To fulfill the purposes above, Cevinio may need to disclose to, transfer, or otherwise share your personal data with a select number of trusted service providers to whom we have outsourced the processing (including storage) of personal data. These service providers are carefully selected and meet high data protection and security standards.

The legal basis of this data processing is ‘Legitimate interest’ [Article 6(1)(f) GDPR].
  • Disclosure in the event of a merger, sale, or other asset transfers. If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, purchase or sale of assets, or transition of service to another provider, then personal data may be sold or transferred as part of such a transaction, as permitted by law and/or contract. The legal basis for such processing would be ‘Legitimate interest’ [Article 6(1)(f) GDPR].
