THE PURPOSE AND BASIS FOR HANDLING PERSONAL DATA

Purposes

Tapaus handles personal data for the following purposes:

To provide services

We handle personal data primarily to provide services to our customers and to engage in, maintain and develop our business. Personal data may be used to fulfill our contractual obligations to our customers. When a customer contacts our customer service, we use the information provided to answer questions and resolve any problems he or she may have.


Customer communication and marketing

We may handle personal data in order to contact customers in matters related to our services or to inform them of changes to our services, as well as to process and collect customer feedback and market our services.


Visitor analytics and trend identification

We may handle data related to how our services are used in order to improve the quality of our services. We may, for example, analyze various trends and developments in the use of our services. In cases like this, we use pseudonyms or anonymous information in order to avoid identification.

Legal grounds for handling personal data

We handle personal data based on our legal right to conduct, maintain and develop our business, and to establish and maintain customer relationships. When we handle your personal data in conjunction with our legitimate business interests, we always weigh our own interests against your right to privacy.

We also handle personal data in order to fulfill our statutory obligations as documented by the Accounting Act.

In certain cases, we may request consent when handling personal data. In these cases, consent may be withdrawn at any time.

HOW LONG WE HOLD ON TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We will only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purposes outlined above, or for as long as required by law.

THE INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA

As a general rule, Tapaus will only keep your personal data within the European Economic Area.

However, the service providers we use operate in a number of geographical regions, which means that we or our service providers may transfer or access your personal data outside the European Economic Area or your country of residence.

If this happens, we will ensure that your personal data is sufficiently protected in the geographical areas in which it is handled. We will also provide adequate protection for the transfer of personal data to non-EEA countries through standard contract clauses with our service providers that have been approved by the European Commission, or by any other arrangements approved by the EU Commission, such as the Privacy Shield program.

THIRD PARTIES THAT MAY RECEIVE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We will not disclose your personal information to parties outside the Tapaus organization, with the following exceptions:

When sharing is necessary in accordance with the uses set out in this Privacy Policy

In so far as third parties require access to personal data to provide their services, Tapaus has taken appropriate contractual and organizational measures to ensure that your personal data is handled solely in accordance with the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and all applicable laws and regulations.

For legal reasons

We may transfer your personal data to third parties outside the Tapaus organization if access to and use of such data is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with any applicable laws, regulations, and / or court decisions; (ii) detecting, preventing and handling cases of fraud, a security issue, or technical problem; and / or (iii) to protect Tapaus’s or our customers’ interests or property, to secure or safeguard the public interest in accordance with the law. If possible, we will notify customers of this type of transfer or handling of their personal data.

To authorized service providers

We may transfer your personal data to authorized service providers (including our subcontractors who provide data storage, sales, marketing, and customer support services). In accordance with the commitments contained in our agreements with our service providers, they agree to fully comply with the privacy and security standards set forth in this Privacy Policy. Please note that when you provide your personal data directly to a third party, for example, through a link on our site, it will likely be handled in accordance with their own documentation and standards.

With your explicit consent

We may transfer personal data to third parties outside of our organization for reasons other than those mentioned above with a customer’s explicit consent. Please note that you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

For other legitimate reasons

If Tapaus is party to a merger, business deal or other acquisition, we may transfer your personal information to a third party or third parties involved in the transaction. In cases like this we will always ensure that your personal data remains confidential. If this happens, we will swiftly inform a customer if their personal data has been transferred or if their personal data becomes subject to a different Privacy Policy.
