If you do not wish to receive any communication, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (unsubscribe from all communications).

6. For how much time do we preserve the personal data?

We keep your personal data for as long as we need it for the purpose for which we process your personal data, to meet your needs or to comply with our legal obligations.

We use the following criteria to determine the retention period:

  • Personal data obtained when contracting services: Establish that there is personal data, especially contact data (email, telephone, among others) that may have been collected based on a professional, contractual assignment or relational activity (accreditable) as a basis for legitimisation that will not be deleted, unless expressly cancelled or positioned by the holder through the channels determined for this purpose;
  • Personal data obtained when contacting us for an enquiry: It will be kept for the time necessary to deal with your enquiry. Depending on the purpose of the enquiry, it may be stored permanently;
  • Personal data collected when you create an account: until you ask us to delete it or after a period of inactivity (no active interaction) of three (3) years;
  • Personal data obtained when you consent to receive marketing communications from us: until you unsubscribe, ask us to delete it or after a period of inactivity (no active interaction) of three years;
  • Cookies downloaded on your computer: we store them for as long as necessary to achieve their purpose (e.g. session ID cookies) and for a maximum of 365 days;

We may retain your personal data in order to comply with our legal obligations, as well as to exercise our rights (e.g. claims before the courts or others arising from "compliance policies" established by the implementation of plans in the companies that are part of STANDARDS in order to ensure their maintenance and monitoring, as well as actions arising from external proceedings/courts or internal proceedings/audits).

7. How do we protect your data?

We implement and maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR 2016/679, as well as those referenced in appropriate "ISO" security standards (such as 27001) to protect the personal data we process and to detect unauthorised access and avoid its alteration, dissemination, loss or destruction.

8. To whom can we communicate your data?

It may be communicated or given access to data to third parties, to companies or self-employed service providers acting as data processors.

Occasionally, for the performance of services, we may contract with third parties (suppliers, subcontractors, etc.) who assist us in marketing, management and maintenance, provide us with consulting services and cloud hosting services (please note that we are aware of the EU ruling that invalidates the agreement associated with the "privacy shield" with the USA, and we are working on this situation in accordance with the recommendations of the Spanish Data Protection Agency). Our suppliers are contractually obliged to maintain the confidentiality and security of the information received and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for STANDARDS. These third parties act as "processors", and consequently are not subject to the request for consent derived from the basis of legitimation established by the parties through contract or service order.

At times, these third parties may require access to some or all of your data. When this happens, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data will be treated securely, safely, and in accordance with your rights and our obligations.

Apart from the above, STANDARDS does not share the personal data provided by our users/clients with third parties, except when we are legally obliged to do so, when we are required to do so by a competent authority or administration or to protect a person's vital interests.

9. What are your rights when you provide us with your data?

The regulatory framework, and therefore this officer, recognises the following rights (and others that may be incorporated in the event of development or regulatory modifications):

  • Access rights: The right to obtain confirmation whether STANDARDS process your personal data, and access to processed data.
  • Portability right: Whenever STANDARDS processes personal data by automated means on the basis of your consent or a contract, the user/customer has the right to obtain a copy of his/her data in a structured, of common use and machine-readable format transferred to his/her name or to a third party.
  • Rectification right: The right to rectify inaccurate or incomplete personal data.
  • Removal or omission right: The right to obtain the removal of any personal data that STANDARDS processes at any time, except in situations such as the following: you have an unpaid debt, enquiry or complaint. If your relationship has been contractual in nature, we will retain your personal data for tax and accounting purposes.
  • Right to object to the processing of data: Right to object to the processing of personal data in relation to the legitimate interest of STANDARDS. We will not further process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of claims.
  • The right to object to receiving commercial and marketing communications: Users may unsubscribe at any time by simply following the instructions at the bottom of the body of each electronic communication sent by STANDARDS.
  • The right to file a complaint to a control authority: You have the right to file a complaint to the competent data protection authority if you believe that STANDARDS is processing your data incorrectly.

We remind you that STANDARDS has the services of a professional and external Data Protection Delegate: Consultoria y Asesoría Jurídica "Quality Data LOPD", with whom you can contact through the following e-mail address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
