Proshank Design processes personal data as an employer, as a supplier of services, for marketing purposes and in connection with visits to this website. 

As the controller, Proshank Design processes personal data for the following main purposes:

(i) Customer and supplier information

Proshank Design processes personal data regarding customers and suppliers as well as any third parties required for the performance of contractual obligations. This personal information may be exchanged between the various legal entities within Eastern Shipping, but will not be disclosed to other businesses unless otherwise stated in the service contracts.

The information being processed is the contact information for customers and suppliers.
Personal data is stored in a separate database and deleted five years after the completion of the customer relationship.

The legal basis for this processing is that the processing is necessary for fulfilling a contract or that it is in our legitimate interest to meet requests and to improve our business and services and these interests are not overridden by the rights to data protection.

(ii) Marketing

Proshank Design processes personal data for marketing purposes. This personal information may be exchanged between the various legal entities within Proshank Design, but will not be disclosed to other businesses.

Proshank Design processes the contact information of potential customers in a separate database. The information is obtained from publicly available sources, such as the websites of companies, or from direct contact with the company in question. The purpose of this processing of personal data is to promote marketing for our services and coordinate this marketing effort.

The legal basis for the above processing is that Proshank Design has a legitimate interest in contacting potential customers to promote our services, and in our opinion, this interest is not overridden by the interests of the data subject. Reference is here made to the fact that we only process contact information relating to the data subjects position at his/her employer.

Personal data relating to potential customers will be deleted within one year after they were added to the database, unless a customer relationship is established – or consent to further storage is given.
