Our legal basis for collecting personal data

Collecting personal data based on consent

The collection of personal data based on consent from the data subject will be done by using a “Consent Box” that you will have to tick off as a prerequisite to use our platform. By clicking the box, you agree that you have read and understood this Privacy Statement, and then you acknowledge the type and extent of personal data that will be logged in our system concerning you as an individual.

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 CleanQuote and the individual person has been identified. 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 the following personal data:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Job title
  • E-mail address

We store personal data for as long as we find it necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the personal data was collected, while also considering our need to answer your queries or resolve possible problems, to comply with legal requirements under applicable laws, to attend to any legal claims/complaints, and for safeguarding purposes.

This means that we may retain your personal data for a reasonable period of time after your last interaction with us.
