The Basis On Which We Process Your Information?  ​

We make sure that we always have justification required by the law to manage your personal data. We might manage your data for more than one reason but we make sure that always at least one legislative precondition exists to manage the data.   

We manage customer and marketing register data mostly in order to follow and prepare agreements, as well as, based on our legitimate interests in service delivery, customer management, direct marketing, product development, management of customer feedback and reclamations, as well as, offering maintenance and further development services. ​

We might manage your data also to meet statutory obligations. ​  

Who Manages Your Data?  

Your personal data is mostly managed by our own personnel. ​Some of your data may be given confidentially to our subcontractors who manage the data under a written assignment. Our subcontractors manage the data in a pre-agreed fashion based on our instructions and limited to the purposes explained in this Privacy Policy. ​  

Regarding our customers' personal data, we use subcontractors specifically for data storage, customer management (cloud storages, online course services, project management tools, communication tools, and CRM), technical support, as well as, designing and implementing websites and apps.   

Regarding personnel, we use subcontractors specifically for financial management, payroll and online data storage (cloud storage). ​  

We might also disclose information in order to meet contractual obligations or if required by the law or authorities.​   We might also hand over your data should we take part in business acquisition.    We might also hand over anonymized or statistical data that is impossible to associate with individuals. If such data is no longer viewed as personal data, we might disclose that data to 3rd parties for purposes other than defined on this Privacy Policy. ​  

Will Your Data Be Transferred Outside EU

Your data might be transferred outside the EU under certain circumstances. Some of the cloud services we use might be located outside the EU. At times, we have used system and design subcontractors that are located outside the EU.  

​If your data is transferred outside the EU; we make sure that the country is a country of sufficient data protection, the transfer receiver is Privacy Shield certified (transfer receivers located in the USA) or that the transfer is executed under the model clauses published by the European Commission. We always see through that the potential data transfer is executed with sufficient protection and as justified by the law.  

How Long Is Your Data Stored?  

We don't store your data longer than necessary, or what our agreement or the law requires or allows. We store data only as long as it is needed for the purpose it was collected for. Storage periods may vary depending on the use of the data and other circumstances. How long data is stored may also be defined by legislation like accounting law. We aim to keep your information updated and unnecessary data will be deleted.  

How We Protect Your Data?

Your information is primarily stored in a digital format at our service provider's servers, which are protected according to the general practices of the industry.

The personal data we collect remains confidential and is only disclosed to employees who need the data in their work and confidentially and limited by an agreement to our subcontractors. ​  

Access to your personal data is limited and protected by user names, passwords, and access rights. Our premises are locked and secured.​​  

Is Providing Personal Data Mandatory?  

If you don't provide us your consent to collecting and managing personal data, we won't be able to provide most of our services to you and thus fulfill the purpose of our existence. Thus, if you don't wish us to manage your data according to this Privacy Policy, we ask you not to provide us with any information.  ​
