1. Data Subjects

React processes personal data of the following categories:

  • Identified third party infringers of intellectual property rights of our members (hereafter: infringers), i.e. name, address, email address, company details. React does not process date of birth, social security numbers or bank account numbers of infringers.

  • Employees. This data contains names, addresses, email addresses, birth days, social security numbers and bank accounts numbers.

  • Partners (partner offices, associated law offices). This data contains names, addresses and email addresses.

  • Authorities (e.g. Police, Customs, Federal Public Service). This data contains names, addresses and email addresses.

  • Members of React. This data contains names, addresses and email addresses.

  • Job applicants. This data contains names, addresses, email addresses and date of births.

2. Processing Purposes

Necessity

Processing the data of infringers is necessary to monitor infringement cases and register the recidivists/ multiple offenders, in order to be able to protect and enforce the intellectual property rights of our members.

Source

We obtain the infringers’ data through Customs notifications, police information, online research (Whois information, websites of infringers) and the infringers themselves.

Accessibility

All employees of React can access the personal data of the infringers, including our offices outside the EU. Counterfeit trade is typically crossing borders including those of the EU. In order to enhance the protection of IP rights, disclosing international trade patterns of fake products is an important objective of React.

Period

The infringers’ personal data will be deleted after a process period of 10 years, unless there is a contractual relationship between React and the infringer or other particular circumstances that legitimise a longer period of processing.

Third parties

The infringers’ personal data will only be shared with a third party when used for the same purpose of React, i.e. to protect and enforce the intellectual property rights of our members, or when obliged to by law. React will not sell the infringers’ personal data to third parties.

3. Right of Inspection and Correction

Upon request by the subject of the information, React will provide insight in the processed personal data of an infringer. The infringer may file a substantiated request to have the data rectified or deleted. Our privacy officer will evaluate such request and respond within three weeks.

4. Security

Our computers and software are secured in accordance with standard business security practice. Our employees are trained to use data in compliance with our Data Use Policy.

5. Breach of Data

In case of a breach of personal data, React’s Privacy Officer will notify the local data authorities within 72 hours after having become aware of it.
