1. Terminology 

1.1. Personal information is information that can be used directly or indirectly to identify or contact an individual. For example, you can be identified by your name, address, and phone number, but you can sometimes also be identified by providing information about your family or similar information. Personal information may also be information about your health, which is considered sensitive and is therefore treated with more care.

1.2. Processing is everything we do with the information we have about you. It includes that we collect the information, transfer it and save it to be analysed or to improve our services.

1.3. Personal Data Controller is the person responsible for ensuring that your information is properly protected and processed correctly. We are responsible for all the information we treat and have about you. However, we are not responsible for any information you provide, for example, in a app on your phone unless we have developed it. The reason for this is that we do not own the app and thus cannot determine what personal information it collects.

1.4. Third party is an individual, company or agency that is not part of our company and we do not have a business relationship with. It is someone outside the company.
