2. COLLECTION AND CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL DATA
Priogen collects personal data about you when you interact with us, for instance, via e-mail correspondence or phone in relation to our existing contractual relationship or the establishment or termination of such. In this respect, Priogen processes the ordinary personal data you have provided to Priogen, i.e., your name, e-mail address, telephone number, address, your position in the company you are employed at, your position, place at work, etc.
Priogen does not process special categories of personal data (sensitive personal data) about you.
3. PURPOSE AND LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING
Priogen limits its collection, storing and processing of personal data to situations where the processing is necessary for a specific purpose.
The processing of your personal data is necessary in order to perform a contract to which you are a party (to the extent that you are party to a contract with Priogen), cf. Article 6 (1) (b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Priogen which are regarded not to be overridden by your interests or fundamental rights, cf. Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. Such legitimate interests are, for instance:
- fulfilment of contractual obligations with the company you are representing;
- maintaining and enhancing customer and business relationships;
- invoicing for the services your company provides to Priogen or vice versa;
- communicating with you on the basis of your inquiry or if Priogen has any questions to the specific services;
- recording of the telephone conversation you have had with our traders;
- documentation of events, correspondence, etc. in case of a specific dispute between Priogen and the company you are employed at; and
- providing you with a better website experience and website statistics.
Moreover, the processing is necessary for compliance with legal obligations to which Priogen is subject, cf. GDPR Article 6(1)(c). This legal basis specifically applies e.g., when Priogen records your telephone conversations with our traders as Priogen must comply with the rules, best practice and industry standards pursuant to the Regulation on Wholesale Energy Market Integrity and Transparency (REMIT). In regard of legal obligations, Priogen is also processing and retaining bookkeeping material pursuant to applicable bookkeeping rules.
4. RECIPIENTS OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

In certain specific cases, e.g., in connection with disputes, including when the disclosure of your personal data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of Priogen’s legal claims, Priogen may disclose your personal data to its advisers or other relevant third parties provided it is deemed necessary and lawful.
Further, certain recipients process personal data on behalf of Priogen and may only process your personal data in accordance with the instructions given by Priogen. These third parties are not permitted to process your personal data for their own purposes. To the extent Priogen discloses or transfers your personal data to these third parties who may use your personal data for their own purposes, such disclosure or transfer will only take place if it is in accordance with applicable law and with prior consent obtained from you, where such consent is required.
5. TRANSFER OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO A THIRD COUNTRY (OUTSIDE OF EU/EEA)
In certain cases, your personal data may be transferred to a country outside of EU/EEA, for instance, to an affiliate of Priogen or a vendor. Priogen ensures that such transfer will be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection laws. This entails that any party outside of EU/EEA that comes in possession of your personal data must ensure an adequate level of protection, for example, by entering into the EU standard contractual clauses and adopting supplementary measures where applicable, if required. You can obtain a copy of the relevant information on third country transfers by contacting email@example.com.
