The data may also be used to analyse purchase habits with the purpose of supplying you with relevant information and marketing and to improve the Website, payment methods and payment processes. Processing for the purpose of improving payment methods and payment processes may include processing where your personal data, inter alia your personal identity number, is transferred to other companies within GTG’s group and to third party providers to be included in the basis for the analysis.

HOW WILL WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
In order to protect the personal data that we process, we have implemented several security measures. We have implemented security procedures and technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data e.g. certification procedures for web browsers. We furthermore have sufficient firewalls and anti-virus programs in order to protect and prevent unauthorized access to the network. Physical access to the premises where the data is stored is limited and employees are required to be identified in order to gain access. GTG furthermore uses e.g. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) which is a protocol for the safe transfer of data over the Internet (or other networks). As a customer, you need to check that SSL is not turned off in the settings of the web browser. With the purpose of preventing any unauthorized access upon processing you credit card number, one-way codes will be used.
HOW LONG WILL MY PERSONAL DATA BE KEPT BY GTG?
If you provide your consent to being a registered customer/member with GTG, your data will be kept until you deregister. You may at any time deregister from being a customer. If you do not register as a customer/member, your personal data will be kept only for as long as it is necessary to comply with law or in order for GTG to fulfil its obligations towards you, e.g. to complete delivery or warranty obligations. No matter what, your personal data will never be kept for a period longer than what is permitted in compliance with applicable personal data legislation.
