Who do we disclose your personal data to or share your personal data with?

We rely on digital services provided by external service providers when processing personal data in our operations. Such services are subcontracted in terms of the GDPR and include e.g. email, data storage, website hosting, digital co-working space, email marketing platform, customer support tickets, etc. These services are governed by separate service agreements between us and the service provider, and we remain responsible for the personal data processed through them as data controllers.

Controller to controller disclosures

When delivering goods to you, we will share your delivery details with 3rd party delivery partner determined by you in connection with placing your order with us. When delivering goods abroad we will also need to disclose the personal data included in the order to the customs of the destination country. Sharing of your delivery details is based on our legitimate interest of delivering the ordered goods to you and fulfilling the contract between us.

In case of non-performance of payment obligations by customer, we will share the details necessary for the collection of the outstanding payments to an external collection agency. The sharing of your data is based on our legitimate interest to execute our agreement and to safeguard our rights.

The abovementioned external parties will apply their own privacy policies to the processing of personal data.

Is your personal data transferred internationally?

Within the Fibox group, your personal data may be transferred between different Fibox locations globally as we may have organized some of our group internal processes in a way that requires such transfers to take place.

Fibox locations outside of the EU/EEA are Australia, Belarus, Canada, China, Great Britain, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan and the USA. In internal transfers of personal data we rely on either the European Commission’s adequacy decisions (Canada, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland) or in standard contractual clauses adopted and approved by the European Commission. We also limit the shared data to what is necessary for the purpose of each transfer.

We also use service providers (data processors) who, in some cases, operate outside of the EU/EEA area or may transfer personal data to their sub-processors operating outside the EU/EEA. Also these transfers are always governed by appropriate safeguards, such as the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission.
