Equality Check Privacy Policy

This statement describes the types of personal data we may collect and process about you if you have left a review, visited our website or requested information from us.

All references to “we” and “us” refer to the Norwegian company AS Shesgotthis (data controller), who own the product Equality Check. If you have any further questions after reading this statement, do not hesitate to contact us on hello@shesgotthis.co.

The purpose of processing personal data is to provide a community-based platform of employee reviews rating equality in companies. The data you submit about your company will be publicly visible on the website, but your review will never be publicly associated with your identity on the website. The legal basis for this processing is your consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us on hello@shesgotthis.co

The data we collect

Participant data

In connection with the review we process information about our participants in order to provide the rating of equality in companies. The customer data we collect are:

  • E-mail adress

We require email to verify you but your email will never be associated with your review. We will use your email to provide you with updates, news and information about Equalitycheck.

  • Survey information regarding equality in the company you are reviewing

  • Age

  • Gender

We may also process the following personal information defined as “special categories of personal data”. It is completely voluntary to answer the boxes marked with “OPTIONAL”, these answers contains special categories of personal data. The legal basis of this processing is your explicit consent.

Special categories of personal information:

  • Sexuality (sexual orientation)

  • Ethnicity racial or ethnic origin (ethnic minority background)

  • Health data (disability)

How will your data be presented when the platform is live?

When the platform is live, we will publish information on how employees rate their companies in terms of equality. We will never reveal your identity in doing so, and you will remain completely anonymous. To ensure your anonymity, we will publish ratings as average ratings, and we will not publish information about a company unless more than five people have rated the company. If more than five people within a special category of personal information have rated the company, we may give an average rating of how this special category rates equality in the company. I.e. (LGBTQ employees rate this company 5 stars). We will not combine categories of personal or other information in a way that indirectly expose the identity of the reviewer. Freetext will be published, but may be flagged and deleted if it does not comply with our code of conduct*.

Reviews will not be deleted unless you specifically request so. Other personal data, other than your email, is deleted within 5 years after submitting it to the site.
