Does Gate2Buy Europe Share Your Personal Information?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling our customers' personal information to others. Gate2Buy Europe shares customers' information only as described below and with Gate2Buyand the subsidiaries that Gate2Buycontrols that are either subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

•   Transactions involving Third Parties: We make available to you services, products, applications, or skills provided by third parties for use on or through Gate2Buy Services. For example, you can order products from third parties through our retail websites, download applications from third-party application providers from our App Store, and enable third-party skills through our Alexa services. We also offer services or sell product lines jointly with third-party businesses, such as co-branded credit cards. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.

•   Third Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders for products or services, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analysing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing payments, transmitting content, scoring credit risk, and providing customer service. These third-party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by applicable data protection laws.

•   Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy other businesses or services. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that Gate2Buyor substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

•   Protection of Gate2Buy Europe and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of Gate2Buy Europe, our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Transfers out of the European Economic Area.

Whenever we transfer personal information to countries outside of the European Economic Area in the course of sharing information as set out above, we will ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by the applicable laws on data protection.

•   We follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) when handling credit card data.

•   We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personal customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
