RECIPIENTS OF PERSONAL DATA
By law, we may share your personal information:
- Law enforcement agencies or government agencies or authorized third parties and partners in response to a verified request for a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, or you, or our other users to legal liability.
- The buyer or potential buyer of any business or property we are or are considering selling.

We may send personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"), including countries that have different data protection standards than those applicable in the EEA. We have offices and facilities located in Germany, Belgium and Ukraine. Transfers to each of these countries will be protected by appropriate safeguards, namely the use of standard data protection clauses accepted or approved by the European Commission, a copy of which may be obtained at any time by e-mail.
The data is stored for a period appropriate to the purposes for which it was collected, and by default it is destroyed after one (1) year of inactivity after the date of collection, unless the law states otherwise.
However, keep in mind that the relevant subscription data for your current services (e.g., Bulletins) will be removed one (1) month later after notifying us that you want to unsubscribe from such services.
We may update this notice from time to time by publishing the new version on our website. Check this page from time to time to make sure you're happy with the changes.
