As part of the execution of our services, we may need to outsource, either in whole or in part, some of our tasks to technical subcontractors who are associated with us by means of a contract, in particular to ensure the operation of our website.
Furthermore, Kanigen Works Benelux shall require any subcontractors to observe the data protection legislation and shall ensure sufficient guarantees regarding the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational measures in such a way that the processing fulfils the requirements set out by the data protection legislation and ensures that your rights are protected.
As a matter of principle, we do not sell or divulge to third parties, in any way whatsoever, data that we collect about you.
Your data may only be communicated to partners of Kanigen Works Benelux for direct marketing purposes if you have given your explicit consent to this end.
