In certain cases, Meduza (or, to be more precise, the Latvian company Medusa Project SIA, or “we”) collects personal data from its readers and processes it. In this document, we describe what we process and how we do it. We apply these principles provided that the readers agree to use Meduza services.
Reader refers to any individual using any services rendered by Meduza.
Reader data refers to any information concerning the reader known to Meduza.
Personal data refers to any reader-related information.
Processing refers to the collection, storage, change, provision of access to, and transfer of reader personal data.
Meduza refers to any public service of Medusa Project SIA available at meduza.io, amp.meduza.io, special.meduza.io.
We ensure the confidentiality of personal data and apply all necessary organizational and technical measures to protect personal data. In certain cases, Meduza engages its partners in personal data processing, and transfers this data to them. In these cases, we make sure that adequate security measures are taken. It means that we do not transfer any data to partners whose data storage principles seem doubtful to us, or if we know that these principles substantially differ from those provided for in this document.
We may store personal data of two types:
We process personal data due to several reasons:
We only use the data collected from you (first and last name in chats, email address for newsletters), subject to your consent to the principles of processing this data.
As already mentioned above, sometimes we transfer personal data to our partners, while taking adequate measures to ensure their security. For instance, we transfer data to mailing services, or analytics systems. We may also provide data at the request of the Latvian Republic law enforcement authorities (although we cannot imagine why they might need it).
Personal data is processed in the European Union and/or European Economic Area (EU/EEA), but in certain cases may be transferred to states outside the EU/EEA and processed there. Transfer of data beyond the borders of the EU/EEA may only occur on legal grounds, and subject to ensuring an adequate data protection level.
Storage periods for various data may differ.
Personal data stored by us is not used to personalize anything anywhere (in the language of law, it means that we do not take any automated decisions, and do not create any profiles based on this data).
We have the right to change the above principles at any time on a unilateral basis. We are not going to do this secretly — instead, we will warn our readers about it at least a month before any changes enter into force, right here on this page.
