Lawful basis for the processing of personal information

Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

 

However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you (for example, when providing our services), or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to process personal information about you, or may need to process personal information in order to exercise, establish or defend legal claims.

 

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as the possible consequences, if any, if you do not provide your personal information).

 

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information (including any legitimate interests relied upon), please send an email to privacy@yahaha.com.

 

Disclosure of personal information

For one or more of the purposes mentioned above, we may disclose your personal information to the following categories of recipients:

 

· to our group companies, third party services providers and partners who provide services to us in relation to the Website (for example, to support the delivery of, provide functionality on, or help to enhance the security of our Website), or who otherwise process personal information for purposes that are described in this Privacy Notice or notified to you when we collect your personal information.

 

· to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or (iii) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person;

 

· to an actual or potential buyer (and its agents and advisers) in connection with any actual or proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer it must use your personal information only for the purposes disclosed in this Privacy Notice;

 

· to any other person with your consent to the disclosure.

 

Third party services

The Website may contain links to third party websites or links, which are normally operated by third parties independently from us. This Privacy Notice does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices of any such third parties. You need to refer to their own privacy notices to understand how they may process your personal information. The inclusion of a link on this Website does not imply that we or our affiliates endorse the practices of the linked website or services.

 

Security of my personal information

We use appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the personal information that we collect and process about you. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information. If you feel that the security of any of your personal information processed by us has or may have been compromised, please immediately notify us of the problem by sending an email to privacy@yahaha.com. However, please understand that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

 

International data transfers

Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different from the laws of your country.

 

Specifically, our Website servers are located in Germany, and our group companies and third party service providers and partners may operate in the EEA and around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in any of these countries.

 

We will take appropriate safeguards to ensure that your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice. For example, we will implement the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal information to our non-EEA affiliates and/or service providers, which requires them to protect your personal information in accordance with European Union data protection laws.

 

Data retention

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you services, to keep in touch with you, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

 

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

 

Your data subject rights

You have the following data protection rights:

 

· you may request to access, correct, update or request deletion of your personal information;

· you can object to the processing of your personal information, or ask us to restrict the processing of your personal information;

· if we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

· Other rights as provided by the applicable laws in your country (or areas) of residence, e.g. to complain to the appropriate supervisory authorities.

 

If you are interested in exercising one or more of the rights described above, you can do so at any time by contacting us via privacy@yahaha.com. We will respond to your requests in accordance with applicable data protection laws. We may require proof of your identity before we respond to your requests to protect the security of your personal information.
