How you interact with us, and the different products and services we offer, or that you are identified in connection with, determines what personal data we collect about you.

The personal data we collect may consist of the following:

Sensitive personal data. We do not process personal data about race or ethnicity; political opinions, or religious or philosophical beliefs; trade union membership; or genetic, biometric, health, or sex-life information (“special categories of personal data” as defined by the European Union General Data Protection Regulation) unless you provide or indicate such information in a user-controlled area of our services, for example a professional profile. We may occasionally collect personal data that are subject to enhanced security requirements, such as requiring a credit card or government-issued ID to complete a transaction you have requested.

8. Data security

omicX maintains appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your personal data from accidental loss and unauthorized access or use. These measures include encryption, firewalls, roles-based data access, intrusion-detection software, and physical access controls to data centers. However, we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse, unauthorized acquisition, or alteration of your data will never occur.

9. Data storage

omicX is a global business, and your data may be transferred to countries with different privacy and data protection laws than your own, including to countries, such as the United States.

As far as possible, we store your information on servers located within the European Economic Area (EEA). However, some of our service providers are located outside of the EEA, and it may be necessary to transfer your personal information for processing in these countries. Some of those countries may have a different regulation on data protection than the European Union. In such cases, we pay special attention to make such data transfers compliant with applicable regulation and put in place equivalent safeguards with respect to the protection of your privacy, fundamental rights and freedoms to the ones offered by the European Union (notably by using Standard Contractual Clauses of the European Commission).

10. Data retention

We undertake to keep your personal information for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which we process them, in accordance with the regulations.

In order to calculate the retention period of your personal data, we use notably the following criteria:

We may have to keep some of your personal data for a longer duration, in an archive file, in order for us to be able to defend in a legal action, until the end of the statute of limitation provided by applicable law.
