Namene Solar’s Newsletter
Namene Solar’s newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Namene Solar may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were opened by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analysed by the controller in order to optimise the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
Data subjects are at any time and no cost entitled to revoke their consent to receive this newsletter. After a revocation, the data subject’s personal data will be deleted by the controller. The company will also inform marketing partners to stop their marketing communications to you as soon as we receive your request.
Who do we share your personal data with?
We may need to share your data with third parties for the purpose of providing you with the service. We ensure that data transfers with service providers are covered with appropriate controller-processor contracts and safeguards as specified by the EU and UK GDPR. Such contracts include confidentiality, strict processing rules, security safeguards, breach notification requirements and provision of assistance to Namene so that any exercise of your rights is satisfied.
In the event of a sale or purchase of any business, asset or share, we will attempt to inform you of it, as well as of the identity of the new Data Controller either by directly contacting you, by placing public notices on our website and potentially by using other appropriate media.
A list of our third-party suppliers can be provided upon request.
