during a visit to their website, and Nordic Backup has no control over such websites.
