    4. What permits the use of your personal data and for what purpose is your personal data collected?
    When performing sales, marketing, or customer relationship management activities we process personal data of our potential and current consumer and business customers (incl. e.g., newsletter subscribers, individuals who have requested a quote or submitted a contact request, participants of events and website visitors). The processing of personal data is based on an agreement, a legitimate interest of Lumon (e.g., customer relationship management, direct marketing, debt collection), on a customer relationship, or other appropriate connection or agreement between Lumon and the customer or potential customer upon consent (e.g. related to cookies).

    The purposes of processing your personal data are:
    • to process your order, manage your account, create invoice and warranty documents
    • to communicate with you during the relationship between you and Lumon (incl. e.g., feedback and customer satisfaction surveys)
    • to manage, develop, analyze, and retrieve statistics of the relationship between you and Lumon to process requests and act upon them accordingly
    • to invite you to sales and marketing events
    • to implement opinion and market surveys, and to organize prize competitions and draws
    • to conduct direct marketing, online targetings, and advertising
    • to email you regarding your open offer
    • to email you with special offers on other products and services we think you might like
    • to plan and develop business operations and services
    • to manage receivables and collect debt
    • to identify users and manage access rights
    • to detect, prevent and investigate of misuse, fraud or other crimes
    • to analyze and segment data and to retrieve statisticsfor the above mentioned purposes

    On Lumon websites and web shops, cookies are used to collect information about user behavior on our websites, web shops, and portals users. This includes, for example, devices they use, pages they visit, and download information. We use this information to improve the usability of our web services in relation to our customers and potential customers.

    5. Who do we share your personal data with, and may data be transferred outside the EEA?
    Personal data is not regularly transferred outside Lumon Group and is not transferred outside the EEA. However, we use certain services like marketing automation tools and web analytics, where information may be transferred to other countries (e.g., UK, Canada, Switzerland, and the United States). The data of these services is stored on service providers servers mainly within the ETA and United States. Some of the data processing functions of the service providers are nonetheless performed outside the EEA area, e.g., in Canada. The transfers of data to Canada, the United Kingdom and Switzerland are carried out based on the adequacy decision issued by the EU Commission.

    The level of data protection may be lower outside the EEA than in the EEA. Unless the country to which the data is transferred, such as the United States, has received the EU Commission’s adequacy decision, Lumon Group is to apply other appropriate protective measures to ensure the protection of personal data, for example by applying standard contract clauses in accordance with the European Commission’s decision on the transfer of personal data to third countries (https://commission.europa.eu/publications/standard-contractual-clauses-international-transfers_en )

    We use the services of external service providers, e.g., system and communication software providers, logistics and printing houses. According to the data protection agreements, each service provider processes personal data only to the extent that it is necessary to provide the service.
    In certain countries or certain regions of a country Lumon operates via trusted resellers or dealers. Information with trusted resellers or dealers may be shared to ensure that you are being served in the best possible way. In addition, our service providers may have access to your personal data, as their services are needed to technically process certain requests and orders.

    When Lumon processes your order, it may send your data to, and also use the resulting information from, credit reference agencies to prevent fraudulent purchases.

    6. Do we use user profiling
    We might use profiling and/or automated profiling to offer you the best possible customer service and offers which suit you best. Your profile can be based on, for example, your browsing and purchase history. The communications you receive from us are personalized based on that information.

    7. What are our principles of personal data protection? How long do we retain information?
    All your personal data is always protected with necessary technical and administrative methods. Lumon strives to ensure that data held by Lumon isn’t used incorrectly, deleted without reason, counterfeited or manipulated, and that data doesn’t end up to outsiders or get published without given permission. Our data system is protected and accessible only by Lumon employees with personal login credentials.

    Accessing the system requires a username and password. The system is also protected by firewalls and other technical solutions.

    • Data in the register is accessible only by authorized and specifically designated employees
    • Use of the register is protected with personal login credentials and authorization
    • The register is located in a computer which is stored in a data center where access is limited
    • Data contained in the register is located in secure and protected premises
    • Regular backups are taken of the register
    Your personal data is stored in our customer register for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purposes defined in this privacy notice. For example, your personal data is stored in our customer register for the lifetime of the glazing systems, which is approximately 20-30 years. If you purchase blinds, carpets, or other types of accessories, your data is stored in our systems for approximately 5-10 years.
