Effective Date: April 21st, 2023

The privacy policy is aimed at the visitors of our website www.letterlife.se (“the Website”). Letterlife is the data controller for the processing of all personal data that you submit when using the website. For a more detailed description of our service, please refer to our Terms of Service.

We promise that Letterlife will never sell, transfer or otherwise make your personal data available to a third party without your express consent or in any manner which is not expressly stated in this privacy policy. If you feel that anything is unclear or if you have any objections to the way in which we process your personal data, please feel free to contact our data protection officer via email at gustav@letterlife.se

  2. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU?

    When you visit our website, certain pieces of information will be collected automatically, such as information about your use of the service, location data, language settings and information about your web-browser and operating system. We may also use cookies and similar technologies in order to collect such data. More information about the use of cookies can be found in section nine below.

  3. THE PURPOSE AND LEGAL BASIS FOR DATA PROCESSING

    Use and provision of the service

    Letterlife processes the personal data that we collect about you in order to provide you with the service, to administer your account and in order to communicate with you regarding your use of the service. Such processing concerns basic personal data and is necessary in order for Letterlife to fulfill its agreement regarding the service with you (see Terms of Service). The legal basis is the performance of the contract. Health data is processed if you choose to share it with us during your usage of the app.

    Development of the service

    Letterlife analyzes your use of the service in order to improve the service for users and to develop new products and services. Such processing is only undertaken if a balancing test indicates that Letterlife’s interest in developing and improving the service and new products outweighs the data subject’s interest in protecting their data.

    Research

    In order for Letterlife to be able to contribute to research, personal data may also be processed for research purposes in order to help further understand how different habits can affect disease activity and symptoms, etc. Personal details will only be processed for research purposes following the collection of your express consent for this.

    Marketing

    Personal details may be processed for marketing purposes in order to market the service and other services or products similar to this one, either within or outside of the service itself, including functions and content in the service and other products and services that are provided via the service. Such processing is only undertaken if a balancing test shows that Letterlife’s interest in marketing outweighs the data subject’s right to have their privacy protected. Note that you are entitled to object to Letterlife’s processing of your personal details for marketing purposes at any time (see more information in the section 7. Your Rights).

    Aggregated information

    Letterlife may anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be connected back to you. Anonymisation occurs automatically without any kind of human input. Your anonymised information is grouped together with anonymised information from other users – this is called aggregated information. The aggregated information can then be used to improve the service by drawing various different conclusions on a group level. Information is only anonymised if a balancing test shows that Letterlife’s interest in anonymising and using the anonymised information outweighs the data subject’s right to have their privacy protected.

  4. FOR HOW LONG DO WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

    Letterlife stores your personal data for as long as it is needed to provide you with the service. If you request that, Letterlife will permanently delete all the personal data that was collected through your use of the service. An anonymised/aggregated version of your data can not be deleted because it can no longer be linked back to you or in any way separated for other users’ data (see the section on Aggregated information above).

    Personal data that is used for research purposes is stored for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for data processing, which is always indicated in a separate privacy notice you receive before potentially joining research studies (see the section on Research above).

  5. DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

    In order for us to operate Letterlife in the best possible way, we need to share your personal data with external service providers so that they can perform certain tasks on our behalf. These service providers process user data and help us to deliver the service, and they do this in accordance with the present privacy policy, Examples of service providers that we work with include Digital Ocean LLC (used for hosting our production servers), Hotjar Ltd (for user experience analysis), Customer IO (in order to be able to send notifications in different channels) and Beam (analytics). If a third party processes personal data on our behalf (e.g. Digital Ocean LLC), they are bound by data processing agreements. Note that Letterlife is responsible at all times for your personal data and other information — and that no third-party service can acquire any additional rights other than the ones provided for by the present privacy policy.

    Letterlife also reserves the right to transfer the user databases, together with any personal data contained in them, to any third party acquiring Letterlife assets after notice and the opportunity for a user of our service to request that personal data not be transferred. Should Letterlife or our assets ever be sold, acquired, merged, liquidated, reorganized, or otherwise transferred, we will place a prominent notice on the homepage of the Letterlife website (https://letterlife.se).

  6. DATA STORAGE AND TRANSFERS

    Letterlife endeavours to store and process all user data within the EU. The storage and processing are done following high security standards, such as secure transfer protocols and end-to-end encryption.

    If you have given us consent to process your personal data, you can withdraw your consent at any time (without this affecting the legality of any data processing undertaken before your consent was withdrawn). In such a case, Letterlife will no longer be entitled to continue with the data processing in question (unless there is another legal basis for processing).
