We process personal data for the following purposes:
1) Providing the Service and managing customer relationship
The primary purpose of processing personal data is to provide the Service and to manage and maintain the customer relationship between us and User/the company the User represents. In this case, our processing of personal data is based on the customer contract.
We send Users emails to inform about new features of the Service, ask for feedback, to target advertising or provide them other relevant information about our Service.

A User may unsubscribe from marketing communications at any time by clicking on the "Unsubscribe" or "Update preferences" link located on the bottom of emails or by contacting us at email@example.com.
We or our third-party service providers may place a cookie or similar technologies, such as a pixel tag on certain website.

3) Service development and information security
We also process personal data to improve the quality of the Service, including to monitor and analyse the use of the Service, and to ensure its security. In these cases, the legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest to ensure that our Service has an adequate level of data security, and that we have sufficient and relevant information at hand to develop our Service.
We may disclose personal data to third parties:
We may transfer personal data outside European Economic Area ("EEA") when our trusted third-party service providers are established there. For example, for marketing purposes we use Google Ads, Microsoft Advertising, LinkedIn Campaign Manager, Twitter Ads, Facebook Ads, and Reddit Ads and these service providers may be located or otherwise process personal data from the U.S. outside of EEA. To the extent personal data is transferred to a country outside of the EU/EEA, Swarmia will use the required established mechanisms that allow the transfer to these service providers in those third countries, such as the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission or another valid mechanism under the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
Swarmia will only retain personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes defined in this Policy. As a rule, the data will be processed during customer relationship. After that personal data will be retained for a short period before deleted to ensure that all contractual rights or obligations by either party are fulfilled, for example bills are paid, and shortly returning customers can retain their data. Some personal data may be retained longer when required by law, such as invoices and orders in accordance with accounting laws.
When Swarmia processes personal data for marketing purposes, the data will be deleted after 2 years from the last contact between Swarmia and the User or when the User asks Swarmia to stop marketing and for a short period after this, allowing us to implement the request.
Users have the following rights:
Please send above-mentioned requests to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you think there is a problem with the way we are handling your personal data, you have a right to file in a complaint to your national data protection authority in the EU/EEA.

We maintain reasonable security measures (including physical, electronic, and administrative) to protect personal data from loss, destruction, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure.
Please be aware that, although we endeavour to provide reasonable security measures for personal data, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
We may change this Policy from time to time. If we make any changes to this Policy, we will actively bring it to the attention of the users by using the available communication channels. The most recent version of this Policy can be found at https://www.swarmia.com/privacy.
