2. Definitions

As per the General Data Protection Regulation, personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Processing of personal data means any operation or set of operations that are performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Forest Therapy Hub – as per the minimisation and storage limitation principles – keeps personal data in a form that permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed. Therefore, it processes during mandatory legal periods (when applicable) or during the time strictly necessary. The data will be deleted after that period unless there is a pending dispute, in which case Forest Therapy Hub will keep the data until the decision is final.

The processing of personal data for a specific purpose must meet one of the legal grounds listed in the GDPR (as provided for in articles 6, 9 and 10 of the GDPR). Forest Therapy Hub may process your personal data on the following grounds:

  • if the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract (article 6(1)(b));
  • if the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which Forest Therapy Hub is subject (article 6(1)(c));
  • if the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Forest Therapy Hub or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data (article 6(1)(f)).
