Your data will be erased when it is no longer required.
In general, Skamol follows the retention period applicable under the Danish Bookkeeping Act. In order to ensure the correct processing of recurring customer relationships, potential complaint cases and liabilities under guarantees, as well as fulfil our obligations, we have estimated that it is necessary to retain data for up to five years after the current business relationship has ended.
You have a number of rights in relation to our processing of data about you under existing laws.
You can exercise your personal data rights by contacting us. You can find our contact information at the top of this policy.
Once you have requested to have access to your personal data, to have it rectified or erased or have raised an objection to our data processing, we will investigate the possibility of accommodating your request. We will reply to your request as soon as possible and no later than one month after we have received it.
- Right to view data (right of access):
You have the right to access the data we process about you, as well as a number of additional data.
- Correction of data (right of rectification):
You have the right to have the personal data we collect about you corrected if you believe that it is inaccurate. You can do this by contacting us and telling us where the inaccuracies are and how they can be corrected. We will assess whether or not we believe your request is justified in all cases. When you contact us with a request regarding the correction or erasure of your personal data, we will investigate whether or not the conditions are met and if so, implement the changes or deletions as soon as possible.
- Right to erasure:
Personal data will generally be erased when it is no longer required. In some specific cases, you have the right to have specific data about you erased prior to our normal date for erasure. This applies, e.g. if you withdraw your consent and we have no another basis for processing the data. You may ask to have your data deleted if you believe that it is no longer necessary for the purpose we acquired it for. You may also contact us if you believe that your personal data is being processed in violation of the legislation or other legal obligations.
- Right to restriction of processing:
If you contest the data we have registered or otherwise process, you may request to restrict the processing of the data until we have been able to determine if the data is correct. You may also request restriction instead of erasure if you believe our processing of the data to be unlawful, that we no longer require the data or if you believe your legitimate interests precede the interests of the data controller. If the request to restrict the processing of your data is upheld, henceforth, we may only process the data with your consent or for the purpose of determining, establishing or defending legal requirements, or for protecting a person or important public interests.
- Right to transmit data (right to data portability):
You have the right to receive personal data you have made available to us, as well as data we have obtained about you from other operators on the basis of your consent. Your data may also be forwarded to you if we process data about you as part of a contract in which you are a party. You also have the right to transfer this personal data to another service provider. You can also ask us to send the data directly from the data controller to another authority or company. If you wish to exercise your right to data portability, you will receive your personal data from us in a widely used and machine-readable format.
- Right to object:
You have the right to object to our processing of data about you. You may also object to our disclosure of your data for marketing purposes. You can submit your objection by using the contact information at the top of this policy. We will terminate the processing of your data if your objection is justified.
- Right to receive information about new purposes:
- Right to withdraw your consent:
You may withdraw your consent at any time if our processing of your data is carried out on the basis of your consent. We will no longer be able to process the data if you withdraw your consent. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent prior to the withdrawal is not affected by your withdrawal. If we have a different legal basis for the processing other than consent, which pursues a specific objective - such as the retention of data for reasons of compliance with accounting rules - this processing may continue to be carried out.
