Transfers to third parties
Information about the types of third parties to which we disclose personal data and the purposes for which we do so is described in our privacy & security statement respectively.
If we have received your personal data in the United States and subsequently transfer that information to a third party acting as an agent, and such third party processes your personal data in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, we will remain responsible unless we can prove we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
Disclosures for national security or law enforcement
Please note that under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Access, correction and deletion rights
You have the right to access personal data that we hold about you and request that we correct, amend, or delete it if it is inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of a third party.

We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity.
We commit to giving you an opportunity to opt out if personal data we control about you is to be disclosed to another independent third party, or is to be used for a purpose that is materially different from those set out in our privacy statements. Where sensitive personal data is involved, we will obtain your express opt-in consent to do such things.
