Any reference below to GDPR is meant as a reference to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 ("GDPR").

2 Personal data we collect and process

We collect information about you in order to register you as an attendant to courses and seminars or newsletters, organise events, to send brochures, invitations or any other information regarding our services and activities and to respond to enquiries from users and others. We also collect information in relation to our agreements with supplies and other collaborators. In this relation we handle the following personal data: Name, position, company, email address, phone number, address, as well as other information provided to us through enquiries or which are required in order to follow-up on events or perform activities or services.

The legal basis for our processing of personal data is GDPR art. 6 no. 1 letter a (consent) and b (contract). It is voluntary for you to provide us with your personal data, but if we are not provided with the necessary information we may not be able to respond to your enquiries or to provide you with our services.

We use cookies on our websites. Cookies are primarily used to measure traffic and optimise the service. Please click here for more information on our use of cookies.

We also use cookies in our presence in social media. When you use our sites in social media the social media channel collects personal data which is used for statistical purposes. Wikborg Rein does not have access to the personal data collected, but we will have access to anonymized statistics elaborated by the social media channel based on the collected data.

We will not process personal data for marketing purposes unless we have obtained your specific consent to such activities or we have an existing client relation to you. You may at any time opt out of marketing communications by sending us an email (please see contact details in item 8 below) or unsubscribe via link in our newsletters and invitations.

3 Use of personal data

In certain cases we may transfer personal data to our collaborators and suppliers, such as IT suppliers, marketing agencies, suppliers of client satisfaction surveys, issuers of newsletter etc. These recipients will process personal data on our behalf and only in accordance with our instructions.

4 Disclosure of personal data

In general, we aim to limit our processing of your personal data to what is strictly necessary. However, in some circumstances, we may share your contact information with our partners in connection with joint events, and you may therefore receive e-mails from our partners.

We may also disclose your personal data to external third parties if required by law, or if disclosure forms part of the services we provide for you. Such third parties may include police, tax authorities, courts of justice or other public authorities.

5 How long do we retain personal data?

We will never retain personal data longer than what is necessary for the purposes for which they were collected. We will either permanently anonymize or in a secure manner delete those of your personal data that we no longer require.

6 Your rights as data subject
