What information do we process?

Here is a complete list of the personal data we may want to know about you:

  • Your name
  • Your email address
  • Your mobile or phone number
  • The company you work at
  • Where is your company located
  • Industry of the company you work at
  • Your interest

Most of the information comes directly from you. We could add some information that is not a secret, like your interest or industry of the company you work at, if you’ve made those publicly available.

Who will share your data

Metadata Computer Systems Partners

We may disclose your information to our affiliates or subsidiaries, which may help us to process it.

Product or Service Providers

We may disclose your data to third-party vendors, service providers who perform functions on our behalfs, such as technical support and marketing analytics. We’ll make sure that they treat it as protective as we do.

Where is your data processed?

Your data is processed in the United Arab Emirates and may be transferred to the EU or the US. Nevertheless, your data will always be safe and under GDPR protection, despite where it is processed.

We treat your data as protective as the GDPR requires from the moment we’ve received it. If we transfer your data inside or outside our partners, we’ll use appropriate safeguards, such as standard contractual clauses, for personal data not to get outside of the GDPR scope.

How long will my data be kept?

We will delete your personal data as soon, as we no longer have a need or a legal basis to process it. What does it mean?

  1. We’ll always delete your data when we receive a request from you to do so. Please take a look here, to learn how to make such a request. In the unlikely event that we are still obliged under the law to keep your data, we’ll inform you about that.
  2. We will not store or otherwise process your data for an “unlimited period” in other cases. If we rely on legitimate interest for processing, your data will be kept as long as we are in a business relationship with you. If we don’t start a business relationship with you, your data will be stored in our systems for some limited time for our analytics to be done. In no case we will keep it for more than 1 year, the period which is necessary for communicating with your company as our potential client and after which we treat old analytics outdated, so your personal data is not needed anymore.

Don’t forget that you may always command us to delete all the information have about you as described here.
