How do we share your information?

Please note that some of our sites, products and services include links to sites, products or services of third parties that have privacy practices different from ours. If you submit personal information to any of those sites or services, your information is governed by the privacy statements of those third parties. In addition, the collected personal data may (occasionally) be transferred to selected third parties, which may be located outside of the Economic European Area (“EEA”) in relation to the services provided to you by us or by our agents and distributors. By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EEA or one of our service providers is in a country outside of the EEA. These third parties will not use your personal information for any other purposes than what we have agreed with them. We request those third parties to implement adequate levels of protection in order to safeguard your personal information. We respect your personal information and therefore, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected if we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way.

In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition of another company, or sale of part or all of our assets, we may disclose your personal information to third parties and your personal data held may be among one of the assets transferred.

Except as set out in this privacy policy, we will not disclose any personally identifiable information without your permission unless we are legally entitled or required to do so (for example, if required to do so by legal process or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime), or if we believe that such action is necessary to protect and/or defend our rights, property or personal safety and those of our users/customers or other individuals.

 

 

Where is your data stored?

  • Customer data is securely stored SSL encrypted via our CRM partner SuperOffice AS protected by an ISO 27001 and ISO 27018 certified Information Management System (ISMS), within EU/ESS. All data between, to and from the CRM is encrypted.
