Where required under applicable law, we have carried out balancing tests for the data processing based on our or a third party’s legitimate interests to ensure that such legitimate interest is not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms. For more information on our balancing tests, you may contact us as set out in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
We will not subject you to a decision based solely on automated processing that produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you, unless you explicitly consented to the processing, the processing is necessary for entering into, or performance of a contract between you and Truata, or when we are legally required to use your Personal Data in this way, for example to prevent fraud.

Features and Links to Other Sites
You may choose to use certain features or services for which we partner with other entities, or click on links on our websites or platforms to other sites for your convenience and information. These features may operate independently from Truata. They may have their own privacy policies, which we strongly suggest you review. To the extent any features or linked sites you visit are not owned or operated by Truata, we are not responsible for their content or privacy practices.
Processing in the context of the Anonymization Solution
To provide customers with our Anonymization Solution, we obtain de-identified data from our customers and apply further de-identification techniques to anonymize it. We apply analytics on the anonymized data to provide our customers with anonymized information such as compilations, analyses, analytical and predictive models and rules, and other aggregated reports. We only share such information with the relevant customer or with an entity which has been duly authorised by the relevant customer to access and process that information on their behalf. More information is available here.
Truata relies on the legitimate interest legal ground to anonymize the data we receive from our customers. The types of data collected vary depending on the customer. For more information or to exercise your rights in relation to the data we receive from our customers, please contact the relevant customer.
We maintain appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Data in our possession. For example we use SSL encryption on our website from which we transfer certain Personal Data and we also restrict access to Personal Data about you to those employees who need to know that information to operate our business.
We also take measures to delete your Personal Data or keep it in a form that does not permit identifying you when this information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which we process it, unless we are required by law to keep this information for a longer period. When determining the retention period, we take into account various criteria, such as the type of products and services requested by or provided to you, the nature and length of our relationship with you, the impact on the services we provide to you if we delete some information from or about you, mandatory retention periods provided by law and the statute of limitations.
International Data Transfers
We comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate safeguards for the transfer of Personal Data to countries other than the country where you are located. In particular, we may transfer Personal Data to countries for which adequacy decisions have been issued, use contractual protections for the transfer of Personal Data to third parties, such as the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses, or rely on third parties’ certification’s to valid and enforceable internationally agreed personal data transfer frameworks where applicable. You may contact us as specified in the “How to Contact Us” section below to obtain a copy of the safeguards we use to transfer Personal Data outside of the European Economic Area.
