Whether we receive your Personal Data directly from you or from a third party, we process your Personal Data only if we have a legitimate basis for doing so, such as:

(a) on the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR)

This is where you have given us express consent to process your Personal Data for a specific purpose. For example, by filling out our “contact form” you consent to the processing of your Personal Data for contact purposes, by providing us with your business card you consent to the processing of the Personal Data contained therein for business purposes. You have the right to withdraw this consent at any time by contacting us at the address given in Section 1 above.

Where necessary, we process your Personal Data for purposes arising from a legitimate interest pursued by the controller or a third party. For example:

9. How long your data will be stored

Your Personal Data will be stored in accordance with our Data Retention Policy, which sets out the appropriate retention period for each category of data. We will retain your Personal Data only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, including to comply with any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and applicable legal requirements.

Under certain circumstances, we may anonymize your Personal Data (so that it can no longer be linked to you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use the Personal Data indefinitely without further notice to you.

10. What Personal Data protection rights I have

Each Data Subject (person who holds rights under this policy) has the right of access, the right to rectification, the right to erasure, the right to restrict processing, the right to object, and the right to data portability. The right of access and the right to erasure are subject to restrictions under the GDPR. Data Subjects also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of Personal Data violates the provisions of the GDPR.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or exercise other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unreasonable, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in such circumstances.
