We will process the personal information collected via this Domovea App based on the necessity to manage our relationship with you, based on our legitimate interests which will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it, or based on your consent.

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contact with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). 

Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

5. Transfers of personal information outside the EU/EEA

We operate at a global level and, as a result, your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. In some cases, these countries may be located outside the European Union / European Economic Area (EU/EEA) and therefore may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country of residence.

Specifically, our servers are located in the EU/EEA but we may share or give access to your personal information to group entities, third party service providers and partners who may be operating from outside the EU/EEA (for example, we may use web hosting providers or cloud computing service providers who store or access your personal information outside the EU/EEA).

Where that is the case, we make sure that your personal information is transferred to third countries outside the EU/EEA that are deemed "adequate" by the European Commission (a list of adequate countries is available here link), or alternatively, where your personal information is not sent to a country that provides adequate protection, we will put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure that your personal information remains protected while it is being processed outside the EU/EEA in accordance with applicable privacy laws. These appropriate safeguards may include signing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses with the Hager affiliate, third party service provider or partner outside the EU/EEA with whom we share your personal information. For further information about transfers of personal information outside the EU/EEA, please refer to the "How to contact us" section below.

6. How long we store your personal information

We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to enable us to fulfil the purposes described in this Notice and where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested).

Once the purpose for processing your personal information no longer exists, or the period of retention has expired, or if you ask us to delete your personal information, please be aware that we may continue to store your personal information for a limited period of time if necessary to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements.

When we no longer have a purpose to process your personal information, we will make sure your personal information is either deleted or anonymised.

7. Profiling

In some instances, we may use your personal information in order to better understand your preferences and to provide customized products or services to you. We do not make any decisions based solely on automated processing of such data, which either produce legal effects that concern you or similarly significantly affect you.

8. How we protect your personal information

We are committed to ensuring the security of your personal information. We utilize robust precautions to protect the confidentiality and security of the personal information within our Domovea App, by employing technological, physical and administrative security safeguards, such as firewalls and carefully developed security procedures, for example, when you enter confidential information (such as login credentials or information submitted from within the Domovea App). We encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). These technologies, procedures and other measures are used in an effort to ensure that your personal information remains safe, secure, and only available to you and to those you authorized to access your personal information. However, no internet, e-mail or other electronic transmission is ever fully secure or error free, so you should take care in deciding what information you send to us in this way.
