Within the framework of its commercial relations, the personal data is processed on the basis of GTT’s legitimate interest in developing its business. You may opt out of these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe links provided in the communications themselves.
|Source of the data||
The personal data comes from the information provided or made publicly available by the actual/potential customer. In the context of contractual relations, failure to provide personal data may render it impossible to conclude or perform the contract.
GTT limits the collection of personal data to that which is adequate, relevant and strictly necessary for processing purposes, including data relating to professional life (identity, contact details, image).
|To whom do we forward your personal data?||
Your personal data is forwarded to the various internal departments at GTT involved in the processing.
Within the framework of the company’s contractual relations, personal data is transmitted to fiscal and financial bodies.
For communication operations, GTT shares information with communication operators (webinar platform, emailing platform and social media) and event-organisation companies.
Finally, GTT may be required to disclose the data to third parties if such disclosure is required by law, regulation or court order, or if such disclosure is necessary to protect and defend its rights.
|Under what conditions may your data be transferred outside the European Union?||Within the framework of its contractual or commercial relations, GTT deals with customers on an international scale and personal data is therefore transferred outside the EU. In such a case, GTT will apply the standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission.|
|How long do we keep your personal data?||
Customers’ personal data is kept for the duration of the contract plus the applicable limitation period.
For accounting purposes, certain contractual items may be retained for 10 years.
The personal data of potential customers is kept for 3 years after the last contact.
In general, personal data is kept without prejudice to legislation or regulations specific to certain data categories that require a particular retention period or the erasure of such personal data.
