As a data controller, we need to collect and process personal data in order to provide all of our stakeholders with the best possible content. In particular, we process contact information of representatives of our corporate customers and of network members who use our blog platform. We do the same with regard to potential customers. Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual, such as a name, email address and photograph.

Protection of Privacy
Data submitted by persons visiting our website/ordering newsletters/signing up for events is considered confidential and is used by Digitalist Group solely for marketing purposes, website visitor tracking to improve our website, and to enhance the services we provide for our customers.
Network members themselves decide what data they want to publish on their profile. Each person can edit their own profile, or delete it if they so wish, by logging into the website. Digitalist Group can also delete the profile. In such a case, please email a written request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Digitalist Group will respect your privacy under all circumstances. Your name, address, email address, telephone number and other personal data will be processed in the manner required to ensure that your privacy is protected.

Purpose of using personal data and grounds for processing it
Digitalist Group uses the aforementioned personal data for marketing and communications purposes and the development of its website. We target our marketing at persons in the register in accordance with their profile, in order to provide everyone with interesting and relevant information on our services and industry. We also use the data gathered for the continuous development of our website, so as to better meet the information needs of our users. Data gathered for sales support purposes in relation to a certain customer account is used for the customer relationship management of the account.
Digitalist Group processes the personal data described in this privacy notice in pursuit of its legitimate interests, which include customer communications and direct marketing to the contact persons of potential corporate customers. In some cases, the processing of personal data may also be consent-based, in which case we will ask you separately for your consent.
Processing, handover and transfer of data outside the European Economic Area
In general, data in our marketing and customer register is processed by Digitalist Group employees for who the processing of such data is a key element of the duties. Throughout our operations, we ensure that personal data is handled confidentially, in compliance with the law and solely on our own behalf.
We do not disclose data to third parties, but may share it with other companies within our group where necessary. In addition, data may be disclosed if so required under law, by a court of law, or by the competent authorities. We may also hand over personal data that is in our possession if we are involved in a company or business acquisition.
As a rule, we do not transfer personal data outside the EU or EEA except for use by one of our foreign subsidiaries. Some of our service providers may be located outside the EU, because we primarily store and process data in digital format, particularly via cloud-based services. Service providers of this kind include Pardot and Salesforce. In such cases, Digitalist Group ensures that data transfers involve sufficient data security as required by law.
Data security, protection and storage
The personal data held by Digitalist Group is duly protected from unauthorised access and accidental or unlawful erasure, alteration, handover, transfer, or unlawful processing in any other manner. Only employees who need to process such data for work-related reasons are entitled to use systems containing the data. Personal data is protected by a password and firewall in a secure cloud service/and database.
Personal data is stored only as long as required for the purpose in question, or for as long as the related contract or legislation requires. The storage time of data can vary, depending on the purpose for which it is used, the legal grounds for its processing, and the circumstances. Furthermore, personal data can be erased if the data subject withdraws his or her consent, or requests that it be erased (unless Digitalist Group has other legal grounds for processing the data), or if the contractual relationship is terminated, or the data becomes obsolete or incorrect. We attempt to update or erase superfluous, incorrect or obsolete data at least once a year.
