Standard Platform Policy

All terms that are defined in the Platform-Terms Landing Page from which you accessed this Platform Privacy Policy shall be ascribed, for purposes hereof, the respective meanings ascribed to them within that Platform-Terms Landing Page, except as otherwise defined hereinbelow.

This Platform Privacy Policy describes how and why your personal data may be processed specifically through, or otherwise in relation to, the Platform and Platform Functionality/Services. You can find more general information about how Ramboll’s Corporate Parent and its direct and indirect subsidiaries (including Ramboll and Ramboll’s Affiliates) process personal data across their various platforms by reading the general privacy policy located here: Privacy Policy - Ramboll Group.

For the avoidance of doubt, Ramboll, Ramboll’s Corporate Parent and each of its other Affiliates (referred to collectively and interchangeably solely for purposes of this Platform Privacy Policy as “We,” “Us” and “Our”) are separate legal entities and, except to the extent expressly provided otherwise in the Platform-Terms Landing Page or the documents incorporated therein, the agreement/terms of use governing your access to/use of the Platform and Platform Functionality/Services is with Ramboll, and, not any of its Affiliates.  Ramboll and its Affiliates, however, may share among them certain personal data covered by this Platform Privacy Policy, including, but not limited to, personal data stored on mutually accessible platforms, and, for that reason, the descriptions and other information provided in this Platform Privacy Policy apply collectively and interchangeably to Ramboll and each of its Affiliates.  In addition, such personal data likely will be processed within one or more European Union Member States.  As a result, We treat such personal data as being governed by the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679, “GDPR”), regardless of whether the relevant data subject is a European Union Member State citizen or resident.  As noted below, where the relevant data subject is a citizen or resident of a jurisdiction other than a European Union Member State, privacy laws of such other jurisdiction also may apply.  

Specific to the Platform and Platform Functionality/Services, below you will find descriptions of (1) the personal data that We, respectively, may collect or otherwise process through, or otherwise in relation to, the Platform or Platform Functionality/Services, (2) the purposes for which We, respectively, may process such personal data and (3) what your corresponding rights are under GDPR and, to the extent applicable, personal data privacy laws of certain other jurisdictions. Specific information concerning jurisdiction-specific data privacy laws of California are found near the end of this Platform Privacy Policy.  
By accessing and/or using the Platform or Platform Functionality/Services, you acknowledge that you understand the practices described and other information provided in and through this Platform Privacy Policy.  

PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA  

When you sign up for, log into, or otherwise access or use the Platform or Platform Functionality/Services, We may collect and otherwise process, as described below, personal data that you provide in doing so. We, respectively, may process such personal data for the purposes of providing, maintaining and improving the Platform or Platform Functionality/Services, and for other purposes described below. Except as indicated below, We will process such personal data as data controller and, in turn, We determine the purposes for and means of processing such personal data.

Where We transfer personal data as data controller to another data controller for purposes and means determined by the data controller receiving the personal data, that data controller is an independent data controller for the personal data transferred and shall bear all responsibilities of a data controller towards the data subjects of the personal data transferred. Conversely, We are an independent data controller when We receive personal data from another data controller to process for Our determined purposes and by Our determined means. In both such cases, each independent data controller acknowledges and agrees that each is responsible for ensuring that it has a legal basis for its processing of personal data, as required under applicable data protection laws, including, but not limited to, documenting and demonstrating compliance with applicable data protection requirements, informing data subjects of the transfer and processing of their personal data, handling complaints and data breaches and implementing appropriate security measures.  

Where in relation to some services, We also may process on your behalf personal data that you as data controller of that personal data input into the Platform or Platform Functionality/Services (or otherwise provide to Us), you are the data controller of such personal data. We will process such personal data on your behalf as a data processor in accordance with a separate data processing agreement which may be incorporated by reference within and linked to the Platform-Terms Landing Page (and defined therein as the “Platform Data Processing Agreement”), or executed separately.
If you would like additional information about the personal data that We process, please contact Us at privacy@ramboll.com.  

CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL DATA AND PURPOSES OF PROCESSING 

We, respectively, collect and otherwise process the following categories of personal data for the following purposes: 

  • Your contact information and other basic personal data that you actively input into Our online platform(s), e.g. name, phone number, e-mail/physical address, name of employer, work title, payment or location details containing personal data, etc. We, respectively, may process such personal data to provide you secure access to and to operate, maintain, market and improve the Platform and Platform Functionality/Services or other services that We may provide, and to deliver an enhanced user experience, legal basis GDPR article 6 (1) (b), (f) and (a), where applicable. We also may process your personal data to handle orders, deliver services, process payments and communicate with you about the Platform or Platform Functionality/Services or other services that We, respectively, may provide, as well as to provide and analyze functionality and performance and to correct any errors in functionality or performance. Please note that, should you choose not to provide certain requested information, your access to/use of all or parts of the Platform or Platform Functionality/Services may be limited.  

  • Personal data that We automatically collect and otherwise process when you use the Platform or Platform Functionality/Services, or certain of Our respective other applications, websites or other online platforms, like, as applicable, Our landing pages, newsletters, webinar platforms and other digital services, e.g., browser and log in information, IP address, geography, time of access and information regarding your usage and activity on Our applications, websites or other online platforms. That information is processed to provide security, analyze, market and improve Our respective services, and personalize Our marketing, in circumstances where the processing is a necessity in achieving such purposes and where our legitimate interests are justified in relation to fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, legal basis GDPR article 6 (1) (f).  Part of such information may be collected through the use of cookies and, therefore, whether and what information is collected will depend on your consent to the use of cookies, legal basis GDPR article 6 (1) (a). You can read more about how and why We process personal data through the use of cookies here: Privacy Policy - Ramboll Group.

  • Other personal data that you actively input into Our online platform(s), if applicable. If, in the context of accessing/using the Platform or Platform Functionality/Services, or Our respective other applications, websites or other online platforms, you input personal data beyond your contact information and other basic personal data of yours, you shall control its collection or management, as data controller, and We shall process same on your behalf, as data processor and in accordance with the data processing agreement incorporated by reference within the Platform-Term Landing Page, or executed separately, if applicable. We do not intend to collect, manage or otherwise process special category data, and, if you choose to input such data, We shall not be responsible for same.  

  • Personal data We receive from third parties, e.g., search engine providers, social media platforms, etc. If you use such services to interact with Us, including, without limitation, through Our respective applications, websites or other online platforms, or Our respective social media pages, We may collect and otherwise process your personal data provided by such services, e.g., information regarding your specific interests, usage, background information, “likes”, etc. If you want to restrict the information that such third parties share with Us, please do so directly with such third parties, e.g., via their respective applications, websites and other online platforms. We strongly recommend that you read carefully the privacy policies and practices of such third parties on their respective applications, websites, other online platforms, and otherwise. 

We may combine the personal data that We receive from third parties with personal data that you provide to Us or that We automatically collect. Doing so enables Us to personalize Our marketing materials to your specific interests and preferences.  

We may use automated decision-making in processing your personal data, such as, for example, as part of Our fraud prevention and detection efforts for Our respective online platforms. You may request information about the applicable decision-making methodology by contacting privacy@ramboll.com. 

ACCESS TO PERSONAL DATA 

We may use data processors to process personal data on Our behalf pursuant to Our instructions. In such cases, We will implement or cause to be implemented appropriate safeguards to secure personal data. 

Certain personal data that We process, respectively, may be accessible by Our Affiliates worldwide and We may actively share certain personal data among Our Affiliates on a need to know basis. In addition, We sometimes use external service providers for hosting and operating Our digital platforms, services and offerings and personal data that We process may be accessed and processed by such service providers on Our behalf. 

Please be informed that the level of personal data protection currently applied and enforced in countries outside the European Union may not conform to the level of personal data protection currently applied and enforced within the European Union. Any transfer of data between/among Our Affiliates will be subject to the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses.  Similarly, We may engage third party service providers that will have access to and process personal data that We process. When such third-party service providers process such personal data outside of the EU/EEA, any related transfer of personal data will be subject to the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, combined with supplementary measures, where appropriate. You can request a copy of any agreements covering the transfer of your personal data by contacting privacy@ramboll.com. 

STORAGE AND SECURITY OF PERSONAL DATA 

We may store personal data, such as your name, e-mail address and other contact information needed to operate and provide you with access to/use of the Platform and Platform Functionality/Services without disruption, for the Retention Period defined in the Platform-Terms Landing Page, unless We are required under applicable law to keep your personal data for a longer or shorter period of time. No personal data shall be kept for longer than what applicable law requires beyond the Retention Period, whereafter it shall be automatically deleted or returned to you, where applicable. 

Under applicable law, We may be required to be able to document that you have provided consent to receive marketing materials. We, therefore, may keep personal data needed to demonstrate compliance, which personal data We shall keep for up to five years after consent has been revoked or the personal data no longer is needed for the purposes for which it initially was processed.  

All personal data shall be processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security, integrity and confidentiality thereof, including, for example, protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical and organizational measures, such as encryption protocols and software, pseudonymization/anonymization, where applicable, access controls, authentication mechanisms and physical, operational and information security.
