We are entitled to use and process your personal data for these purposes by virtue of the performance of a contractual relationship or the legitimate interest of Metriful or third party. If explicitly provided by you, consent can also be a legal basis for Metriful to process or use your personal data. This consent can be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future.
If the legal ground for processing your personal data is no longer available, Metriful may only further process your personal data where there is another legal ground for the processing.
Does Metriful share your personal data with a third party or country?
If legally permitted to do so, Metriful may transfer personal data to courts, law enforcement authorities, regulators or attorneys if necessary to comply with the law or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
In connection with the operation of our websites and the services provided through our websites, Metriful works with service providers (so-called data processors), such as hosting or IT maintenance, which only act upon instructions of Metriful and are contractually bound to act in compliance with applicable data protection law and to provide appropriate technical and organisational security measures.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the European Economic Area (EEA), we ensure similar protection and put in place at least one of these safeguards:
We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been found to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data.
We may also use specific approved contracts with our service providers that are based in countries outside the EEA. These contracts give your personal data the same protection it has in the EEA .
Where we use service providers in the United States, we may transfer personal data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield scheme, which requires them to provide a similar level of protection of your personal data to what is required in the EEA.
If you are located in the EEA, you may contact us for a copy of the safeguards which we have put in place for the transfer of your personal data outside the EEA.
How long will Metriful store your personal data?
Unless explicitly indicated otherwise at the time of the collection of the personal data, we erase your personal data if the retention of the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed and to the extent the processing of personal data is no longer necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under applicable law (e.g. tax or commercial law).
