Your personal data are very important for TOUS, so it is committed to processing them with the utmost confidentiality and discretion and to implementing all those security measures that it deems appropriate and reasonable.

Social networks are part of the daily life of many Internet users, and for this purpose TOUS has created different profiles in them. 


All users have the opportunity to join the pages or groups that TOUS has in different social networks. However, it must be taken into account that, unless we request your information directly (for example, through marketing actions, competitions, promotions, or any other valid form), your data will belong to the corresponding social network. Therefore, it is recommended that you carefully read its conditions of use and privacy policies and ensure that you configure your preferences regarding the processing of data.

 

  1. International Transfers

As a general rule, TOUS tries to keep your personal data within the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA). However, on an exceptional basis, TOUS may need to provide them to other companies in the Group or to service providers located in other countries, either by necessity to provide the requested service, or to be able to offer you the service with the highest quality standards. 


When the data need to be transferred to a third party in the context of a commercial relationship or corporate transaction (including mergers and acquisitions, among others), the companies that could receive your information are the suppliers, subsidiaries or franchisees, or, where appropriate, potential purchasers and advisers (legal, accounting or financial, among others) involved. TOUS will only communicate your personal data to those third parties to the extent that this communication is necessary for the execution of the services or to evaluate or complete the relationship or transaction.

In these situations, TOUS guarantees the application of all necessary measures and controls to guarantee and protect the processing of your personal data, such as:

1. Communication to countries that, despite not being part of the EU or the EEA, have been considered by the European Commission as countries that have data protection regulations that guarantee a level of security similar to that applicable in Europe.

2. Existence of contractual clauses of the type approved by the European Commission: to ensure that companies in third countries that are not part of the EU or the EEA comply with a similar level of protection. TOUS will sign these agreements as long as there is no equivalent alternative that guarantees the protection of your personal data.

3. Definition of binding corporate rules (BCRs) approved by the companies, which are reviewed and approved by control authorities, with the aim of ensuring that the company, in any country, to whom we provide your data complies with an adequate level of protection.
