We take seriously the protection of your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all visitors to our website are entitled to know that their personal data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party.

We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us. Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.

We gather this data from devices you use to connect to those services, such as computers and mobile phones, using cookies and other internet tracking software. Please refer to our Cookie policy for further details on what cookies are and how we use them.

3. The bases on which we process information about you

The controller of the processing of the personal data is the website operator AV Marketplace SIA. The General Data Protection Regulation states that we are only allowed to use personal information if we have a genuine reason to do so. 

AV Marketplace SIA will only use your personal information for one of the following reasons:
–    To fulfil an agreement, we have with you. When you create an account on our website or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us. In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information. We process this information on the basis there is an agreement between us, or that you have requested us to use the information before we enter into a legal contract.
–    When you consent to it. Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information. Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information, for example, by asking you to agree to our use of cookies.  Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply. We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent, or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
–    When it is in our legitimate interest. Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to: 
     –    whether the same objective could be achieved through other means;
     –    whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm;
     –    whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so.
     For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
     –    record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business;
     –    responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response;
     –    protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party;
     –    insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage business risk;
     –    protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so.
–    When it is our legal duty. We are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation. For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorization such as a court order. This may include your personal information.

4. Specific use of information provided to us

Sending a message to our support team: when you contact us by e-mail, we collect the data you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need. We keep personally identifiable information associated with your message, such as your name and email address so as to be able to track our communications with you to provide a high-quality service.

Complaining: when we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us. We use that information to resolve your complaint.

We are entitled to process personal data also for other purposes if they are necessary for performance of the obligations provided by the law or if such goals are justified for performance of the agreements entered into with and/or between the users.

5. Transfer and disclosure of personal data

–    Persons providing legal assistance in connection with agreements concluded with the users;
–    Persons providing collection of debts and other related services for collection of contractual debts of the user.

We are entitled to transfer your personal data to the third persons in any other case only when there is justified interest for ensuring the performance of the agreements signed with users and the transfer of information does not contradict the law.

6. Information Security and Third Parties

We are taking all necessary measures to ensure the security of personal data and avoid undue access by third parties, unauthorised disclosure, alteration or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
