Privacy Shield

Marketing Guys uses American marketing software platforms for its Services, including Act-On, Marketo and Net-Results. Until recently, these organizations complied with the European-American Privacy Shield framework. However, on 16 July 2020, the European Court of Justice ruled that Privacy Shield did not provide adequate protection for the privacy of EU citizens. This made Privacy Shield no longer usable for moving and storing personal data from the European Union to servers in the United States and American servers on EU territory.

We are currently investigating how best to overcome this. We are committed to privacy and are trying to do everything we can to find an appropriate solution. If we have an appropriate solution, we will inform you about it through this privacy statement. Do you have any questions about the processing of your personal data? Please contact us using the contact details in this privacy statement.

Personal data that these American organizations receive through Marketing Guys is stored and processed within the EU. The location of the servers of these American organizations where Marketing Guys uses for its services are indicated below:

For support purposes, your personal information may be shared with a support representative of an American software supplier, such as Act-On. This exchange then falls under the Privacy Shield agreements. We will keep sharing personal information to a minimum and only share the most necessary so that the support department can resolve the issue. Where possible, we will anonymize or pseudonymise the personal data.
