Regular Sources of Data    

Data is collected regularly about the data subject by telephone, email, on the internet, in meetings, and in conjunction with concluding agreements and contractual relations. Personal data can also be collected and updated from public and private registers, contact information providers and other similar trustworthy parties.

Regular Disclosure and Transfer of Data, and Data Transfer Outside the EU or EEA

The controller does not regularly disclose the registered data to third parties.

The controller uses external subcontractors to handle the tasks described in this policy, and in such cases, the service providers act on behalf of the controller. Subcontractors, i.e. recipients of personal data, include e.g. marketing and communication agencies and event organizers. The controller is responsible for the activities of its subcontractors as for the controller’s own activities. The controller will ensure, by means of data processing agreements with subcontractors, that these parties are committed to protecting the personal data of the data subject in the manner stated in this document. In addition, the controller may disclose contact details for marketing purposes to its subcontractors used within its business operations.

If some of the personal data contained in this policy will be processed outside the EU and the EEA, the data controller has ensured that its subcontractor is covered by the Privacy Shield data protection system or other similar arrangements (e.g. EU Commission Model Clauses).

Principles of Registry Protection and Data Storage Period       

The only persons who have access rights to the personal data system are those employees of the controller who have the right to process personal data contained in this register for the purposes of carrying out their work. Each user has their own username and password for the system. Data is collected in databases that are protected by firewalls, passwords, and other technical measures. Databases and backups are located in locked spaces, and only certain pre-designated persons can access them. Personal data is stored for as long as it is necessary for fulfilling the purpose of the personal data. The personal data of decision-makers will be stored permanently for direct marketing purposes within the limits of the law. The controller will regularly assess the need for the storage of personal data and will also take reasonable measures to ensure that incompatible, obsolete or inaccurate personal data on data subjects is not saved in the register.

The data subject has the right to deny the controller access to data about the subject for the purposes of direct advertising, market research, opinion polling or related profiling. Such a prohibition may be provided at any time to info(a)solaforce.com or, for example, by opting out of the mailing list in the manner instructed in the marketing messages themselves.

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, the data subject has the right to object or request restriction of processing of the subject’s data, and to file a complaint against the processing of their personal data to the relevant supervisory authority.
