- To be able to respond correctly to the User who has used the website’s contact form.
- To be able to manage candidacies for vacancies.
- To send newsletters relating to commercial and advertising material from VICOMTECH, if it has been expressly requested by the User, so that no newsletters will be sent to those users who have not expressly requested them via the corresponding box or via the section prepared to that effect.
VICOMTECH shall only use the personal data of the data subjects for the aforementioned purposes. If the information is used for a different purpose, VICOMTECH shall request the prior consent of the holder of the personal information.
Legitimate basis of the processing
The legal basis legitimising the processing of the data obtained via the form is the consent granted by the User to carry out the purposes described above, by sending the form.
VICOMTECH is the sole recipient of the User data obtained, notwithstanding that it also has certain data processors who provide information technology and technical services and who, in any case, are committed to the use of the data under conditions of confidentiality and conformity with the purposes for which they have been obtained.
Also, VICOMTECH shall facilitate the Users’ personal data to the competent authorities when it is required to comply with current legislation.
Data processing and storage period
VICOMTECH shall only store the Users’ data to the extent that is necessary for the purpose for which they have been obtained and in accordance with the legal basis which legitimises their processing.
- For the purpose of personnel selection, the period shall be one year from the closing of the open vacancy.
- For the purpose of sending commercial communications, three years from the point at which the user withdraws their consent.
- For query resolutions, six months from the date of resolution.
In the event that a User exercises the aforementioned rights, VICOMTECH may retain the data without making use of them for as long as they are necessary for the exercise of their right to defend against potential claims or in the event that legal or judicial responsibilities may arise that must be dealt with and for which data recovery might be necessary.
