The way we use personal data
We process personal data for three main purposes.
1. Providing the service
In order to communicate with the User and maintain a good customer relationship, we store their contact details and record the subjects of communications with them to allow us to provide the User with the service.

We may use personal data to improve the quality of our service, solve any problems discovered with the service and develop the features of the service to better serve the User. This data processing is based on our genuine desire to improve our service and its features and contents. We may also produce anonymous statistics for research purposes, including Business Intelligence.
3. Marketing and communications
We may use personal data to send the User important information about the service. Personal data may also be used for the purposes of advertising, marketing, direct marketing and personalised marketing targeted at the User. We may create general profiles about Users in order to offer better content and advertisements. This is based on our genuine desire to keep Users up to date about our service and to market new useful products and services to our Users. The User has the right to deny direct marketing at any time.
Disclosing personal data
We do not disclose personal data to third parties, except:
- IP addresses and marketing cookies, which are not combined with other personal data;
- when service providers we trust take care of services on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions. However, we carefully monitor the use of the User’s personal data and take responsibility for these in all situations;
- if we are part of a merger, corporate acquisition, or the sale of a business activity or part of a business activity;
- when we believe in good faith that disclosing the data is necessary to protect our rights, protect the User’s or others’ security, investigate a fraud, or fulfil the requirements of state authorities.
We do not sell Users’ personal data to third parties.
Transfers of personal data outside the EU/EEA
As a rule, we do not transfer Users’ personal data outside the EU/EEA. However, some of the providers of statistical and marketing services we use operate in the United States. When using the services of these service providers, we may have to transfer some of our Users’ data to the United States, such as IP addresses into statistical services, or email, company and name data into an email marketing system or sales system. In such situations, our service providers have undertaken to provide data protection that meets the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation in Europe and to comply with the Privacy Shield framework.
Storing personal data
We strive to ensure that the personal data in our possession is correct and up to date by erasing unnecessary data and updating outdated data.
