Examples include hosting and/or maintaining the content of the websites and providing marketing services. These service providers will only have access to your personal data that they need to have in order to carry out their activities. They are not permitted to use this personal information for any other purpose. They are subject to contractual obligations of confidentiality towards us, so that the protection of your privacy is guaranteed.
- To government agencies or law enforcement agencies: If, after our legal review, we determine that we are legally required to share your personal information with them.

How can you access, correct or delete your personal data?
According to the applicable data protection laws, you have the following rights:

- The right to be forgotten/to have the data deleted: Under certain circumstances you have the right to have your personal data deleted. You can request this at any time.
