  • Sharing your personal data

In certain circumstance, we need to share personal data in compliance with legal requirements (e.g. with State agencies), in relation to contractual requirements (for example, with landlords or legal advisors) or in pursuit of legitimate company interests (for example with selected service providers to enable payments, repairs, assessments or installations).

We will not transfer any data to a third country or international organisation without your explicit consent and without appropriate privacy safeguards in place.
