This Privacy Policy explains how Polaroid International B.V. (Polaroid, we or our) collects, stores and uses your personal data when you use the POLAROID RADIO web application (the Application). Please read this Privacy Policy carefully.

Polaroid is a company registered with the commercial register in The Netherlands (Chamber of Commerce registration number 59065982) whose registered office is at Danzigerkade 16C, 1013 AP, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Polaroid is part of the Polaroid group of companies. You may contact us on [email protected]

With regard to your personal data that we process (see paragraph 2), we are the controller within the meaning of the GDPR. This means we have certain statutory duties and responsibilities regarding our processing activities. This Privacy Policy serves to inform you on how we meet our duties and responsibilities.

2.The personal data we collect about you

When you use the Application, we and/or our third-party data processors acting on our behalf (see paragraph 5) collect the following personal data about you:

Personal data you provide to us:

  • Usage and preference data: we collect data about how you and other Application users interact with our services, preferences expressed, and settings chosen;
  • Device data: we collect data about your device, including, for example, the IP address; and
  • Log data: when you interact with our services and hardware products within the Application, we create logs, which include access dates and times, Application features or pages viewed, Application crashes and other system activity.

Personal data collected from other (third party) sources:

  • Personal data available through public sources: In order to be able to offer our services in the Application correctly and to create the best user experience, we collect personal data from third parties, such as social media platforms and analytical companies.

3. Legal bases of the processing of your personal data

The GDPR requires a legal basis for the processing of personal data. For each purpose (see paragraph 4), we will indicate the legal bases on which we process your personal data.

Our legal basis for processing your personal data is:

  • the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, or in order to take action at your request prior to the conclusion of a contract (e.g. offering our services within the Application) (purpose A and B);
  • the processing is necessary for us to comply with our legal obligations to which Polaroid is subject (purpose D and H);
  • the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests or those of a third party (purpose C, D, E, F, G, and I). The legitimate interest we pursue is the proper conduct of our business activities, such as ensuring that the content from our services is presented in the most effective manner, to troubleshoot software bugs and operational problems and provide you with information on products and offers which are relevant to you.

4.How we may store and use your information

Polaroid (and third party data processors acting on our behalf) collect, store and process your personal data:

A. to make this Application and its features available to you;

B. to provide our services to you;

C. to develop and distribute the Application;

D. where we have a legal right or duty to use or disclose your personal data (including for crime and fraud prevention and combating and to comply with a court order) or for company acquisition/asset sale;

E. to ensure that content from our services is presented in the most effective manner for you and your device;

F. to administer, secure, adapt and improve our radio services, hardware products and for internal operations, including, for example, to prevent fraud and abuse of our services; to troubleshoot software bugs and operational problems; to conduct data analysis, testing, and research; and to monitor and analyze usage and activity trends;

G. to be able to answer and handle legal requests and/or complaints;

H. to comply with legal obligations applicable to Polaroid; and

I. obtaining external (legal) advice and/or the establishment, exercise or substantiation of a legal claim.

5. Disclosure of your personal data to third parties

In some cases, we share your personal data with third parties. We only provide your personal data to third parties if this is necessary for one or more of the purposes listed in paragraph 4. Your personal data may be shared with the following parties and/or for the following reasons:

  • Company acquisition or business or asset sale: in the event that a third party acquires all or part of our business and/or assets, we may disclose your personal data to that third party in connection with the acquisition. Furthermore, we reserve the right to disclose your personal data to third parties as part of any business or asset sale carried out because Polaroid has gone into insolvency or any similar situation, but only where lawful and compliant with the applicable data protection legislation, as amended from time to time.
  • Comply with applicable law: we may disclose your personal data where necessary to comply with applicable law or an order of a governmental or law enforcement body. We may also disclose your personal data in response to a request for personal data by a competent authority if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or is otherwise required by, any applicable law, regulation, or legal process.
  • Subsidiaries and affiliated entities: we may share your personal data with our subsidiaries and affiliated entities within the Polaroid group that provide services or conduct data processing in relation to the Application on our behalf.
  • Other relevant parties: we may disclose your personal data where necessary with our processors, vendors, consultants, marketing partners, and other service providers who need access to such personal data to carry out work on our behalf for the performance of any contract we enter into with them.
  • Analytics: this Application uses Google Analytics for Firebase and Google Firebase Crash Reporting, services (i) provided by Google and (ii) providing insight into Application usage and user engagement. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Application and compiling reports on Application activity for us. Some Firebase services process personal data, that will be provided to us by Google in an aggregated manner. For this reason, a data processing agreement is concluded with Google. However, the aggregated data received from Google does not represent personal data for us as we are not reasonably able to identify a specific user on the basis of this information, nor do we make any efforts to personalize it subsequently. We process these aggregated data to analyze and optimize usage behavior in general, for example by evaluating crash reports.

We may, in some cases, merge your personal data with the data of third parties. We do this, for example, to see your previous purchases.

6.International Transfers

We may transfer personal data that we collect from you to third party processors located in countries that are outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) and to other Polaroid group companies in connection with the above purposes.For example, some Polaroid group companies or processors are domiciled in the United States, which leads to the disclosing of your personal data outside the EEA.

In such situations, we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place that offer an adequate level of protection of your rights and freedoms as a data subject in accordance with the GDPR. We do this, for example, by concluding standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data approved by the European Commission, or by transferring your personal data only to third parties that are considered to guarantee an adequate level of protection according to the European Commission.

7. Data retention

We will retain your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purpose(s) for which it is collected or processed and/or in accordance with legal obligations. After a retention period, we will delete or anonymize your personal data, unless we retain (part of) of your personal data for another purpose. We will only do so if we have a legal basis to retain your personal data. We will ensure that personal data are only accessible for that other purpose.

With regards to the use of our digital services, we will retain your data for a period of two (2) years after using our services. The reason is that you can easily continue to make use of our services within that two-year period. If you are inactive for a longer period of time, we will notify you and remove your data, unless you indicate otherwise.

However, a longer retention period of your personal data may occur if this is necessary to comply with a legal obligation. If a dispute or (legal) proceedings are expected, we may also retain your personal data for a longer period of time.

We will in any case comply with legal data retention obligations. If you would like to receive more information about the retention periods that we apply, please contact us on [email protected]@polaroid.com.
