Forus Security AS information on the processing of personal data
Processing of personal data
Personal data, purpose of data processing and legal basis
Personal data is any information related to a person, such as name, personal identification code, e-mail, telephone number and other data related to a specific person.
Forus Security provides security services and related ancillary services and also uses personal data for this purpose.
Forus Security uses personal data primarily for the direct purpose of providing the service, as well as for market research, direct marketing, service development and quality assurance.
The main legal basis for the processing of personal data is a security service and other service agreement between Forus Security and a customer, as well as a legal basis or a customer's consent. The use of personal data may also be based on the legitimate interest of Forus Security or another person, of which we inform the customer separately.
Forus Security does not use personal data to make automated decisions if this leads to the restriction of the customer's rights (e.g. a negative decision).
Forus Security may use “Cookies” on its website by posting a respective notice on the website and asking for your consent.
Sources of personal data
Forus Security uses personal data for the provision of security services and related ancillary services and, for this purpose, generally receives the data from its contractual partner, i.e. a customer, during the performance of the contract. In the event that it is not possible to obtain the data necessary for the performance of the contract from the customer, the quality of service may suffer or the service may become more costly or otherwise unfavourable to the customer.
In addition to the data received from customers, we may, as an exception, receive data from other persons. For example, when signing a security service agreement, we may request data from the service provider that manages creditworthiness and payment default information to verify the customer's solvency. We also receive personal data from public registers.
Disclosure of personal data
Forus Security keeps personal data confidential and does not generally transfer personal data to any other person (a processor). As an exception, Forus Security provides personal data to the processor if it is necessary for the performance of an agreement signed with the customer, if there is the customer's consent or other legal basis. Forus Security transfers personal data to the processor under an agreement whereby the processor undertakes to keep the personal data confidential and to use it only for the purposes specified in the agreement. Forus Security may use processors and provide them with personal data in the provision of its services:
to store personal data received during the performance of the agreement (server service);
for the operation of ICT services (IT partners);
for advertising and marketing purposes with regard to services (mail marketing services);
to recover debts (collection companies, default registers).
Forus Security does not transfer personal data to a third country outside the European Union and the European Economic Area, which does not have an adequate level of protection of personal data.
Retention of personal data
Forus Security retains personal data until it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. If personal data is no longer necessary, we will delete it. If the data relates to a legal relationship arising out of an agreement or law, we may retain the data for as long as it is necessary to file or defend our legal claim.
According to the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR), a person has the following rights:
a) to access their personal data and request that inaccurate data be rectified;
b) to request the erasure or restriction of processing of personal data;
c) to require the transfer of personal data;
d) to object to the processing of personal data;
e) to require not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing;
f) to withdraw consent for the processing of personal data at any time;
g) to submit a complaint against the processing of personal data with the data protection authority or courts.
Forus Security responds to inquiries regarding personal data when acting as a controller of personal data. When responding to inquiries, Forus Security complies with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation and other legislation.
