Your primary contact in these matters is and will remain WoodEye.

However, in connection with such interaction, WoodEye both needs to receive and process personal data from and relating to employees and other individuals employed by and otherwise acting in the name of or for the benefit of its customers, agents, partners and other third parties – both received by WoodEye and company group companies.
