Personal data is processed by Hellon for the following purposes:

To provide our services, run our business and carry out our contractual obligations

We process personal data in the first place to be able to offer our services to our customers and to run, maintain and develop our business. Personal data may be processed in order to carry out our contractual obligations towards our customers and suppliers and for corresponding with you via email and other communication channels.

For customer and supplier communication and marketing

We may process personal data for the purpose of contacting you regarding our services as well as to market our services e.g. by sending newsletters and event invites.

For quality improvement and trend analysis

We may process information regarding the use of the Website to improve its quality e.g. by analysing any trends in the use of our Website. When possible, we will do this using only aggregated, non-personally identifiable data.

Legitimate grounds for processing

We process personal data mainly to pursue our legitimate interest to maintain and develop customer  and business relationships and to run and develop our business. Furthermore, we process personal data to comply with legal obligations and in some cases, to comply with our contractual obligations towards you.

When choosing to use your data on the basis of our legitimate interests, we weigh our own interests against your right to privacy and e.g. provide you with easy to use opt-out from our marketing communications and use pseudonymized or non-personally identifiable data when possible.

You may be requested to grant your consent for the processing of personal data. When the processing of personal data is based on a consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time.


Hellon stores your personal data primarily within the European Economic Area. However, we have service providers in several geographical locations. As such, we and our service providers may transfer personal data to, or access it in, jurisdictions outside the European Economic Area or your domicile.

We will take steps to ensure that your personal data receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which they are processed. We provide adequate protection for the transfers of personal data to countries outside of the European Economic Area through a series of agreements with our service providers based on the Standard Contractual Clauses or through other appropriate safeguards, such as the Privacy Shield Framework.


We do not share personal data with third parties outside of Hellon’s organization unless one of the following circumstances applies:

For legal reasons and legal processes

We may share personal data with third parties outside Hellon’s organization if access to and use of the personal data is reasonably necessary to: (i) meet any applicable law, regulation, and/or court order; (ii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address crime or security issues.

To authorized service providers

We may share personal data to authorized service providers who perform services for us (including data storage, legal, accounting, sales and marketing services). Our agreements with our service providers include commitments that the service providers agree to limit their use of personal data and to comply with privacy and security standards at least as stringent as the terms of this Privacy Policy.

For other legitimate reasons

If Hellon is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we may transfer personal data to the third party involved. However, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of all personal data. We will give you notice when the personal data are transferred or become subject to a different privacy policy as soon as reasonably possible provided that the transfer concerns your personal data.

With explicit consent

We may share personal data with third parties outside Hellon’s organization for other reasons than the ones mentioned before, when we have your explicit consent to do so. You have the right to withdraw this consent at all times.


Hellon does not store personal data longer than is legally permitted and necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy policy. The storage period depends on the nature of the information and the purposes of processing. The maximum period may therefore vary per use.

Contact Information relating to the use of our services by the customer you work for is typically deleted within a reasonable time after the customer in question no longer uses our services.

Thereafter, a part of the personal data relating to you may be stored only as long as such processing is required by law or is reasonably necessary for our legal obligations or legitimate interests such as claims handling, bookkeeping and direct marketing.

We will store Analytics Data relating to the Website for one year.


Right to access

You have the right to access your personal data processed by us and to request a copy of your personal data undergoing processing.

Right to withdraw consent

In case the processing is based on a consent, you may withdraw the consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Right to erasure

You may also ask us to erase the your personal data from our systems. We will comply with such request unless we have a legitimate ground to not delete the data.

You may object to the processing of personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation if such data are processed for our legitimate interest. In case we do not have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing such personal data, we shall no longer process the personal data after your objection.

In case you consider our processing of personal data to be inconsistent with the applicable data protection laws, a complaint may be lodged with the local supervisory authority for data protection.


We use administrative, organizational, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the personal data we collect and process. Measures include for example, where appropriate, encryption, firewalls, secure facilities and access right systems. Our security controls are designed to maintain an appropriate level of data confidentiality, integrity, availability, resilience and ability restore the data.
