3. Your Personal Data and How We Use It

We may process the following categories of personal data:

  • The source and specific categories of personal data that we did not obtain directly from you; 
  • Data we may process and for what purposes; 
  • Legal basis for processing. 

We may process data about your use of our website (“usage data”). Information about the use of services may include your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, time and date of your visit, pages viewed and navigation paths on the website, in addition to information about your timing, frequency and pattern of service use. 

The usage data is sourced through our analytical service, Canddi. Data concerning usage of the website may be processed in order to analyze its usage. We have a legitimate interest in monitoring and improving our website, which is the legal basis for this processing. 

Submitting an inquiry regarding products or services to us may involve the processing of an inquiry data (‘enquiry data’). In some cases, enquiry data may be processed in order to offer and sell products and services to you. By submitting an inquiry request and providing data regarding yourself, you are providing consent for this processing. 

Towards our customer and supplier relationships, we may process information relating to customer and supplier contacts (“relationship data”). Names, employer names, job titles, and roles, as well as contact information, may be part of the relationship data we hold about you and your employer. We gather this data from you or from your employer. Relationship information may be used for various purposes, including managing our relationships with our customers and suppliers, communicating with customers and suppliers, recording those communications, marketing our products and services to customers, and managing supply agreements. This processing is conducted on the basis of our legitimate interests, namely managing the relationships we have with customers and suppliers.

4. Data sharing with others

We may disclose your personal data to any member of our company, insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes, and on the legal bases, set out in this policy. 

We may share name, address, email address and telephone number with our suppliers or subcontractors, to the extent it is reasonable to do so for the provision of products and services relevant to the enquiry.

Your enquiry data may be disclosed to one or more third party suppliers of products, goods and services in order to enable them to contact you so they can offer and sell products and services to you that come to your interest. When we provide enquiry data to such third parties, they will act as data controllers in respect of this information, and upon contacting you, they will provide to you a copy of their privacy policies, which govern how they will use your personal information. 

Beyond the specific disclosures of personal data detailed in this Section, we may disclose your personal data where we are required to comply with a legal obligation under which we operate, or where it is necessary to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another individual or company.

5. Transfers of your personal data internationally

The information in this Section explains the circumstances in which your personal data may be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA). 

In addition to our own offices and facilities outside the EEA, we have other group companies and distributors that do the same. These countries each have received an “adequacy decision” from the European Commission regarding their data protection laws. Data will be transferred out of each of these countries using appropriate safeguards, such as standard data protection clauses that may have been adopted by the European Commission. A copy of such safeguards may be obtained by contacting gdpr@localhost. 

Our website’s hosting facility is located in the US. 

By using our website, you acknowledge that our website may make your personal data available around the world. It is not within our control whether such data is used (or misused) by others.

6. Protecting Your Personal Data

We store the information you provide to us on our secure servers and, for backup purposes, we might also store that information offsite in an encrypted format. To prevent the loss, misuse, or unauthorised access to your personal information, alteration, or disclosure, we utilize appropriate security measures. Also, we restrict access to personal information about you only to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who need that information for business purposes. Those companies will only process your personal information under our instructions and are held accountable for maintaining the confidentiality of such information.

Information transmitted via the internet is not completely secure, and therefore you are responsible for the security of any data you send to us electronically. 

We implement procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will inform you of any suspected breach if required by law.

7. Retaining and deleting personal information

In order to fulfill the specific purposes for which we collected the information, including complying with legal, accounting, and reporting requirements, your personal information will be retained for as long as necessary. Detailed information about data retention can be found in the Data Retention Policy. 

We consider the amount, nature, sensitivity, and risk to your personal data from unauthorized use or disclosure, the functions for which we use your personal data and whether they can be achieved through other means, and the legal requirements associated with its retention. 

We may, under some circumstances, anonymize your personal information so that it cannot be linked to you, and we may use the information without further consultation with you.

If you object to our use of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes), we will stop processing it. We will cease to process the data if you object after receiving your request. 

The right to object refers to your right to object to the processing of your personal data for purposes relating to scientific or historical research or statistical purposes when the processing is based on your particular situation, except when it is necessary for the performance of a task of public interest.

When you submit personal information to us, you have the right to receive it in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. In certain circumstances, including those where it would adversely affect others’ rights and freedoms, this right does not apply. 

Whenever we process your personal information, there is a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection if you believe this is in violation of data protection laws. As a matter of convenience, the EU member state where you habitually reside, where you work, or wherever the alleged violation took place may be contacted. 

In the event that consent is the legal basis for processing your information, you may withdraw your consent at any time. You will still be able to make use of your information prior to withdrawing your consent. 

Throughout this document you will find information about your personal data and the ways in which you can exercise those rights. All you need to do is write or email GDPR@localhost with the details.
