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. 

We may disclose your personal information to any of our employees, officers, professional advisers, agents, suppliers, or subcontractors as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement.

We may disclose your personal information:

  1. to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
  2. in connection with any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings;
  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);
  4. to the buyer (or prospective buyer) of any business or asset that we are (or are contemplating) selling; and
  5. to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.

Except as provided in this Privacy Statement, we shall not provide your personal information to third parties.

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:

-       the country to which the personal data will be transferred has been granted a European Commission adequacy decision; or

-       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.

You may request more information about the safeguards that we have put in place in respect of transfers of personal data by contacting us as described in Section Q) below.

G) Retaining personal information

Personal information will be retained in observance of the principles of proportionality and necessity and, in any case, until the purposes of the processing have been achieved. The retention periods vary country by country depending on the local laws. We delete personal data when it is no longer necessary for the purposes it was collected for.  

We shall retain documents (including electronic documents) containing personal information:

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. 

H) Data security

K) Cookies

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
