You Own Your Own Data: Information We Ask You For

If you need some context for this page, see You Own Your Own Data, YOYOD. Also, we have an overview of data we collect.

This is an overview of the data we ask you for when you create a free Hudya account, and how data about you is handled and shared with our partners. All Hudya customer data are stored in Amazon Web Services (AWS) data center in Frankfurt, Germany, with proper access control. AWS employees do not have access to our customer data.

We have signed a so-called Data Processing Agreement with each of our partners that have access to any personally identifiable data from our customers, and all either have data and process data in the EEA region or are covered by the US Privacy Shield as required by EU GDPR. Note that Cisco Webex Teams and Tresorit are Hudya internal collaboration tools (chat and file storage). These are end to end encrypted and cannot be accessed by the service providers.  Use of these tools are covered by the Hudya Code of Conduct for Privacy.

Information Opt-Out and Storage Time

The basic information is mandatory for Hudya account (full name, email, and mobile number). You can opt to not provide us with any other information, and you can at any time withdraw your consent. We keep the data as long as you have a Hudya account, but if you choose to, you can at any time request us to delete your account.  We will then only retain data necessary to fulfill legal obligations.


The whole cookie thing is a hot topic in privacy law right now. Hudya uses Google Analytics and tracking cookies from Facebook to track how successfull a campaign is. We do not use Google’s Analytics Advertising Features, and you can opt out of Analytics by installing a browser add-on (see the Google link in the table).  We would love to make it super-simple to say no to Google and Facebook tracking cookies. But since we don’t want to turn them off for everybody (it is important to know if our advertising money is worth it), it would make a terrible user experience. Please contact us if you know of a good approach!
