WSAB may disclose personal data to the data subject, to third parties such as companies that WSAB has an ongoing business relationship with and to public authorities.

When your personal information is shared with a company that is an independent personal data Controller, the company or authority’s privacy policy and personal data management apply.

In some cases, personal data may be disclosed to a party outside the European Economic Area (EEA), and personal data may therefore be processed outside the EEA.

Your personal data is only shared with a personal data processor for purposes that are consistent with the purposes for which we have collected the information. WSAB has written agreements with its personal data Processors and conducts ongoing checks to ensure that the Processors are able to provide sufficient guarantees regarding the security and confidentiality of personal data, as well as following our restrictions and requirements regarding the transfer of personal data to third parties outside the EEA.
