Processing of personal data of the affiliate (and if applicable of any other natural person associated with the affiliate) is based on

Silversquare Group is committed to guaranteeing a high level of protection of personal data.
Within the limits of the applicable legislation, any natural person may access their data processed by the Controller (and if applicable, by Silversquare Group companies within the EEA), and, if applicable, request rectification or deletion of their personal data, or even oppose processing thereof, or request limitation of processing of their personal data, and obtain a copy thereof. Furthermore, they are entitled to receive the personal data supplied in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format, and to pass on these data to another controller (right to data portability). They may exercise these rights at any time, free of charge, by way of an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org.

They may exercise these rights at any time, free of charge, by way of an e-mail request to email@example.com. It shall be dealt with within the statutory deadlines.
There is no legal provision obliging the affiliate to answer questions asked by Silversquare Group, however depending on the circumstances, failure to answer may result in Silversquare Group being unable or unwilling to enter into a (pre-)contractual relationship, continue such a relationship or execute an operation requested by the affiliate or by a third party on the affiliate’s behalf.
The personal data communicated by the affiliate are treated by the Controller in the strictest confidentiality, and in compliance with applicable regulations.
