(6) The provisions of this Policy apply with priority against the contrary provisions in other terms issued by Pluria.
(7) User’s benefitting from the functionalities of Pluria User App is dependent on the existence of the contractual arrangement between Pluria and Client (the legal entity ensuring the provision of our specific services to your direct benefit, acting as your employer/contractor).
(9) User hereby understands that their employer (Client) does not transfer to Pluria the Client’s own responsibilities and obligations with regard to Client’s relationship with Users (e.g. responsibilities under employment relationship relating to tracking start times and end times of the work schedule, obligations relating to tracking User’s working time based on the work relationship with the Client).
(10) User may engage with Pluria User App and its functionalities by observing their obligations in accordance with T&C Pluria App.

*The set-up of your Account for Pluria User App is made by Pluria further to its direct contractual relationship with the Client. Based on such contract, we receive from the Client, via encrypted and safe connection, your office (work) e-mail address (and, indirectly, your name and surname) and the empowerment to set up your User Account in Pluria Platform/Pluria User App. Once the Account is set-up, further to downloading Pluria User App on your Device, we send you an email where we ask you, for validation purposes, to enter the code we send on your (work) e-mail address for which the Account was set up (if you do not enter the verification code, you cannot use Pluria User App/your Account); verification codes are similarly sent to you every time you login into your Account. We may use, in accordance with GDPR, a third-party processor for sending you the e-mails with the code for verification. Once profile is completed by User in User Account, the User data in „My Account” remain unchanged until further amendment by User (name and mobile telephone number) and/or the Client (for clarification, only the Client may ask Pluria to change/amend User’s email address, as data whose accuracy can be controlled only by the Client – as holder of e-mail domain address) / termination of User Account in accordance with T&C Pluria App.
**Pluria User App may integrate/use services/apps/functionalities provided by Freshworks (e.g. Freshdesk, Freshservice, Freshsales, Freshchat, Freshconnect) to carry out smoother/real time communication/chat/interraction with its Users. This involves creation of Freshworks user account that User may later effectively use (if they so decide) to engage with Pluria via Freshworks functionalities (e.g. text chatbot).
Downloading Pluria User App from app store
(1) When you download our Pluria User App from the relevant mobile application store, the following data in particular will be automatically processed by the operator of the respective application store (Apple App Store or Google Play):
(3) Given that Pluria User App is available for free download, no payment information of the User shall be processed.
Pluria User Account
Once data is filled in by User in User Account, such User data in „My Account” remain unchanged until further amendment by User (name and mobile telephone number) and/or the Client (for clarification, only the Client may ask Pluria to change/amend User’s email address, as data whose accuracy can be controlled only by the Client – as holder of e-mail domain address) / termination of User Account in accordance with T&C Pluria App.
Your reviews/recommendations you send via Pluria User App
(1) Your reviews and ratings of Spaces are important for the Partners; if we want to send them your rating/review that also identifies you, we will do it only after you give us your consent in this respect. Otherwise, the ratings/reviews that do not lead to your identification (e.g. aggregately) will be transmitted to them without your prior consent.
(2) It may be necessary for us to forward (extracts of) your requests to our partners (e.g. our Partners for the Spaces) in order to process your request. In these cases, however, the request will be anonymised beforehand, so that the third party cannot make any connection to you. If, in individual cases, the disclosure of your personal information should be required, we will inform you about this in advance and obtain your consent.
Location-based functionalities of Pluria User App
(1) These functionalities require User to activate function of GPS location of User Device and they further work based on GPS (also provided that the Device is connected to a mobile electronic communication network).
(2) Pluria User App has been designed and implemented so as to limit its access to location sensor of Device to the bare minimum and only when clearly relevant for the proper functioning of Pluria User App, i.e. delivering the location-based functionalities of Pluria User App requested by the User (e.g. checking-in into the Space). Most importantly, location function/sensor of Device is accessed by Pluria User App only after User has provided express permission (consent) for the processing of location data on the Device via the “Allow permission” dialogue/prompt for location access, asking permission for your Device to share that information with Pluria User App. Pluria has no intention/purpose of continuously requesting / using / processing the GPS-location information of the Device, or of monitoring the GPS-location information of the Device. Nevertheless, please turn off geo-localisation, from your Device, when it is not necessary for accessing/using Pluria Services as listed herein. In addition, you prevent the risk of secret monitoring (there may be websites designed to read the location details of the users of smart mobile devices).
(3) GPS-based location information from the Device is created and collected by Pluria independently of an electronic communications network or of an electronic communications service provider, i.e. it is not location data governed by article 9 of ePrivacy Directive/corresponding implementation legislation in EU country where User accesses Pluria Services via Pluria User App (information society services are explicitly excluded from the e-Privacy directive, from the strict definition of electronic communications service).
(4) Nevertheless, we are committed to fully compliance with GDPR when processing such data. The processing of GPS-based location information from the Device (one or more calculated locations), in combination with the unique numbers of any Device, constitutes personal data processing, as it may lead to indirect identifiability of the data subject. We have considered all these aspects and assessed implications thereof, from data privacy perspective. As provider of Pluria User App (i.e. a software application capable of processing geolocation data), Pluria is the controller for the processing of such personal data resulting from the installation and use of Pluria User App.
(5) In dully application of privacy by default and privacy by design principles, Pluria User App does not use a default „ON” setting for GPS-location information from the Device. On the contrary, Pluria User App starts processing GPS-location information from the Device only after User specifically consents to such processing.
(6) Pursuant to User’s consent, GPS-location information is collected by Pluria via Google & Apple Maps services.
(7) Pluria is not responsible for the processing of the GPS-based location information from the Device performed by controllers of geolocation infrastructure (e.g. Google & Apple Maps services) or other by other parties handling such data under their own responsibility (e.g. the developer of the operating system of the Device).
Marketing (commercial communication)
(1) Only if you have consented to receive marketing materials from Pluria, by opting-in for receiving such marketing by indicating your consent via Pluria User App, Pluria may send you such marketing materials via email, phone, SMS (depending on your choice).
(2) You can withdraw/revoke your consent at any time, from your My Account settings or by contacting Pluria at our contact details. When you revoke your consent, we will stop sending you marketing materials (certain details will need to be retained in order for us to know that you’ve revoked your consent and we are no longer allowed to send you marketing materials on the channels you have revoked consent for).
(1) Pluria implements all technical and organizational measures necessary so as the collection, processing and retention of your personal data to be accomplished securely, including against unauthorised access to/use of your personal data. Among our measures:
Please be advised that while we make continuous efforts to protect your personally identifiable data, we make no guarantees or assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss, access, or misuse and are not responsible in the event that such loss or misuse occurs.
(2) In the cases where Pluria acts as data processor for your personal data, information on such processing shall be ensured by the entity acting as controller of your personal data.
(1) In addition to the provisions above, please note that when we are dealing with your requests from you, the recipient of your data is you (the data subject).
(2) We may share your data with third party contractors (providers) effectively involved in processing your data for performance of tasks/services related to Pluria User App/Pluria Platform, as indicated in the table under Section 4 above. We use specific and strict rules when selecting our partners/third party contractors, to ensure protection of personal data and compliance with data privacy rules, including GDPR rules, including by concluding data processing agreements in accordance with art. 28 of GDPR.
(3) If we undergo a reorganization or a purchase/sale procedure, we may share your data with third parties involved in such procedures (including auditors, consultants), during audits performed on our activities / business / company. We will ensure such third parties are obliged to keep data secure and implement necessary measures to ensure security of data and that their access is limited only to the data necessary to be processed.
(4) Currently, we seek to keep your personal data within locations in EU countries. If the transfer of Users data to providers/subcontractors/partners in non-EES countries is necessary, or in situations where the place for storing our data or the location of our providers/subcontractors/partners is outside EES boundaries, we will always ensure that a proper legal contract covering such transfer is in place, in accordance with the standards adopted by the European Commission to this end. Nevertheless, should such a third party not have laws equivalent to the UE data protection standards, we shall ask such third-party recipient to enter into a binding agreement reflecting these standards
(1) Unless otherwise provided in the Policy, User personal data is kept only for the completion of the purpose of their collection/processing.
(2) Given the direct contractual relationship between Pluria and the Client (User’s employer) from which your Account stems, only the Client can pursue deletion of your Account, in accordance with the terms of the contract between Client and Pluria. Nevertheless, User can initiate deletion of their personal data in accordance with section 8 below. Pluria shall involve also the Client in the procedure for deletion, without affecting User’s rights. Your data in the Account is anonymised in case the Client’s account is deactivated as per the contract between Client and Pluria. User is hereby informed that the deletion of the Account (in any case) shall automatically trigger the final and irreversible deletion of all information and data related thereto and Pluria shall not be held liable for non-retention of such information and data. The Account cannot be restored after its deletion date.
(3) Accounts that are not used for a 12-month period are de-activated and the corresponding personal data is deleted / anonymized (so that the data subject can no longer be identified), unless we are obliged by law or our legitimate interests to do otherwise. We shall notify the User in advance of the deactivation of their Account.
(4) As regards the data used with the prior consent of the data subject, we will process this data for that purpose only until the User withdraws their consent, unless we are obliged to keep such data for a longer period, according to law, for investigations made by relevant authorities or in order to defend our rights.
(5) Pluria may retain certain data (check-in/ckeck-out, bookings, Puria User ID) in anonymised / aggregate form, for business purposes, with no purpose of identifying individuals (data subjects).
(1) In order to make sure that each User is in control of their personal data, we ensure that each data subject may operate their Account and amend / delete / edit personal data in accordance with the Policy.
(2) Also, in your capacity as data subject, according to GDPR, Users enjoy the rights detailed below (Users may be asked to prove their identity and quality as Account holder, in order for their requests be analysed). We try to answer requests without delay and no later than 30 days after the request being made (or in another reasonable term, as per GDPR).
(3) Your rights:
Right to access their personal data. The User is entitled to access their data we process about them; we will not charge for initial requests. If the User requests copies of the data already provided, we may charge a reasonable fee, to reflect the administrative costs associated with the provision of such data.

The request for access right must be sent by the User at:
Right to rectification. The User who identifies that the personal data we process about them is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate, may:
Right to object to direct marketing. The User may object at any time or un-scribe from our direct marketing materials. They may do this only by choosing accordingly in the app, in My Account menu.
Withdrawal/revocation of consent (un-scribing or written request) does not affect the legality of the processing based on consent before the withdrawal/revocation.
Right to object to processing based on our legitimate interest. The User may oppose at any time to any processing which is stated to be based on our legitimate interest. Under the sub-section “personal data processing legal basis”, you can easily see when we process personal data based on our legitimate interest.

Right to erasure (right to be forgotten).
The User is entitled to request the deletion of their personal data in any of the following situations: (a) personal data is no longer necessary for accomplishing the purposes for which it has been processed, (b) User withdraws consent where processing has been based on consent, and we do not have other legal ground for continuing the processing, (c) the User objects to processing based on our legitimate interest and we cannot show a reason why our legitimate interest prevails over their interests, rights and freedoms, (d) personal data is processed contrary to the law; (e) personal data must be deleted in order to comply with legal requirements.
Right to erasure is not an absolute right. We may deny the request if (i) we are obliged by law to keep the data; or (ii) the data is necessary for attesting, exercising or protecting our rights in a court of law. In certain cases, data deletion is in fact controlled by the Client, as direct contractual party of Pluria, ensuring the User benefits the Pluria Services/access to Pluria Platform/Pluria User App as presented in this Policy and in the T&C Pluria User App.
