E) Disclosing personal information
Leviat is a global company that has affiliates, business partners, and technical systems that shall cross European borders. This means that your personal information may be transferred to countries other than the one where you are located, including also outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). We use appropriate safeguards, such as the standard contractual clauses provided by the European Commission and/or other contractual arrangements for these transfers in order to protect your data.

F) International data transfers
Information that we collect may be stored, processed in, and transferred between any of the countries in which we operate in order to enable us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
Information that we collect may be transferred intra-group to countries which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the EEA and the United Kingdom (“UK”). Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you provided the data. When we transfer your data to other countries, we will protect the data as described in this Privacy Statement and comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of data to countries outside the EEA and outside the UK.
If you are located in the EEA or the UK, we will only transfer your personal data if:

- we have put in place appropriate safeguards in respect of the transfer, for example we have entered into EU standard contractual clauses and required additional safeguards with the recipient, or the recipient is a party to binding corporate rules approved by an EU or UK Privacy supervisory authority.

1. to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
2. if we believe that the documents may be relevant to any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings; and
3. in order to establish, exercise, or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).
Personal information that we process for any purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes, and according to our data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations regarding the retention and deletion of personal information.
