If you use our websites, we may also be required to collect information  about  you  or  your  computer while you browse in order to enable you to use the available services, and we we may collect anonymous information about you or your computer for analytics purposes with a view to continually improving our products and services, as explained in the legal notices on our website and in our notice about cookies.

How do we use your personal data?

The personal data concerning you that we collect is used to:

  • process your payment requests,
  • supply goods and services to you or the company you represent,
  • send you marketing information.

We also process your personal data when we are required to do so by law, and for the exercise or defence of legal claims.

We may contact you at any time for research purposes or to inform you of our special offers and other services, in accordance with your contact preferences. If necessary, we will have to obtain your consent to do so. If you no longer wish to receive communications from us, please follow the instructions to “opt out” or “unsubscribe” included in all our communications of this type.

If we are considering using your personal data for any other purpose, we will inform you of how we intend to use it once it has been collected.

We will only process your personal data for the specific purposes listed above or for any other purposes specifically authorised by law. Your personal data will only be processed within the limits of the specific purposes described above.

Our legal base for processing your personal data

We  will  only  process  your  personal  data  if  you  have  given  your  consent  (which  you  may  subsequently withdraw if consent is required by law), in order to sign an agreement with you, if the said processing is required for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of another party (such as for the purposes of market surveys), or to promote our goods and services if you are already a client or user of these.

How long is your personal data kept for?

We will only keep personal data if it is required for a specific purpose. We are required by law to keep certain files for a specified minimum period, such as personal data relating to the purchase of a product or service from the CTP. We will keep your personal data for as long as necessary to provide the services, products and information you request, or in accordance with the applicable law and our data retention policy, which we apply under the GDPR. We will also keep and use this personal data  if necessary to  meet our legal obligations,  settle  claims,  and  assert  our  commitments. Information that is no longer necessary for a valid commercial purpose and that we are not required to keep under an applicable law will be systematically destroyed via secure means.

Who do we share your personal data with?

We do not share personal data.

We will ensure that any transfer of your personal data by us is secure and/or encrypted in order to keep the data safe.

How do we protect your information?

We use reasonable and adequate administrative, technical and organisational measures to protect personal data against loss and theft, against any unauthorised use, access or disclosure, and against modification or destruction. Some parts of our websites may be password‐protected. If you use our websites and have a password, you can help to protect your privacy by ensuring that you do not share your password with anyone.

Your options in respect of how we use your information

You have the following rights in accordance with governing data protection laws:

  • If you wish  to exercise you  right  to  access,  correct,  update  or  delete personal  data concerning you, you can do so at any time by contacting at one of the addresses provided in the “Contact us” section below.
  • In addition, you are entitled to oppose the processing of your personal data, ask us to restrict the processing thereof, or submit a portability request. As in the previous case, you can exercise these rights by contacting us at one of the addresses provided in the “Contact us” section below.
  • You have the right to unsubscribe at any time from receiving marketing communications from us. You can exercise this right by clicking on the link to “opt out” or “unsubscribe” included in the marketing emails we send you. To opt out of other forms of marketing (such as postal or telemarketing), please contact us at one of the addresses provided in the “Contact us” section below.
  • Similarly, if we have collected and are processing your personal data with your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent does not affect the lawfulness of any processing that we carried out before you did so, and will not affect the processing of your personal data on the basis of lawful processing grounds other than consent.
  • You are entitled to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority in regard to our collection and use of your personal data. For further information, please contact your local data protection authority.

These rights may not apply in certain cases, especially when we are obliged to comply with legal requirements, when this would breach the rights of any person other than the person requesting access,  or  (in  the  case  of  your  right  to  request  to  your  personal  data)  when  the  request  is  manifestly unfounded or excessive.

If you wish to exercise you right to access, correct, amend or delete your personal data, please contact  us  at  one  of  the  addresses  provided  in  the  “Contact  us” section below. We may be  required to ask you for specific information in order to confirm your identity.

We respond to all requests that we receive from natural persons wishing to exercise their data protection rights, in accordance with the applicable data protection laws.

Updates to this Privacy Policy

We may be required to update this Privacy Policy at any time in response to changes in legislation or technical or commercial developments. When we update our Privacy Policy we take appropriate steps  to  inform  you,  in  a  manner  consistent  with  the  extent  of  the  changes  we  make.  We  will  request your consent for any significant changes to the Privacy Policy if and when this is required by applicable data protection laws.
