III. How do we use your personal data?

Personal data is data that relates to you as an identifiable person. As we operate in the business-to-business segment, we process limited amounts of personal data.

Below you will find an overview of the purposes for which we typically process personal data, the categories of personal data that we typically process, and our legal basis for this:

  • To establish and manage our business relationships, for example your contact details and the name and address of the company that you are employed or engaged with.
  • To communicate with you over the phone, by email, or in other ways, such as when you contact us due to our business relationship with the company that you are employed or engaged with. You are free to choose whether to provide personal data to us.
  • To send newsletters and event invitations, for example, name, email address, and phone number that you provide to us if you sign up for our newsletters.

We may also collect or receive other categories of data if required to fulfill the purposes listed above.

The legal basis for processing your personal data for these purposes is our legitimate interest in operating our business in a manner common in our industry. Unless we have an existing customer relationship with you or your business, we will, if required by law, collect your consent before sending newsletters and event invitations. You may withdraw your consent at any time by using the unsubscribe feature or by contacting us.

We may also use your personal data for certain purposes that are not incompatible with the purpose for which the data was originally collected or received, such as audits, dispute resolution, and business development.

We do not make decisions with legal or similar effects that are fully automated (without human intervention). We do not perform profiling (analysis of your interests, preferences, etc.) of you.

IV. How do we share your personal data?

We only grant access to your personal data to people on a need-to-know basis.

We may share or give access to your personal data to our vendors. We will enter into data processing agreements with such vendors to ensure that they do not process your personal data for their own purposes.

We may sometimes share your personal data with certain of our business partners, such as owners or customers, to the extent required for us to operate our business in a manner common in our industry.

We do not disclose your personal data in any other ways, except when required to fulfill a legal obligation or when you have given your consent to do so.

We do not transfer personal data outside the EU/EEA or sell your data to any third party.

V. How long do we keep your personal data?

We keep your personal data if necessary for the purposes listed above. Some of the criteria that we use to determine when to delete your data are:

  • If we still have a business relationship with the company that you are employed or engaged with
  • If you have signed up to receive newsletters or invitations to events and have not yet unsubscribed

VI. Your privacy rights

You may request access to a copy of your data, to have incorrect data about you corrected, to have your data deleted, to have your data restricted from processing, to receive or have your data transferred to another party in a machine-readable format, and to object to the processing of your data. Note that conditions and limitations apply to these rights.

We process your data mainly within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). If data is transferred from one jurisdiction to another, we make sure that legal safeguards are in place to ensure the privacy and security of your data. We strive to conduct all our processing in the European Economic Area (EEA), but sometimes it may be necessary to transfer data to countries outside this region.
