5. The data subject’s rights

The data subject has the following rights, and requests for their use should be sent to [email protected]  

Right to access data

The data subject may check the data we have recorded.

The data subject may request the rectification of inaccurate or incomplete personal data.

The data subject has the right to demand us to restrict the processing of controversial data until the matter is solved.

Cookies and forms of data controller’s website, Google Analytics and Leadfeeder.

7. Regular disclosure of data

We use third party services to process and store information that may contain personal information. However, third parties are purely processors of personal data who have the right to process such data only to the extent required by the agreed services.

8. Duration of processing

We retain personal data no longer than necessary for the described purposes in this notice and/or as required or permitted under applicable laws, to the extent technically possible.

9. Personal data processors

The controller and its employees process personal data. We may also outsource the processing of personal data partly to a third party, in which case we will guarantee with contractual arrangements that personal data is processed in compliance with valid data protection legislation and otherwise appropriately.

10. Transferring data outside the EU

Principally personal data is not transferred outside the EU or the EEA.

If personal data is transferred outside the EU and the EEA, we will safeguard the sufficient level of personal data protection by e.g. agreeing on matters related to the confidentiality and processing of personal data in compliance with legislation.
