Klimato may engage external service providers, who act as data processors of Klimato, to provide certain services to Klimato, such as website or application service providers, marketing service providers or IT- and cloud service providers. In this case, the external service providers may have access to, store and/or may process your personal data in compliance with the legal basis of legitimate interest. We request those external service providers to implement and apply security safeguards to ensure the privacy and security of your personal data. The recipients will only gain access to your personal data to the extent necessary for them to fulfil their mission and they may not share or use the data for other purposes. An example of such service providers are Amazon Web Services (AWS) and MongoDB Atlas, which Klimato uses for cloud database storing and application hosting.
We may also disclose your personal data to any member of our group of companies (this means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and all its subsidiaries) insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes, and the legal bases, set out in this policy. Your personal data may also be shared with our business partners for marketing purposes, to the extent you have provided your consent.
In addition to the foregoing, Klimato may transfer – in compliance with applicable data protection law – personal data to law enforcement agencies, governmental authorities, legal counsels, insurers, external consultants, or business partners.

Personal Data may be transferred to and processed by recipients which are located inside or outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). The countries include those listed at the European Commission website which provide an adequate level of data protection from a European data protection law perspective. Other recipients might be located in other countries which do not adduce an adequate level of protection from a European data protection law perspective. Klimato will take all necessary measures to ensure that transfers out of the EEA are adequately protected as required by applicable data protection law. With respect to transfers to countries not providing an adequate level of data protection, we base the transfer on appropriate safeguards, such as standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission or by a supervisory authority, approved code of conducts together with binding and enforceable commitments of the recipient, or approved certification mechanisms together with binding and enforceable commitments of the recipient.
