The handling of your contact details is based on what the GDPR calls legitimate interest. This means that we have judged that there is a mutual interest/need for us to offer you our products and services, and that it justifies us collecting and saving your data. Based on this balancing of interests, we have retrieved your contact details from publicly available places, for example your company's website. We use the data to contact you via mailing. You can easily unsubscribe from future mailings or ask us to remove you completely from our databases.

If you have initiated contact with us yourself, for example by downloading a guide, we save your data until you or we want to end the contact. The easiest way to do this is by clicking on the link at the bottom of our mailings.

If we have initiated the contact, your data is stored as long as we judge that there is a mutual interest in this. We regularly go through our database and delete contacts who do not show an interest in contact, for example who during a period have not opened emails they receive.
