The General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”), which became effective on May 25, 2018, creates consistent data protection rules across Europe. It applies to all companies that process data about individuals in the European Union. The GDPR imposes responsibilities on “data controllers” and “data processors.” A company is a “data controller” when it has the responsibility of determining why and how personal data is processed. A company is a “data processor” when it processes personal data on behalf of a data controller. While RentVision mostly operates as a data controller, there are some instances in which RentVision operates as a data processor, particularly when working with customers and other third parties. To the extent RentVision acts as a data processor, RentVision is committed to complying with the GDPR’s specific requirements for data processors and we will work with customers and to update any related privacy policies on other websites.
This Policy is designed to address only RentVision’s data practices with respect to activities conducted by RentVision on its own behalf or through the Site. For those activities, RentVision acts as a data controller and may appoint service providers to act as data processor on its behalf, such as Google Analytics, and as further set forth herein. RentVision is committed to ensuring that it has appropriate terms in place with such partners so that both RentVision and the partners comply with their respective requirements under the GDPR.
Data controllers must have a legal basis to process your personal information. RentVision’s legal basis to process your information arises from RentVision’s need to use your information to provide you with the services and customer support and to advance RentVision’s other legitimate interests (including operating the Site, conducting direct and indirect marketing, etc.), as discussed more fully in this Policy. RentVision also relies on your consent in some circumstances as the basis for processing your personal information.
If you are located in the European Union you may have certain rights under the GDPR. These may include the right (i) to request access and obtain a copy of your personal information, (ii) to request rectification or erasure, (iii) to restrict the processing of your personal information, and (iv) if applicable, to data portability. In certain circumstances, you also have the right to object to the processing of your personal information. To make such a request, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will consider and act upon any request in accordance with applicable data protection laws. If you are a resident of the European Union and you believe we are unlawfully processing your personal information, you also have the right to file a complaint with your local data protection supervisory authority. You can find their contact details here: https://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/article29/item-detail.cfm?item_id=612080.
To the extent it is applicable, this policy is made under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. There are some rare exceptions to the commitments set out above.
For more general inquiries, the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Canada oversees the administration of the privacy legislation in the private sector. The Commissioner also acts as a kind of ombudsman for privacy disputes. The Information and Privacy Commissioner can be reached at:
