Who is concerned by this privacy policy

Every visitor of our website, people who use our services, e.g. who subscribe to our newsletter.

What information about you do we handle, why do we handle that information, what is the legal basis for those processings and for how long do we retain the information?

We handle the hereunder mentioned personal data that we collect directly from you or via cookies (see cookies policy)

The data processings that we conduct are there because either you have consented to it or for our legitimate interests. You can find those reasons and legal bases hereunder.

  • When you make use of our website 

We use a third-party service, Typeform, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. We do not make, and do not allow Typeform to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.

This data processing is based on your consent (article 6.1.a of the GDPR).

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (see Your Rights hereunder).

You can read more about how we use cookies on our Cookies page.

  • Based on our legitimate interests (article 6.1.f of the GDPR). 

When you register for newsletters, we gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies including clear gifs. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

  • When you email us, chat with us or otherwise contact us:

We process your contact details, when required, in order to provide you with the requested support. This data processing is based on your consent (article 6.1.a of the GDPR).

  • When you contact us to make use of your data subject rights:

We process your contact details and the proof of your identity you send us in order to address your request.  We can also, depending on your request, process other personal data we have collected also in order to address your request.

This data processing is for compliance with legal obligations to which we are subject (article 6.1.c of the GDPR).

We will store those data for a duration of  one year starting at the 1 st Jan of the year following the one where the request was made. This duration aims at having history of the case in case the data subject comes back with further request. Further, all our emails are archived for audit purposes for the duration of our audit obligations.

  • We can also collect data that you otherwise made public in order to contact you when we think it is relevant for your and our business (journalists, service providers…)

This data processing is based on our legitimate interests and aims at creating collaboration in our fields of activities (article 6.1.f of the GDPR).

We retain those data as long as they are relevant.


Use of service providers and transfer to third parties

We do have recourse to service providers as mentioned above.

Those service providers otherwise referred to as data processors are third parties who provide elements of support to Typeform. We have contracts in place with our data processors which exclude the transfer of personal data to a third country or international organisation. 

This means that they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have instructed them to do it. They will not share your personal information with any organisation apart from us. They will hold it securely and retain it for the period we instruct.

We do not transfer any of your data collected as mentioned above to any third party for commercial purposes.


How do we protect your personal data?

Your personal data is handled in full confidentiality. We make all necessary effort to take technical and organisational measures that might be required so as to ensure security of your personal data.
