Part 1 – General privacy principles
Personal data and controller of personal data
Personal data comprises all information that directly or indirectly can be referred to a natural person who is alive, e.g. name, postal address, e-mail address and phone number. A controller of personal data is the natural or legal person who processes personal data and who decides why and how such data shall be processed.
Collection of personal data via our website contact card
Personal data that you submit to Tradedoubler on our contact card on our websites for which Tradedoubler is controller may be provided by you to us e.g. in the following situations:
- As part of our sales efforts, we may collect and store data through online forms for contact purposes;
- If you are a prospect Client, you may provide us with personal data through this Site when applying to join our network;
Use of personal data
Personal data provided to Tradedoubler may be used for the following purpose: direct marketing. The legal ground for Tradedoubler to process and store your personal data is legitimate interest. The personal data is stored as long as the data subject is considered to be a prospect and deleted when not needed anymore. The personal data provided by you on our contact card is currently stored in the UK.
Disclosure and transfer of personal data
Personal data may be transferred to other companies within the Tradedoubler group of companies. Tradedoubler may as a consequence of service agreements with third parties, also transfer personal data to such third parties who process personal data on behalf of Tradedoubler. Such service agreements including data processing agreements shall contain obligations for third parties to process data only in accordance with applicable data protection laws and to take appropriate measures to secure that the processing of the personal data is secure.
For any of the purposes described herein, personal data may be transferred to Tradedoubler’s business partners within or outside the EU/EEA or in a third country declared as offering an adequate level of 3 protection through a European Commission decision (‘Adequacy Decision’), meaning that data can be transferred with another company in that third country without the data exporter being required to provide further safeguards or being subject to additional conditions. In other words, the transfers to an ‘adequate’ third country will be comparable to a transmission of data within the EU, like the UK for example. Should any of the recipients reside in a country without adequate legal protection for personal data, Tradedoubler will make sure the recipient adopt appropriate safeguards and enter contractual arrangements with the recipient of the personal data, using, for example, the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission.
Right to information and rectification of personal data
To the extent required by law, we will inform you about Tradedoubler’s processing of your personal data in connection with the initial collection or registration of your personal data.
Destruction of personal data
Any personal data that we hold on you is only stored as long as it is required for us to keep them in order to fulfill the purposes for which they were collected.
Tradedoubler is dedicated to maintain the security of personal data and preventing unauthorized access through the implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures, as far as is reasonably possible. Such security measures also include that personal data may be accessed only by a limited number of persons within Tradedoubler.
Our employees are made aware of and must comply with Tradedoubler’s security standards. When we occasionally use third-party contractors to perform tasks that might otherwise be performed by our employees, these contractors are contractually bound to similar restrictions as our employees.
