Retention: Please see below for our general retention periods. Please note that the below retention periods may be extended or shortened, as appropriate, based on the context of our relationship with an EEA Individual, and for compliance with legal obligations (e.g., accounting, finances, tax).

We will retain the personal data of prospective customers for seven (7) years, as, historically, we have seen that prospective customers convert into paying customers within such time period. At that point, the prospective customer will have to sign up for marketing or affirmatively demonstrate interest in our products and services.  This retention period may be extended for prospective customers that are in current negotiations with iconectiv near the end of such retention period.

Current customers’ personal data will be retained until the relationship terminates, at which point their personal data will be retained by us for six (6) years from the last transaction involving this customer, and any other related legal documentation will be retained permanently, or pursuant to our record retention policies. At that point, the former customer will have to sign up for marketing or affirmatively demonstrate interest in any applicable Service. Other personal data will be retained by us in accordance with our record retention policies.

You may exercise these rights and submit a GDPR complaint by contacting: privacy@iconectiv.com with the subject line “GDPR Notice.” 

You also have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your personal data with an appropriate data protection authority.  As applicable, you may also have a right to exercise third-party beneficiary rights under Standard Contractual Clauses that you may have entered into with us.

In such case, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate appropriate, overriding legitimate grounds for the processing or if needed for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims. You may also object at any time to processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes by clicking “Unsubscribe” within an automated marketing email or by submitting your request to marcom@iconectiv.com  with the subject line “GDPR Notice” (the latter for instances where, for example, you would not like to receive follow-ups from our sales team). In such case, your personal data will no longer be used for that purpose.

Transfer of Personal Data outside the EEA: We rely on Standard Contractual Clauses and other approved data transfer mechanisms to ensure adequate protection for your personal data.

Corporate Restructuring:  In the event of a merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar corporate event, or the sale of all or substantially all of our assets, we expect that the information that we have collected, including personal data, would be transferred to the surviving entity in a merger or the acquiring entity.
