Where the data is processed for the purposes of marketing activities, litigation, to create statistics and improve products and services, to perform creditworthiness and solvency checks, for fraud prevention and detection purposes, to perform internal investigations in order to ensure compliance with applicable laws and the prudent and sound management of the risks of Birdee, the processing is based on a legitimate interest of Birdee.

These data recipients may be located outside of the European Economic Area, in countries which may not provide for a similar level of protection for personal data as is available within the EEA. Birdee will implement appropriate organisational and technical safeguards to protect the personal data for which it acts as data controller at all times.

The User and its beneficial owner(s) may object to the processing of data for marketing purposes at any time by contacting Birdee via the Chat.
The User confirms that it has informed the beneficial owners about the potential processing of their personal data by Birdee, as well as the existence of the beneficial owner’s rights to access and rectify their personal data in accordance with this clause 4.
The data will be kept for the duration necessary for the achievement of the purposes referred above and in any case no longer than permitted by applicable law.
