Recipients of your personal data

Disclosure to external third parties

We disclose personal data included in our accounting records to the relevant public authorities, including the tax and customs authorities, in connection with our statutory bookkeeping etc. We also disclose your personal data to our relevant business partners, including external advisors, in connection with particular enquiries, agreements or cases.

Disclosure within the group

Any personal data included in particular enquiries, agreements or cases and any personal data used for customer service activities (such as your contact details) are shared among the group companies. This is done for the purpose of providing efficient and stable customer service, irrespective of the group company with whom the company you represent has concluded an agreement. That also means that we may have received personal data about you from one of our group companies, e.g. for the purpose of processing such enquiries.

Use of processors

We make your personal data available to our processors who e.g. host, develop and support the group’s IT systems and/or send service notices for us.

Transfer of your personal data to third countries

When we make data available to our processors, we may transfer your personal data to the Philippines. The basis for such transfer is the Commission Decision of 5 February 2010 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries under Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as we have entered into such standard contractual clauses with the relevant recipients of the data.

Storage of your personal data

We are required to only store your personal data for the period necessary for us to fulfil the purposes for which they were collected. For that reason, we have established the time limits for erasure set out in the table below. As a general rule, we erase or anonymise your personal data according to the time limits stated below unless it is necessary that we continue to store them, e.g. for the purpose of particular cases or the like.

When it is stated below that your personal data will be erased, we may instead anonymise the data, and then the data can no longer be used to identify you. Anonymised data are not covered by the GDPR as they are no longer personal data.
