THIRD PARTY RELATIONSHIPS
If you have indicated that you would like us to, we may also pass your information onto other companies in the French Connection Group, or carefully selected third parties who may inform you, by post or electronic means (e-mail or SMS), about their products and services which may be of interest to you. If you do not want us to pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, please leave the relevant box situated on the form on which we collect your data blank, and we will make sure we don’t.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties who perform functions on our behalf such as shipping, fulfilling orders, processing payments, carrying out promotional services or data management. We will only provide these companies with the information which they need to carry out their services and they will not be permitted to use the information for other purposes. You also acknowledge and agree that in certain circumstances we may be obliged to disclose personal information relating to you to third parties, for example, in order to conform to any requirements of law or to comply with any legal process, to prevent and detect fraud and to protect and defend our rights and property.
We may also disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our holding company and its subsidiaries. In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, it may become necessary to disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such transaction. If either French Connection Group PLC or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, the personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.
