1. What is personal data?
Personal data is any information that can be related, directly or indirectly, to a living natural person. Examples of personal data can include everything from personal ID numbers to email addresses, while encrypted data can also be personal data if it can be connected to natural persons.
2. What do we mean by “processing” of personal data?
The term “processing” is wide-reaching and covers most operations that can be performed on personal data. Everything from collection and storage to adaptation or alteration, use or erasure represents “processing”.

- Data from other sources
We collect personal data, for example email addresses, that you have provided to other companies within the group with whom you have a customer relationship. We do this to ensure that we always have up-to-date information about you, and to enable us to provide you with offers regarding our own goods and services as well as the goods and services available from other companies within the group as well as selected business partners. Examples of the types of data we collect include identity and contact details such as names, email addresses and phone numbers.
We also collect your data if your employer has entered into an agreement with us and, in doing so, has provided us with your personal data, for example in order for communication related to the agreement to be able to take place with you, or in order for the service/product to be able to be provided/delivered to you at the request of your employer.
In certain cases we may obtain information from other sources, for example business partners and other suppliers. We may also obtain and update your address details via a third party’s address updating services.

5. What are the legal grounds for our processing of your personal data?
In order to be able to process personal data, legal grounds must exist for such processing. Alfa Neon processes personal data on the following grounds;
- When the personal data processing is necessary in order for us to be able to fulfil an agreement that we have with you – for example, to provide/deliver or administer a product or service you have purchased
- When the personal data processing is necessary in order to fulfil a legal obligation – for example, the obligation to maintain bookkeeping in accordance with applicable legislation
- When we have a legitimate interest in the processing of your personal data – for example, in order to be able to respond to enquiries about products or services, or to communicate with you about products and services that are similar to those you have purchased in the past
- When the personal data processing is permitted due to the fact that you have provided your consent to the processing.
Please see section 7 for more information.
6. How long do we save your data?
Your personal data is only processed for as long as is necessary for the purpose or purposes for which it has been collected – for example, for as long as is necessary in order for us to be able to fulfil the obligations we have as a result of an agreement with you. We may save the data longer if required to do so by law or in order to protect our legal interests – for example, if a legal process is ongoing.
Your personal data is erased or anonymised when it is no longer relevant to the purpose or purposes for which it has been collected.
