Where we use data in marketing communications, this will only be first and last name.

Special category data
If we have access to your special category personal data we will use this only: (i) as is necessary for us to carry out our responsibilities in the field of employment and social security and social protection law in so far as we are authorised to do by EU or Member State law or other collective agreement which provides appropriate safeguards; (ii) if needed to protect an individual’s vital interests in certain circumstances; (iii) if it is manifestly made public by you; (iv) it is needed to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (v) as is necessary for preventative or occupational health purposes.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your data in some circumstances. Where we have asked for your consent, you may withdraw consent at any time. If you ask to withdraw your consent to The Knoll processing your data, this will not affect any processing which has already lawfully taken place at that time but may prevent us from performing services for you if we are unable to do so without your data. We will advise you of that if it is the case when you withdraw your consent.
