4. What is the legal basis for our use of your personal information?

The majority of your personal information is collected, used and disclosed in order to ensure the correct performance of your employment agreement with Favro. Some of your personal information is also used to comply with binding legal obligations in relation to your employment. A limited amount of your personal data may be used to fulfill the legitimate interests of Favro, where such legitimate interests take precedence over your rights and freedoms as an individual.

5. When do we ​disclose​ your personal information?

We may share your information:

  • with our employees, suppliers, consultants and other parties who require such information to assist us with establishing, managing or terminating our employment relationship with you;
  • with Favro subsidiaries and affiliated entities that provide services or conduct data processing on our behalf, or for data centralization and/or logistics purposes;
  • with suppliers, consultants, marketing partners, and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf;
  • in response to a request for information by a competent authority if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or is otherwise required by, any applicable law, regulation, ordinance, license, operating agreement, or legal process. In such a case, we will endeavour to not disclose more personal information than is required under the circumstances;
  • with law enforcement officials, government authorities, or other third parties if we believe your actions are inconsistent with our agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Favro or others;
  • during emergency situations or where necessary to protect the safety of a person or group of persons;
  • in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, consolidation or restructuring, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by or into another company;
  • if we otherwise notify you and you consent to the sharing;
  • in an aggregated and/or anonymized form which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.
  • When we share personal information with other parties, as described above, we typically require that they only use or disclose such personal information in a manner consistent with the use and disclosure provisions of this policy.
  • We may share personal information with parties both in and outside of your home jurisdiction, and as result, we may transfer the information described in this policy to, and process and store it in, countries outside the European Union (“​EU​”) or European Economic Area (“​EEA​”), some of which may have less protective data protection laws than your country. Where this is the case, we will take appropriate measures to protect your personal information in accordance with this policy, primarily by using so called standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission.

6. How is your personal information protected?

Favro endeavours to maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to protect your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification or disclosure. Such measures include, but are not limited to, encryption of stored data, 2-factor authentication, firewalls.

7. How long is your personal information retained?

Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, Favro endeavours to retain your personal information only for as long as we believe is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the personal information was collected (including, for the purpose of meeting any legal, accounting or other reporting requirements or obligations). We may, instead of destroying or erasing your personal information, make it anonymous such that it cannot be associated with or tracked back to you.

8. Changes to the policy

We may from time to time change this policy to reflect changes in legal or regulatory obligations or in the manner in which we deal with your personal information. We will communicate any revised version of this policy. Any changes to this policy will be effective from the time they are communicated, provided that any change that relates to why we collect, use or disclose your personal information will not apply to you where your consent is required, until we have obtained your consent to such change.
