How is your data processed?
In processing your personal data we rely on the lawful basis of legitimate interests.

We comply with our legal obligations and collect information for this purpose.
We will not share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside the date controller, except where we are required to share your information with any third parties who provide services on our behalf. Some of the recipients of your personal data referenced may be based in countries outside of the European Economic Area whose laws may not provide the same level of data protection.
We may also share personal data when it is lawfully demanded by authorities such as the government, regulatory bodies, auditors or police. Similarly, we may share data to protect the security of our database, as a precaution against legal liability, or in the event of a joint venture, collaboration, reorganisation or similar event.
The website is hosted on our servers in Bulgaria. We employ strict technical and organizational (security) measures to protect your information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage both online and offline.
These measures include:
– training to relevant staff to ensure they are aware of our privacy obligations when handling personal data;
– administrative and technical controls to restrict access to personal data on a ‘need to know’ basis (passwords, digital certificates);
– technological security measures, including fire walls, encryption and anti-virus software;
– physical security measures, such as staff security badges to access our premises.
Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal data, the transmission of data – especially over the internet (including by e-mail) – is never completely secure. We endeavor to protect personal data, but we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to us or by us.
We limit access to your personal information to those who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information in order to carry out their jobs.
How long do we keep your data?
We keep data in accordance with regulatory obligations and good practice. The time depends on the nature of the information. The time also may change. Your personal data will not be retained longer than necessary for the purposes described above.
As a general rule, records in the framework of our business activities that may contain personal data (e.g. contracts, orders, correspondence etc.) are stored for a period of 10 years.
Depending on the specific situation and the applicable national legislation, we may however retain your personal data for a longer period. This will in particular be the case if any of the following periods is longer:
(i) as long as is necessary for our daily business;
(ii) any retention period that is required by law; or
(iii) the end of the period in which litigation or investigations might arise.
