4. HOW WILL YOUR DATA BE USED AND SHARED?

We may process and share the information we obtain through cookies:

  • With companies belonging to the group and/or with subsidiaries of the group; or
  • With any third party with whom you have asked us to share your personal information or with organizations you have agreed to share your information with, such as Facebook or other social media acting as data controllers; or
  • With third parties who assist us with our products and services. Examples of third party activities include data analysis, marketing support providers etc. These companies will have access to the information processed through the cookies, but only when strictly necessary to carry out their activities. They may not use your data for other purposes.

5. TRANSFER OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We may transfer your personal data to third parties located in third countries (outside the European Economic Area (EEA)). This transfer of data outside the EEA is lawful if the recipient of the data is in a country providing an adequate level of protection following an adequacy decision of the European Commission. Some of these countries may not have equivalent data protection laws to protect the use of your personal data. In this case, we have examined whether appropriate precautionary measures such as within the EU are possible, e.g. by providing for standard contractual clauses. In specific cases, we ask for your prior consent to transfer your personal data outside the EEA. For more information about the transfer of data, please refer to our privacy policy.
