3.0 PERSONAL INFORMATION
Hypergene handles personal information based on information provided via our website and in personal contacts - via telephone calls, e-mails and / or meetings. We may on occasion also collect or purchase personal information from third parties, e.g. from vendors like Bisnode, for processing in our CRM and marketing automation systems. In the cases where we have collected or purchased personal information, the person in question will receive information about this within 30 days.
The personal information that is handled is in all cases information that concerns the person's professional role. All registrants have been judged to have an interest in products and services in order to better perform their work and achieve their organization’s goals. We may also handle information that other stakeholders have provided via forms on our website, e.g. competitors, suppliers, investors or jobseekers.
In general, you can visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. You may be required to provide your personal information, such as your name, telephone number, address, e-mail address, etc. if needed, for example, to correspond with you, to process an order or to provide you with more information. It is our intent to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you on the Internet.
We may process your personal information for our legitimate business interests, which include some or all of the following:
- where the processing enables us to enhance, modify, personalize or otherwise improve our services/communications for the benefit of our customers
- to enhance the security of our network and information systems
- to better understand how people interact with our websites
- for direct marketing and/or to provide e-mail communications which we think will be of interest for your professional role
- to use for recruitment and human resource purposes
- to determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and advertising.
“Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you, in your professional role, the best service/products and the best and most secure experience. For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant for potential customers, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your professional role. It can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example, we may process your information to ensure our websites and systems are secure.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests - we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). If you have any concerns about the processing, you have the right to object to processing that is based on our legitimate interests. For more information on your rights, please see section 4 below.
