4. DOES Arvato PASS ON THE INFORMATION IT GATHERS?
Personal information about you is not hired out or sold to third parties. Arvato reserves the right to share the data with SENNHEISER. Arvato can forward your personal information to the following entities:
Companies operating on our behalf: we hire other companies to carry out certain business activities for us. In the process, it might under certain circumstances be necessary to access your personal information. We urge these companies to use the information solely for the provision of the agreed services. The companies are not permitted to transmit the information to third parties, unless this is necessitated by service provision. These business activities include, for example, the execution of orders, the processing of vouchers, bonuses and discounts, the conduct of customer questionnaires, and information management tasks. We also provide particular service providers with compilations of general information. Web pages of subsidiaries and partners: Arvato forwards information to partner companies which make special offers or run promotional campaigns jointly on web pages of subsidiaries within our website. They are informed about the forwarding of the information when they are requested to provide personal information on websites of this kind. The respective partner company’s use of information transmitted in this way is governed by the partner’s own data protection guidelines. You should read this information in its entirety before transmitting your personal data.
Company transfers: Arvato reserves the right to transfer, either in whole or in part, your personal information in the event of the sale or transfer of our company or our assets. If the company is sold or transferred, Arvato will give you the option of refusing to allow the transfer of your personal information. In some cases, this might mean that the new company can no longer provide you with the services or products that were previously provided by Arvato. Legal execution: Arvato can disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent for the following purposes: to comply with laws, ordinances or court decisions; to cooperate with investigations by public authorities; to prevent fraud; or to assert or protect the rights of Arvato, one of its subsidiaries or one of the companies in the Bertelsmann Group.
Your consent: In all other cases, Arvato will ask for your explicit consent before your personal information is disclosed to third parties. Arvato can, for example, make a special offer or launch a prize competition in conjunction with a third party, in which case you will be asked whether your personal information may be forwarded to this third party.
5. PROTECTION OF YOUR DATA
Arvato uses a variety of administrative, internal and technical security measures to protect your personal information. Arvato has established internal control standards which deal specifically with the handling of personal data. These include particular control measures for protecting the information gathered by us online.
Employees of Arvato are trained to understand and comply with these control measures. In addition, we make our employees aware of our data protection information, guidelines and standards. Although we commit ourselves to the protection of your personal information, you too must take any steps which may be necessary. We recommend that you take all of the precautionary steps that are necessary to protect your personal information during Internet use.
6. PROTECTION OF CHILDREN’S DATA
The online protection of children’s data is particularly important. Arvato does not deliberately gather or request information about children unless the children’s parents or guardians give their explicit consent. Arvato suggests to parents or guardians that they should spend time with their children in the Internet and participate in their activities and interests.
