Personal data is information about an identified or identifiable natural person. "Identifiable natural person" means a person who can be directly or indirectly identified specifically by reference to an identifier, e.g. name, identification number, location information, online identifier or other factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.
The processing of Personal Data refers to an action or a combination of actions related to Personal Data - regardless of whether it occurs automatically or not - such as collection, registration, organization, structuring, storage, processing or modification, production, reading, use, delivery by transmission, dissemination or other provision, adjustment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
We mainly process Personal Data collected directly from the individual in question, or other persons connected to the individual such as a manager or colleague. At times Focalpay collects Personal Information from third parties such as partners or social media platforms, relating to marketing, recruitment or public records.
