In addition, certain data is collected automatically as a result of the User’s actions on the site (see the paragraph on cookies).

Recipients of the data

The personal data collected is intended for MailConnect’s commercial and accounting departments. It may be transmitted to MailConnect’s subsidiaries, or to third-party data processors which MailConnect is authorized to use within the context of the performance of its Services.

In this context, personal data may be transferred to an EU or non-EU country. MailConnect implements guarantees ensuring the protection and security of this data, in compliance with applicable rules and regulations.

MailConnect does not transfer or rent personal data to third parties for marketing purposes without the express consent of the Users of MailConnect.

In addition, personal data may only be disclosed to third parties for purposes other than marketing in the following cases:
 
  • with their authorisation;
  • at the request of the competent legal authorities, upon judicial request, or in the context of a legal dispute.

Thus, personal data collected by MailConnect relating to the identity and contact details of its Users is retained for a maximum period of two years after the termination of the contractual relationship for Users that are customers, or from their collection by the data controller or the last contact from the Users that are prospects, for the data relating to the latter.

The termination of the contractual relationship is understood as the express termination of the contract by the User, or the non-use of MailConnect Services for a period of five years.

The Users also have the right to request the limitation of the processing, and to oppose on legitimate grounds the processing of their personal data. The User may also communicate instructions on the fate of their personal data in the event of their death.

Where applicable, the User may request the portability of their personal data or, where the legal basis for the processing is consent, withdraw their consent at any time.

The Users may exercise their rights by sending an email to privacy@mailconnect.in:

These requests shall be processed within a maximum period of 30 days.
