How do we ensure the security and risk avoidance?

We at Mautilus are aware of the importance of the data security. Our company uses SVN Tortoise as a cloud system. This system allows Mautilus to give the access and rights to update only to the relevant persons and reduces the risk of data abuse to minimum. Some personal information can be saved in a mailbox in case the information was provided via e-mail.

Our employees are aware of the basic security rules such as using antivirus and recent version of operating system, strong passwords to access their profiles/laptops/emails etc.

We choose only the suppliers and partners who declare meeting the GDPR requirements and we who do all our data processing in EU-based cloud centers to be sure that all data is handled within the European Union.

In terms of software security, we rely on the strong partners with established infrastructure and procedures to ensure the data security at any time.

Mautilus has, based on an analysis, taken measures to establish various procedures of data collection and processing. Our company is also ready to report the appropriate authorities in case we suspect that the safety regulations should be broken.

What information do we obtain from our applications and products?

In connection with the products and applications we develop (HbbTV/OTT/mobile etc.) and their operation Mautilus does not systematically process any personal or specific personal data about the end users of the applications that could lead to their identification so in this sense Mautilus is neither the controller nor processor of the personal data. The applications and their operation require from the end users some information such as login, email address, IP address etc. (or they collect them automatically in anonymous and encrypted way), but this data is ensured by the application provider.

HENMAN product

For statistical purposes we do not save any user or device identification. We rely on aggregated data only. Device’s IP address and User-agent header are saved temporarily server’s into log file – it is used for developing/debugging purpose and the information is automatically deleted after some time.

When the HENMAN is used for saving data from questionnaires we keep the device’s IP address and User-agent header saved permanently in the database.

If enabled, the device’s IP address is used for geo-location. This feature is currently unused.
