5. Legal Basis

Necessary processing of personal data to fulfill our agreement with you:
Where processing is necessary for purposes that affect the Company's or third party's legitimate interests, the Company may process personal data on the basis of a balance of interests. Such interests include the Company's commercial interest in maintaining a good customer relationship with you, providing you with information that is relevant to your use of the Service, improving and further developing the Service, and marketing the Company's products and services (e.g., for the purposes specified in paragraphs above). Thus, "legitimate interests" means our interest in conducting and managing our business to enable us to provide you with the best Services possible and a good and safe user experience. For example, we have a legitimate interest in ensuring that marketing is relevant to you; therefore, we may process your personal information to adapt marketing to your interests, e.g. adapted to your use of Services. Eligible interests may also refer to treatment that is also in your own or third party's interest.
We may also process your personal data to:
You may refrain from receiving marketing communications from us and / or our affiliates at any time by clicking on "unsubscribe" in the e-mail and SMS communication that we send you. We may process your personal data to protect you (and other customers, suppliers, and business partners) against fraud, infringement, and other fraudulent use of our Services and to ensure that our Services and systems are secure. When processing personal data on the basis of a balance of interest, we ensure that we take into account and balance the potential impact of the processing on you (both positive and negative) as well as your interests and rights under applicable data protection legislation. If you have comments or objections to our processing based on a balance of interests, you have the right to object to such processing at any time. For more information on your rights, please see information under the heading "Your rights and choices" below.
Treatment with the explicit consent:
The same personal data may be processed for several purposes and / or supported by more than one of the legal grounds set forth above.

6. Security and Transfer of Personal Data

Transfer of Personal Data to a Third Party

We will not share, sell, transfer or otherwise disclose personal data beyond what is stated in this Privacy Policy, unless we are required to do so by law or as a result of a court decision or if we have obtained your consent to such disclosure. The Company may disclose personal data to third parties, such as the police or other authority, whether it is investigating suspected crime or if we are otherwise obliged to disclose such information with the support of law or governmental decisions. The Company may use external suppliers to perform tasks on behalf of the Company, e.g. to provide IT services, update address information or assist with marketing and analytics. The provision of these services may mean that the Company's suppliers, both within the EU / EEA and outside the EU / EEA, have access to personal data. These providers process personal data on our behalf in accordance with written personal data assistance agreements and our instructions. Personal Data Assistants who access your personal data (for example, when we use a third party, to obtain address information or store information on a server), are not given any right to use your personal data for purposes other than the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, but will primarily be used to the extent necessary to provide the Service.

Transfer of Personal Data to a Third Country

The Company may cooperate with partners who process personal data within and outside the EU / EEA. In the event that the Company chooses to hire suppliers outside the EU / EEA, e.g. in such cases, the Company will take special safeguards, such as the signing of agreements that include standardized model data transfer clauses adopted by the EU Commission and available on the EU Commission's website or companies that maintain the same level of protection as within the EU / EEA through that e.g. have joined the so-called The EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement.

Security for Protection of Personal Data

The Company protects your privacy and that will also contain high security for your personal data. The Company has taken appropriate security measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, alteration, dissemination, or destruction. All processing of your personal data is done under strict confidentiality.

7. Storage and Thinning out of Personal Data

The processing takes place in accordance with current legislation and means that personal data is not stored for a longer period than is necessary for the purposes of the processing. We will store your personal information as long as you choose to have a user account with us or, if you do not have a user account, until the service you have chosen to perform is completed. The same personal data can be stored in several different places for different purposes. This may mean that an information that has been removed from a system because it is no longer necessary may remain in another system where it is stored with the support of another legal basis or for another purpose where the personal data is still needed. If you subscribe to our newsletter, your contact information will be saved as long as you choose to continue to receive the newsletter. This means, in practical terms, that data is thinned out and deleted as they are no longer relevant or necessary for analysis or direct marketing for the purposes for which they have been collected. Some information can be retained for longer when required by other legal requirements, such as the Accounting Act.

8. Your Rights and Choices

Regarding the processing of your personal data, you have several rights that result from applicable data protection legislation. To exercise your rights, you are welcome to contact the Company via the contact details provided at the end of this Privacy Policy.

You have the right to request and receive confirmation on whether the Company processes personal data about you. If so, you have the right to receive free information about the processing as well as a copy of the personal data that is processed. For any additional copies, the Company is entitled to charge a reasonable fee based on the Company's administrative costs for such copies. If the request is manifestly unfounded or unreasonable, the Company may, in accordance with applicable data protection legislation, charge a reasonable fee for such request or refuse to comply with such request.

Right to Rectify Incorrect Personal Data

You have the right to receive incorrect personal information about you corrected without undue delay. Depending on the purpose of the treatment, you also have the right to supplement incomplete personal data.

In some cases, you have the right to have your personal data deleted, e.g.
However, the right to delete does not apply in certain cases, e.g. if the processing is necessary for the Company to fulfill a legal obligation or for the Company to be able to establish, make a claim or defend legal claims.

Right to Restrict

In some cases, you have the right to request that the Company limit the processing of your personal data, e.g. if you do not consider the personal data to be accurate so that the Company has time to verify this, if the processing is illegal and you do not want us to delete the data. If the Company no longer needs the information but you need it for legal claims or if you object to the Company's processing with the aid of a balance of interest, pending verification of whether the Company's or third party's legitimate reasons outweigh your legitimate reasons.

Right to Object

You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data based on a balance of interests, including profiling. The Company may not continue to process such personal data unless the Company cannot present compelling justifiable reasons for such processing that outweighs your interests, rights and freedoms.
