To provide the Service to you

We may use technical data, and other aggregated and non-personal information to develop and improve the Service, including troubleshooting, data analysis, research, statistical purposes and testing (such as beta testing and evaluation of new features, in line with the fundamental nature of the Service).

5. How we share your personal data
Minna Technologies aims to deliver a great service and user experience. This means sharing information with trusted individuals and companies:
Our employees and consultants
Your personal data will when appropriate be processed by people who work for us, but only by those who are authorized to process your personal data. This means that your personal data only will be processed by people who need it to perform their jobs, for example to provide you with customer or sales support. Our employees and consultants are of course subject to confidentiality.
Our service providers
We may transfer to or share your personal data with our suppliers and subcontractors who help us provide the Service to you and to manage our daily operations. Our suppliers and subcontractors are not authorized by us to use or disclose your personal data except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.
Sometimes legal obligations may require us to share information about you, for example to respond to lawful requests from law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, and other public and government authorities. We may also disclose information if needed to detect and prevent fraud or in connection with a legal process, for example to enforce our terms and conditions or to protect our rights, or the rights of our affiliates, you or others.

6. Where we process your personal data
Minna Technologies always strives to process and store your data within the EU/EEA. In certain situations your data may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside of the EU/EEA territory. Please note that privacy laws in countries outside of the EU/EEA may not be the same as, and in some cases may be less protective than, privacy laws in your country. However, we always ensure that we adopt adequate safeguards, such as EU standard contractual clauses and, where necessary, supplementary measures that, so far as possible, afford the data transferred to third countries a level of protection essentially equivalent to that guaranteed within the EU.
You can always contact us for information about the applicable safeguards.
7. How long we keep your personal data
Minna Technologies keeps your personal data only as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected. How long this is depends on the type of information. We regularly review our need to keep data, taking into account applicable legislation.
For information requests we keep your contact information for the duration of the request and if applicable the following conversation. For customer service questions we keep your data for 90 days and for other questions between 30 and 1 year depending on the type of request.
But sometimes longer
Sometimes we may need to keep your data if and to the extent it is necessary to protect or claim our legal rights. Your data may also be stored for a longer period if required under law, such as accounting and tax legislation.

This means we may no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests.
