  2. Personal Data may be accessed or transferred by LDH EUROPE and other third parties as outlined in this Privacy Statement. For processing your Personal Data as described in this Privacy Statement, we may disclose your personal data to the sponsor of a Contest. The sponsor of a Contest may ask you to sign up for their direct marketing e-mails via the registration form on the Website. This processing activity solely falls under the responsibility of the sponsor and LDH EUROPE accept no liability for this processing activity.

    LDH EUROPE occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on its behalf, including service providers, (potential) business partners and sponsors, and LDH EUROPE will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

    In all cases, LDH EUROPE will expressly state why such information is necessary, so that you may provide the information at your own discretion. LDH EUROPE will not disclose Personal Data provided by you to any party, other than LDH EUROPE itself, without prior permission from you.

    LDH EUROPE may disclose Personal Data in case such disclosure is mandatory under Applicable Laws or is reasonably judged to be essential in order to protect and safeguard the rights, property and safety of other parties, LDH EUROPE itself, and/or LDH EUROPE's affiliates..

    For the purpose of business development or product development, LDH EUROPE may use your Personal Data, though such use shall be limited only to LDH EUROPE itself and LDH EUROPE's affiliates and business partners (e.g. sponsors).

    LDH EUROPE may provide (moderated) bulletin boards on its Website(s) where you and others can post messages. Please be aware that your messages and other Personal Data can be disclosed when commenting on the bulletin board and can be viewed by others. LDH EUROPE’s Website(s) may contain links to other websites outside the control of LDH EUROPE. LDH EUROPE is not responsible for the handling of Personal Data of these other websites.

    Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, LDH EUROPE decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize its businesses. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of Personal Data to prospective or actual purchasers, or receiving it from sellers. It is LDH EUROPE's practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

    LDH EUROPE may transfer Personal Data to a third country or international organisations outside of the EU/EEA, such as to the group companies of LDH Europe (“LDH Group”), which shall take place only in compliance with the Applicable Laws, and where appropriate safeguards are in place that ensure the level of protection as required by the Applicable Laws (e.g. transfers on the basis of an adequacy decision, or the signing of standard EU Model clauses).

    In certain circumstances, it is possible that Personal Data may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders.
