Disclosures and Transfers of Customer Contact Data and Transfer of Customer Contact Data to countries outside European Union or the European Economic Area

Customer Contact Data are not generally disclosed (to another controller for independent use) unless required by the mandatory law such as to authorities.

If Customer Contact Data are transferred to/from external data processors (typically subcontractors or vendors of Priceff) to be processed on behalf of Priceff, appropriate data processing agreements, as required by the applicable laws, are always executed between Priceff and data processors.

Exceptionally, Customer Contact Data may need to be transferred to purchaser or potential purchaser of Priceff business or part of it. Such sharing of personal data will involve only smallest possible amount of Customer Contact Data and always in the limits of applicable legislation.

Due to necessary technical and practical processing requirements, it may be necessary to transfer Customer Contact Data outside EU and/or EEA (incl. Switzerland). Should such international transfer occur, it would only be executed as allowed by and in accordance with applicable laws. Due to limited coverage of EU Commission adequacy decisions, EU Commission standard contractual clauses (e.g. of type controller to processor, EU Commission decision 2010/87/EU) would typically be used as appropriate safeguards for these international personal data transfers. In some cases, also US/EU Privacy Shield arrangement would be relied on. Copies of the standard contractual clauses would be available through the contact details mentioned above.
