 General privacy principles

Personal data and controller of personal data

Personal data comprises all information that directly or indirectly can be referred to a natural person who is alive, e.g. name, postal address, e-mail address and phone number. A controller of personal data is the natural or legal person who processes personal data and who decides why and how such data shall be processed.


Collection of personal data via our website contact card

Personal data that you submit to Affilinks on our contact card on our websites for which Affilinks is controller may be provided by you to us e.g. in the following situations:

  • As part of our sales efforts, we may collect and store data through online forms for contact purposes;
  • If you are a prospect Client, you may provide us with personal data through this Site when applying to join our network;
  • You may provide us with personal data when you send us inquiries relating to our services or in relation to this Privacy Policy. The collection of personal data is based on legitimate interest according to the above and for the performance of a contract to which you and Affilinks are the parties.


Use of personal data

Affilinks is committed to protect any personal data you provide to us and to process your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable laws.

Personal data provided to Affilinks may be used for the following purpose: direct marketing. The legal ground for Affilinks to process and store your personal data is legitimate interest. The personal data is stored as long as the data subject is considered to be a prospect and deleted when not needed anymore. The personal data provided by you on our contact card is currently stored in the UK.

Disclosure and transfer of personal data 

Personal data may be transferred to other companies within the Affilinks group of companies. Affilinks may as a consequence of service agreements with third parties, also transfer personal data to such third parties who process personal data on behalf of Affilinks. Such service agreements including data processing agreements shall contain obligations for third parties to process data only in accordance with applicable data protection laws and to take appropriate measures to secure that the processing of the personal data is secure.
For any of the purposes described herein, personal data may be transferred to Affilinks’s business partners within or outside the EU/EEA or in a third country declared as offering an adequate level of 3 protection through a European Commission decision (‘Adequacy Decision’), meaning that data can be transferred with another company in that third country without the data exporter being required to provide further safeguards or being subject to additional conditions. In other words, the transfers to an ‘adequate’ third country will be comparable to a transmission of data within the EU, like the UK for example. Should any of the recipients reside in a country without adequate legal protection for personal data, Affilinks will make sure the recipient adopt appropriate safeguards and enter contractual arrangements with the recipient of the personal data, using, for example, the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission.

Right to information and rectification of personal data


Affilinks will take reasonable measures to rectify incorrect information, block or erase personal data without undue delay. You also have the right to contact Affilinks in order to object the processing. Part 3 of this Privacy Policy contains information about who you should contact if you would like us to correct or delete personal data that we hold on you.

To the extent required by law, we will inform you about Affilinks’s processing of your personal data in connection with the initial collection or registration of your personal data.

You may request a copy of the personal data that Affilinks holds about you (“Subject Access Request”). This information will include information regarding what personal data Affilinks processes about you, where such information has been collected, for which purpose the information is being processed, and to whom, or to which categories of persons, the information is being disclosed. Contact information for Subject Access Request is set out in Part 3 of this Privacy Policy.

Destruction of personal data


Any personal data that we hold on you is only stored as long as it is required for us to keep them in order to fulfill the purposes for which they were collected.


 Affilinks is dedicated to maintain the security of personal data and preventing unauthorized access through the implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures, as far as is reasonably possible. Such security measures also include that personal data may be accessed only by a limited number of persons within Affilinks.
Our employees are made aware of and must comply with Affilinks’s security standards. When we occasionally use third-party contractors to perform tasks that might otherwise be performed by our employees, these contractors are contractually bound to similar restrictions as our employees.
