Which specific Cookies are used on this Website and what is their purpose?

Unless legally obliged to do so, we will not share, i.e., we will not deliver, send or give, your personal data to anyone. However, it is conceivable that our “data processors”, for example, our logistics and IT services providers, could need access to your personal data in order to provide their services. If that is the case, they will only have access to your data as per our instructions and under our responsibility. Our data processors will be located, preferably, in the European Union. However, it is possible that, on occasions, we will need to use data processors located in third countries outside the European Union (e.g., cloud storage and office automation management services) which the European Commission believes do not yet offer a level of data protection equivalent to that provided across the European Union; in this case we will take all the required precautions to make sure your data is transferred securely and legally. If you would like more information about this topic, please send us an email.
