From Where Do We Receive Data?
We receive information primarily from yourself, the authorities, credit information companies, contact information service providers, and other similar reliable sources.
We may also collect and update personal data for the purposes described in this privacy notice from publicly available sources such as newspapers and other news sources, professional social media networks, and company websites, as well as based on information received from the authorities or other third parties within the limits of the applicable legislation.
To Whom Do We Disclose Data and Do We Transfer Data Outside the EU or EEA?
We may disclose data from this customer, supplier, and marketing register to our co-operation partners who do marketing and arrange campaigns and events with and on behalf of us, and who consider themselves as controllers instead of processors working on our behalf (these parties are i.e. social media operators and advertisement networks). Otherwise, we do not disclose data from the register to external parties unless required by the legislation or an order by the authorities.
We utilize subcontractors that process personal data on behalf of and for us. We have outsourced our IT systems and the maintenance of our customer and marketing systems to outside service providers on whose administrated and protected servers the personal data is stored.
We transfer personal data outside the EU/EEA as a part of our operations. When we transfer personal data, we make sure that the personal data in question is appropriately protected and as required by the privacy legislation in force at the time by using the European Commission standard contractual clauses.
How Do We Protect the Data and for How Long Do We Store the Data?
The data is collected into databases protected by firewalls, passwords, and other technical measures. The databases and the backup copies of them are in locked premises and can be accessed only by certain pre-designated persons. Each user has a personal username and password to the systems where personal data are stored.
We store the data if it is necessary for the purpose of processing the data. Personal data in the customer, supplier, and marketing register is erased after the claim period related to a specific customer, supplier, or service relationship has elapsed. This period is typically five (5) years. Datastore period of Marketing registry’s prospect is 6 months after their last interaction with Avidly.
We regularly review the need for data storage considering the applicable legislation. In addition, we take all reasonable actions to ensure that no incompatible, outdated, or inaccurate personal data are stored in the register considering the purpose of the processing. We correct or erase such data without delay.
