6. Our policy for the protection of the personal data of children

The protection of the children’s personal data is very important to us, especially when they are online. Our website, our products and services are not addressed to nor are they designed for children below the age of 14.

It is our policy not to process personal data of minors below the age of 14, even if we rely on consent, unless we have obtained the prior authorization of their parents or custodian or if such processing is permissible under the law.

We do not target children when providing online services or personalized advertising. However we might unintentionally process personal data of minors under the age of 14 in which case we will ensure  that the data is deleted unless it was provided with the consent of the parent or custodian. We might also delete the account of the child from our company’s electronic platform, if applicable.

We ask that you inform the Data Protection Office -DPO- as soon as you became aware that a minor below the age of 14 has provided us with personal data.

7. Disclosures of your personal data

There are occasions when we need to share your personal data with a third party processors. We will only provide the information they need to perform their specific services.

We require all third parties to follow the procedures to secure your data and to confirm that they put in place appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your data in accordance with applicable law. Our associates may be bound by specific contracts (Standard Contractual Clauses or DPAs) to follow policies and procedures which we deem adequate or they may put in place equivalent measures that are compatible with the GDPR rules.

After the end of services the third parties delete or fully anonymize the personal data they obtained when doing business with us.

We might send your personal data to other companies outside the EEA for further processing. We only transfer personal data outside the EEA if it is required for the provision of services to you.

We ensure that our partners offer adequate level of protection as we implement at least one of the following safeguards:

  • Certain providers are located in countries that have been deemed by the European Commission to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data.
  • Where we cooperate with certain providers we use the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission which give the transferred personal data the same protection it has in intra – EU transfers.

Occasionally a transfer might be envisaged to a third country even if none of the above mentioned safeguards apply. Examples of such instances are:

  • We will provide you with the necessary information and the potential risks and ask for your explicit consent for the transfer to the third country not deemed to provide an adequate level of protection,
  • The transfer is necessary for the purposes of entering into an agreement or complying with anobligation under our contract,
