RECIPIENTS OF PERSONAL DATA AND TRANSFERS OUTSIDE THE EU/EES
Being responsible for Personal data, Linc may instruct a partner or supplier to carry out the action outlined above, for example IT support, law firms, consultancies etc.. Such processing will only be conducted for the purpose specified. Certain partners and suppliers may have parts of their operations outside the EU/EES, (a so-called third country). Such transfers are made only to such countries that, according to the EU Commission, have a sufficiently robust level of protection; or to suppliers that are subject to legally binding and enforceable instruments that guarantee the security of the data in question.

Linc also discloses your Personal Information to third parties when investigating suspected crimes or if we are otherwise obliged to do so by law or government decision.

Linc or a substantial portion of Linc may be sold to third parties. In such a case, your Personal Data may be shared with such third party as a result of such sale. Such division then takes place on the basis of Linc’s (or its shareholders’) legitimate interest in being able to carry out such a sale.
