What data do Sorainen collect and how is it used?

When you apply for the Shared Mission programme, we collect and process your name, surname, mobile number and e-mail address, and any other information that you provide to us which may include or constitute personal data.

We will process this data on the basis of our legitimate interests to effectively manage the Shared Mission programme, to analyse submissions in order to determine which applicants fit the programme’s criteria, and to contact the applicants.

If you do not provide the requested data, we may not be able to analyse your submission for the Shared Mission programme and contact you accordingly.

Who may access your data

Your personal data may be disclosed:

  • to Sorainen employees and lawyers at Sorainen offices in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Belarus who are in contact with you or who are responsible for marketing;
  • to Sorainen third party service providers, including marketing firms, information technology service providers, auditing firms and others, as far as necessary to manage our marketing communications.

There is no decision by the European Commission to recognise the level of data protection in Belarus as adequate. Therefore, the Sorainen Office in Belarus has access to personal data on the basis of an agreement between Sorainen Belarus and other Sorainen offices. This conforms to the Standard Contractual clauses approved by the European Commission. Control over private data including servers is executed in the territory of EU. You may ask Sorainen to inspect the copy of the agreement by contacting the Sorainen Data Protection Officer.

How long does Sorainen store data?

We will process your personal data during the period of implementation of the Shared Mission programme and for 3 months thereafter.
