4. Grounds for processing personal data

In order to be allowed to process your personal data, there must be a legitimate basis for doing so. In the case of SYMSON this legitimate basis will be – depending on the type of personal data concerned – performance of an agreement, a legitimate interest that does not outweigh your privacy interests or consent. If you do not provide certain personal data, you may not be allowed to fully benefit from all website functionality.

5. To whom does SYMSON issue personal data?

In order to perform our services to you, we enlist the services of other parties to process personal data on our behalf. If we instruct a third party to process personal data on our behalf and we have and retain control over the processing, we will sign a written processing agreement with the third party concerned (the 'processor'). That document will lay down agreements on such points as the objective, the duration and scope of the processing, the retention times and the security measures for the personal data.

6. Processing personal data outside of the EU

SYMSON will endeavour to process your data solely within the European Union by saving your data on a server located in the EU wherever possible. Sometimes this will not be possible, e.g. if we supply data to a university outside of the EU after obtaining your consent. When we enlist the services of data processing firms, we stipulate that they must save personal data on servers located in the EU. To the extent that this is not possible, we take the requisite measures to provide a suitable level of protection to ensure that your personal data is secure.

7. Your rights with regard to personal data

You are entitled, under certain circumstances, to access any personal data processed by us or to have it corrected or deleted or restrict its processing. Sometimes you can also lodge an objection or request a transfer of your personal data. To submit a request to us in this respect, please contact us by sending an email to support@symson.com. If in doubt about your identity, we are entitled to ask you to provide proof of your identity first.


We need to process personal data for the purposes of fulfilling certain contractual obligations.

Legitimiate interest

We have an interest in being in a position to carry out certain surveys and to send direct marketing messages or to contact you by phone. On the grounds of these interests, we will process your personal data unless your privacy interests outweigh our interests.


If none of the aforementioned bases for processing apply, then we will request your consent to process certain personal data. You are free to withdraw your consent at any time.

8. How do we secure your personal data?

We have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to prevent loss or unlawful processing of personal data. For example, your personal data can only be viewed by staff authorized to view it on the grounds of their role.

9. How long do we keep your personal data?

We will not keep your personal data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which we use it. We are required by law to keep some data for a certain period of time. Wherever possible, we will pseudonymised or anonymize your personal data to the fullest extent possible.
