The “chathead” through which we have communicated with you will remain open for around one month after we contacted you. Our lawful basis for contacting you and collecting such data is your consent.

Your rights to your personal data
You have the following rights with respect to your personal data:
– The right to request a copy of your personal data that the organisation holds about you.
– The right to request that the organisation corrects your personal data if inaccurate or out of date.
– The right to request that your personal data is deleted where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
– The right to withdraw any consent to personal data processing at any time. For example, your consent to receive e-marketing communications:
- Social Tech Projects ApS manages its email opt-ins on the basis that customers, potential customers and any third parties (individuals or other organisations) who request to receive promotional material from us have provided express consent in a freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous way, which is reinforced by a clear affirmative action. If you want to withdraw your consent to e-marketing, please make use of the link to manage your subscriptions included in our communication, this allows users to manage their email preferences (whether for example, in relation to product information, invitations, promotions, press releases and urgent messages) and includes an ‘unsubscribe link’.
- Please note that you may still receive system messages and administrative communications from us, such as order confirmations, system messages and notifications about your account activities.
– The right to request that the organisation provides you with your personal data and, if possible, to pass on this information directly (in a portable format) to another data controller when the processing is based on consent or contract.
– The right to request a restriction on further data processing. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.
- Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.
- Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
- You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
– The right to object to the processing of personal data, in cases where our data processing has been based on a legitimate interest, and/or where our processing is for direct marketing purposes.
Any request or query about your privacy rights should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

Use of subcontractors (processors and sub-processors)
We may use subcontractors to process personal data on your behalf, (e.g. for platform management and hosting services we provide) we are responsible for making sure they commit themselves to adhere to applicable data protection legislation by entering into data processing agreements with them.
If a new subcontractor is engaged or there is a change of subcontractor in relation to our products or services, we will notify you in line with the requirements of our data processing obligations.
We do not currently transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
If in the future we were to transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we would ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission or any body governing data protection within Europe.
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission or any body governing data protection within Europe.
- Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield (or any alternative scheme permitting transfers of personal data from Europe to the US) which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
By law we have to keep basic information about our customers for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes. If you are employed by one of our customers, we may keep your personal data for the duration of our time providing services to your employer organisation, or longer, if necessary.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see your legal rights below for further information.
Where we collect your data through one of our products, platforms or via a third-party platform, we will anonymise any data collected that we hold about you. Any data we receive from third parties is deleted around 2 months after the initial engagement (although note that we will retain anonymised, aggregated data derived from the engagement).
