VEF’s Privacy Policy

VEF recognizes the importance of data protection and is committed to always maintain appropriate safeguards as required by applicable law to ensure the integrity and security of your personal data. This privacy policy informs you how the VEF group may process your personal data.

Collection of personal data

Personal data collected and processed include e.g. name, business related contact details, information on your role and details of the company or organization that you represent.

Purposes of processing your personal data

VEF processes personal data for business related matters and for administrating and maintaining agreements and business relations with our customers, suppliers and business partners. Personal data may also be processed in order to administrate our investments and to send press releases, newsletters and invitations to seminars and similar events. When processing personal data for these purposes, we rely on legitimate interests. We have a strong interest in maintaining business relationships with other companies and organisations and only processes your business information as a representative or contact person of such company or organization.

Routines for processing of personal data

VEF may use your personal data for purposes described above to share with competent authorities, business partners or service providers. If a business partner or a service provider of ours is located in a country outside the EU/EEA, your personal data may be transferred to a country that does not have data protection laws equivalent to ours. In those circumstances, we will put in place appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data in connection with the transfer.
You may contact us anytime using the contact details below if you would like further information on such safeguards.

We retain personal data as long as there is a business relationship with the company or organization that you represent or otherwise as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose of the processing. Personal data will also be retained as long as required by applicable laws, regulations or decisions by authorities. You may at any time unsubscribe from receiving press releases, newsletters and similar information and your information will thereafter no longer be retained for such purposes.
