Will personal information be transferred outside the European Union (EU)?

In general, we do not transfer an EU citizen’s personal data outside the EU. However, in some cases data might be processed on servers located outside of the EU. We might also share your personal information with another company in the Solving Group or with one of our business partners with the aim to offer you relevant Solving or Fluid-Bag products and services. In these cases, we ensure that applicable legislation is followed.

If you reside in a country outside of the EU, we might share your request and information with a local Solving or Fluid-Bag representative if applicable.

For how long is the data stored?

We store personal data only as long as it is necessary for the purpose or as required by contract or law. The time we store the data varies depending on the purpose and situation. We aim to regularly delete personal data we no longer need from our records. Thus, outdated and unnecessary information will be destroyed in an appropriate way.

Any data will be marked in the register in the same way as the registered has reported it and the data will be updated when the registered reports an update to us.

How do you guarantee safe storage of personal data?
