The personal data we process relating to you is collected directly from you when you use our Devices.
We only process your personal data to the extent permitted in accordance with applicable data protection legislation. This means inter alia that we need to have a legal basis for the purposes for our processing of your personal data, which in our context generally means one of the following legal bases.
Performance of a contract – the processing is necessary in order for us to provide you with our services or otherwise perform a contract between us (this applies if you conduct your business in a sole proprietorship), or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract.
If you are acting on behalf of someone else, e.g., in the capacity of representative of a company (which usually is the case), our processing is carried out with reference to our legitimate interest balanced against your interests or fundamental rights or freedoms, where our legitimate interest is to conclude and perform the contract with the company you represent.
Performance of legal obligations – the processing is necessary in order to fulfil our legal obligations according to law or other statutes that we are subject to, or if we are subject to orders or decisions by courts or authorities, which require us to process your personal data.
Legitimate interests – the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, provided that they are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights or freedoms (in which case the processing would not be allowed).
Consent – the processing is carried out with your prior consent, where we inter alia are responsible for clearly informing you of what processing you consent to and your right to withdraw your consent in relation to our continued processing.
Below, we explain more about the categories of personal data we process, for what purposes we process them and what legal bases we rely on when processing your personal data, including for how long we store your personal data.

|How long we keep your data:|
|We will keep your personal data for as long as you use our Devices, however not longer than for a period of two (2) years.|
In addition to the processing purposes listed above, we may be required to process personal data for additional purposes. This might be to tell you about changes to our terms, conditions and policies or to share personal data with authorities, if we are required to do so by law or with your consent.
We may also be required to keep certain personal data for longer periods of time e.g., to be able to establish, exercise, and/or defend against legal claims. We will generally process such personal data for ten (10) years from creation or for the time necessary to fulfil the purpose in the relevant case. This processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest of establishing and/or defending legal claims.
Additionally, we may also be required to process personal data to comply with legal obligations e.g., relating to bookkeeping or tax legislation, or if we are ordered to process personal data (including disclosing it) by a competent court or government authority.
Handheld is committed to safeguard your privacy and personal data and have taken measures to ensure that your personal data is handled in a safe way. For example, we encrypt all data transferred via our website using secure socket layer technology (HTTPS/SSL).
Additionally, we will never store any personal data locally. Access to systems where personal data is stored is limited to our employees and service providers who require it in the course of their duties. Such parties are informed of the importance of maintaining security and confidentiality in relation to the personal data we process. We maintain appropriate safeguards and security standards to protect your personal data against unauthorised access, disclosure or misuse. We also monitor our systems to discover vulnerabilities.
We strive to always process your personal data within the EU or EEA. However, if a third country transfer is described in the tables under section 4 above, we will transfer your personal data, to service providers who, either themselves or by their sub-contractors, are located or have business activities in a country outside the EU or EEA. In such cases, we are responsible for ensuring that the transfer is made in accordance with applicable data protection legislation before it occurs, e.g., by ensuring that the country in which the recipient is located ensures an adequate level of data protection according to the European Commission, or by ensuring appropriate safeguards based on the use of standard contractual clauses that the European Commission has adopted and other appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms.
You may access a list of the countries that the European Commission has decided provide an adequate level of data protection at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.htm.
