It is clear that Epiroc will always abide local laws and regulations and will refrain from the collection or use or personal data in a location where it is prohibited by law.
We may collect, use and process your personal data in order to provide you with services, products or information that you request. The collection of personal data will be transparent to you, and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to provide it. In order to provide you with a specific product, service, or information or to process a transaction, we may request your personally identifiable information. This will be indicated whenever we collect it.
For further information on the type of personal data that we may collect, please see below under “Categories of personal data, purposes of process and legal bases”.
Further, we may process your personal data for the purpose of marketing, meaning that we may send you information and offers about products or services which we believe may be of interest to you. The legal basis for our processing is that it is necessary for our legitimate interest of maintaining good customer relations. You may always object to marketing from us, please see below under “Your Rights”.
When you enter our website, we may collect your computer’s IP address. The IP address does not identify you as an individual but does identify your Internet service provider. Other non-personally identifiable information that we may collect include the type of Internet browser used, the type of computer operating system used, and the domain name of the website from which you visited our site. The information is aggregated to provide broad demographic information, such as the geographic location of visitors and how long they stay on our site. Collecting this type of information allows us to administer our site, diagnose server problems, analyze trends and statistics, and provide better customer service.
In addition, we may use your personal data for the purposes of analyzing and developing our website and its services and for marketing purposes. The legal ground for our processing is that the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests to improve our services and our marketing measures. For the avoidance of doubt, data available to Epiroc through your use of the website and its services shall belong to Epiroc without any restrictions (provided that it doesn’t contain your personal data).
Personal data is only collected when necessary to provide a product, service, information, process a transaction or if you submit it to us for other purposes, and provided that we have legitimate legal bases for such processing. If you choose not to provide any of the personal information requested, Epiroc may be unable to complete your transaction, or provide the information, services or products you have requested. When collected, we will clearly state the purposes for which the personal data might be used as well as the period during which the personal data will be kept by us.
For further information on the purposes for our collection and use of personal data, as well as the legal bases for such collection and use, please see below under “Categories of personal data, purposes of process and legal bases”.
