We will process any personal data that you may provide us through the “contact us” form, as well as through other means. Generally, this personal data may include your name, last name, email, company, phone number, country, city and any other personal data that you may provide us with through the free text box. By providing us with your data, you guarantee us and take responsibility for the veracity and accuracy thereof.

PURPOSES AND LEGAL BASIS FOR DATA PROCESSING
Purpose of rendering the services and/or respond to your queries based on Art. 6.1.(b) GDPR (need to execute a contract).
Purpose to send you commercial emails about our services based on Art. 6.1.(a) GDPR (consent).
Purpose of performing navigation analysis of our Website based on Art. 6.1.(a) GDPR (consent).
We will retain your data for as long as our client-provider commercial relationship is in force, in order to manage it correctly and to send you commercial information of interest to you. However, if we observe a prolonged period of inactivity, we will erase your data if the data processing is no longer adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which the data is processed. The above default rule will apply unless you request the erasure of your data.
Once the processing of your data is no longer adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which the data is processed, we will solely retain your data for the purposes of discharging potential responsibilities as required by any applicable regulations.
Generally, we do not need to disclose your data to third parties to perform our services. However, note that we do need to disclose your personal information to:
Providers: those providers that need to access your personal data to provide us with their services will have access to your data, such as accounting firms, IT service providers, cloud platforms, CRM providers, partners, consultants or collaborators. These third parties will act as our subprocessors and will have implemented the appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information, including the relevant data processing agreement according to Art. 28 GDPR.
Other: we will disclose your personal data to third parties if required by law, by a public or judiciary authority or for public interest or public order purposes, such as, for example, to comply with anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing, regulations, tax obligations or Social Security obligations.
We do not and we do not intend to carry out international transfers. However, as usual today, some IT/technology providers have their servers outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), for instance in the US. In the case that one of our providers is located outside the EEA (e.g., Google), we will enter into as many documents as necessary to ensure that it offers appropriate safeguards for the data subjects equivalent to those of the EU to carry out such international transfers.
