3.1 External service providers

Malao may engage external service providers who act as our data processors to provide certain services to us, such as email, Website, marketing or other IT services. While providing these services, the external service providers may have access to or process your personal data.

Based on the data processing agreements concluded with them, the external service providers used are obligated to take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data processed and to process the personal data only in accordance with the assignment.

3.2 Additional recipients

Malao may also disclose your personal data to law enforcement and government agencies, legal advisers and other external advisers in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Laws. The legal basis for this processing is compliance with legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR) to which Malao is subject or our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR), such as exercising or defense of legal claims.

4. DATA TRANSFER TO THIRD COUNTRIES

Your personal data that we process may be transferred to and processed by recipients in third countries outside the European Union (EU) / European Economic Area (EEA) that do not provide for an adequate level of data protection, such as the United States. Some recipients in the USA may be certified according to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and thus ensure an adequate level of data protection from the perspective of EU data protection law. As an example, data transfers to Google are based on the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.

To the extent we transfer your personal data to countries which do not ensure an adequate level of data protection from the perspective of EU data protection law, we base the transfer on appropriate safeguards, such as the standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission. You may request a copy of the appropriate safeguards by contacting us at the contact details provided in section 7. Access is limited to recipients who need the respective data to perform their tasks.

5. YOUR RIGHTS AS A DATA SUBJECT AND HOW TO ASSERT THEM

If you have declared your consent to the processing of your personal data, you can withdraw this consent at any time with future effect. Such withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to the consent withdrawal. If you withdraw your consent, we will no longer process your personal data unless any other (legal) basis permits this. However, if the consent is withdrawn and no other legal basis exists, we must delete the personal data immediately (Art. 17 para. 2 lit. b) GDPR).

According to Applicable Data Protection Laws, as a data subject you may have the right of access (Art. 15 GDPR), the right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR), the right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR), the right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) and the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR). The right to access and the right to erasure may be restricted under certain circumstances in accordance with applicable local data protection law. In addition, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR).

Under certain circumstances, on grounds relating to your particular situation, you have the right to object at any time (Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR) to the processing of personal data concerning you processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR). Furthermore, if your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for these purposes, to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing (Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR). In this case, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.

In order to exercise your rights, please contact us under the contact details provided in section 7.

6. STORAGE PERIOD OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Your personal data will be stored as long as necessary for the purposes of the data processing described in section 1 above. If Malao no longer processes your personal data for the described purposes, we will remove it from our systems and records or make it completely anonymous so that you can no longer be identified from it. Your data will not be erased or made completely anonymous if and as long as we have to store your data in order to fulfil legal or regulatory obligations, e.g. legal retention requirements, which may arise from the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, HGB) or the German Tax Code (Abgabenordnung, AO), for example, which stipulate retention periods of 6 to 10 years, or if we need the data to preserve evidence within the limitation period, which is usually 3 years, but can be up to 30 years in individual cases.
