Your personal data may be transferred, stored and accessed within the European Economic Area ("EEA") or transferred to, stored in, and accessed from countries outside the EEA in order to fulfil the purposes described in this Privacy Statement. For transfers to countries outside the EEA, the data protection regime may be different than in the country in which you are located and will therefore be based on a legally adequate transfer method. Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is given to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

Where the country has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission. For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries.

We may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.

Where service providers are based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.

We will provide you on request a list of the countries located outside the EEA to which personal data may be transferred, and an indication of whether they have been determined by the European Commission to grant adequate protection to personal data. Where applicable, you are entitled, upon request to receive a copy of the relevant safeguard (for example, EC model contractual clauses) that have been taken to protect personal data during such transfer.


We are committed to maintaining the security of your personal data we process. We maintain appropriate physical, procedural, organisational and technical security measures intended to prevent loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, or modification of your personal data under our control. If you have reason to believe that your personal data is no longer secure, please notify us immediately using the contact information supplied in Section 13 below (Contact Us).


We retain your personal data for no longer than is allowed under applicable Data Protection Legislation and, in any case, no longer than such personal data is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected or otherwise processed, unless a longer retention period is required by applicable law. This means that your personal data will be processed as necessary for establishing, performing and terminating your relationship with us and will thereafter be retained until applicable limitation periods have been passed and in order to comply with statutory retention obligations under applicable law (such as retention obligations arising under commercial and tax law).


To the extent required by applicable law, you are entitled to obtain information on the processing of your personal data, to object to processing of your personal data, make use of your right to data portability and to have your personal data rectified or deleted or their processing restricted. You also are entitled to withdraw any consent that you might have given with respect to the processing of your personal data at any time with future effect. These are known as "Data Subject Rights." More information regarding each of your Data Subject Rights can be found below.

If you would like to exercise your Data Subjects Rights or learn more about the processing of your personal data, please contact us using the information provided below under Section 13 below (Contact Us). We will respond to your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable, but in any case within the legally required period of time.

If you are not satisfied with our response or believe that your personal data is not being processed in accordance with the law, you also may contact or lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority or seek other remedies under applicable law.


We strive to maintain your personal data in a manner that is accurate, complete and up to date. However, you have an obligation to keep your personal data up to date and inform us of any significant changes to your personal data. Please contact us using the contact details listed in Section 13 below (Contact Us) below if there are any changes in your personal data.

You are entitled to obtain confirmation from us as to whether any personal data concerning you is processed by Iterum.

This includes the right to access such personal data, to obtain a copy of it free of charge (except for repetitive or excessive requests) and to be provided with a description of main features of the processing implemented in relation to your personal data, including:

  • purposes of such processing,
  • categories of personal data concerned,

    • information relating to any third party source of personal data if the data were not collected from you; and
    • the existence, the logic involved, the significance and the consequences of any automated decisions, including profiling.

Where personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, you will be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to such transfer.

Right to Rectification You have the right to obtain from Iterum without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate, incomplete or outdated personal data concerning you.
Right to Erasure

You have the right to obtain from Iterum without undue delay the erasure of your personal data in one of the following cases:

  • such personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose(s) for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
  • you withdraw the consent on which the processing was based, and there are no other legal grounds for the processing;
  • you object to the processing, as provided below;
  • your personal data has been unlawfully processed;
  • your personal data has to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in EU or EU Member State law.

Iterum may refuse the erasure of personal data if the processing of such data is necessary for:

  • exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by EU or EU Member State law or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest;
  • reasons of public interest in the area of public health;
  • archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes; or
  • establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Right to Restriction

You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data in the following cases:

  • where you claim inaccuracy of your personal data processed by us (the restriction being provided for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy);
  • where the processing appears unlawful, and you oppose the erasure and request the restriction of use of your personal data instead;
  • where Iterum does not need such personal data for the purposes of processing, but such personal data is required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and
  • where an objection is raised by you in relation to the processing, pending verification as to whether the legitimate grounds of Iterum override those of you.

When you have obtained from us a restriction of processing of your personal data, you will be informed by us prior to lifting such restriction.

Right to Object

As a general matter, you have the right to object, at any time and on legitimate grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data.

Provided that such objection is justified, we will no longer process the personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests.

Right to Data Portability

Where the processing is based on your consent, and where such processing is carried out by automated means, you can request from us:

  • to communicate to you the personal data concerning you, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, in order to be able to further transmit such personal data to another data controller, or (ii) to directly transmit such personal data to such other data controller, if technically feasible.
Right to Withdraw Consent

Where the processing of your personal data is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Right to lodge a complaint

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
