We use Google Analytics for statistical purposes. Please see further information on our use of Google Analytics below under "Cookies".  

When we use third party sub-contractors or service providers in order to provide our services, we will take appropriate legal precautions and corresponding technical and organizational measures in order to ensure that your personal data is protected in accordance with applicable data protection law. Our service providers may be based in locations all over the world. This means that your personal data may be transferred outside of the EU/EEA.

How do we protect your personal data?  

Both our data processors and we have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a sufficient level of security when processing your personal data and to prevent loss or unlawful processing (ref. GDPR art. 32). Such measures are, for example, internal routines, data processing agreements and IT-security procedures to verify access rights. We will also carry out data protection impact assessments when it is likely that processing your data may result in a high risk with respect to your rights and freedoms in relation to your personal data.  

Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are saved on your hard drive and associated to your browser, and that provide us with information. They serve to make our web-services more user-friendly and efficient. We use cookies and similar technology to store your website preferences, combat fraud and illegal activity, analyze our services, improve our website, store your preferences, show you advertisements and other marketing ads, and to fulfil other legitimate purposes. For these purposes, we use necessary, functional and analytic cookies. Some of those cookies are persistent, which means that they will be stored on your electronic device when you leave our website for a restricted period of time. For session cookies, those are deleted as soon as you leave our websites.

We use necessary cookies in order to uphold our legitimate interest in providing you with a functional webpage (ref. GDPR art. 6(1) letter f). For all other cookies we ask for your explicit consent (ref. GDPR art. 6(1) letter a).  You may, at any time, change or withdraw your consents to the use of cookies that are not necessary by changing your browser settings.  

In this link you will find a list of active cookies used on our website, and their purpose.  

We also use Google Analytics for statistical purposes (ref. GDPR art. 6(1) letter f). Google Analytics sets cookies to evaluate your use of the website and create reports on website activity for us. These reports include information on number of visitors, which sites they visit, how long a visit lasts, and so on. This information can be provided to third parties when Google Analytics is required to do so, or to the extent that third parties process data. Google Analytics can process personal data on our behalf only on documented instructions from Amina Charging, and in accordance with a data processing agreement between Amina Charging and Google.

You have several rights under the applicable data protection regulations. We have provided a list of the rights you can exercise in your relationship with us as a data controller below.

Please note that personal data that is essential to the customer relationship with us cannot be deleted, unless you also explicitly request termination of the customer relationship with us.  
  • Restriction: You have a general right to ask us to stop (“freeze”) the processing of your personal data, e.g. where you are of the opinion that we process personal data about you illegally and you do not wish us to erase these data pursuant to our routines for such erasure until the matter has been clarified.  
  • Data portability: You have a general right to request transfer of your personal data in a common, machine-readable format.

Your personal data will not be stored for longer than needed for the purposes mentioned in this Privacy Policy. This means that when our customer relationship with you is terminated, we will erase your personal data as soon as our purpose with processing such data is no longer relevant, unless we are compelled by law or have other legal basis to store this data any longer.
