- for legitimate business interests as explained in our services;
- to perform and provide a service contract;
- for identification purposes where this is required by law;
- to comply with legal and regulatory obligations, such as keeping financial records;

We will keep your personal data as long as required for our business purposes or until you let us know that you no longer wish that your personal data is being kept by us, which you can do at any time. If this is the case, then please send an email to email@example.com, together with a scan of your legitimate identity card.
Who we share your personal data with
The personal data that you provide to us to perform or to support a contract, or personal data obtained through branding campaigns, can be shared with and processed by any of our business partners or associated suppliers if required to perform or support our services, including the use of that personal data to manage, offer or improve our services.
We can also have certain trusted third parties who can use or with whom we can share your personal data with, if these entities are within the legal scope of contractual agreements and arrangements, such as:
- our professional advisers, external auditors, accountants or legal authorities;
- IT and marketing providers to InOpSys or its business partners;
- suppliers or subcontractors to whom we can eventually outsource services;
- legal or regulatory requirements to disclose your information to comply with these requirements with your prior consent to do so unless we are legally restricted from doing so;
- third parties involved in hosting or organizing events.
Transfer of personal data due to re-organization of InOpSys
In case we would have a future transfer of shares, or re-organization of InOpSys, it is very likely that we will have to transfer your personal data to the new InOpSys entities or to third parties through which our business will be carried out after the relevant transfer, sale or re-organization of InOpSys.
Social Media Policy
We do not disclose, rent or sell personal data to any third party for commercial purposes outside the scope of our company objectives or business purposes without prior consent.
How we protect your personal data
We protect your personal data from use, unauthorized access, disclosure, hacking, modification or destruction in conformity with applicable international data protection laws.
Transferring personal information abroad and third-party service providers
It can occur that the level of information protection in countries outside the EU is less than that offered within the EU. If this is indeed so, we will implement appropriate measures to ensure that your personal data remains protected and secure in accordance with applicable data protection laws. EU standard contractual clauses apply for all InOpSys entities or their business partners.
Where our third-party service providers process personal data outside the EU (and also within the EU) when providing services to us, our data processing agreement with them will include the purpose and legal ground to use or share such personal data within the scope of our contractual business relationship with these third-party service providers.
Your rights regarding your personal data
You may always request details of the data we hold about you and how we process it. You are entitled to have your personal data modified or deleted, to restrict our processing of that data, or to prevent unauthorized transfers of your personal data to third parties, where permitted or not otherwise restricted by law.
You have the right to file a complaint about our processing of your personal data with a supervisory authority for data protection if we are unable to meet the legally required protection requirements of your personal data, despite our efforts and measures to do so.
If you do not want your personal data to be processed, or if you have provided your consent to processing and you later choose to withdraw it, we will respect that to meet our legal obligations.
If you object or withdraw your previously given consent, this could mean that we are unable to perform the actions necessary to achieve the purposes set out above to use your personal data to provide, support or supply our services.
Please note that even after your objection or withdrawal of your previous consent we may be able to continue to process your personal data to the extent reasonably required or otherwise permitted by law, in particular in connection with exercising and defending our legal rights or meeting our legal, financial and regulatory obligations.
We want to keep your personal data accurate and up to date, so please inform us of any changes to your personal data by emailing InOpSys with your updated personal data or any requests to change these data. This email can be send to firstname.lastname@example.org, including a scan of your legitimate identity card.
