If Loacker ever intends to change the purpose for which we use your personal data, we will obtain your consent for that new purpose prior to using your personal data.
2.2 Disclosure/Sharing of Personal Data
Loacker shares your personal data only when we have a legitimate reason for doing so. Loacker will disclose your personal data to third parties for the purpose of providing Site services or with your express consent. Except as noted in this Policy, Loacker does not sell or share your personal data with any person or entity outside of Loacker. Where third parties are involved in the processing or handling of your personal data, Loacker will scrutinize such third parties before and continuously during their involvement and will contractually impose onto them to strictly follow the rules for data privacy and to implement all respective technical and organizational data security and protection measures
Loacker may disclose your personal data to third parties such as marketing agencies and suppliers of data management services to assist it with handling consumer requests, such as where to find Loacker products, questions concerning the ingredients of the products, other information and service requests as well as complaints.
Any companies who partner with or are engaged by Loacker to assist in providing its services, or operating and/or maintaining the Site and related computer systems and networks, may also have access to or receive specific personal data in the performance of their respective services for Loacker or as a partner of Loacker. In the case of contest or promotion administration by a third party service provider, Loacker endeavors to limit the disclosure or sharing of your personal data to the minimum level practicable.
Your personal data may be made available to government institutions and public authorities, or in response to a court order or similar request, if Loacker is required to do so by law, or otherwise made available in compliance with any legal obligation Loacker must uphold.
Loacker may share your personal data or other information in order to avoid imminent physical harm to any person or harm to any Loacker property.
Loacker may transfer your personal data to the legal entity that succeeds to the assets or business of Loacker by any merger, consolidation, combination, reorganization, sale of assets or in connection with any transfer as part of any insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding. In such case, Loacker will make reasonable efforts to cause any successor to agree to abide by the terms of this Policy and protect your personal data.

3. Data Security and Retention
3.1 Basic principle
By taking all the appropriate technical and organizational data security and protection measures, Loacker always endeavors to process your personal data in such a manner that it is secure and particularly inaccessible to unauthorized persons. In this respect, Loacker expressly states that complete data security cannot be guaranteed in any regard, including your personal data sent to the Site or through e-mail communications. Therefore, Loacker recommends sending confidential information by mail
While Loacker takes the issue of protecting your personal data seriously, you should exercise discretion in what information you disclose and/or transmit to the Site. Loacker cannot guarantee that information sent over the Internet is fully secure, and therefore the transmitted information may be intercepted by others before it reaches Loacker. If you are concerned about sending information to Loacker over the Internet, please send the information by mail or call us to make other arrangements. Loacker is not responsible for the security of information sent over the Internet.
If a data breach occurs and jeopardizes the security of your personal data, Loacker will work to address the breach and engage any third party service providers as necessary in doing so. We will notify users of the Site of a data breach within whatever time frame is required by law.
Loacker retains personal data for a reasonable amount of time in order to fulfill the stated purpose for collection and use. Loacker will also retain personal data connected to business records for periods of time required by law. If Loacker determines that personal data in our possession and control is no longer needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, then wewill delete it subject to any legal obligations. Loacker’s retention periods for various types of data will be consistent with applicable law.
To best protect personal data in both storage/rest and in transmission against accidental or intentional manipulation, disclosure, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons, Loacker uses, implements, maintains, and applies appropriate technical and organizational security measures and safeguards that are reasonably designed and continuously reviewed and, when appropriate, improved or enhanced consistent with industry standards
4. Social Media Functions
Loacker uses Facebook social media functions. Loacker may use social media interactive functions of other social media services and providers in the future. The relevant icons and buttons for these social media services function as external links, meaning that information will only be forwarded to these social media providers if these icons are clicked. If you click on one of these icons, you will be forwarded to the website of the corresponding social media provider. In this process, the URL of the current Site is passed on as a parameter. We have no influence on whether or how the social media providers use such data for evaluation. You can find information on this subject in the privacy policies of the relevant social media services. You can find the Facebook data policy here: www.facebook.com/policy.
If you do not want social media sites/networks to gather information on your usage of our Site, please do not click the buttons mentioned above
Loacker may also allow interaction between the Site and other social media sites or applications. This may include the “Like” button or other plugins available through the Site that allow you to share information with persons outside of the Site. Please consult the privacy policies of those third party providers before using them to make sure you are comfortable with the level of sharing
