In this context, your personal data may be disclosed to transport partners, data centres, financial institutions, insurance companies, IT partners, payment providers, software suppliers, cloud partners, etc.

If it is necessary for NUTRISAN to disclose your personal data to third parties in this context, the third party in question is obliged to use your personal data in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Statement.

However, without prejudice to the above, NUTRISAN may disclose your personal data:

  • To the competent authorities (i) where NUTRISAN is obliged to do so by law or in the context of judicial or future legal proceedings and (ii) to safeguard and defend NUTRISAN’s rights.
  • When NUTRISAN or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case your personal data collected by NUTRISAN will be one of the transferred assets.

In all other cases, NUTRISAN will not sell, rent or pass on your personal data to third parties unless it has (i) obtained your consent and (ii) entered into a data processing agreement with the third party in question, which contains the necessary guarantees regarding the confidentiality and privacy compliant treatment of your personal data.

VIII. Security of personal data

NUTRISAN undertakes to take appropriate and reasonable physical, technological and organisational security measures in order to prevent (i) unauthorised or unlawful access to your personal data, as well as (ii) the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal data.

NUTRISAN will store all personal data it has collected in the cloud with data centres in the EU.

Notwithstanding (i) NUTRISAN’s safety policy, (ii) the controls it carries out and (iii) the actions it takes in this regard, an infallible level of safety cannot be guaranteed. No method of transmission or transmission via the Internet or any method of electronic storage is 100% secure, so that NUTRISAN cannot guarantee absolute security in this respect.

Finally, the security of your account will also depend on the confidentiality of your password and other account information. NUTRISAN will never ask for your password, nor will you be obliged to provide it yourself. If you have given your password to a third party, that third party will gain access to your account and your personal data via your password. In that case, you are responsible for the actions taken by the use that is made of your account. NUTRISAN therefore strongly recommends that you change your password immediately if you determine that someone has access to your account, and contact NUTRISAN immediately.
