Customers and Business Contacts

Aparito processes personal data about contacts of existing and potential customers and/or any individuals associated with them through emails, by phone or electronic calendar invites. We process this personal data solely for our business contract and on the basis that it is in our legitimate interests to do so (i.e. to ensure that we can manage our relationship with our customers). This information will be retained securely for as long as necessary for the purposes set out for that business contract.

Personal Data, such as emails or phone numbers, will never be given or shared with 3rd parties without express permission.

In addition, we also have in place procedures and measures to manage and protect commercially confidential information we are required to handle through delivering our services for customers. These are normally dealt with through specific NDAs and contractual agreements as required.
