Tilgangur vinnslu okkar á persónuupplýsingum

Við vinnum eingöngu persónuupplýsingar þínar að því marki sem lög heimila. Helstu tilvik eru eftirfarandi:
• Til að svara fyrirspurnum þínum og/eða bregðast við óskum þínum, t.d. til að senda þér fréttabréf eða
tilkynningu um viðburð.
• Til að efna samning okkar við þig um veitingu ákveðinnar þjónustu eða vöru,
• Til að gæta lögmætra hagsmuna Vatt ehf.
• Til að gera þér kleift að deila efni á samfélagsmiðlum af vefsvæði okkar, til að afgreiða verðlaun, styrki eða
framlög eftir því sem við á og/eða til að gera þér kleift að taka þátt í leikjum, keppnum, kynningarherferðum,
könnunum eða öðrum kynningum á okkar vegum. Í einhverjum tilvikum kunna að vera viðbótarupplýsingar
sem þú þarft að kynna þér sérstaklega og hvetjum við þig til að gera það.

Notkun persónuupplýsinga í markaðstengdum tilgangi

Að því gefnu að þú veitir okkur samþykki þitt getum við notað persónuupplýsingar þínar til að kynna fyrir þér
vörur og þjónustur frá okkur, eignartengdum félögum eða samstarfsaðilum. Við gætum einnig sent þér annað
markaðstengt efni sem við teljum að þú gætir haft áhuga á.
Þessi samskipti gætu átt sér stað í gegnum tölvupóst, síma, bréfleiðis eða með SMS. Þú getur alltaf
afturkallað samþykki þitt hvenær sem þér hentar til að koma í veg fyrir að við sendum þér efni í
markaðstengdum tilgangi í framtíðinni. Í slíkri beiðni þarf að koma skýrt fram að þú viljir ekki fá sent frá okkur
efni, framvegis. Vatt ehf. geymir og varðveitir beiðnir þar að lútandi.

Miðlun til þriðju aðila

Í því skyni að uppfylla þann tilgang sem lýst er hér að ofan kann að vera nauðsynlegt að miðla persónugreinanlegum upplýsingum um þig til þriðju aðila. Slíkir aðilar geta verið ábyrgðaraðilar eða vinnsluaðilar eftir atvikum. Helstu dæmi um slíka aðila eru eftirfarandi: Þjónustuaðilar okkar, t.d. hýsingaraðilar UT-búnaðar og fjarskiptafyrirtæki; Ráðgjafar okkar, t.d. lögmenn, endurskoðendur og vátryggjendur; Innheimtufyrirtæki. Með samþykki þínu getum við notað auglýsingafyrirtæki sem telst til þriðja aðila til að setja inn auglýsingar á vefsvæðið okkar. Við miðlum gögnum einungis að því marki sem nauðsynlegt er og heimilum þriðju aðilum ekki önnur not þeirra.

Öryggi persónuupplýsinga

Vatt ehf. viðhefur viðeigandi öryggisráðstafanir í því skyni að hindra að persónuupplýsingar þínar glatist,
breytist, verði birtar eða aðgangur veittur að þeim í leyfisleysi. Aðgangur að upplýsingunum er auk þess
takmarkaður við þá aðila sem nauðsyn ber til og sem eru bundnir trúnaðarskuldbindingu. Ef upp kemur
öryggisbrestur sem hefur áhrif á persónuupplýsingar munum við tilkynna slíkt til Persónuverndar og eftir
atvikum til þín eftir því sem lög mæla fyrir um. Teljir þú að samskipti þín við okkur séu ekki örugg, biðjum við þig um að láta okkur umsvifalaust vita um
vandamálið með því að senda póst á netfangið: personuvernd@vatt.is.

Hve lengi eru persónuupplýsingar geymdar?

Persónuupplýsingar geymum við aðeins svo lengi sem nauðsyn ber til í þeim tilgangi sem þeirra var aflað.
Geymslutími slíkra persónuupplýsinga fer eftir eðli upplýsinganna og þeim lagareglum sem gilda um
viðkomandi vinnslu persónuupplýsinga, t.d. skatta- eða bókhaldslöggjafar. Í einstaka tilvikum kann einnig að
vera nauðsynlegt að geyma gögn vegna lögmætra hagsmuna Vatt.ehf, t.d. vegna deilumála.

Réttur þinn

Í vissum tilvikum átt þú réttindi samkvæmt persónuverndarlöggjöf í tengslum við vinnslu okkar á
persónuupplýsingum. Ef þú vilt neyta þessara réttinda biðjum við þig að hafa samband við okkur og við
munum leitast við að svara beiðni þinni eins fljótt og auðið er (í flestum tilvikum innan eins mánaðar frá
móttöku) nema um sé að ræða margar eða umfangsmiklar beiðnir. Við kunnum að óska eftir
viðbótarupplýsingum frá þér í tengslum við beiðni þína, t.d. vegna auðkenningar.
Vatt ehf. tekur almennt ekki gjald fyrir afhendingu gagna eða afgreiðslu annarra beiðna. Við áskiljum okkur þó
rétt á að innheimta gjald eða synja um afhendingu þegar um er að ræða beiðnir sem eru bersýnilega
tilhæfulausar, óhóflegar eða margendurteknar.

Réttur til aðgangs: Þú átt rétt á að óska eftir aðgangi að persónuupplýsingum um þig og að fá afhent afrit
upplýsinganna. Með þeim hætti getur þú fullvissað þig um að upplýsingarnar séu réttar og að vinnsla okkar á
þeim sé í samræmi við lög. 

Réttur til að flytja eigin gögn: Í vissum tilvikum kannt þú að eiga rétt á að fá
afhentar persónuupplýsingar um þig, sem þú hefur látið okkur í té, á algengu, tölvulesanlegu sniði. Þú átt líka
rétt á að senda þessar upplýsingar til annars ábyrgðaraðila.

Réttur til leiðréttingar: Ef einhverjar upplýsingar um þig eru rangar eða ónákvæmar átt þú almennt rétt á að
láta okkur leiðrétta þær. 

Réttur til eyðingar: Í vissum tilvikum getur þú átt rétt á að við eyðum
persónuupplýsingum sem við geymum um þig. Þetta á einkum við í þeim tilvikum þar sem upplýsingarnar eru
ekki lengur nauðsynlegar, ef þú hefur andmælt vinnslu upplýsinganna (sbr. hér að neðan), ef vinnslan reynist
ólögmæt, eða ef vinnslan byggði á samþykki sem þú hefur síðar afturkallað. Vatt ehf. áskilur sér þó rétt til að
meta í hvert eitt sinn hvort skylt sé að eyða gögnum. 

Réttur til að andmæla vinnslu: Ef vinnsla okkar byggir á
lögmætum hagsmunum Vatt ehf. eða annarra, og þú telur að vegna aðstæðna þinna brjóti vinnslan gegn
grundvallarréttindum þínum, getur þú andmælt vinnslunni. Ef þú andmælir, hættum við vinnslunni nema við
getum bent á ríkari lögmæta hagsmuni af að halda henni áfram. 

Réttur til takmörkunar á vinnslu: Í eftirtöldum tilvikum átt þú rétt á að við stöðvum vinnslu persónuupplýsinga:
• ef þú vefengir að persónuupplýsingarnar séu réttar (þangað til við getum staðfest að þær séu réttar),
• vinnslan er ólögmæt, en þú vilt ekki að persónuupplýsingunum sé eytt,
• við þurfum ekki lengur á persónuupplýsingunum að halda fyrir vinnsluna en þú þarfnast þeirra til þess að
stofna, hafa uppi eða verja réttarkröfur,
• þú hefur andmælt vinnslunni, sbr. að ofan. Í því tilviki stöðvum við vinnslu meðan við höfum ekki bent á ríkari
lögmæta hagsmuni okkar af að halda henni áfram.

Réttur til að afturkalla samþykki: Í þeim tilvikum þar sem við byggjum vinnslu á samþykki þínu er þér ávallt
heimilt að afturkalla slíkt samþykki. Afturköllun þýðir þó ekki að vinnsla sem fór fram áður en samþykki var
afturkallað sé ólögmæt.

vefkökum. Við áskiljum okkur rétt til að breyta stefnunni um vefkökur hvenær sem er með því að gera nýja

Hvað eru vefkökur?

Vefkökur eru litlar textaskrár sem vefsvæði senda í tölvuna þína eða snjalltæki þegar þú heimsækir vefsvæði

aðilum.
Notendur vefsvæðanna hafa alltaf möguleika á að loka fyrir notkun á vefkökum eða að veita leyfi í hvert skipti
sem vefsvæði okkar er notað. Slíkar stillingar gætu haft áhrif á virkni vefsvæðisins og þannig takmarkað
notkun þess að hluta eða öllu leiti.

Hvernig notum við vefkökur?

notenda um notkun á kökum á vefsvæði okkar.

Frammistöðu vefkökur:

notkun og virkni þeirra. Með þeim getum við safnað upplýsingum um frammistöðu vefsvæða og auðveldar
okkur þannig að aðlaga það að þörfum notenda, s.s. með því að senda þér sértæk tilboð.
Hvaða vefkökur notum við frá þriðja aðila? Við notum vefkökur sem tilheyra þriðja aðila á vefsvæðum okkar, s.s.frá Google, Facebook, Instagram og
Youtube. Þessir aðilar geta komið fyrir vefkökum í vöfrum notenda og með þeim hætti nálgast upplýsingar um
aðgengi og notkun á vefsvæðunum. Slíkar þjónustur eru einkum notaðar til að afla upplýsinga um notkun á

any necessary steps before entering into such agreement;
(b)fulfil your requests (for example, to enable you to book test drives or request vehicle

We must have a legal basis to process your personal information. In most cases the legal basis will be one

(a)to fulfil our contractual obligations to you, for example to provide the services you request,
to fulfil our contract with you, to ensure payments to us can be made, and to exercise our legal
rights.

3. AUTOMATED DECISIONS ABOUT YOU

The way we analyse personal information for the purposes of ensuring we are able to make appropriate
decisions about whether to offer credit takes place on an automated basis.
We make such automated decisions about you as they are necessary for us to enter into a contract with
you. We may decide not to offer particular financing products to you based on your credit history and other
financial information we have collected about you.
Subject to local legal requirements and limitations, you can contact us to request further information about
automated decision-making, object to our use of automated decision-making, or request an automated
decision to be reviewed by a human being, using the contact details here.
4. INFORMATION COLLECTED WHEN YOUR VEHICLE IS
SERVICED OR REPAIRED
When the vehicle you drive was manufactured it was assigned a unique number (the Vehicle Identification
Number, or “VIN”). From the VIN we can tell certain information about your vehicle, including its model,
age, and technical specifications such as the software it runs on.
When you bring your vehicle in for a service with one of our dealers or repairers, their engineers working
on it will need to collect the VIN together with the diagnostic information and operation/environment data
about the current state of your vehicle and when the malfunction took place.
This information will be transferred to SMC’s systems, operated by SMC or its service providers and
located in Japan or elsewhere, so that SMC can provide the engineers that are servicing your vehicle
vehicle-specific repair, maintenance and diagnostic information (including diagrams to help them fix
problems, and software updates which may be required for your vehicle’s on-board system). SMC will also
provide them information about any past work carried out on your vehicle to assist them to diagnose,
repair and/or service it and to enable them to maintain their records.
The information about the work done to your vehicle when it is serviced or repaired is always linked to the
VIN of your vehicle, to make sure that every time you bring the vehicle in for a service, engineers of our
dealers and repairers can provide you the best service possible. After the services are complete, this
information will be transferred to the SMC’s systems, so that SMC (or any third parties it authorises to use
the system in this way) can access information about past services and other maintenance work available
to any dealer, repairer or their engineer anywhere in the world when they service your vehicle. SMC takes
steps to ensure that only those dealers, repairers and engineers that are servicing your vehicle have
access to that information, to protect your privacy.
SMC also uses the information held on the system to help diagnose common problems with SMC vehicles,
to assist with repairs, to manage and administer warranties, similar products and services. It is also used
for product safety purposes including, but not limited to, decision and implementation for field actions such
as recall whether mandatory or not, and research and development purposes. If required, SMC will use
that information to comply with its legal obligations.
SMC may also pass this information to members of its group companies/partner companies and service
providers as described below for the purposes set out above.
