II. How We Collect and Use Your Personal Data
BumOne collects personally identifiable information in the following ways:

When a company joins as a member of BumOne or subscribes to our BumOne Mailing list, we collect business contact data in the form of the following data from you:
First and last name
Work email address
Area of interest (e.g. sustainability, climate etc.)
All personal data collected will only be used to process your membership application and to send you product information and occasional special offers or announcements from selected BumOne partners, if you have subscribed to the BumOne Mailing List. We do not sell personal data to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of BumOne services.
We rely on fulfillment of contract as the lawful basis under GDPR Article 6(1)(b) for the processing of member and client data.
Website Visitors’ and App Users’ Data
In general, website visitors do not need to provide personalized information to BumOne. We do collect "aggregate data," that is, group data with no personal identifiers. We use this aggregate data to help us understand how the site is being used and to improve its usability. We also use it to enhance the quality and availability of products and services we offer.
We also, with explicit permission, use aggregate data from online surveys you choose to fill out for research and publication purposes.
If personal data is provided, and retained, it is only name, email, and phone number, which allow BumOne to contact the visitor at his or her organization. BumOne solely holds the information and engages in no contact-sharing program with other organizations.
Many websites create Cookies (small text files) when a user visits a website, and these Cookies are used to analyze aggregate user behavior on a website. In compliance with the EU ePrivacy Directive,
BumOne websites ask permission of the visitor prior to setting Cookies. Should the visitor agree,
BumOne’s server will only collect the following information:
The visitor’s IP address (including the domain name associated with the IP address, i.e. using reverse look-up).
The date and time of the visit to the website.
The pages visited on the website.
The browser being used.
In addition, where this is available, BumOne will also collect:
The country from which the visitor is accessing the website (only the ending is saved, e.g., since this indicates the relevant country).
The language of the browser being used.
The website from which the visitor is accessing the BumOne website.
The search word used (if the site is accessed via a search engine).
The type of connection and operating system.
When it comes to Cookies, we rely on consent given as the lawful basis under GDPR Article 6(1)(a).
When you send an inquiry to us through our contact form, we use the personal data that you have stated in the contact form to answer you. Any personal data received from you will not be used for any other purpose without your prior consent and knowledge and will not be disclosed.
We rely on a legitimate interest as the lawful basis under GDPR Article 6(1)(f) for the processing of data in connection to inquiries.
In order to ensure that the services we offer meet your requirements, we may ask for your feedback in form of surveys and polls. Any feedback received from you will only be used for the purpose of improving our services and will not be disclosed.
We rely on your consent as the lawful basis under GDPR Article 6(1)(a) for the processing of data in connection with surveys.

Member and Client Data
We store member company data and contact information of member companies for the duration of the membership with us and for a period of time thereafter to allow members to recover accounts if they decide to renew, to analyze the data for our own operations, and for historical and archiving purposes associated with our history as a membership organization. For more information on where and how long your personal data is stored, and for more information on your rights of erasure and portability, please contact our data protection officer at gdpr@BumOne.org.
Client data, i.e. data collected due to your subscription to our mailing list, will be erased as soon as possible after your deregistration to the mailing list.
Stored until six months after completion of processing of your inquiry.
Stored up to five years after receipt. To the extent possible, we will store your feedback in an anonymous form, and we have a long duration of storage in order to measure our own performance over time.
In general, if we have reason to store your personal data as part of the protection of our legitimate interests, including, for example, legal disputes, we reserve our right to store your personal data for an extended period and minimum until the legal dispute has been determined.

VII. For EU Citizens
File Storage and Security
BumOne partners with a security-cleared data processor to store files and data on secure servers. This data processor has self-certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and thereby guarantees an appropriate standard of data protection and operates to an appropriate standard of data security.
All data is accessed via secure connections in the United States.
In spite of our efforts to establish a secure environment for the website, you should be aware that no information is completely secure on the internet. Therefore, you should always take the necessary safeguards on your own equipment.
You have the right of access to the personal data we are processing concerning you, as well as to have your personal data updated, rectified, or erased, or to obtain a copy of your personal data. All requests shall be made in writing to gdpr@BumOne.org.
Transfer of Personal Data to Third Countries
BumOne partners with various IT vendors and from time to time. This will result in a transfer of personal data to a third country or international organization.
In order to ensure a sufficient level of security for such transfer in accordance with the GDPR,
BumOne has chosen to work only with vendors that:
have certified compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, or
have entered into Standard Contractual Clauses with BumOne.
A copy of the Standard Contractual Clauses can be obtained by contacting gdpr@BumOne.org.
