If we indicate that we are going to use your personal information in connection with a request, order, transaction or agreement (or the preparation thereof) or to provide you with services you have requested (e.g. a website), we do so because it is necessary to fulfil an agreement with you.

If we indicate that we are going to use your personal information in connection with marketing, improving or developing our products or services, for security reasons, or to comply with legal requirements unrelated to your agreement or request, we will do so based on our legitimate interest, the legitimate interest of a third party, or with your consent.

When selecting our subcontractors and partners, their data processing processes are taken into account.
Please note that in certain situations it is possible that personal data may need to be disclosed to governmental authorities due to a court or governmental order or to comply with legal process. We may also disclose your personal information to protect the rights and property of BDW and BDW Business partners, suppliers, customers or third parties where there is a reasonable belief that such rights or property have been or may be impaired.

Security and quality of information
It is our concern to protect your personal data and to ensure its accuracy. BDW has implemented reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. For example, certain particularly sensitive personal data (e.g. credit card data) is encrypted when it is transmitted over the Internet. We also require our suppliers and partners to protect this information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

Personal data will not be kept longer than necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it is processed, including the fulfilment of legal or regulatory obligations (e.g. auditing, billing and legal retention periods), the handling of disputes and the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims in the countries in which we do business.

Because circumstances may vary by context and services, the information provided in the online privacy statement or specific notification may include more detailed information about applicable retention periods.
