    1. The main purpose of Carboncloud’s processing of personal data is to enable Carboncloud to offer its services in full, provide information about the services and market the services. Carboncloud may however also process personal data due to a legal obligation (e.g. when Carboncloud must save the data according to accounting rules), or in order to defend Carboncloud against legal claims.
      
    2. The collection and processing of personal data in order to provide, market, or inform about Carboncloud’s services is made on the legal basis of either the data subjects approval, a contractual obligation between the data subject and Carboncloud (or Carboncloud’s principal if applicable), or an existing legal obligation for Carboncloud (or Carboncloud’s principal if applicable). Exceptions are made for cases where a prior consent is not possible for practical reasons, the processing of the data is permitted by law, and when Carboncloud has a legitimate interest in processing the personal data (e.g. for marketing, follow-up of the services, or for exercising or defending Carboncloud against legal claims) according to a so called balance of interests.
      
    3. The collection and processing of personal data in order to comply with legal obligations or in order to defend Carboncloud against legal claims is made on the legal basis of the legal obligation or a balance of interests.

  4. SHARING OF PERSONAL DATA TO THIRD PARTIES
    
    1. Carboncloud will not share personal data with any third party in any other way than what follows from this privacy policy, unless Carboncloud is given prior consent from the data subject, or unless Carboncloud is obliged to do so following the applicable regulations or unless the personal data is shared in connection with an ongoing legal-, administrative- or recovery procedure in which the data subject and Carboncloud are both parties.
      
    2. Carboncloud may use subcontractors for the processing of personal data (so called personal data assistants). Carboncloud may also need to use the subcontractor’s services to store personal data.

    3. Carboncloud requires all subcontractors to (i) protect personal data in accordance with this privacy policy and (ii) not use or disclose personal data for any purpose other than to provide the agreed upon services to Carboncloud.
