Who we are
We are Alpastpapers.com & Ask.Alpastpapers.com (“we”, “our”, “us”). We’re committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. If you have questions about your personal information, please contact us.
Which personal data do we collect?
We collect two types of information:
- Information that you provide to us
- Information we receive when you use our services.
Our sites and our services are not intended for people under the age of 13, and we will not knowingly collect information about people under the age of 13.
What information we hold about you.
- The type of data that we collect, and process includes:
- Your name or username.
- Your email address.
- Your IP address.
Further data may be collected if you choose to share it, such as if you fill out fields on your profile.
We collect some or all this information in the following cases:
- You register as a member on this site.
- You fill out our contact form.
- You fill out fields on your profile.
Why do we process your personal data?
For us to be able to handle your personal data, we always need to have a purpose and a so-called legal basis for the processing, which we explain below. We process your personal data to:
- Provide our services to you (fulfillment of agreements).
- Analyze, improve and further develop the services (legitimate interest).
- Communicate with you and provide support (fulfillment of agreements).
- Let education providers and exhibitors know that you are interested in e.g., a certain education (fulfillment of agreements).
- Fulfill our legal obligations, such as tax and accounting (legal obligations).
- Send newsletters and other information to you (fulfillment of agreement).
- Prevent, limit, and investigate misuse of our services and illegal activities (legitimate interest).
Fulfillment of agreements. One reason why we process your personal data is to be able to fulfill the contractual obligations that we have undertaken to perform. This regard, for example, personal information required for you to be able to take full advantage of our services.
Legitimate interest. Another reason why we process personal data about you is that we have judged that our legitimate interest in processing your personal data outweighs your right not to be covered by the processing. This is called a balance of interests and applies, for example, when we further develop our services. You are welcome to contact us if you want to know more about the balance of interests.
Legal obligation. We may also need to process personal data to comply with laws and fulfill our legal obligations.

- Your IP address is recorded when you perform certain actions on our site. Your IP address is never publicly visible.
Other ways we may use your personal information.
In addition to notifying, you of activity on our site which may be relevant to you, from time to time we may wish to communicate with all members any important information such as newsletters or announcements by email. You can opt-in to or opt-out of such emails in your profile.

Keeping your data secure.
We are committed to ensuring that any information you provide to us is secure. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable measures and procedures to safeguard and secure the information that we collect.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
