How we use the information
Main purposes we use your information for:
- Verify your identity, for this purpose, we use contact information.

We anonymise your quiz responses so that you cannot be personally identified and this data is used by Ecowalla and other organisations to understand sustainable consumers for both commercial and non-commercial purposes.

The legal basis for purposes 1 and 2 is that this is necessary to fulfil our agreement with you and other organisations.
The legal basis for purposes 3, 4 and 5 is our legitimate interest in managing product development.
The legal basis for purpose 6 is our legitimate interest in providing you with customised content and marketing. We have the right to market equivalent products and services if we have an existing customer relationship with you. If we do not have an existing customer relationship with you, the legal basis will be your consent if you have given us this. Legal basis for first time contact will be our legitimate interest.
You may withdraw your consent at any time.
Who we share the information with
We share information with our suppliers to the extent necessary to provide service to You.
We transfer information outside the EEA area, partly because some of our suppliers and group companies are located there. We ensure that information about you is secured in a proper manner, either by agreements with recipients or by recipient’s subject to certification schemes approved in the EU. You can get more information about such agreements and arrangements by contacting us.
User contact information will be shared with your organisation in the case that they request this. Your sustainability data (quiz answers), however, will only ever be shared anonymously and in an aggregated manner.
How long do we store the data
We only store your data as long as it is necessary. This typically means that personal data related to customer relationship is deleted after 3 years of inactivity on Ecowalla.
We may, however, be bound by legal obligations which requires us to store the information for a longer period than 3 years after the customer account is inactive. This may occur if we are subject to complaints or claims directed against us or by us.
