We may share your personal data with affiliated companies and partner implementation companies, some of which may be located outside the Netherlands.
Where personal data is transferred from the EU or Switzerland to the US, we will cooperate in investigations by and comply with the advice of EU data protection agencies and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).
Weagree will reply to lawful requests from public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, for disclosure of personal data.
Weagree will not transfer personal data originating in the EU or Switzerland to third parties unless such third parties have entered into an agreement in writing with us requiring them to provide at least the same level of privacy protection to your personal data as required from us. We will only transfer data to our agents, resellers or third-party service providers (such as accountants, attorneys, consultants and other service providers) who have a legitimate need-to-know or need-to-access the information to provide services to or perform activities on behalf of Weagree, including in connection with the provision of services, Weagree’s administration or legal responsibilities. We acknowledge our liability for such data transfers to third parties.
Where do we store and process your personal data and keep it secure?
Weagree has databases, servers, support and helpdesks located in Amsterdam, and may engage local implementation partners worldwide. We collaborate with third parties such as cloud hosting services, suppliers and technology support located in the Netherlands to serve the needs of our customers and the continuity of our Services. We take appropriate steps to ensure that personal data is processed, secured and transferred according to applicable law. We hold your personal data in electronic and (occasionally) hardcopy files. We use security techniques to protect your personal data that we hold from misuse interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. The techniques we use include firewalls and access control procedures. For example, when you use Weagree software over the internet, the information exchange between you and the Weagree software is encrypted using a secure sockets layer (SSL) protocol.
All our employees are bound by extensive and strict confidentiality obligations aimed to prevent them from disclosing any personal data or other confidential information. Further, our employment agreements state that our employees must abide by all applicable laws and regulations.
Our policies also limit access to personal data to only those employees, contractors or representatives that a need-to-know or need-to-access the information to perform their obligations or assist us with providing our products and services to you.
How long do we keep your personal data?
We will keep personal data for as long as it is necessary to provide our products and services, and to comply with our business, tax and legal requirements. Once information is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected, we will take reasonable steps to de-identify and destroy it.
How can you seek access to and correct your personal data?
We will, upon your request, and subject to any exemptions under applicable privacy laws, provide access to the personal data that we hold about you. We will need to first identify you, your entitlement and understand the types of information you wish to access. We will generally deal with access requests within 30 days. We may charge for our reasonable costs of providing access. If we deny access to all or any part of the personal data that you request, we will notify you of our reasons in writing and explain how you can complain if you are not satisfied with our decision.
You can ask us to confirm whether we are processing your personal data, or to correct or update personal data we hold about you at any time. We will need to verify your identity. We will also independently take reasonable steps to correct personal data we hold if we are satisfied that it is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, having regard to the purpose for which it is held.
