Additionally, we also inform you that your personal data may be disclosed to third parties that provide services to the CO-CONTROLLERS in their capacity as data processors. Some of these data processors have data-processing centres located outside the European Economic Area; consequently, your data may be subject to international transfer, in accordance with the applicable legal guarantees. In particular, ANTHESIS LAVOLA uses a couple of third-party technology services (Google Analytics) and operates data centers globally, including in the United States. Before data is transferred to any servers in the United States, it is collected in local servers, where users’ IP addresses are anonymized, and (Mailchimp) is located in the United States to manage the sending of commercial communications via electronic channels. The corresponding international data transfers are carried out under the aegis of standard contractual clauses (SCC) for the transferring of personal data to data processors located in third-party countries approved by the European Commission.

No other international data transfers are envisaged.

How long will we keep your data?

As a general rule, personal data shall be kept while they remain necessary with regard to the purpose for which they were collected, or until you revoke your consent or request the erasure of your data (if this should occur beforehand). We shall also keep your data for the additional amount of time required to comply with any legal obligations that the CO-CONTROLLERS may be required to observe. 

Notwithstanding the above, we hereby inform you that the CO-CONTROLLERS have put in place internal data scrubbing policies designed to regulate the amount of time they keep the personal data they control, so that the data can be deleted when they are no longer necessary and/or suitable for the purpose for which they were collected.

CO-CONTROLLERS will retain the information that has been collected only for as long as is necessary to comply with the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your personal data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements and policies. We will also retain the information for internal analysis purposes.
