For Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation) purposes, GlobalPort acts as data controller in relation to your personal data.

This Policy sets out the following:
All personal data is collected and processed in accordance with EU data protection laws.
“Personal data” means any identifiable information about you, like your name, email, address, telephone number and so on and any information about your access to our websites.
When you visit our websites or use our services, we collect personal data.
The categories of information and the ways we collect it can be broadly categorised into the following:

We might ask you to provide personal data to us when you contact us with questions or request support.
We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use to improve our services or for research purposes.
If you don’t want to provide us with personal data, you don’t have to, but it might mean you can’t use some parts of our websites or services.
Information we collect automatically
We collect some information about you automatically when you visit our websites or use our services, like your IP address and device type. We also collect information when you navigate through our websites and services, including what pages you looked at and what links you clicked on. This information is useful for us as it helps us get a better understanding of how you’re using our websites and services so that we can continue to provide the best experience possible (e.g., by personalising the content you see).
Some of this information is collected using cookies and similar tracking technologies. If you want to find out more about the types of cookies we use, why, and how you can control them, take a look at our cookie notice. For our Cookies policy see here.
First and foremost, we use your personal data to operate our websites and provide you with any services you’ve requested, and to manage our relationship with you.
We also use your personal data for other purposes, which may include the following:
If we don’t collect your personal data, we may be unable to provide you with all our services, and some functions and features on our websites may not be available to you.
There will be times when we need to share your personal data with third parties. We will only disclose your personal data to:
When we share data, it may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country you live in – such as to Germany, where our data hosting provider’s servers are located. These countries may have laws different to what you’re used to. Rest assured, where we disclose personal data to a third party in another country, we put safeguards in place to ensure your personal data remains protected.
For individuals in the European Economic Area (EEA), this means that your data may be transferred outside of the EEA. Where your personal data is transferred outside the EEA, it will only be transferred to countries that have been identified as providing adequate protection for EEA data (like New Zealand), or to a third party where we have approved transfer mechanisms in place to protect your personal data – i.e., by entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, or by ensuring the entity is Privacy Shield certified (for transfers to US-based third parties).
Security is a priority for us when it comes to your personal data. We’re committed to protecting your personal data and have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to make sure that happens.
The length of time we keep your personal data depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it (for example, to provide you with a service you’ve requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).
We’ll retain your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of time afterwards where we have an ongoing business need to retain it, in accordance with our data retention policies and practices. Following that period, we’ll make sure it’s deleted or anonymised.
It’s your personal data and you have certain rights relating to it.
