EEA+ Privacy Notice

Last updated: November 1, 2022

If you are located in the European Economic Areathe United Kingdom, or Switzerland (EEA+), and access our website, subscribe for our services in your personal capacity, or use our services as an authorized user of an organization that subscribes for Shoreconnection services, this EEA+ Privacy Notice applies to you.

As mentioned in our other privacy disclosures, we don’t sell your personal information, but the data protection laws of the EEA+, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the so-called UK GDPR (together, “GDPR”), require us to provide information about our data processing practices to certain people in the EEA+.

Shoreconnection International AS is the controller and responsible for your personal data. With effect from June 30, 2021 – our representative in the European Union for data protection matters, pursuant to Article 27 of the GDPR is VeraSafe Ireland Ltd. With effect from June 30, 2021 – our representative in the United Kingdom for data protection matters, pursuant to Article 27 of the UK GDPR is VeraSafe United Kingdom, Ltd. For information about how to contact us or our representatives, please see Section 7 of this Supplemental EEA+ Privacy Notice.

We rely on the following legal bases to process your personal data, as appropriate:

  • necessary for us to perform a contract with you or take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract (“Contract Performance Legal Basis”), to comply with an applicable legal obligation (“Legal Obligations Legal Basis”), or to realize a legitimate interest based on an assessment of that interest and your privacy and other fundamental interests (“Legitimate Interest Legal Basis”); and
  • is performed according to your consent (“Consent Legal Basis”).

More information is provided below. Please contact us if you need details.

We may transfer your personal data to service providers and business partners outside of the EEA and/or UK. Some of these recipients are located in countries in respect of which either the European Commission and/or UK Government (as and where applicable) has issued adequacy decisions, in which case, the recipient’s country is recognized as providing an adequate level of data protection under UK and/or European data protection laws (as applicable) and the transfer is therefore permitted under GDPR Art. 45. Some recipients of your personal data may be located in countries outside of the EEA and/or the UK for which the European Commission or UK Government (as and where applicable) has not issued adequacy decisions in respect of the level of data protection in such countries (“Restricted Countries”). For example, the United States is a Restricted Country. Where we transfer your personal data to a recipient in a Restricted Country, we will either:
  • enter into appropriate data transfer agreements based on so-called Standard Contractual Clauses approved from time-to-time under GDPR Art. 46 by the European Commission, the UK Information Commissioner’s Office or UK Government (as and where applicable); or
  • rely on other appropriate means permitted by GDPR Chapter V, which establish that such recipients will provide an adequate level of data protection and that appropriate technical and organizational security measures are in place to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and against all other unlawful forms of processing.
You may ask for a copy of such appropriate data transfer agreements by contacting us using the contact details below.

We will only keep personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for. We may keep your personal data for a longer period to comply with our legal obligations or in the event of a complaint or litigation.

Regarding your personal data, you may have the right to:
  • Request access (commonly known as a “data subject access request”) – enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and information about how it is processed.
  • Request correction – enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
  • Request erasure – enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no lawful reason for us continuing to store or process it, where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons that will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Object to processing – where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms.
  • Request restriction of processing – enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data if, (i) you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (ii) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (iii) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (iv) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
  • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.
To exercise these rights, please contact us using the contact details below. Although we urge you to contact us first to resolve your issue, you always have the right to contact your data protection authority.

You are not required to provide personal data to us but if you do not provide any personal data to us, you may not be able to use our website or we may not be able to authenticate and assist you with your orders, inquiries or requests, and we generally will not be able to provide you with our products and services.
