5. Basis for Collecting and Processing Data

The legal bases for processing personal data are as follows under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):

  1. the data subject has given consent to the processing of their personal data for one or more specific purposes (GDPR Article 6 (1.a))
  2. processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract (GDPR Article 6 (1.b))
  3. processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the data controller or a third party (GDPR Article 6(1.f)).

The legitimate interest of the data controller is based on the relevant and appropriate relationship between the data subject and the data controller, arising from the data subject’s status as a customer of the data controller. Processing takes place for purposes that the data subject could reasonably expect at the time of data collection in connection with the relevant relationship.

6. Content of the Register

The register contains the following personal data for all registered individuals:

  1. personal and contact information: first name, last name, address, phone number, email address
  2. information related to the person’s business or other organization and the person’s position or title in the organization
  3. permissions and restrictions related to direct marketing.

7. Data Retention Period

Data collected in the register is retained only as long and to the extent necessary for the original or compatible purposes for which the personal data was collected.

The need to retain personal data is assessed every five years, and in any case, the data concerning the data subject will be removed from the register five years after the end of the data subject’s customer relationship with the data controller, and when the obligations and actions related to the customer relationship have been completed. For example, accounting records are retained for five years from the end of the financial year.

The data controller regularly assesses the necessity of data retention in accordance with its internal guidelines. Additionally, the data controller takes all reasonable measures to promptly correct or erase inaccurate, erroneous, or outdated personal data in relation to the purposes of processing.

8. Regular Data Sources

Personal data is collected directly from the data subject.

Personal data is also collected and updated within the limits of applicable legislation from publicly available sources related to the implementation of the customer relationship between the data controller and the data subject. Information is also collected through the Google Analytics analytics tool.

9. Regular Disclosures of Data and Transfer of Data Outside the EU or the European Economic Area
