If you give us an order to provide our services, we process personal data if and insofar as this is necessary for the execution of the order.
Usenet.Pro, for example, uses your contact details to keep you informed via newsletters and commercial e-mails.
Usenet.Pro uses service providers (processors) to process personal data: they process personal data on behalf of Usenet.Pro. Usenet.Pro enters into a processing agreement that meets the AVG requirements with these processors.
For example, Usenet.Pro works with ICT service providers that provide software (software as a service) or hosting services. Other ICT service providers offer us support in keeping our systems safe and stable. We also use third-party services for sending newsletters and commercial e-mails.

In some instances, it is necessary to pass on personal data to parties located outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Depending on the circumstances of the case, this may be necessary for the execution of your purchase agreement.
Usenet.Pro retains personal data it processes no longer than is necessary for the processing or as is required by law.
