e. Website performance
IPwe uses personal data from our website users, i.e., name, contact and professional information, for our legitimate interest to create accurate and up-to-date records of existing and potential customers in our systems. To improve the quality of our database, IPwe supplements existing data with personal data (i.e. employer, job title, contact information) it retrieves from other available lawful sources, e.g., online, social media platforms, address vendors, public registers etc.
If you are an existing customer, customer employee or customer contractor, we may use your information to provide you with information about our products and services (e.g., releases, promotional activities, special offers, events etc.) due to our legitimate interest, that all of our marketing activities are tailored to your interests, and to ensure you receive such information at the right time and place. If you are none of the above, you will receive direct marketing messages from us only upon your express consent.

3. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION
IPwe values the concept of data minimization and make reasonable efforts to ensure that only those employees will access and process personal data that actually require such data to perform their tasks.
IPwe shares personal data with providers of website tracking tools to monitor the performance and usability of this website (see Paragraph 5 on Cookies).
IPwe only uses the share function (“share button”), which allows users to share our content to their profiles on social networks. In the event a user calls up the share function, his computer or device establishes a direct connection to the social network’s servers. Certain information is transmitted to the operator of the social network and, if logged in, integrated into the user’s profile. IPwe has no influence on the type of data social networks actually collect with the help of this plugin. Such information may include session information, user ID, password, IP address and other personal data.
If the user is logged in to the social network, its operator can assign the visit to the user’s profile and identity. The social network is hereby enabled to create profiles on the user. If a user is neither logged in or a member of a social network, it is still possible for any network operator to obtain and store IP address and other data. Users that do not want social networks to collect personal data via social plug ins must log out of their social network accounts before using our website and/or and delete all relevant cookies.
