Where do we store your personal data?
Personal data that we collect from you is stored within the European Economic Area (EEA) but may also be transferred to and processed in a country outside EU/EEA. Atea uses vendors for mail, cloud services, antimalware, firewalls, authentication, etc. when personal data may be transferred to and processed in a country outside EU/EEA. Any each such transfer of your personal data is carried out in accordance with applicable laws. For transfers outside EU/EEA Atea uses Standard Contractual Clauses as an appendix to our data processing agreements according to Chapter V of the GDPR.
Recipients of personal data
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to third parties. Exceptions are trusted third parties that help us to run the site, conduct our business, deliver the goods you order, or provide service if these parties agree to keep the information confidential and not use it for other purposes that not agreed upon.
Why do we collect your personal data?
We collect your personal data only when we have a legal basis for it. For every specific process of personal data, we collect from you, we inform you whether the provision of personal data is statutory or required to enter a contract and whether it is an obligation to provide the personal data and possible consequences if you choose not to.
We will only store your personal data for as long as it´s necessary to perform our contractual obligations and if required by statutory storage time. When we store your personal data for purposes other than our contractual commitments, such as consent when you sign up to our events or receive a newsletter via email, we save the data only if necessary and / or statutory for the purpose.
When there is no longer a purpose or legal obligation of storing the personal data, it is deleted or anonymized.
Personal data that is only collected for a specific purpose is kept to a minimum to be able to perform the purpose, also known as data minimization.

You have the right to submit eventual complaints about the processing of your personal data to the national supervisory authority.
