When you use our services, your data may be shared with us or third parties. This Privacy Policy is important for you to understand how your personal data is collected, used, consulted or otherwise processed when you use Breaking Point.
Personal data is any information about you that can be used to identify you, or make identification possible. This Privacy Policy applies to your personal data processing on Breaking Point, and not to data processing that may occur on other services or web pages, regardless of whether they are provided by the owner of Breaking Point or anyone else. The owner of Breaking Point (‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’) is:

This Privacy Policy is effective as of Jan 2020. This Privacy Policy may occasionally be modified.
Essential modifications are those that affect your rights, obligations and state with regards to the protection and processing of your personal data. The essential modifications may include, but are not limited to, the launch of new services or deployment of new technologies. Therefore, if we make essential modifications to the Privacy Policy, we will send you a notice through our Services, or by other means and give you the opportunity to review the changes before they become effective.
Minor modifications are those that do not impact your rights, obligations and state with regards to the protection of your personal data. These types of modifications may include, but are not limited to, organisational and grammatical changes to this Privacy Policy in order to make our policy easier to read. The fact that you continue to use our Services after we publish the updated Privacy Policy means that the processing of your personal data is subject to the updated Privacy Policy with only minor modifications.

2. Data Controller and Data Subjects

By using Breaking Point services you may disclose various pieces of information, including those that would be considered personal data. When your personal data is processed, then you are considered a data subject and you are entitled to exercise your rights guaranteed by the EU Data Protection Law and as explained in this Privacy Policy. Taking into account that we determine the purposes and means of processing personal data on Breaking Point, we are legally considered a data controller over your personal data on this website. Being a data controller provides us with the opportunity to process your personal data, but also obligates us to protect them in the way regulated by the EU Data Protection Law, particularly by the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) and this Privacy Policy.

3. Which, how and why we process your data

5. How we protect your data

We do not collect personal data in an excessive manner and we only process the data that we actually need. We are committed to keeping your data up to date and securely stored. We do not process your data for a period longer than it is necessary for the purposes for which data is processed.
We use technical and organisational measures in accordance with good industry practice to safeguard your information. Thus, we take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of your personal data against accidental or unlawful loss, alteration, theft, unauthorised disclosure or access, unauthorised use and against all other unlawful forms of processing.

6. Your rights

We fully respect all of your rights granted by the GDPR and European Data Protection Law. If you would like to exercise your rights (explained in more details below), please contact us via this form.

6.1 Right to access

You have the right to obtain the confirmation from us as to whether or not personal data concerning you is being processed and, where applicable, to request access to the data.

6.2 Right to rectification

You have the right to ask us to delete inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the data processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed and inaccurate data corrected.

6.3 Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)

In limited circumstances you have the right to request that we erase the information we hold about you. These are as follows:
Where the data is no longer needed for the purposes it was collected
Where you have withdrawn consent for the processing of your data and there is no other lawful basis on which we can continue to process your data
Where you objected to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds to continue with the processing
Where the data has been unlawfully processed
Where the data has to be erased for the purpose of the compliance with a legal obligation.

6.4 Right to restrict processing

You have the right to seek the restriction of the processing of your personal data in the following circumstances:
If the accuracy of the data is contested, processing may be restricted for the period necessary to allow us to verify its accuracy
The processing is unlawful and you request restriction instead of erasure
We no longer need the data for the purposes it was collected, but you need it in connection with a legal claim
If you objected to the processing of your personal data while awaiting the verification on whether our legitimate interests for the processing of your data overrides the interest of your fundamental rights and freedoms.

6.5 Right to object to the processing of your data

At any time, you have the right to object to our processing of your data on grounds relating to your particular situation. Upon your objection, we will stop processing your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for continuing with the processing which override interests of your fundamental freedoms and rights, or if further processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
At any time you have the right not to be evaluated on the basis of automated processing. We use several tools for automated decision making, including profiling for direct marketing purposes. We currently do not offer an option to opt-out from data processing carried out by these tools.

6.7 Right to data portability

Under certain circumstances you have the right to receive your personal data which you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format (i.e. in digital form) and you have the right to request the transmission of those data to another entity without hindrance from us, if such transmission is technically feasible.
If the ground for processing your personal data is your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time without providing us with any reason and without any charge to you. Please be aware that after withdrawal of the consent we will not be able to process your data and, consequently, we will not be able to offer some services.

6.9 Right to lodge a complaint

If you feel that your personal data rights have been breached, you have the right to lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority. The relevant data protection authority in the United States or EU Member States may be determined either by your place of habitual residence, your workplace or the place where the alleged infringement emerged.

We may share your data with third parties.
Entities who help us to regularly provide and further develop our services (e.g. analytics, maintenance, marketing and development). They are allowed to process your information as reasonably necessary in order to perform delegated tasks. Please be aware that only we determine the purpose and means of the processing of your data, as well as deciding which of your data is going to be processed to perform delegated tasks.
Public authorities and law enforcement agencies where it is necessary to do so and where we are legally required or permitted to do so.

9. Transfer of your data to third countries

We may transfer your personal data outside the United States or the European Economic Area in order to provide our services on a regular basis and/or to develop our services further.
