We may disclose your Personal Data to third parties, including but not limited to as follows:
- within our group of companies for the purposes of use described in this Privacy Statement;

Due to the global nature of our business, your Personal Data may be stored and transferred to parties located in other countries, including outside the European Economic Area. These other countries will either have different data protection laws than your country of residence or they will not have data protection laws. They may not be deemed by the European Commission as providing adequate protection for Personal Data.
In particular, we may store your Personal Data on servers in the United States of America. The US are not deemed by the European Commission to have adequate protections for Personal Data. Steps will be taken to put in place safeguards (including around security) to protect your Personal Data when it is in these other countries.

Keeping your Information Secure
We endeavour to use appropriate technical and physical security measures to protect Personal Data which is transmitted, stored or otherwise processed by us, from any unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access, in connection with our Site. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and facilities. Our service providers are also selected carefully and required to use appropriate protective measures. In certain areas, we use industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions. Most current browsers support the level of security needed to use these areas.
In particular, we endeavour to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including as appropriate: (a) pseudonymisation (such as where data is separated from direct identifiers so that linkage to an identity is not possible without additional information that is held separately) and encryption, (b) ensuring the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of systems and services used to process your Personal Data, (c) ensuring the ability to restore the availability and access to Personal Data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident; and (d) ensuring a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational security measures.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to a Site and you do so at your own risk. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please notify us immediately of the suspected problem.

When you visit the Sites the buttons are not activated, and they will remain inactive unless you click on one of the buttons. After you click on a button, it will remain active until you deactivate them or you delete your cookies. If you are logged on to a social network, the network can assign your visit to the website to your user account. If you are a member of a social network, you must log out from the social network before activating the buttons on our website, if you do not want the social network to assign data obtained during your visit to our website with your social membership data.
We use Google Analytics on our websites with the extension “anonymizeIP()”, IP addresses being truncated before further processing in order to rule out direct associations to persons.

Retention period or criteria used to determine the retention period
We keep your Personal Data for as long as it is necessary to do so to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected as described above.
The criteria we use to determine data retention periods for Personal Data includes the following: (i) Retention in case of queries. We will retain it for a reasonable period after the relationship between us has ceased (up to 12 months) in case of queries from you; (ii) Retention in case of claims. We will retain it for the period in which you might legally bring claims against us (in some countries this means we will retain it for 10 years) if and to the extent we have entered into any contract with you; (iii) Retention in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements. We will consider whether we need to retain it after the period described in (ii) because of a legal or regulatory requirement.
If your application for employment is successful and you commence employment with us, your Personal Data will be transferred to your personnel file and will be processed for employment purposes. If your application for employment is not successful, we will keep your Personal Data for a period of 12 months upon notification that your application was not successful.
