Our legal basis for collecting personal data
Collecting personal data based on consents
The collection of personal data based on consent will be done by using online forms that will store information related to the consent given by the individual. Individual consents will always be stored and documented in our systems.
Collecting personal data based on contracts
We use personal information for fulfilling our obligations related to contracts and agreements with customers, partners and suppliers.
Collecting personal data based on legitimate interest
We may use personal data if it is considered to be of legitimate interest, and if the privacy interests of the data subjects do not override this interest. Normally, to establish the legal basis for data collection, an assessment has been made during which a mutual interest between Artisanti and the individual person has been identified. This legal basis is primarily related to our sales and marketing purposes. We will always inform individuals about their privacy rights and the purpose for collecting personal data.
What type of personal data is collected?
We collect name, address, phone number and email addresses. We may also collect feedback, comments and questions received from you in service-related communication and activities, such as phone calls, documents, and emails.
