Your personal data may be shared by Nine Engineering with the following third parties:
Nine Engineering will only share personal data that is relevant and necessary. We always ensure that appropriate protective measures are taken when we transfer your personal data to third parties. For example, we will, where appropriate, enter into a transferagreement or a processor agreement, which sets out restrictions on the use of your personal data and obligations in relation to the security of your personal data.
If you would be redirected to another website via our Website, other terms and conditions, privacy and cookie policies may apply. We therefore recommend that you read these additional terms and conditions carefully.
Your personal data and your profile will not be lent or sold to third parties without your prior express consent.
The European Economic Area ("EEA") includes the countries of the European Union and Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland. The GDPR requires additional safeguards if Nine Engineering transfers your personal data to countries located outside the EEA.
It is possible that Nine Engineering – through its processors or sub-processors – transfers your personal data to countries outside the EEA. Should a less strict protection for personal data apply in a specific country outside the EEA, Nine Engineering will ensure that the same level of protection is achieved (e.g. by concluding an agreement based on the Standard Contractual Clauses of the European Commission with the (sub-)processor located in a country outside the EEA).
Nine Engineering applies the following retention periods for your personal data:

The measures include:
· Appointment of a Data Protection Officer;
· Encryption of your personal data;
· Awareness raising of personnel;
· Security policy;
· Management plan in case of security incidents;
· Identity and Access Management; and
· Hardware Security.
Despite the aforementioned measures taken by Nine Engineering, you should be aware that there are always risks involved in transmitting personal data over the Internet. The security and protection of your personal data can never be fully guaranteed.
More information about our security measures is available upon simple request.
Within the limits defined in Articles 15-22 of the GDPR, you have the following legal rights in relation to your personal data:

We always try to answer your requests or questions as quickly as possible. It is possible that we will first ask you for proof of identity in order to verify your identity.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent Data Protection Authority if you believe the processing of your personal data violates the applicable regulations. In Belgium, the competent authority is the Data Protection Authority (www.gegevensbeschermingsautoriteit.be, firstname.lastname@example.org, Drukpersstraat 35, 1000 Brussels).
If you believe our business has violated the applicable regulations, we would like to have the opportunity to deal with any issues, so we kindly ask you to contact us first before contacting the Authority.
