8. SHARING OF THE INFORMATION RAWLPLUG RECEIVES
Rawlplug may share your information including personal data with Rawlplug Group companies for marketing purposes if you have given an expressed consent.
Rawlplug uses third parties service providers to carry out certain activities on its behalf. Examples include, agency activities, fulfilling orders, subcontracting, carrying out surveys and installations, delivering packages, sending postal mail, operating IT systems, including e-mail, providing IT resources, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service, legal services, accounting services etc. These third parties are processors of your personal data needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Rawlplug will ensure that any processing of personal data by processors complies with provisions of GDPR, especially that any such processor is aware of and abides by obligations set for the therein. We will also ensure that any processor treats your personal data no less protective as required by applicable data protection laws and that they adopt adequate technical and organizational security measures.
Rawlplug may share your personal data with other controllers, when we believe it necessary to comply with the law, to protect the rights or safety of the Website, other users, or third parties (e.g., for fraud protection purposes, settlements purposes). Without limitation, this may include cases in which we share your personal data with government authorities, local authorities or court authorities, persons running offices of business information and assignees. Rawlplug will carefully determine the permissibility of providing personal data in each such context, paying particular attention to the type of request, types of data affected and any impact that a disclosure of personal data would have on the user affected. Should we decide to disclose personal data in such context we will also consider ways of reducing the scope of the disclosure, for instance by redacting the information provided.
Rawlplug may disclose personal data as described in this Privacy and Security Policy to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Rawlplug’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal data held by Rawlplug about the Website users is among the assets transferred
Rawlplug may share your personal data with carefully selected third parties so they may contact you with offers and information about their goods and services or for other purposes, unless you expressed your consent.
Recipients of your personal data, including Rawlplug Group companies, may be located in any country. This may include countries where applicable data protection laws provide a lesser degree of protection than EU laws, especially countries outside the territory of European Union (“third countries”). In such case, Rawlplug may transfer your personal data to a third country only where:
- the Commission has decided that the third country, a territory or one or more specified sectors within that third country, ensures an adequate level of protection. Such a transfer shall not require any specific authorization, or
- adequate level of protection is applied for your personal data, for instance by ensuring that the recipient abides by so-called EC Model Clauses, which are sets of contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission for the purpose of adducing adequate safeguards to personal data in connection with cross-border transfers, or
- the transfer meets other requirements set forth in GDPR.
9. LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
Rawlplug may from time to time establish relationships with other third party companies and the Website may contain links to and from such third party websites. Rawlplug will try to provide you with links to high quality, reputable sites which it believes will be of interest and relevant to you, but please note that such third party sites are not under its control and Rawlplug does not contribute to the content of such sites.
If you follow a link to any third party website, please note that they will have their own policies. When you click through to these sites you leave the area controlled by Rawlplug. Rawlplug cannot accept responsibility for any issues arising in connection with either the third party’s use of your data, the site content or the services offered to you by these sites. Rawlplug therefore encourages you to check any third party website’s policies before you submit any personal data to these sites.
Rawlplug maintains administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed and intended to protect personal data against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. Despite these safeguards, due to inherent uncertainty in the use of the Internet and information systems and the potential for unlawful attacks by third parties, Rawlplug cannot guarantee that the use of systems, websites (including the Website) or applications will be completely safe or secure.
Rawlplug retains information for as long as it is needed or useful to provide and improve Rawlplug’s products and services, comply with its legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce its agreements.
The safety and security of your personal data also depends on you. Where Rawlplug has given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Rawlplug asks you not to share your password with anyone. Rawlplug also urges you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Website like message boards. The information and personal data you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Website.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although Rawlplug does its very best to protect your personal data, Rawlplug cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted to the Website. Any transmission of personal data is at your own risk. Rawlplug is not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
