Personal Data gathered by this website and why
We receive your personal data only if you agree to it – for example if you contact us via email or register to our website in order to receive some services. In some cases it is possible you have already given our company access to your data in the past. If you choose to register or log in to our company’s website through a third service’s registration which verifies your identity and connects your information from the social media platforms (e.g. LinkedIn, Google or Twitter) to our company, we then only collect the data you have consented to share with us through your agreement with the third party, such as your e-mail and name. As the information we gather could depend on the privacy settings of your agreement with the social media provider, you are kindly requested to review the aforementioned agreement as well.
By registering and/or submitting your personal information to our company’s website, you automatically agree to our use of these data according to this statement. Your personal data won’t be used for other purposes unless your either consent to it or it is permitted by the law and/or the professional standards. For example if you register on our website and give information about your preferences, we will use this information to customize your experience as a user. When you register through a third registration service it is possible that we still identify you as the same user even through different login points and still customize your experience. In case you send us your CV to apply for a job position in our company we will use the information you send us to see if you are sufficiently qualified for any of the positions available in our company.
In some cases when you register to receive some of our services it is possible we temporarily store your email address until we get a confirmation of the personal information you have submitted via email (the confirmation message will be sent to the email address you submitted when you registered on our website in order to complete the registration)
In general, our company gathers personal data which are necessary to meet your requests. For example if you are using our services we will use your personal data in order to deliver these services to you according to the terms of our agreement. In addition, the data that you provide are being used to protect our legal interests such as offering the best and more suitable content on our website, email and newsletter, improving and promoting our products and services as well as managing other legal issues like preventing fraud. Even when we use personal information for our legal interests, your rights and interests are still priority. Wherever additional information is required you will be informed accordingly.
