3. Sharing of personal data

Personal data will only be shared with other third parties when it is necessary to provide our services. We occasionally use third parties to work on our behalf as data processors, and we will share only the necessary information in these circumstances in accordance with written data processing agreements entered into with each such party. We will not disclose your data to any third parties for the purpose of marketing or such third parties’ own purposes.

4. Transfer of personal data

Personal data may be transferred outside the EEA to our service providers.

For transfers to other entities in the Cegal group, we have adopted the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) incorporated in the GDPR for the purpose of authorizing global transfers. This allows us to transfer personal data outside of the EEA, based on our internal practices, while protecting the privacy of data subject in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR.

Other transfers of personal data outside EEA are either made to a country that is deemed to provide a sufficient level of privacy protection by the European Commission or by using a valid transfer basis such as the EU Standard Contractual Clauses. If necessary, we will implement appropriate safeguards to ensure that the personal data has the same level of protection as in the EEA.

5. Security of the processing

Securing the integrity and confidentiality of personal data is important to Cegal. All non-personal and personal data is stored on secure servers by Cegal and HubSpot. We have taken adequate technical, physical and administrative measures to keep your personal data safe and to secure it against accidental loss, unauthorized access or disclosure, misuse or alteration by third parties, and other unlawful forms of processing and alteration or access, such as by encryption, access controls and firewalls.

In case of any data breaches, we will notify the Data Protection Authority and you to the extent required under the GDPR.

6. Your rights

Under applicable data protection laws, you have numerous rights related to the personal data. You have the right to:

  • Access the processed personal data;
  • require rectification of inaccurate personal data;
  • obtain the erasure of personal data (however, please note that certain personal data is strictly necessary in order to achieve the purposes defined in this Privacy Policy and may also be required to be retained by applicable laws, thus, you may not delete such personal data);

  • ask Cegal to restrict processing personal data for a period if data is inaccurate or there is a dispute about whether or not your interests override Cegal's legitimate grounds for processing data; and
  • the right to withdraw any consent you have given.

You may exercise these rights by sending a written request to dpo@cegal.com.
