GEYER may also obtain your personal information if you are a customer of a company that cooperates with GEYER. We may also hold personal data when we buy another company to which you are a customer.
Disclosure of personal data to third parties
We may disclose your personal information to service providers, corporate partners, and others in accordance with applicable law.
For example, GEYER may sell a product or offer a service as part of a joint marketing effort with another company (corporate partner). We’ll let you know about such a relationship with other companies, as well as who these companies are, before processing your data for the purpose of a joint marketing effort.
If the law requires us to obtain your consent, or if for any other reason we deem it necessary in some cases, we will obtain your consent before we disclose your personal data.
Agreements with these corporate partners will limit the purposes for which your personal data may be used and disclosed, and will require adequate protection of your personal data.
GEYER may sell a business or part of a business to another company. This transfer of ownership may include the transfer of your personal data to the buyer, which are directly related to the particular business.
Once you submit your personal data to GEYER, you have reasonable access to this information so that you can update, modify it, or, if applicable, delete it. For GEYER, you can do this by logging into your account and going to “personal settings”, where you can also change your preferences about how GEYER communicates with you.
We will also give you the option to “deny” when necessary and we will comply with local law.
We advise you to update your personal settings and personal information, as well as to keep it up to date.
We want to get to know you better so that we can serve you better and at the same time respect your choices about how we use your personal data.
Your personal data may be transferred from your country to other GEYER companies located in different parts of the world. These companies may contact you for GEYER products, services, or special offers that may interest you. If required by local law, we will ask for your prior consent to the transfer of your personal data outside your geographical area.
If you do not want us to send you personalized offers or information, you can let us know by selecting the appropriate checkbox on the signup form or reply card, or by selecting the “deny” box in the emails you receive.
If required by local law, we will ask that you select the “consent” box or give your explicit consent to the processing of your personal data. For example, when required by local law, we will only send you newsletters (if you subscribe to them). Likewise, when required by local law, we will ask that you select the “consent” box before using sophisticated profile creation techniques.
Since GEYER sells thousands of products in hundreds of countries, you may have already disclosed your personal data to us through a response card, call center or otherwise. Your current decision not to register does not affect the personal data you have already submitted to GEYER. Of course, you can always unsubscribe from any targeted communication with GEYER or change your personal profile data.
