2 Basics of personal data processing
The basis for the processing is basically Seitatech's legitimate interest. The processing is also based on our statutory obligations, such as accounting obligations, statutory reporting obligations, the obligation to take care of data security and protection, risk management and customer-knowing obligations such as preventing abuse.
We collect personal data at the beginning of the customer relationship and during its duration, for newsletter subscriptions, event registrations, opinion polls, monitoring and optimization of website usage, and so that we can respond to contact requests. In addition, we process personal data to manage the events we organize with Seitatech and its potential partners.
The purpose of the processing may also be the planning and development of our business, marketing, maintenance and development of services, quality assurance, direct marketing and opinion and market research, in which case the processing is based on our legitimate interest to inform about our business and develop our business, and thereby to offer users of our services an even better service.

We keep personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purposes defined in the data protection statement, unless the legislation obliges us to keep personal data longer (for example, responsibilities and obligations related to special legislation, accounting obligations or reporting obligations), or unless Seitatech needs the information to prepare, present or defend against a legal claim or to resolve a similar disagreement situation.
The data retention period and retention criteria vary by personal data group and according to the purpose of a particular personal data group.

If personal data is transferred outside the European Union or the European Economic Area (for example, if the customer relationship so requires), Seitatech ensures an adequate level of personal data protection, e.g.
by agreeing on matters related to the processing of personal data in the manner required by data protection legislation, such as using model contract clauses approved by the European Commission.
