Without our users’ data, ClaimCompass Ltd would not be able to function. That’s why we take our users’ data privacy very seriously and have set in place a privacy protection policy, which is robust, secure and in compliance with all applicable regulations. Below you will find more information on the types of data we collect and how we use it. 

ClaimCompass Ltd is incorporated in the European Union and registered with the Bulgarian Commercial Registry under the unique identifying number 203643295. ClaimCompass is also an authorised and registered data controller and administrator under the Commission on the Protection of Personal Data with a registration number 417505. 

Under Regulation 2016/679 of the European Parliament and Council, also known as the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR for short, ClaimCompass is obliged to process all personal data, such as name, address, telephone number and email addresses in compliance with the Regulation and the applicable provisions on data protection of the Bulgarian legislation. 

Collection and use of personal data

„Personal data“ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. An identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number (e.g. social security number) or one or more factors specific to his physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

ClaimCompass does not collect nor store any of the aforementioned data unless it has been provided by the user in preparation of entering into an agreement and/or contract, in the process of entering into an agreement and/or contract, or in any other case where the user has provided explicit consent (e.g. when filing a claim and providing the requested information in the Compensation Calculator, signing up for a newsletter, or taking part in a survey). 

Legal basis for the processing of personal data 

In accordance with the obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation, ClaimCompass collects and processes personal data on the basis of preparation for entering into a contract or in cases where a contract has already been made, in accordance with its Conditions of use. 
ClaimCompass stores, processes and transfers your personal data only with your consent and as required for each specific case, e.g. to respond to your personal inquiries, fulfill your claim request, as well as inform you about the status of your claim.  

Objectives of the personal data processing

The personal data submitted by the user to ClaimCompass is stored automatically and is necessary in order to identify registered users as customers and consequently, represent their claim before the airline pursuant to EU Regulation 261/2004. Providing the personal data is a contractual requirement and essential to the nature of ClaimCompass’ service in securing compensation for flight disruptions under EU Regulation 261/2004. Should a user not agree to provide the requested personal data, ClaimCompass would not be able to enter into an agreement with the user, or, should inaccurate information be provided, the latter will be deemed void. The personal data collected and processed by ClaimCompass includes first and last name, address, telephone number, email address, and in certain cases, a copy of a personal identification document, if required by the applicable legislation for representation. 

Any other transfer of your personal data, for example the transfer of logon data from our website to a third party’s social community website or web service like Facebook or Twitter, requires your explicit prior consent. ClaimCompass guarantees that it will not sell or lease your personal data to a third party and will only process your personal data in line with the above mentioned objectives. 

Use of personal data for remarketing

ClaimCompass does not use your personal data for advertising or marketing purposes. We may use your data to create and maintain a user profile. We may also use the data provided by you for analyzing and improving the effectiveness of our website services, advertising, marketing, market research, and sales efforts.
