3 Do we share personal data with other companies?

Nordic Waterproofing uses various database or software suppliers of which the most important operators regarding the personal data of the parties visiting the website have been indicated in section 2. In order to carefully carry out any customer satisfaction surveys or other processes that require external support, we always select a reliable service provider that complies with the requirements of the applicable data protection legislation and our company’s data protection policy, with whom we draw up appropriate personal data processing agreements that adequately take into account the service provider’s confidentiality obligations and the necessary, appropriate and up-to-date technical and organisational measures to protect the data. This is how we can ensure the safety and confidentiality of your personal data when processing it.

4 Transferring personal data outside the EU/EEA area

In some situations, Nordic Waterproofing may transfer your personal data outside the EU or EEA area. Such a transfer is always carried out securely and according to legislation. Nordic Waterproofing ensures that necessary measures are taken in order to prevent your personal data from being transferred to an actor outside the EU or EEA area that does not meet the statutory requirements for personal data processing. Transfers require the Data Privacy Framework arrangement, for example, or the European Commission’s approval of the safety of the country in question with regard to the processing of personal data, or that the agreement on the transfer of personal data has been concluded using standard clauses approved by the European Commission.

5 Your rights

We can only process personal data that is accurate, appropriate and necessary for the purposes of use that the data is being collected for. You have the right to control the processing of your data. Nordic Waterproofing is responsible for ensuring that your personal data is processed in accordance with legislation.

Either upon your request or its own initiative, Nordic Waterproofing shall correct, remove or complement data that has been found erroneous or unnecessary.

You have various legal rights to your personal data. You have the right to:

In this case, we will act in accordance with your request as regards the data that can be removed, and if we continue processing the rest of your data, we will inform you of the legal basis for and the purpose of processing the data.

4 Request that the processing of your personal data is restricted:

    • You have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data is restricted. You can require restriction if, for example, you consider your personal data to be imprecise and you have demanded that the information be corrected as set out above. While the veracity of your personal data is being investigated, the processing of the data is restricted.
