We also collect information about your website usage by using cookies. You will find additional information on this subject in the Cookies section of this privacy statement.

In addition, we collect personal data (e.g., names, addresses, telephone numbers, or e-mail addresses) in connection with the operation of our websites only when you have voluntarily provided such data to us (e.g., through registration, contact inquiries, subscriptions, etc.).

Your rights

 

We seek to keep your personal data accurate, complete, and up to date. You have the right to obtain information on the personal data concerning you and ask us what personal data we have on you.

You have the right to have any incorrect, incomplete or otherwise inaccurate personal data erased, corrected or blocked.

Transfer of personal data

 

Etteplan is an international organization whose business operations, IT systems and administrative processes transcend national borders. Etteplan may use resources and servers that are located outside the country in which you are located or otherwise give your personal data to Etteplan. Therefore your personal data may be transferred across international borders outside the country where you use our services, including to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) that do not have laws providing specific protection for personal data or that have different legal rules on data protection, for example, the United States of America. In such cases we ensure that there is a legal basis (e.g., communications and marketing) for such a transfer and that adequate protection for your personal data is provided as required by applicable law, for example, by using standard agreements approved by relevant authorities (where necessary) and by requiring the use of other appropriate technical and organizational information security measures.

Etteplan may, in connection with the communications and marketing processes, transfer your personal data to external service providers (e.g., sub-consultants, IT/information security consultants and providers of analytics services). Etteplan will resort to the appropriate measures as required by law to protect your personal data in such situations.

Your personal data may be disclosed or access to it can be granted as required under binding legislation. In such situations, your personal data may be disclosed or access to it may be granted, e.g., to law enforcement authorities in the countries in which Etteplan or its subcontractors or representatives operate, and in countries to which your personal data has been transferred in accordance with this privacy statement.
