Processing Activity

If you consent to receive promotional emails from us, we will send emails to your email address from time to time to the extend allowed by your given consent. We will save your consent settings in connection with your email address, the time the consent was given and other information to be able to prove that you have given consent.

Purpose And Legal Basis

The purpose of this processing activity is to send you interesting promotional material.

The legal basis is Article 6 (1)(1)(a) GDPR. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. In case you withdraw your consent, we will still store some of your personal data in order to be able to prove that you had previously given consent. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR.

The data is deleted when storage is no longer required. We will continue to store some personal data to be able to prove that you had previously given consent until that is no longer necessary.
