We are committed to privacy and to transparency in our information practices. This privacy notice aims to inform you about how we collect, store, use and disclose personal information about you when you interact or use our Site.
In this privacy notice use of the term “personal information” includes other similar terms under applicable privacy laws, such as “personal data” and “personally identifiable information.” In general, personal information includes any information that identifies, relates to, describes, or is reasonably capable of being associated, linked, or linkable with a particular individual.
If we decide to make changes to this privacy notice, we will post the changes on this Site so that you will always know what personal information we collect and how we use it.
We may collect and process the following personal information about you:
For example, when using our software, registering to an event or webinar, contacting us as a prospective or existing customer, supplier, employee, other cooperation partner or stakeholder.
Certain types of personal information are more sensitive than others, such as information about health, race or ethnic origin, criminal offences, political opinions, biometric information, religion, or labor union membership.
We do not generally seek to collect sensitive personal information via this Site or otherwise and request that you do not send or share with us any sensitive personal information, except in special cases, such as providing dietary requirements due to religion and/or a medical condition, or if you provide accessibility requirements due to a medical condition as part of registration for an event.
Our Site may contain links to websites of third parties who are not affiliated to Peikko. If you access such third-party websites by clicking on such links, we are not responsible for the way in which such third parties process any of your personal information that they collect.
We will only use your personal information if we have a proper legal basis to do so. Most commonly, we will use your personal information to (i) provide and communicate with you about our products and services; (ii) provide our software solutions; (iii) process a job application; (iv) maintain and develop the Site and our products and services; (v) statistical and analytical purposes; (vi) marketing and communication purposes such as for example conducting marketing research, direct marketing, and automated marketing.
We do not provide personal information to third parties for their own marketing purposes.
Your personal information may be shared if we anonymize and/or aggregate it, as in these circumstances the information will cease to be personal information.
In addition, we might also need to share your personal information to comply with applicable laws, enforce contractual rights, and respond to requests from courts, law enforcement, or regulatory agencies and government authorities as long as the request is deemed lawful.
We maintain appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide, or that we collect via the Site against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use. We use SSL encryption on a number of our Sites from which we transfer certain personal information.
The data protection laws in your country may entitle you to specific rights and choices in relation to your personal information. In particular, and subject to legal requirements, you may be entitled to:
You may exercise these rights by contacting us. We will treat all such requests in accordance with applicable local law.
We may transfer personal information you provide, or we collect via the Site, for processing purposes to any other companies within the Peikko Group or to third parties who process data on our behalf under our instructions. Peikko Group companies and relevant data processors may operate globally across Europe, North America, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Africa and may also set up establishments in other regions. We therefore reserve the right to transfer and process personal data on a global and worldwide basis. Whenever your personal information is transferred internationally, we will take appropriate steps to ensure its security and confidentiality in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
We do not intend for our Site to be used by children. If you are a parent or guardian and believe we may have collected information about a child, please contact us as described in this privacy notice.
We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this privacy notice unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law or defined in an agreement. We may retain personal information for longer where required by our regulatory obligations, or where we believe it is necessary to establish, defend or protect our legal rights.
