In order to best describe your personal data, we continuously assess the higher risk of our data processing actions negatively affecting your fundamental rights. We do this by protecting your right to data security.
Kanved Patent Consulting is the data controller, and we ensure that your personal data is processed in accordance with the legislation.
We have fair and transparent data processing
Processing of personal data
We use information about you to improve our service.
The data we use may, in relevant contexts, include
- General personal information
- Master information, including name, nationality, address, email address, telephone number
- Payment information, including customer number, price, item and card number
- Purchase history
- Traffic and usage data regarding Kanved Patent Consulting's online services.
- Personally sensitive information such as date of birth
We collect your personal information from these sources
Our data processing can basically be divided into the categories:
- Information you choose to provide us.
- Information we receive when you use our services.
We process your personal information for specific purposes
We process your data for specific purposes. These purposes are:
- Processing of your purchase and delivery of our service
- Fulfilling your request for products or services
- Improving our products and services
- Targeting our communication and marketing to you
- Adapting partners' communication to you
- Information via our website and social media
- Managing your relationship with us
- Compliance with legal requirements
- Implementation of and dissemination of our activities, activities, conventions, tournaments, events and courses, etc.
We process your personal data when we have a legal reason
Legal reasons for treatment are in particular:
- Our legitimate interests in processing your information (the balance of interests rule)
- That it is necessary to fulfill a contract with you
- Treatment according to legal requirements
- Treatment with consent
We weigh your and our interests
To the extent that we process ordinary personal data about you that is not legally required for us to process, obtained by your consent or justified by a contract fulfillment on your initiative, this processing will be motivated solely by legitimate interests such as:
- Implementation and dissemination of our work.
- Information for member associations.
- If you have provided personal information to us in connection with the fulfillment of a contract, we will continue to store your information for the purpose of information about our products and services. If this information is covered by the Marketing Act, only similar products and services will be informed unless we have your advanced consent.
- We store information to the relevant and necessary extent for statistics and the like, as long as the information has historical value.
We only process relevant personal information
We only process data about you that is relevant and sufficient for the purposes defined above. The purpose is crucial for the type of data about you that is relevant to us. The same applies to the extent of the personal information we use. We use e.g. no more data than we need for the specific purpose.
Before we process your personal information, we investigate whether it is possible for us to minimize the amount of data about you. We are also investigating whether some of the data types we use can be used in anonymized or pseudonymized form. We can do so if it does not adversely affect our obligations or the service or service we offer you.
We only process relevant personal information
We only collect, process and store the personal information that is necessary to fulfill our stated purpose. In addition, it may be determined by law what type of data is required to be collected and stored for our business operations. The type and extent of personal data we process may also be necessary to fulfill a contract or other legal obligation.
We want to make sure that we only process personal information that is necessary for each of our specific purposes. Therefore, it is embedded in our IT systems that only the amount of data needed is collected. It is also automatically ensured that the scope of the treatment is not unnecessarily large and the storage time is not too long.
To protect you from unauthorized access to your personal information, we also use solutions that automatically ensure that data is only available to relevant employees. There is also embedded protection against an unlimited number of people accessing data.
We check and update your personal information
We check on your initiative that the personal information we process about you is not incorrect or misleading. We also make sure to update your personal information on an ongoing basis. As our service depends on your data being correct and up to date, we ask you to inform us of relevant changes to your data.
We delete your personal information when it is no longer needed for the purpose that was the reason for our collection, processing and storage of your data.
When we no longer need to process your personal information actively, e.g. because you stop as a customer or business partner, we will continue to store your general personal information for up to 6 years.
If we process information about you of a more sensitive nature (CPR number, information about criminal offenses and sensitive information) on the basis of your consent or by legal requirement, the information will be deleted immediately after the processing purposes have been fulfilled.
In some cases, we obtain your consent before we process your personal information.
Often, our processing of your personal data will be based on a legal basis other than consent. We therefore only obtain your consent when it is necessary to carry out our treatment purposes.
Your consent is voluntary and you can withdraw it at any time by contacting us. Use the contact information above for more information.
When we collect personal information about children and young people under the age of 18 who require consent, we make an assessment of whether the child is able to provide the personal information in question. Our starting point is 15 years. If not, we obtain parental consent. If we collect personal information about children via information services (apps and social media), children from the age of 13 can give their own consent.
In some cases, we pass on your personal information
If we pass on your personal information to partners and actors, e.g. for marketing purposes, we obtain your consent and inform you about what your data will be used for. You can at any time object to this type of disclosure, and you can also refuse inquiries for marketing purposes, which are covered by the Marketing Act, in the CPR register.
We do not obtain your consent if we are legally obliged to disclose your personal information, e.g. as part of reporting to an authority.
We obtain your consent before we pass on your personal information to partners in third countries. If we pass on your personal data to business partners in third countries, we are confident that their level of personal data protection matches the requirements we have set out in this policy under applicable law. Among other things, we requirements for the processing of data, for information security and for the fulfillment of the rights you have in relation to e.g. to oppose you profiling and lodge a complaint with the Danish Data Protection Agency.
We protect your personal information and have internal rules on information security.
We have adopted internal rules on information security, which contain instructions and measures that protect your personal data against being destroyed, lost or altered, against unauthorized disclosure, and against unauthorized access or knowledge of them.
We have established procedures for granting access rights to those of our employees who process sensitive personal information and data that reveals information about personal interests and habits. We control their actual access through logging and monitoring. To avoid data loss, we regularly back up our data sets. We also protect the confidentiality and authenticity of your data through encryption.
In the event of a security breach that results in a high risk for you of discrimination, ID theft, financial loss, loss of reputation or other significant inconvenience, we will notify you of the security breach as soon as possible.
