The purposes of our data collection and what types of data we collect

Monil provides Internet-enabled devices (our “Devices”) that are designed to monitor the position and behaviour of livestock where they may be at any time. We also provide a mobile application (our “App”) and/or a web dashboard (“Dashboard”) that is designed to work in tandem with our Devices to provide you with information on the position and activities of the animals, managing available grazing areas for the animals, and seeing positional data from the user’s mobile device. We provide a service through the App and/or Dashboard that is designed to provide you with animal overview and management for animals on which our devices are mounted (our “Service”). In order to enjoy the full functionality of our Service, we require that you set up an account. In addition, our Service might include notifications and warnings on the behaviour of your livestock.

We collect and process your personal data for various purposes depending on who you are and how we get in touch with you. We collect the following personal data for the purposes mentioned below:


Disclosure of personal data to others

Except as described above, we do not disclose your personal data to others unless there is a legal obligation for such disclosure. Examples as to the basis for disclosure could typically be a contract with you or legal basis in the law instructing us to provide the information.

Monil uses data processors to collect, store or in other ways process data on our behalf. In such cases we have concluded data processing agreements to ensure the information security in all segments of the data processing.

We currently use the following data processors:

  • Amazon (Amazon Web Services). Data about you is processed by Amazon to provide customer support, handling your user account and handling the name, location and sensor data of your device. The processing is required for us to provide the Service to you and also based on our legitimate commercial interest in processing these data for this purpose.
  • Data about you is processed by Slack to gather account data and information about your use of the Services in order to troubleshoot and manage customer service issues. The processing is based on our legitimate commercial interest in processing these data for this purpose.

Transfer to third countries will be protected by appropriate safeguards, namely the use of standard data protection clauses adopted or approved by the European Commission.


Storage, Retention period

We only store your personal data for as long as necessary for the purpose the data was collected for.

This means that personal data collection based on your consent will be deleted if you withdraw your consent unless we are required to retain all or part of the data under applicable law. Data processed for the purpose of our newsletter will for instance be deleted after withdrawal of your consent.

Personal data we process in the performance of a contract with you will be deleted when the contract is implemented and all obligations pursuant to the contract have been implemented. Personal data related to your user account, including location data, is retained until you delete your account, after such time the data is aggregated and may be stored for up to five years.
