6. Would you like to know more about how we balance interests when processing personal data? 

As outlined previously, in some cases we process your personal data based on our legitimate interest (that is to say, according to a so-called balance of interests). A balance of interests is one of several legal grounds for the processing of personal data according to applicable data protection rules. 

If you have any questions or would like to know more about how we balance interests, please feel free to contact us. 

7. Who is granted access to your personal data? 

Your personal data is shared with so-called ‘data processors’, the companies which process personal data on our behalf. For example, access to your personal data is granted to business partners and other suppliers, including IT and systems providers delivering operations and development services and systems and cloud services support. 

We have signed personal data agreements with them requiring them to process data safely, accurately and confidentially in accordance with our instructions. Should you send us an employment application, your data will, in some cases, be shared with recruitment agencies which process applications and application documents, or, if you have provided such a company with personal data, this will be transferred to us. 

8. Will your personal data be transferred to other countries? 

Some of our IT providers conduct their business activities outside the EU/EEA. As a result, your personal data may be transferred outside the EU/EEA. When such transfers take place, we take special security measures to ensure an adequate level of protection for your personal data, which may mean, for example, that we sign agreements including standardized data transfer clauses adopted by the EU Commission.
