Security and privacy policy

In general about privacy and security

Trust is a key factor in all of Meniga's operations, which is why Meniga places great emphasis on ensuring, in a variety of ways, confidentiality, reliability and the safe and responsible handling of information. Furthermore, Meniga strives to educate users about security issues and how their information is handled so that no one has to doubt that Meniga goes further than most to ensure security and ensure that people's information is handled in a safe, natural, legal, responsible and ethical way. . Meniga's security and privacy policy and security issues are under constant review to ensure that the strictest requirements are always met, and Meniga will, as appropriate, seek to have independent certification bodies regularly review the security issues.

New Privacy Policy (GDPR)

Meniga welcomes the new legislation on personal data protection and processing (GDPR) which came into force on 25 May 2018 in the European Economic Area. Security and privacy have always been a cornerstone of our operations, and it is therefore both important and positive that the legislature has taken this step to sharpen laws and regulations concerning the handling of personal data by companies. Further information on this can be found in the lower part of this summary "Compliance with Regulations and Cooperation with Regulators".

The following factors describe how Meniga secures your rights following the GDPR.

Data we collect and store

Meniga analyzes bank transactions from the bank accounts and credit cards you choose to share with Meniga. Entries from these accounts are usually retrieved and stored once a day or whenever you request them to be retrieved. In addition, the status of invoices and cards is stored.

You are asked to choose an e-mail address when you register for the service, in addition to which the service may ask for information regarding age, gender, place of residence, size of car or number of vehicles. You are free to choose whether you choose to provide the requested demographic information.

If you choose to take advantage of a refund offer, you will be asked for account information (account number and ID number) so that you can be reimbursed for the benefits of trading in active offers.

To improve the service, Meniga also collects technical information on how you use Meniga, e.g. with which browser or app you access the service, where and what functionality you use most. In this way, we find out which aspects of our service work best and how to improve accessibility and functionality for the benefit of all users.

If you contact Meniga for a question or a solution to a technical problem, Meniga also has a communication history.

Reason for data collection

We collect, store and analyze data through our services for the following purposes:

To provide the service

In order for Meniga to provide you with the services you have signed up for, Meniga analyzes your consumption patterns based on entries that accompany the bank accounts and cards you have linked to the system. Meniga categorizes the main income and expense items and links transactions to the company that was traded with (if applicable). The purpose of this elaboration is to provide you with a simple overview of household finances as well as to provide new insights in the form of accessible user interfaces, reports and notifications.

In addition, Meniga uses transaction information to compile non-personally identifiable market analyzes sold to companies and / or published in the media, to inform the public about the situation on the Icelandic market.

Your personal information is never made available to these companies, and if analytics does not meet the minimum number of users requirements, those reports will not be made available to companies.Viðhald og þróun á okkar þjónustu

Meniga greinir einnig notkun þína á appi eða vefsvæði Meniga til að geta bætt og þróað þjónustuna enn frekar.

Í þessari greiningu felst meðal annars að telja hvaða þætti þjónustunnar þú notar helst, hversu oft þú skráir þig inn, hvaðan og með hvaða vafra og stýrikerfi.

Development of new products

Meniga collects information from users, e.g. through tips via social media and e-mail, through user behavior on the Meniga.is app and web system or user tests, in order to develop new products and solutions that could be useful to users. User feedback is very important to us in all development work.

To provide customized services, e.g. refund offer and comparison

In addition, Meniga uses transaction information, demographic information or statistical analysis to show you how your consumption patterns compare to aggregate (and non-personally identifiable) information about other users.

Meniga also uses your personal consumption pattern to find suitable offers from companies participating in Meniga's refund offers. However, your personal information (including bank transactions related to the use of offers) is never provided to these companies under any circumstances.

Performance measurements

Meniga collects information about the use of Meniga's products in order to better understand which aspects of the service are most useful to users and to measure users' reactions to new products or updates to existing products. The performance measurements are a key part of "Maintenance and development" of our service and "Development of new products" which can be read about above.

Communication with users

Meniga is a service developed by users and for users. It is very important for Meniga to be able to communicate openly with you and other users. Both so that we can inform you about updates, new products, new refund offers or other important changes to our service and also so that you can easily let us know if any part of the service is down, is not being used as it should be, you experience dissatisfaction with updates or if the service is being useful. We welcome any feedback on our service and try to respond quickly.

On the one hand, we store information about users' email addresses (usernames) so that we can send you an email with notifications of updates, new products, new refund offers or other important changes. Each email will give you the option to unsubscribe from such notifications and then your email address will be deleted from that list. However, the email address will still be available in Meniga's databases for authentication of login to Meniga's app and / or web system.

However, we collect and store data that enables us to communicate directly with you and other users through the Meniga app and / or web system.

Security of your information

The storage of transactions in bank accounts and cards meets the strictest security requirements (comparable to bank security) and is such that information about you cannot be accessed based on simple personal information such as ID number or account number, as Meniga does not store that information (this information are stored encrypted if they have been provided as part of your participation in refund offers).

In addition, only Meniga employees with special rights have access to the databases that contain transaction data and other user data. In addition, all employee reviews are recorded.

Your information shared

Meniga never shares your personal information. The only information that Meniga shares is statistical reports and / or analyzes based on aggregated and non-personally identifiable data from a group of users, see "Reasons for data collection" above.

Control of your information

The following sections contain information about how you can access, delete or update your information:

Access to and updating your information

All transactions from bank accounts and cards that Meniga stores as well as other personal information that you have provided are accessible following the registration on meniga.is.

There you can also correct and / or update the personal information you have chosen to share with Meniga.

Export of your information

Meniga allows you to back up your information stored in Meniga's databases. However, this does not apply to transaction information as it is available to you at the banking or financial institution with which you do business. To request a copy of your information, you can contact us via oryggismal (at) meniga.is.

Deletion of your information

If you decide to stop using Meniga by deleting your Meniga user account, Meniga will delete all personal information about you stored by Meniga (including account and card entries as well as account and card status).

The exception to this is entries related to earned refunds in refund offers, if you have chosen to take advantage of them.

Meniga, however, does not delete data that has been made completely impersonal, which is the case when your data has been compiled with other users' data and therefore cannot be reconnected to you in any way.

Compliance with regulations and cooperation with regulators

Privacy and security have always been very important to Meniga, as it is a cornerstone of the trust that exists between us and the users of the service. At the beginning of Meniga's operations, we took the initiative to contact the Data Protection Authority and request their audit of Meniga's operations to ensure that it complies with laws and regulations. Security measures and respect for our users' privacy have therefore been an integral part of Meniga's genome from the beginning, and we therefore welcome improved legislation that further secures our users' rights and sets clear boundaries for companies on how individuals' personal information can be used.

Meniga regularly reviews this security and privacy policy and adheres to it when it comes to the processing of your information.

Data security and access management equal to bank security

All communications are encrypted, both with users and banks (marked in the browser with the "https" prefix in front of the URL and a picture of the padlock). The Meniga.is databases are also encrypted.

Access control is mostly the same as in online banking, e.g. automatic check-out after 15 minutes, "secure" password requirements, etc. The website and its databases are hosted in a locked and monitored room by a security-certified host. Meniga's current host is Microsoft, which has ISO-27001 security certification.

User information is only accessible, and only as needed, to Meniga's staff who operate, develop, or improve the Service. All Meniga employees have a clean criminal record and are bound by a duty of confidentiality regarding anything they may become aware of about users' well-being. Meniga actively monitors employees and reserves the right to report any breach of confidentiality to the appropriate authorities. Meniga's supervision is i.a. This means that all employees 'access to users' data is registered in a database so that Meniga's security manager can always see who has viewed the information.

The security managers of Icelandic financial institutions with which Meniga cooperates have reviewed Meniga's security issues and confirmed that Meniga meets the strictest security requirements.

Meniga is one of the very few Icelandic companies that has an EV SSL certificate for encrypted internet communication from Verisign (identified in green browsers in the URL field). In addition, Meniga has a "Hacker-safe" certification from McAfee which confirms that it is not possible to use known methods to break into Meniga.is' web servers.

Personally identifiable information is kept to a minimum

Meniga's policy is to store and process as little personally identifiable information as possible in order to provide the service. There is no e.g. ask for your name, ID number, address or other personal information. In order to be able to communicate with users, however, Meniga requests an email address, which in some cases can be personally identifiable (users can, however, choose to use an impersonal email address). If users use an unidentifiable email address and do not provide Meniga with a mobile phone number, Meniga does not have any personally identifiable information about users.

Meniga has access to transaction information and not bank account numbers or credit card numbers (at Meniga's request, financial institutions provide us with distorted account numbers and credit card numbers when retrieving data).

If a user chooses to participate in Meniga's refund offers, Meniga will request an account number and ID number in order to be able to pay the earned refund to the selected account. Both the account number and ID number are encrypted in the Meniga database.

Meniga has access to detailed financial information and will treat all users' information as personal information and therefore promises to operate in full accordance with Icelandic law on personal data protection and handling.

Meniga has notified the Data Protection Authority of its activities as required by the Data Protection Act and the processing of personal data.

Read-only access to bank accounts and credit cards

Meniga does not have access to the implementation of any financial actions on behalf of users. Meniga has only (with the permission of users) read access to posts.

Users can revoke access to accounts and credit cards at any time in their online bank or in the app or on Meniga's website.

Meniga warrants not to use user information in an irresponsible, insecure or immoral manner

Under no circumstances will Meniga hand over, sell or lease personal or financial information (transactions or account balances) of users to third parties.

Meniga will never provide users' communication information (eg email address or mobile phone number) to third parties except their potential partners involved in providing the service (eg banks and financial institutions) and never for any purpose other than to have moderate and normal communication with users regarding their access. and use of Meniga's services.

Users (but not Meniga) have their personal and financial information and have sole access to it (by logging in to Meniga's services). All information provided by Meniga to Meniga or which Meniga obtains with their permission from third parties (eg information on bank account and credit card transactions) is collected solely for the purpose of providing the service to users.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Meniga reserves the right to compile non-personally identifiable statistical summaries and other derivative information that is undoubtedly non-personally identifiable and uses it for commercial purposes or to disclose to third parties for material and valid reasons, e.g. as follows:

  1. Due to research by responsible parties on financial behavior.
  2. As part of Meniga.is' services, e.g. so that users can compare their consumption patterns with the averages of other users of the site.
  3. So that Meniga can inform advertisers and other partners about the composition and consumption behavior of the site's users. E.g. Meniga may inform advertisers or affiliates of the percentage of users purchasing a particular product or service or offer advertisers that their ad will only appear to a certain group of users who meet certain (non-personally identifiable) criteria if Meniga does not consider it against the interests of users.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Meniga also reserves the right to disclose user information to third parties if:

  1. Meniga is required to do so by law.
  2. Meniga is acquired or merged with another company but only in accordance with the provisions of this security policy (so that the new company will continue to operate similar services on the same terms).
  3. Meniga users give their informed consent to give other users of the website or external parties access to their registration and / or financial information for a purpose that is in accordance with the goals and services of the website (e.g. to expand the service with the help of third parties). However, this will never be done unless Meniga considers that the parties in question meet similar requirements as are stated here regarding security issues and the handling of information.

In order to provide the service free of charge, Meniga relies in part on advertising to finance its operations. All advertisements in Meniga's services are clearly marked and demarcated from edited material, such as e.g. savings tips and practical information. In some cases, Meniga may invite advertisers to control the display of ads so that the ad appears only to those users who are likely, based on their consumption patterns, to be interested in the ad. However, this is never done if Meniga does not consider it in the interests of users.

When users visit Meniga's services, Meniga may collect technical information about their use, e.g. about the type of browser, which websites users visit on Meniga.is, the time users spend on the service, etc. This kind of information is only used to improve the user experience of the service, e.g. by improving the design of the service or informing users of possible technical problems in their equipment.

When users block access to Meniga's website, all information belonging to them will be immediately deleted from Meniga's computer systems. However, user information may exist in encrypted form in backups of Meniga databases for up to two months after the access is blocked.

Meniga's terms of use and security policy will always be accessible on the Meniga.is website. Meniga reserves the right to change this security policy from time to time as necessary.
