How long do we retain your data
We retain your data for the time necessary to meet the purpose for which it was collected, taking the legitimacy of the processing into account. If the same type of personal data is used for two or more different purposes, we will apply the longer storage limitation period and we will only allow access to those that need it in order to carry out their duties.
- For purposes related to the execution of the contract for the sale or use of a product, we will retain your personal data for as long as the contractual relationship remains valid or for as long as it is necessary to meet our contractual obligations, and for eight years afterwards in order to be able to deal with queries or requests for assistance. Where it concerns the provision of a service, the storage limitation period shall be four years from its inception.
- For purposes relating to marketing activities and commercial or corporate communication, we will retain your data for a period of five years from the last date that we obtained your consent. If you revoke it, we will restrict the personal data related to these purposes so that it cannot be used and we will delete it when one year has passed.

- For purposes connected with the fulfilment of our legal obligations, we will retain your data for the period specified by the specific applicable law (tax, trading, etc.) in each case.
Once the maximum storage limitation period has ended, we will delete your personal data as stipulated by the GDPR, meaning it shall be restricted, made anonymous, pseudonymised or totally erased.
How we protect your data
The data security principle requires that the necessary technical and organisational measures be adopted to ensure the security of the personal data and to prevent its alteration, loss or unauthorised access and processing.
At Star TIC Innovación we have taken as a reference the measures established in Title VIII of the Development Regulation of the Organic Law on Data Protection, approved by Royal Decree 1720/2007, of 21 December. On the basis of this and the provisions of the GDPR and the LOPDGDD, we have established additional measures that improve the control of the processes and the security of our privacy management model, by applying the best available practices. Your data is hosted on reliable servers and is protected by strict policies and security measures and, periodically, we submit to independent external audits to check the robustness of our management model and to explore opportunities for improvement.
Transfer and/or communication of the information to third parties
We may share personal data with service providers and authorised third parties for legitimate activities and purposes (for example, those which are necessary for the operation of processes or the provision of products and services provided by other companies, contracted by Star TIC Innovación, S.A. and who can assume the role of “Data processor”).
This communication may be bidirectional and shall always be protected by the existence of a contract that regulates it.
Some of these activities are:
- Carrying out commercial activities, marketing and other advertising campaigns.
- Operational and contractual relationship with our business partners (distributors, retailers, technical support, etc.).
- Operational and contractual relationship with our subsidiaries and any commercial representatives we may have.
On selecting the companies that provide us with these services, we have taken into account, among other factors, their compliance with the GDPR and the LOPDGDD (and they are actually susceptible to be audited by our team). They carry out the processing of personal data on the basis of the indications that we specify in writing in a contract and always in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR and the LOPDGDD. For example, you will never receive their marketing communications nor will they do anything with your data outside of the agreement with Star TIC Innovación, S.A and at the same time, in line with the purpose of collecting your data at the time that you gave us your consent.
If the processing of this personal data were to take place outside of the list of countries of members of the European Economic Area, it would be made on the basis of contractual clauses approved by the European Commission.
Remember that we may transfer your data to third parties when it is required for the fulfilment of our legal obligations (tax, trading, etc.) or at the request of a legal authority.
