3. What are the grounds for processing and what purposes do we process personal data for?

Processing of personal data described in this policy is necessary for maintaining the contractual relationship between Premico and the Data Subject. In this context, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is the contract between Premico and the Data Subject or, in the absence of such contract, legitimate interest of Premico. In addition, when We inform Data Subjects of our services, provide or maintain our services, request for feedback or provide marketing material related to our services and maintain client relationship, the processing of personal data is based on Premico’s legitimate interest or consent given by the Data Subject.

Processing of personal data in Premico’s operations is also based on Premico’s legal obligations such as accounting and tax related obligations as well as obligations related to legislation on prevention of money laundering and terrorism financing.

To the extent processing of Data Subject’s personal data is required by law or fulfilment of Premico’s contractual obligations, if the Data Subject does not provide the requested personal data Premico may not be able to provide its services to the Data Subject (or the Data Subject’s organisation ) in addition to possible other consequences caused to Premico or Data Subject (or the Data Subject’s organisation) due to non-compliance with contractual or legal obligations.

Collecting and updating data is performed manually or by automatic means.

6. Where do we disclose and transfer personal data and do we transfer data outside of the EU or EEA?

We use subcontractors to process personal data. For example, we have outsourced our IT management to a third-party service provider, and personal data is stored in the servers managed and secured by such service provider. Premico may also disclose the above-described personal data to the affiliates and associated companies belonging from time to time to the same group of companies with Premico as well as consultants, clients and other contracting parties of such group or associated companies where the disclosure is required by contractual obligations or other applicable grounds for processing of the personal data.

In addition, to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing or required by applicable legal obligations, personal data may be disclosed to financial institutions and tax or other public authorities for purposes related to exchange of tax information and prevention of money laundering and terrorism financing.

Personal data may be transferred outside of the EU and EEA if it is necessary for the purposes or technical implementation of the processing of personal data. Transfers of personal data to clients, suppliers and other third parties will be subject data processing agreements in accordance with the applicable law such as EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. Transfers of personal data outside of the EU and EEA require compliance with the applicable data protection law and appropriate safeguards such as standard contractual clauses based on the European Commission’s applicable decision.

Premico does not disclose personal data to other than the above-described recipients unless otherwise required by legislation.

7. How do we protect the data and how long do we store the data?

We have implemented and maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the personal data against accidental or unauthorized access, disclosure, destruction, loss, damage, manipulation and against other unlawful processing. Our data protection practices include physical measures, access management (e.g. user IDs, firewall, digital encryption technologies), logs, anti-virus software, prevention of DoS attacks and other necessary data security measures.

Personal data is processed confidentially in Premico’s operations. Access to personal data is limited to persons who need to access the personal data in order to carry out their work obligations.

We store personal data in an identifiable form only as long as is necessary for the applicable purpose of processing. When the personal data is no longer necessary for such purposes, we erase the data unless the applicable law requires us to store the data for a longer period (for e.g. accounting and reporting purposes) or unless storing the data is necessary for possible legal claims. Data related to identification of clients is stored for a period of at least five years from the end of the client relationship in accordance with the Act on Preventing Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing.

We assess the necessity of storing personal data on a regular basis considering the applicable law. In addition, we take reasonable measures to ensure that no incompatible, obsolete or incorrect personal data is stored considering the purposes of processing. We correct or erase such data without delay.
