Our Legitimate interest for collection and processing of personal data
We will use your personal data always with a lawful basis when:
- It is necessary for the “Performance of a Contract”(e.g., fulfill a sales order)
- You provide “Consent” the use of it (e.g., subscribed your email to the marketing list)
- It is in our “Legitimate interest” (e.g., share your data with other ASSA ABLOY relevant entities)
- We are “Legally Obligated” (e.g., to fulfill legal and statutory requirements)
To justify the processing under section B above, ASSA ABLOY has performed a balancing test to ensure that your privacy interests do not outweigh our legitimate interest. Since the processing is limited to non-sensitive data and processed data is aggregated, we have concluded that your privacy interest does not outweigh our legitimate interest. As a data subject, you have a right to obtain information on how we conclude the balancing test in your case.
Transfer of personal data
We may transfer your personal data to the following categories of recipients to the extent necessary to complete the processes stipulated above or if legally required:
- Government agencies and institutions;
- Other legal entities within the ASSA ABLOY group; and
- Our service providers, such as legal counsel or IT hosting providers relevant to the “service.”
These third parties may only use your personal data according to our instructions.
We exercise care in facilitating the transfer of data between your computer or device and our computers or servers (or third party servers which operate and store personal data for the “service”). We have the mechanisms in place to safeguard your personal data after we receive it.
We have our servers and offices in the European Union and the United States; it is possible that during one of our processes, your personal data may be transferred to, stored, or processed in one of these locations.
