Your Privacy is essential to us!
Entnest’s mission is to Connect Entrepreneurs – the people who want to CREATE their future
By design, and default, we will need to hold and manage data about you in order to provide you with the Services you want from us.
We will not hold and manage any other data than what you have provided us through your actions and use of our Services.
We will not sell the data we collect about you to anybody outside Entnest.
Only Entnesters can advertise in Entnest. We will only use our developed system for advertisement in Entnest.
There will be a free membership option in Entnest, but you can also opt in, for a very small investment fee, to have access to even more powerful elements that will provide you the improved chance to achieve success faster.
If you no longer want to use our services, you can request IRREVERSIBLE anonymization.
If you want to continue with our service, but want to remove partial data, it’s not something we currently can do. Instead, you would have to close your current account and open a new one. You are responsible for your actions through our services.
Entnest is a virtual platform consisting of a Marketplace and a strong Community.
In order for us to be able to assist and give you the chance to achieve success faster through our services, we need information about you.

Entnest is responsible, within the limit of our resources, to keep the data you provide us as safe as possible and following GDPR.
We are working hard at implementing safety, security and privacy measures required under GDPR. We will continue to develop our safeguards along the journey.
Continuous improvements are always under way.
Our decision makers and key people in our organization and with our business partners are aware that the law is changing to the GDPR. All appreciate the impact this is likely to have.
We have documented what personal data we hold, where it came from and who we share it with.
We have reviewed our current privacy notices and put a plan in place for making necessary changes
- Communicating Privacy Information
We have checked our procedures to ensure they cover all the rights individuals have, including how we would delete/irreversibly anonymize personal data and provide data electronically in a commonly used format.
We have updated our procedures and plan how we will handle requests within the set timelines and provide any additional information.
We have identified the lawful basis for our processing activity in the GDPR, documented it and updated our privacy notice to explain it.
- Lawful basis for processing personal data
We have reviewed how we seek, record and manage consent and whether we need to make any changes. We have refreshed existing consents to assure they meet the GDPR standard.
Our services are not intended for people below the age of 18 and members need to confirm that they are at least 18 when they join Entnest.
We have made sure we have the right procedures in place to detect, report and investigate a personal data breach.
We have familiarized ourselves with the code of practice on Privacy Impact Assessments.
- Data Protection by Design and Data Protection Impact Assessments
Data Protection is part of the responsibility of our CEO.
Entnest is a Swiss based company. We utilize AWS for our hosting services.
Entnest also follow the seven principles recommended by OECD for protection of personal data:
- Notice - data subjects should be given notice when their data is being collected,
- Purpose - data should only be used for the purpose stated and not for any other purposes,
- Consent - data should not be disclosed without the data subject’s consent,
- Security - collected data should be kept secure from any potential abuses,
- Disclosure - data subjects should be informed as to who is collecting their data,
- Access - data subjects should be allowed to access their data and make corrections to any inaccurate data, and
- Legal - data subjects should have a method available to them to hold data collectors accountable for not following the above principles.
Entnest collects information about you both directly (you updating your profile information or adding knowledge, for example) and indirectly (for instance, How you rate different pieces of knowledge from other members, Surveys you answer etc, but also WiFi access points, the device you use etc). For some time after our launch on Sept 1, 2016, we will record the user activities on the site. We will do this in order to see where users have some difficulties and subsequently to determine where we have improvement opportunities. The recordings and all personal identifiable information will be deleted as soon as we have taken note of essential improvements needed. The notes will not cover any personal identifiable information - only details needed for the below Purpose.
We collect your information in order to be able to provide the best services we can to you and other members.
By using our Services, you consent to us collecting and using the information you have provided us to enhance our Services to you and other members.
We are doing what we can to keep your data safe with us, but like all other information and services on internet, we can never give a 100% guarantee.
The data we collect can be stored on the servers we use (all based in Switzerland), but also on your local device using mechanisms such as browser web storage, application data caches, cookies and similar technologies.
You can access your Direct information through the Profile Management screens. You should update your information to correctly reflect your situation and to thus get an even better experience of our Services.
