We receive part of the information by registering how you interact with our Services, for example by using web technology like cookies on our sites and by receiving user data from program software that runs on your device.
When we treat your personal data, we do this with your consent and/or based on legitimate interests and needs. Which data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with Pricer, your choices, including your integrity settings, and the services and functions you use. The data we collect can include the following:

Demographic data. We collect data about you, such as age, sex, country and language setting.

For example, we collect information about which pages you visit and which guides you download. We also collect data about the device, connection and configuration, which means data about your device and the network you use to connect to our Services. This can also include information about operative system and IP address.
Interests. We collect data about your interests, for example, which kind of content you are most interested in. On top of the interests that you expressly tell us, your interests can also be derived or concluded from other information we collect.
We also collect information that you provide to us and the content in messages that you send to us, such as information provided in our contact form or feedback that you write, or questions and information you submit to support.
Event filming and photography: We may photograph, film, broadcast or record our events in which case we may process information such as your voice, likeness and image if you are identifiable from such photograph, film, broadcast or recording.
How we use your personal data
We use information that we collect for the following main reasons, which are described in more detail below:
- To operate our business and provide (including improving and adjust) the services we offer
- To fulfill our commitment as a client, supplier and employer
- To communicate, including campaigns and newsletters
- To market our services and show advertisements, on our own sites and on platforms where we have permission from you or where it is allowed according to law.
Due to these reasons, we combine the data we collect to give you a smoother, more coherent and personally-tailored experience. To improve the protection of your integrity, we have built in technical and organizational measures that are formed to prevent certain combinations of data.[For example, we have limited access to the data that we collect and on our part, we can only see the information we need to fulfill our assignment, so-called level security safety.]
Provide and improve our products and services. We use data to provide and improve the services we offer and to perform necessary business operations. This includes managing the services, maintaining and improving the services, developing new functions and offers. We also use our marketing automation software Pardot to improve our products and services as well as provide a better experience on the site.
Communication. We use data to stay in touch with you. For example, we can contact you by [email, phone or other means] to answer your questions about our offers and services. We also send you newsletters when you subscribe to our emails. If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter, you can unsubscribe from a specific newsletter or all of Pricer’s communications.
Advertisements. We use the data we collect through our interactions with you on our home page, emails and third party websites, to show advertisements. For example to:
- Market an event, seminar or conference.
- Market a guide, news item or article.
The ads you see on our sites and in social media can be selected based on data about you that we process, such as your interests, your job title, your company, search queries or content you consume. The ads can also be selected from other information that we find out about you with time and with the help of demographic data, position data (where possible), search queries, interests, user data from our website and from our advertisers’ web sites. We refer to these ads as “interest-based advertising” in this policy.
Reasons why we share your personal data

Finally, we may need to share or save your personal data when we consider it necessary to:

- manage and maintain the security of our services, including preventing or stopping an attack on our systems or networks,

Your individual rights
Pricer adheres to current data protection laws in the European Union, which includes the following rights:
– If processing personal data is based on your consent, you are entitled to withdraw your consent for future processing of personal data at any time.
– You have the right to request a registry extract (as defined in the law), access to a copy of your personal data, and request rectification and, in certain circumstances, deletion of your personal data.

Security of your personal data
Please do not send sensitive information to Pricer via email. Sensitive data should be handled securely via SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), a 128-bit encryption service. Pages which use this technology have web addresses that start with HTTPS instead of HTTP, such as Pricer’s own website http://bak.pricer.com.cn.
Our storage of personal data
Pricer retains personal information as long as it is necessary to provide the products and services, fulfill the transactions you have requested and approved, or for other necessary purposes, such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes and enforcing our agreements. Because these needs may vary for different types of data and for different types of products, services and contexts, actual retention periods may vary. Criteria that determine how long we store data are, for example:
How long are personal data needed to provide the products and services?
This includes, for example, maintaining and improving the performance of products and services, protecting our systems, and administering necessary business and accounting information. This is the general rule underlying the calculation of most storage periods.
Is the personal information extra sensitive?
In that case, a shorter retention period is usually used.
If you have questions about your personal data, a complaint or a question to our Data Protection Representative, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will answer your query within 30 days.
