We only collect the required personal data for specific purposes, which you can read more about below, and we delete the data once the legitimate purpose of processing it ceases to exist. You can read more about that too.

In connection with the processing of personal data, the data subject has a number of rights, which are described at the end of this document. 

2. Which types of personal data do we process?

When you wish to receive our newsletters by email or to be contacted by one of our employees, we will collect the following personal data as needed:

  • Name 
  • Email address
  • Telephone number
  • Place of work/company
  • Department 
  • Title 
  • Area of interest 

When you subscribe to our newsletter, we also collect statistical information about the articles you read, how many times you read them etc.

The purpose of processing this data is, on the one hand, to be able to contact you as required, and on the other, to be able to send newsletters by email to you for as long as you wish, and to produce newsletters that have your interest.

In general, you yourself provide the data we collect about you, and this is general data as defined by the terminology of the EU GDPR. 

The legal basis for collecting the mentioned data is:

  • When wishing to be contacted – point b of Art. 6(1) and point f of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR.
  • Newsletters - point f of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR.

You may inform us at any time that you no longer wish to receive these newsletters by email – you do that by unsubscribing from the mailing list in one of the newsletters or by sending an email to 

We do not pass on your data on to any third party.

We use MailChimp, an American company, when preparing and distributing our newsletters by email. As a consequence, MailChimp is the data processor for Decotron. Your data is processed via the MailChimp server in the USA, and MailChimp is covered by Privacy Shield. 

We keep your personal data for as long as it is necessary in relation to the stated purposes.

Your data will be deleted from MailChimp no longer than 6 months after you unsubscribe from our newsletters by email.

In relation to the personal data we receive when you ask us to contact you via the website, the time of deleting depends on what happens afterwards. If we initiate cooperation, your data will, as a minimum, be kept for the period that the cooperation lasts. In other instances, your data will be kept for a period, the length of which we cannot state at the present moment. The criteria we take into account when determining how long we will keep your data, depends, among other things, on whether we find that it is still relevant to be able to contact you.
