2. How we use and collect your personal data?

“Personal data” is defined as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. “Identifiable” refers to identifiers (such as name, identification number, location data, etc.), that can be used to directly or indirectly identify a natural person.

The personal data we collect, is collected and used for the purposes as listed hereunder:

  • In the event that you use the contact form on our website, we will use your personal data in order to reply to your query, via e-mail or telephone.
  • In the event that you engage in a transaction with us, we collect your personal information in order to process the minimum required information, to make or process a payment for the purchase of services, to provide you with our services and permit us to send you your orders, quotes or to contact you.
  • In case you register for an event, your e-mail address and contact data will be used in order to send you an invitation & follow up on the event. 
  • We process your personal data for the purpose of supporting the website and enhancing your user experience, which includes ensuring the security, availability, performance, capacity and health of the website.
  • We process your personal data to enforce or exercise any rights that are available to us based on the applicable law, such as use for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • We may also use your personal data to fulfil our obligations as set out by the applicable law.

The following categories of personal data can be distinguished:

  • Contact data: in the event that you make use of the contact form, you will be asked to provide the following information: name, e-mail address, company name (if applicable), country and any personal data that you choose to put in the designated blank field (please do not provide us with any sensitive information, such as health information, information pertaining to criminal convictions, or credit card/account numbers). This is information that is provided directly by you.
  • Usage data: We collect personal data regarding your activities on our website: IP address, device ID and type, referral source, language settings, browser type, operating system, geographical location, length of visit, page views, or information about the timing, frequency and pattern of your service use. This information may be aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information regarding the use of our website. In the event that the usage data is completely anonymised (and can therefore not be traced back to you as an individual), this will not be considered personal data for the purpose of this Privacy Policy. This is personal data that is automatically collected through your use of the website.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data can be legitimate interest (optimisation of the website experience, security, fraud detection), the execution of a contract (in case you engage with us as part of a contract for the execution of one or more services). 

In the event that the legal basis for the processing of your personal data is consent, you will, at all times, have the right to withdraw your consent. This will, however, not affect the lawfulness of any processing done prior to the withdrawal of consent.

In the event that the legal basis for processing is our legitimate interests and/or the public interest, you will have the right to object to such processing, as set out in article 4. of this Privacy policy.

Your personal data will solely be used for the purposes as set out in this article.


3. Retention of your data and deletion

Your personal information will not be kept for longer than is necessary for the specified purpose above. However, considering it is not possible for us to specify a period in advance, the period of retention will be determined as follows: retention will be determined based upon a legal requirement to retain the data, legitimate interest and the necessity to keep the data for the specified purpose.

In the event that you withdraw your consent or you object to our use of your personal data, and such objection is successful, we will remove your personal data from our databases. 

Please note that we will retain the personal data necessary to ensure your preferences are respected in the future.
The foregoing will, however, not prevent us from retaining any personal data if this is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, in order to file a legal claim or defend ourselves against a legal claim, or for evidential purposes.

  • the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.

If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. 
You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.
