PURPOSES FOR WHICH AZELIS USES YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Azelis processes your personal data to perform statistical analyses so that we may improve our Website, advertisement, products and services or to develop new products and services.
Azelis may also process your personal data for the preservation of the legitimate interests of Azelis, its affiliates and partners or a third party if your registration with or use of the Website can be considered (a) a violation of this Cookie Statement or the intellectual property rights or any other right of a third party, (b) a threat to the security or integrity of any of the Website or to Azelis or to any of its affiliates’ or its subcontractors’ underlying systems due to viruses, Trojan horses, spyware, malware or any other form of malicious code, or (c) in any way hateful, obscene, discriminating, racist slanderous, spiteful, hurtful or in some other way inappropriate or illegal.
Your personal data may be transferred to the police or the judicial authorities as evidence or if there are justified suspicions of an unlawful act or crime committed by you through your use of any of the Website.
LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
The processing of your personal data for the purposes outlined in Article 3 above is based on your consent or a legal obligation that Azelis must comply with.
In some cases, the processing of your personal data may be necessary for purposes of our legitimate interests, such as:
- Continuous improvements of the Azelis Website, social media channels, products and services to ensure that you have the best experience possible;
- Keeping our Website, social media channels, products and services safe from misuse and illegal activity;
- Marketing and promotion of our products, services, brands and overall successful commercialisation of our products and services.
TO WHOM AZELIS SENDS YOUR DATA
Azelis relies on third-party processors to provide you our Website and process your personal data on our behalf. These third-party processors are only allowed to process your personal data on behalf of Azelis upon explicit written instruction of Azelis.
Azelis warrants that all third-party processors are selected with due care and are obliged to observe the safety and integrity of your personal data.
Azelis does not send your personal data in an identifiable manner to any third party without your explicit permission to do so. However, Azelis may send anonymised data to other organisations that may use those data for improving products and services as well as to tailor the marketing, displaying and selling of those goods and services.
LOCATION AND TRANSFER
Azelis processes your personal data within the European Economic Area (EEA). However, in order to process your personal data for the purposes outlined in Article 3 above, we may also transfer your personal data to other entities within the Azelis Group or to third parties who process on our behalf outside the EEA. Each entity outside the EEA that processes your personal data will be bound to observe adequate safeguards with regard to the processing of your personal data. Such safeguards will be the consequence of:
- The recipient country having legislation in place which may be considered equivalent to the protection offered within the EEA; or
- A contractual arrangement between Azelis and that entity. All Azelis entities are parties to a contractual agreement based on the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (controller-to-controller) (Commission Decision C(2004)5721).
Azelis may transfer anonymised and/or aggregated data to organisations outside the EEA. Should such transfer take place, Azelis will ensure that there are safeguards in place to ensure the safety and integrity of your data and all rights with respect to your personal data you might enjoy under applicable mandatory law.
Azelis does its utmost best to process only those personal data which are necessary to achieve the purposes listed under Article 3 above.
Your personal data is only processed for as long as needed to achieve the purposes listed under Article 3 above or up until such time where you withdraw your consent for processing them. Your withdrawal of consent may imply that you can no longer use the whole or part of our Website. Azelis will de-identify your personal data when they are no longer necessary for the purposes outlined in Article 3 above, unless there is:
- An overriding interest of Azelis, or any other third party, in keeping our personal data identifiable;
- A legal or regulatory obligation or a judicial or administrative order that prevents Azelis from de-identifying them.
Azelis will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to keep your personal data safe from unauthorised access or theft as well as accidental loss, tampering or destruction. Access by personnel of Azelis or its third party processors will only be on a need-to-know basis and be subject to strict confidentiality obligations. You understand, however, that safety and security are best-efforts obligations which can never be guaranteed.
You have the right to request access to all personal data processed by Azelis pertaining to you. Azelis reserves the right to charge an administrative fee for multiple subsequent requests for access that are clearly submitted for causing nuisance or harm to Azelis. Each request will specify for which processing activity you wish to exercise your right to access and will specify to which data categories you wish to gain access to.
You have the right to ask that any personal data pertaining to you that are inaccurate, are corrected free of charge. If you submit a request for correction, your request needs to be accompanied of proof of the flawed nature of the data for which correction is asked.
You have the right to withdraw your earlier given consent for processing of your personal data.
You have the right to request that personal data pertaining to you be deleted if this data is no longer required in the light of the purposes outlined in Article 3 above or if you withdraw your consent for processing them. However, you need to keep in mind that a request for deletion will be evaluated by Azelis against:
- Overriding interests of Azelis or any other third party;
- Legal or regulatory obligations or administrative or judicial orders which may contradict such deletion.
Instead of deletion you can also ask that Azelis limits the processing of your personal data if (a) you contest the accuracy of the data, (b) the processing is illegitimate, or (c) the data is no longer needed for the purposes listed under Article 3 above.
You have the right to oppose the processing of personal data if you are able to prove that there are serious and justified reasons connected with this particular circumstances that warrant such opposition. However, if the intended processing qualifies as direct marketing, you have the right to oppose such processing free of charge and without justification.
You have the right to receive from us in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format all personal data you have provided to us.
If you wish to submit a request to exercise one or more of the rights listed above, you can send an e-mail to the Azelis Group’s general privacy e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. A request to exercise a right will not be construed as consent with the processing of your personal data beyond what is required for handling your request. Such request should clearly state which right you wish to exercise and the reasons for it if such is required. It should also be dated and signed, and accompanied by a digitally scanned copy of your valid identity card proving your identity. If you use the contact form, Azelis may ask you for your signed confirmation and proof of identity.
Azelis will promptly inform you of having received this request. If the request proves valid, Azelis shall honour it as soon as reasonably possible and at the latest thirty (30) days after having received the request.
