5. SHARING PERSONAL DATA
Why we share personal data and to whom
In order to provide our services, we share personal data with our partners. We only share your data when this is allowed by law and all our partners are committed to keeping your data safe. Some of our partners are “data controllers” and others are “data processors”.
We may engage third parties to perform services in connection with operation of our business. Examples of these services include order processing, payment services and authentication and fraud detection. We provide personal data to these third parties, but we authorize them to use the information only in connection with the services they perform.
The below described partners are data controllers meaning that they are directly responsible for the processing of your data. We only share personal data to the extent it is required for performance of their services, e.g. payment or shipping.
When you complete an order, your payment is handled by our payment solution partners. Some of our payment solution partners are data controllers such as (Shopify Payments, Klarna and Paypal). In order to be able to offer you these payment options, we will pass certain aspects of your personal information, such as contact and order details, in order for the payment providers to assess whether you qualify for their payment options and to tailor the payment options for you. You can find more information about these providers, including their terms and conditions and privacy policies on their websites.
Afterwards, your order is sent to our warehouse partner. When your order is packed and ready to ship, we share your name, address, email, and phone number with our carrier partners to fulfill your delivery.
For marketing purposes, we may share non-reversible and encrypted (hashed) information about you and your use of our websites and services with our advertising partners who may combine it with other information that you have provided to them directly or that they have collected themselves. We also share information such as your IP address and order information with our affiliate partners to settle commission for their reference to our web shop.
We may also disclose personal data to third-party providers acting on behalf of J.Lindeberg and approved by the company.

These providers are committed to confidentiality and are not permitted to use your personal data for any other purposes. We also require them to use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data.
Our technical service providers process your personal data when they have access to our databases or store personal data in their applications. These service providers include, for example, hosting providers, providers of our website platform and providers of message distribution tools. In addition, we have partners who provide tools related to customer service and customer experiences, e.g. a chat tool on our website or a customer experience feedback tool.
Part of those service providers are located outside of your country, notably outside the EU. We have taken steps to ensure all personal data is provided with adequate protection and that all transfers of personal data, including outside the EU are done lawfully. Where we transfer personal data outside of the EU to a country not determined by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, the transfers will be under an agreement which covers the EU requirements for the transfer of personal data outside the EU, such as the European Commission approved standard contractual clauses, or under other appropriate safeguards as described in section 6 below.
Other situations where we share data
For customer club members, we share information about your orders and other activities on our online shops such as your online shopping bag and your wish list with the customer club.

We also report fraud incidents to the relevant law enforcement authorities.
We may also disclose or otherwise process your personal data, in accordance with applicable law, to defend our legitimate interests (for example, in civil or criminal legal proceedings). For example, we may disclose such personal data as necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against a person or entity who may be violating our Terms and Conditions or Policies, or who may be causing injury to, or interfering with, other users of our digital platforms.
In the event that J. Lindeberg or group companies, or all or part of its or their assets, are acquired by a third party, your personal data may be included in the transferred assets.
6. TRANSFERRING DATA OUTSIDE THE EU
Personal data may be transferred to the country where you are located or where some of our partners of our partners handling your personal data is located. This includes transfers to countries outside the European Union (“EU”) and to countries that do not have laws that provide adequate protection for personal data according to the European Commission.
Where we transfer personal data outside of the EU to a country not determined by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, the transfers will be under an agreement which covers the EU requirements for the transfer of personal data outside the EU, such as the European Commission approved standard contractual clauses, or under other appropriate safeguards.

Some of our partners handle your personal data outside the EU. Unless otherwise stated, the transferred data is safeguarded by the EU Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses.
