Your personal data is processed by members of our company’s personnel as part of their work. 

In some cases, your personal data may be disclosed confidentially to our partners or our subcontractors who process personal data on the basis of a written commission agreement. 

Such cases include, for instance, data centre and cloud services intended for storing data, providers of the IT systems we use and external services acquired to support sales and marketing. 

Our subcontractors and partners process personal data as agreed, according to our written guidelines and only for agreed, legal purposes.

Data may be transferred in connection with system development, for example. 

Our partners and subcontractors may only process your personal data in order to manage tasks related to customer relationship management or maintenance carried out on our behalf. We always ensure that our partners do not process transferred personal data for any other purposes.
