Data can be disclosed or shared with our employees in order to provide you with the Service signed up for. Data shall not be disclosed to unauthorised personnel.
Through the use of our Services as well as through the direct or indirect collection of personal data, you are hereby acknowledging an accepting that AffinityDNA may be required to share your personal data with third parties, whether the latter are directly or indirectly related to AffinityDNA, in order to provide the Service required by you. The data will only be shared in ways set forth below.
This transfer may include, but is not limited to:
(a) Service providers: We provide and support some of our Services through contractual arrangements with service providers and other third parties. We and our service providers use a technology called ‘cookies’ which is a piece of software that enables us to collect data about how the website and services are being used and to manage them more efficiently as well as data is collected to deliver Services. For example, we may share your information with our Third Party Agents (TPAs), virtual offices or the testing laboratories so as to provide you with the Service. The company is represented in some countries by authorised TPAs who may require your data in order to provide you with the Service. The laboratories we work with may also have access to your data to provide the Service. This data is then stored or disposed according to the laboratory’s standard operating policies.
(b) Cross-border: Due to the company’s international operations, we may transmit client data across borders to other countries to our affiliates, subsidiaries, service providers and authorised TPAs as necessary to provide the Service.
(c) Legal Requirements: If required to do so by law or in good faith believe this action is necessary we may have to disclose your Personal Data to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of AffinityDNA, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
(d) Business Continuity: Should AffinityDNA enter into the sale of all or part of its assets, we reserve the right to include your data, including personal data, among the assets transferred to the acquiring or surviving company.
It is worth highlighting that data sent via the internet can be transmitted across international borders even when the sender and the receiver of the data are located in the same country. Thus, your data can be transmitted through a country that has a lower level of data protection than that existing in your country of residence.
