All collection, processing and use (hereafter “usage”) of data by Smartella is exclusively for the purposes of providing the Smartella services (hereafter “services”). The services have been designed with the goal of collecting as little personal data as possible to function. By “personal data”, we mean all particulars related to an identified or identifiable natural person (the “data subject”).
The following statements describe which types of data we collect when you use our services, what happens with this data, and how you can object to this data processing, where applicable.

“Our Website(s)” and “Smartella Websites” refers to any website owned and/or operated by Smartella (as listed above).
User is the individual using software Smartella, which must coincide with or be authorized by the Data Subject, to whom the Personal Data refer.
Data we Collect
When you visit our website, our server temporarily saves details of your access in its logs. These logs contain the following data, and are kept until their automatic deletion:
- The IP address of the computer making the request
- The date and time of your request
- The requested URI
- The amount of data transferred to you in response
- Whether the request was successfully processed or not
- Identifying data about the browser and operating system you use
- The referring website from which you made the request
- The name of your Internet Service Provider
The purpose of recording this data is to make it possible to serve the website to you (by establishing a TCP/IP connection), to secure our servers, the technical administration of our infrastructure as well as the optimisation of our services. Only in the case of unauthorised access or attacks on our infrastructure will your IP address be analysed.
No further information is required from you in order to access our website other than that listed above.
Among the types of Personal Data that Smartella collects from User, by itself or through third parties, there are:
- First Name & Last Name
- Phone number
- Address, State, Province/Region, ZIP/Postal code, City, Country
- Cookie and Usage Data, IP address.
The Personal Data may be freely provided by the User, or collected automatically when using Smartella.
Failure to provide certain Personal Data may make it impossible for Smartella to provide its services.
Users are responsible for any Personal Data of third parties obtained, published or shared through Smartella and confirm that they have the third party’s consent to provide the Data to the Owner.
The use of the Data processed by the Service
All Data processed via the analysis conducted by Smartella are used by Smartella only for the purpose of providing the service to the Users. Such data will not be transferred or sold by Smartella to any third party, nor will it be used by the Owner for any purpose connected to Smartella own business. The Owner reserves the right to aggregate the Data imported on the application by the different Smartella Users, for the purpose of creating anonymised aggregated metrics.
Keeping your data secure
In order to secure your data, we have put in place technical and organisational measures which meet the requirements of the GDPR, and require any third-party service providers we use to do the same.
When we use third parties to provide the services, for example, infrastructure service providers, these third parties are only engaged after a comprehensive review.
Your data is only ever saved on secure servers, which may only be accessed by authorised personnel.
Third-Party Service Providers in non-EEA Countries
In order to provide our services, we use third-party services located outside the European Economic Area. Where such transfer occurs, Smartella ensures that such transfer occurs under the necessary legal provisions as required by the applicable legislation in order to provide for an adequate level of protection of Your Personal Data (e.g. adequacy decision of the EU commission (e.g. EU-US Privacy Shield), binding corporate rules, or EU standard contractual clauses)
In addition to the previously listed data, cookies will be saved on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small pieces of textual data which are saved on your hard disk by your web browser, through which Smartella, who sets the cookie’s contents, can collect certain information about you. Cookies cannot execute any code, nor transfer any viruses to your computer. We use them in order to anonymously or pseudonymously analyse the use of the website, and present relevant offers to you.
This website uses the following types of cookies, whose scope and functionality is detailed in the following paragraphs.
– Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They are used particularly as session cookies. These save a so-called “session ID” which is used to link subsequent requests made by your browser to each other. Through this, your computer can be recognised when you return to our website. These session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.
– Persistent cookies are only deleted after a predetermined duration, which can be different for each cookie. You can delete these persistent cookies anytime, though the “Settings” configuration of your browser. We advise you, that if you do so, that not all functionality of this website will be available in some cases.
The placement of cookies on your computer can be prevented through the relevant settings of your internet browser. Previously set cookies can also be deleted through the settings of your browser. We advise you that preventing the placement of cookies on your computer can mean that not all functions of our website are available without limitations.

The data given by the data subject to register will solely be used for registration, and not passed to any third parties unless Smartella has a lawful ground to do so. In the course of registration on our website, your IP address, date and time of access will be recorded, in order to prevent any potential misuse. During, or after the registration, the data subject is free to alter their personal data. It is also possible for the data subject to completely cancel their registration so that all personal data is deleted.

Our responsibilities as a Data Processor
As a technical services provider who stores the personal information of EU citizens on behalf of Data Controllers, we have certain responsibilities under GDPR which we comply with, including:
Managing Data Processing – Smartella has clear documentation on where our data comes from, how it is stored, and where it goes after we get it. Smartella will only process personal data on instructions from the controller, and inform the controller if it believes said instruction infringes on the GDPR (28.3)
Accountability and Governance – Smartella takes extraordinary steps to secure your data, ensure stability and uptime, manage data backup and disaster recovery, and regularly test security (32.1)
Authorized Use of Sub-Processors – Smartella uses subprocessors as a routine part of offering our service. It is our responsibility to ensure our subcontractors comply with GDPR, and we will comply with those rules. As a Data Controller, your agreement to our use of sub-processors is part of our legal Terms of Service and required to be an Smartella user. We maintain a list of sub-processors which can be provided upon request.
