With Whom May We Share Your Personal Data?

Other Wihuri Group companies: We may transfer the personal data to other Wihuri Group companies if necessary for the security measures. Some of these companies may act as independent data controllers for the personal data we provide them.

Third parties: We may disclose your personal data to government agencies and regulators, courts and other government authorities where there is a legal obligation to do so. We may also disclose your personal data to external advisors (e.g. lawyers, accountants, auditors etc.) or to security firms.

Service providers and other partners: As part of normal operations Wihuri contracts with third party service providers (e.g. IT systems and support providers etc.). These partners process your personal data only at and according to Wihuri’s instructions to provide the services.

May There Be Any International Data Transfers?

Wihuri operates in a global market. Due to this, your data may be transferred to non-EU/EEA countries too. Because different countries may have different data protection laws than your own country, we take steps to ensure adequate safeguards are in place to protect your data when required. Adequate safeguards that Wihuri Group companies and our partners may use include standard contractual clauses approved by EU Commission.

How Do We Protect Your Personal Data?

Wihuri complies with all applicable data protection legislation and aims to ensure that your privacy is not infringed in any phase of the processing.

We continuously develop and implement administrative, technical and physical security measures to protect your data from unauthorised access and against loss, misuse or alteration. The rights of access to the data are predefined and limited. We also require our service providers to implement all appropriate security measures to protect your personal data.

For How Long Do We Retain Your Personal Data?

Generally Wihuri retains the video surveillance material for a period of two months or shorter. We may, however, retain some material for a longer period of time if necessary for our legitimate business interest, such as to resolve disputes or to comply with applicable standards. If you ask us to remove your personal data, we may still retain your data if necessary for such interest.

Your Rights and Options

You have the right to access your personal data and to correct your data. In some circumstances you may also have the right to have your unnecessary or inaccurate data deleted, to object to how we use or share your data, to restrict how we process your data, and to have your data transferred to another data controller.

You can exercise these rights by contacting Wihuri’s data protection expert in data protection matters through the contact details set out above.
