How do we protect your information?

Satispay has set up specific data security measures and procedures in order to ensure the safety of your personal data and to prevent accidental loss or misuse.

We hold your information for only as long as necessary for the purpose for which they are processed, in accordance with applicable laws. Your data will be stored, in compliance with the applicable law, for a term not exceeding what is necessary to pursue the purposes for which they were processed.

The criteria for determining the storage period of the data take into account the allowed processing period and the applicable law on limitation of your rights and legitimate interests, where these are the legal basis for processing.

As long as you are registered to the Forum or until you exercise your erasure right your data will be retained, without prejudice to any need of retention arising from any legal basis applicable to us.

Personal data may be stored for a longer period after having been aggregated and/or anonymised in such a way that the identification of individuals is no longer possible.

Whom may personal data be shared with?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer for marketing purposes your personal data to third parties. We share your data with our staff, Satispay group companies and other trusted third parties, including our Forum provider, where necessary, in order to keep the Forum working, for example, through outsourcing of the provision and management of the Forum, as long as those parties agree to keep this data confidential. The information and content you share on the Forum might be anonymized or aggregated in order to be transferred to Satispay group companies to develop and improve new products and services.

We may also disclose your information when required to comply with the law, enforce our Forum terms, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. Public posts on the Forum will be publicly available. Your contents posted herein will be visible also to visitors without a Forum account and might be reproduced or shared by other people.

Your personal data may also be transferred to companies located outside the EEA. In this case, Satispay will ensure the protection of the data by stipulating, if necessary, agreements that guarantee an adequate level of protection and/or adopting the standard contractual clauses provided by the European Commission.
