What are the purposes of processing personal data? 

Wirepas may process personal data for following purposes:

For how long does Wirepas process personal data? 
Your data is stored for the duration of your use of the services provided by Wirepas and as long as your account is valid, and thereafter the applicable period for limitation of legal claims, and any additional periods required or permitted under applicable law, such as license management purposes. We take every reasonable step to ensure that your personal data is only processed for the minimum period necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. 

What are the sources of personal data? 
Personal data is primarily collected directly from the data subject when the data subject and Wirepas are in contact with each other or during the course of Wirepas’ business activities. Subject to the limitations of the applicable law, personal data can be supplemented from other registers of Wirepas as well as from other public sources of information (such as trade registers, corporate websites and social media) or private sources of information (such as commercial databases) and from partners of Wirepas. 

Who are the recipients of personal data?
Wirepas does not sell personal data to third parties. On behalf of Wirepas, personal data may be processed by trusted service providers with whom Wirepas has made appropriate agreements to ensure compliance with applicable data protection legislation. Such service providers include, for example, IT service providers, marketing service providers, and providers of legal services. Additionally, personal data may be disclosed in connection with a corporate arrangement or when a service provided by Wirepas is transferred to a third party; to authorities and courts upon their order; and for the collection of payments to debt collection service providers. Also, Wirepas may for its own business purposes and subject to the limitations of the applicable law, transfer such personal data to third parties to the extent such transfers are reasonably necessary for the business purposes of Wirepas. As an example, Wirepas may organize a customer or training event together with a co-operation partner and based on legitimate interests exchange personal data for the purpose of managing attendee contact information. Such a co-operation partner is responsible for processing of personal data for its own part. 

Does Wirepas transfer personal data to third countries? 
Given the nature of Wirepas’s business, processing information for the above purposes may involve a cross-border transfer of the information provided to Wirepas. Any cross-border transfer of the information including any transfers outside the EU/EEA will be carried out in strict compliance with the applicable law to ensure protection of your privacy.
