PURPOSE OF DATA PROCESSING
We process your personal data for the purpose of (i) registering and granting you access to your Account and our Services; (ii) providing the Services requested by you; (ii) optimising and enhancing our Services provided to you; (iii) paying for Services (if applicable); (iv) protecting the legitimate interests of our assets or interests of our other customers; (v) evaluating job applications; (vi) analysing visits to our websites; and (vii) direct marketing (if you have presented your interest in further information via the “Have us contact you” or similar form – see further clause 6).
The personal data you provide us with is only processed and used in the manner adequate for the purpose for which it was collected. Alvolia does not combine personal data that was obtained for a variety of purposes. We will not store your personal data for longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it was provided or collected. We will only retain the personal data that serves a legitimate purpose (e.g. applicable legal regulations may require the retention of data, or some data may be necessary for the purposes of billing outstanding amounts).
We will neither collect an excessive amount of personal data nor data that is not relevant for the purposes for which the personal data is being collected.
YOUR CLIENTS’ DATA
By using our Services, you may be providing us with your clients’ personal data. You should therefore ensure that you have collected your clients’ respective consents and approval in order to process their data in accordance with applicable data protection law and the General Terms and Conditions. We shall be entitled to: obtain, collect, distribute, record, organise, adapt or alter, retrieve, consult, align, combine, transfer, use, store, block, destroy, and manage the cross-border flow of the personal data you provide us with.
We retain the identifiable data we collect directly for targeting purposes for 24 months, after which time we employ measures to de-identify the data by removing unique identifiers and truncating associated IP addresses.
Identifiable data collected for other purposes is held no longer than necessary for our business purposes or to meet legal requirements.

You agree that we may also use your electronic contact details, which may be derived from your past usage of Services, for marketing purposes, i.e. to keep you informed about our Services.

PERSONAL DATA SHARING
In line with the provisions of the General Terms and Conditions, we may also provide certain Services aimed at connecting our customers to services, such as e-mail, of other providers such as the providers of advertising platforms. By clicking the “I agree” button that completes the registration process and creates the Account for you or by submitting the respective Order Form to Alvolia, you provide us with the express consent to share your personal data with these third-party providers for the purpose of fulfilling the Agreement (typically, you as our client provide us with all data required for such connection). We may also provide the data to third parties such as (i) hosting providers; and/or (ii) advertising partners. Any such partners will be available on our websites (typically in our Guides), and such parties will then act as processors of your data. Subject to the previous sentence, your personal data shall not be shared or provided to any other third party without your consent except for the following cases: (i) where Alvolia is obliged to provide personal data by law or an order of public authority; or (ii) if personal data sharing is specifically allowed by applicable legal regulations.
If third-party providers are established outside of the EU/EEA, you agree that we may transfer your data to these third parties. In such cases, Alvolia shall ensure that it cooperates only with third-party providers that are located in countries that ensure adequate levels of protection based on the European Commission’s adequacy decision, or that Alvolia has entered into agreements with corresponding Model Contractual Clauses that ensure adequate safeguards with respect to the protection of the privacy and fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals.
We are committed to storing your data securely. Therefore, we have implemented adequate physical, technical and organisational measures and plans for protecting and securing data collected from you (which do not, however, deprive you of your duty to take proper steps to secure your data, particularly for the transmission of data to our Account). The aim is to eliminate unauthorised or unlawful processing of your personal data or the accidental, unauthorised or unlawful accessing, use, transferring, processing, copying, transmitting, alteration, loss or damage of your data. Despite all efforts to meet the rules set out in applicable legal regulations, it is not possible to ensure the security of your data if it is transferred or transmitted in an unsecured way. We will protect your data in the following ways:using cryptography, where necessary; using password or secured token protection, where necessary; and restricting access to your data (i.e. access to your personal data is granted only to those of our employees or contractors for whom the access is necessary).

However, where requests from you are manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive, we may either: (i) charge a reasonable fee, taking into account the administrative costs of taking the actions requested; or (ii) refuse to act on the request.
