Legitimate Interest Summary
Primarily, FortifyIQ collects, receives and processes personal information of individuals, exclusively in a business context, in order to contact them about goods and services in which their business may be interested.
This information is processed by FortifyIQ in accordance with its (and its customer’s) legitimate interests except when the data subject’s fundamental rights and liberties which require personal data protection prevail. “Legitimate Interest” is our chosen legal basis for processing the Personal Data of Brazilian citizens. (LGPD Article 7, IX).
Based on an individual’s role and responsibilities within their organization, as well as being a decision maker, recommender or influencer within their organization, we may contact them occasionally with marketing offers or useful educational information relevant to them directly as well as on behalf of our Customers. They will always have the right to opt out of receiving marketing offers from us.
We follow the principle of data minimization, ensuring the personal data collected is kept to a minimum (LGPD Article 6, III). The Personal Data we process is restricted to Business Card Information of corporate employees who are appropriate to the service/product we would be marketing to them. (See LGPD Article 10, §1). An extensive assessment has been completed, ensuring the personal data we process does not disproportionally affect the privacy rights of the Business Card Owner. We practice transparency by clearly informing all Business Card Owners that we are processing their personal data, and for what purposes (LGPD Articles 6, IV and 10, §2). We provide a simple and clear route for Business Card Owners to obtain a copy of the personal data we process, and to remove permission to process their personal data (Art.19, §3). We keep the data up to date (LGPD Article, III).
