The VALE cares about your privacy and about protecting the Personal Data handled by us. All Personal Data is Processed in accordance with Applicable Law. In this policy, we describe how and for what purposes we use your personal information as well as the legal basis and measures we take to protect Personal Data. We also provide information on how you exercise your rights linked to our use of your Personal Data.
“Applicable Law” refers to the legislation applicable to the processing of Personal Data, including the GDPR, supplementary national legislation, as well as practices, guidelines and recommendations issued by a national or EU supervisory authority.
“Controller” is the company/organisation that decides for what purposes and in what way personal data is to be processed and is responsible for the Processing of Personal Data in accordance with Applicable Law.
“Data Subject” is the living, natural person whose Personal Data is being processed.
“Personal Data” is all information relating, directly or indirectly, to an identifiable natural person.
“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed on Personal data, e.g. storage, modification, reading, handover and similar.
“Processor” is the company/organisation that processes personal data on behalf of the Controller and can therefore only process the Personal Data according to the instructions of the Controller and the Applicable Law.
We have a responsibility to describe and demonstrate how we fulfill the requirements that are imposed on us when we process your Personal Data. This section aims to describe:
Consent – The VALE may process personal data if the data subject has given explicit consent in that specific data being processed for a specific purpose. Consent must be freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous, and can be withdrawn at any time.
Legitimate interest – The VALE may process personal data if we have assessed that a legitimate interest overrides the interest of fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, and if the processing is necessary for the purpose in question.
You are the one in control of your Personal data, and we strive to ensure that you can exercise your rights as efficiently and smoothly as possible.
Access – You always have the right to receive information about the Processing of data that concerns you. We only provide information after having verified your identity to ensure that it is indeed you that are requesting the information.
Rectification – If you find that the Personal Data we process about you is incorrect, let us know, and we will fix it!
Erasure – Do you want us to completely forget about you? You have the right to be forgotten and request deletion of your Personal Data when the Processing is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. If we are required to retain your information under applicable law or a contract that we have entered with you, we will ensure that it is processed only for the specific purpose set forth in such applicable law or contract. We will thereafter erase the information as soon as possible.
Objections – Do you disagree with our assessment that a legitimate interest for Processing your Personal Data overrides your interest in protecting your privacy? Don’t worry – in such cases, we will review our legitimate interest assessment. Of course, we add your objection to the balance and make a new assessment to see if we can still justify our Processing of your Personal Data.
Withdraw consent – If you have given consent to one or several specific processing(s) of your Personal Data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and thus ask us to terminate the Processing immediately. Please note that you can only withdraw your consent for future processing of Personal Data and not for Processing that has already taken place.
