If we ask you to pro­vi­de per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion to comply with a le­gal requi­re­ment or to per­form a cont­ract with you, we will make this clear at the re­le­vant time and ad­vi­se you whet­her the pro­vi­sion of your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion is man­da­to­ry or not (as well as of the pos­sible con­sequences if you do not pro­vi­de your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion).

Si­mi­lar­ly, if we col­lect and use your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion in re­liance on our le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rests (or tho­se of any third par­ty), we will make clear to you at the re­le­vant time what tho­se le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rests are.


6. Transfers of personal information outside the EU/EEA

We ope­ra­te at a glo­bal le­vel and, as a re­sult, your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion may be trans­fer­red to, and proces­sed in, count­ries ot­her than the count­ry in which you are re­si­dent. In some ca­ses, the­se count­ries may be loca­ted out­si­de the Eu­ro­pean Union / Eu­ro­pean Eco­no­mic Area (EU/EEA) and the­re­fo­re may have data pro­tec­tion laws that are dif­fe­rent to the laws of your count­ry of re­si­dence.

Speci­fical­ly, our Web­si­te ser­vers are loca­ted in the EU/EEA, but we may sha­re or give access to your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion to Ha­ger af­fi­lia­tes, third par­ty ser­vice pro­vi­ders and part­ners who may be ope­ra­ting out­si­de the EU/EEA (for example, we may use web hos­ting pro­vi­ders or cloud com­pu­ting ser­vice pro­vi­ders who sto­re or access your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion out­si­de the EU/EEA).

Whe­re that is the case, we make sure that your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion is trans­fer­red to third count­ries out­si­de the EU/EEA that are dee­med "adequa­te" by the Eu­ro­pean Com­mis­sion (a list of adequa­te count­ries is avai­lable here), or al­ter­na­ti­ve­ly, whe­re your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion is not sent to a count­ry that pro­vi­des adequa­te pro­tec­tion, we will put in place ap­propria­te sa­fe­guards to gua­ran­tee that your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion re­mains pro­tec­ted whi­le it is being proces­sed out­si­de the EU/EEA in accor­dance with applicable pri­vacy laws. The­se ap­propria­te sa­fe­guards may inclu­de sig­ning the Eu­ro­pean Com­mis­sion’s Stan­dard Cont­rac­tual Clauses with the Ha­ger af­fi­lia­te, third par­ty ser­vice pro­vi­der or part­ner out­si­de the EU/EEA with whom we sha­re your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion. For furt­her in­for­ma­tion about trans­fers of per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion out­si­de the EU/EEA, plea­se re­fer to the "How to con­tact us" sec­tion be­low.

7. How long we store your personal information

We will re­tain your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion for as long as neces­sa­ry to enable us to ful­fil the pur­po­ses desc­ri­bed in this No­tice and whe­re we have an on­going le­gi­ti­ma­te busi­ness need to do so (for example, to pro­vi­de you with a ser­vice you have reques­ted).

Once the pur­po­se for proces­sing your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion no lon­ger exists, or the pe­riod of re­ten­tion has ex­pi­red, or if you ask us to de­le­te your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion, we may con­ti­nue to sto­re your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion for a li­mi­ted pe­riod of time if neces­sa­ry to comply with applicable le­gal, tax or accoun­ting requi­re­ments.

When we no lon­ger have a pur­po­se to process your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion, we will make sure your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion is eit­her de­le­ted or ano­ny­mi­sed.

8. How we protect your personal information

We are com­mit­ted to en­su­ring the secu­ri­ty of your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion. We uti­lize ro­bust precau­tions to pro­tect the con­fi­den­tia­li­ty and secu­ri­ty of the per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion wit­hin our Web­si­te, by emplo­ying tech­no­lo­gical, phy­sical and ad­mi­ni­stra­ti­ve secu­ri­ty sa­fe­guards, such as fi­rewalls and ca­re­ful­ly de­ve­lo­ped secu­ri­ty proce­du­res, for example, when you en­ter con­fi­den­tial in­for­ma­tion (such as lo­gin cre­den­tials or in­for­ma­tion sub­mit­ted from wit­hin the Web­si­te). We enc­rypt the trans­mis­sion of that in­for­ma­tion using secu­re soc­ket layer tech­no­lo­gy (SSL). The­se tech­no­lo­gies, proce­du­res and ot­her mea­su­res are used in an ef­fort to en­su­re that your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion re­mains safe, secu­re, and only avai­lable to you and to tho­se you aut­ho­rized to access your per­so­nal in­for­ma­tion. Howe­ver, no in­ter­net, e-mail or ot­her elect­ro­nic trans­mis­sion is ever ful­ly secu­re or er­ror free, so you should take care in deci­ding what in­for­ma­tion you send to us in this way.


9. Minors
