Your consent as registered subject to the processing of personal data for one or more specific purposes. If we rely on your consent you may withdraw this at any time.
The processing is necessary to establish and fulfil our obligations under an agreement that you as the registered subject is party to.
The processing is necessary for fulfilling a legal obligation for which we are responsible, including establishing, exercising and defending legal claims.
The processing is necessary for purposes related to the legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party unless your interests as a registered subject or fundamental rights and liberties take precedence and require protection of the personal data, especially if the registered subject is a child (balancing of interests).
The processing is necessary to respond to your requests.
The processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of any person.
Any other legal basis permitted by local law.
4. What categories of personal data is collected?
Glamox may process different personal data for different business purposes and legitimate reasons depending upon you being e.g. a customer, supplier, business partner, or job applicant and how you interact with us.
We collect your data when you visit our websites, applications or social media channels, purchase and use our products, services, web-based tools, mobile applications, systems, subscribe to our newsletters, webinars, provide to us your goods or services, contact our customer support, join our business events, participate to our contests, promotions and surveys or otherwise interact with us.
If you visit our premises we may also record your personal data through video or other electronic, digital or wireless surveillance systems or devices (e.g. CCTV).
The purpose for which we may process your data is for establishing and following up on customer and/or supplier relations and conclusion and execution of any agreements, e.g. sale, purchase, customer support, and warranty follow-up. Assessment, screening and rescreening of potential customers, suppliers and other business partners through due diligence, direct marketing through electronic marketing and follow-up of prospects, customers and other stakeholders, secure our assets and interests through internal and external audits and investigations, assessments to verify conflict of interests, compliance with legal obligations and defense of legal claims.
5. How and why do we use personal data?
Registration and interaction on our website
When you register on our website using the various contact forms available personal data collected and stored are dependent upon the respective form used for the registration. By registering on our website, the IP address, date, and time of the registration are also stored.
When you subscribe to our newsletters the form used for this purpose determines what personal data we collect. In addition to name, we collect other contact details such as phone number, email address, employer etc. Glamox regularly informs its customers and business partners by newsletter about news, product offers and other company information. Where consent is required under the Marketing Control Act, you will have consented prior to marketing e-mails being sent. The consent may be withdrawn at any time. If we have an existing customer relationship with you, we may also use your personal data to provide communication and direct market our products and services. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by you at any time.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data in accordance with the above is either consent or our legitimate interest in processing the information due to our business needs as part of our operation, when providing information, support and service to you, and we believe these legitimate interest take precedence over your rights to data protection.
When you apply for a position within Glamox Group
Personal data is collected when you apply for a job in one of the Glamox companies. In the recruitment process, we may use a recruitment system and job application portal operated by an external service provider on our behalf, for processing and handling your job application.
The Glamox and service provider may collect your general identification and contact information, gender, nationality, information about your education, competencies and skills, career and work history, job certificates, work permit, public roles, interests, references and other relevant background information. In addition, job applicants often provide additional personal data they consider relevant for the assessment of the application, such as contact information, family relationships and interests. In interviews we ask questions to determine whether job applicants are suited to the position. In some instances, we may use tests or questionnaires for this purpose. If a decision is made to engage a job applicant, we are then able to request further information as well as documentation of information we have already received. Providing Glamox with this type of information is voluntary.
The processing of personal data is based on the balancing of interests. We need to utilise the information as a means of evaluating applications job applicants have submitted to us. This is a legitimate interest. It is not possible to assess an application without processing personal data. Processing is therefore necessary.
We may file job applicant data for six months, in case job applicants believe that their rights have been breached.
When we interact with suppliers and customers
We interact with existing and potential customers and suppliers to follow up on for example offers, orders, deliveries, further sales activities, manage and coordinate marketing activities and information about our products and services This is a legitimate interest. Contact is effective only by direct communication with individuals. Processing is therefore necessary. Processing occurs in respect of the contact person's employer who is an existing or potential customer of Glamox. In addition to the name, we treat contact details, such as phone number, email address and employer, all of which are primarily related to the contact person's employment and not to the contact person's private life. The scope of data processed is kept to a strict minimum. Data that is processed is related to the customer’s or supplier's business activities.
Personal data we process is accountable to the contact person. Where consent is required pursuant to the Marketing Control Act, the contact person will have consented prior to our sending marketing e-mails. Processing of such personal data is based on the balancing of interests We believe that the legitimate interest takes precedence over the contact person’s interests.
When you interact with Glamox on social media platforms
When we are involved in transactions, due diligence and investigations
We may also process personal data in relation to transactions and due diligence processes. Processing of such personal data is based on the balancing of interests. We believe that the legitimate interest takes precedence over the specific data subject interests. Glamox may also, when necessary, perform integrity due diligence investigations. In this respect information regarding potential business relations, their operations and business ethics are gathered and assessed. Personal data related to positions and roles, connections and relations to public authorities, political position, possible sanction listing, legal claims etc. will be collected. Processing of any personal data in this respect is based on our duty to comply with legal obligations and legitimate interests and also where applicable, defend or establish legal claims.
When you report a concern through our whistleblowing channel personal data may be processed.
When we protect our premises, equipment and personnel
In relation to various safety and security measures, personal data is processed in order to safeguard and protect people, premises, systems, technology and equipment. Such safety measures include camera surveillance (CCTV), access control, IT and IP logs and identity checks. In this respect we may collect and process personal data such as name and other contact data, identity information, employment data and role, CCTV images, date and time logs etc. in order to ensure compliance with legal and contractual obligations and to secure and/or protect personnel and visitors at our locations and secure property, technology and equipment. In addition to providing support and safeguard in critical situations. The legal basis for such processing is our legitimate interest in safeguarding employees, premises and business operations and applicable legal and contractual requirements. The legal basis may also be your consent which you may withdraw at any time.
6. To who and when do we share this information?
We will never sell, give away or redistribute personal data to third parties, nor do we share personal data with others except for in circumstances where such sharing is necessary as part of our regular business operations and to provide our services and support to you as described herein.
