3. What data do we share, with whom and why?
(a) Crown Gabelstapler GmbH & Co. KG is part of the Crown Group headquartered in New Bremen, Ohio, USA. To provide you with our services, we may transmit personal data to other companies belonging to the Crown Group, both within and outside of the European Economic Area (which comprises all the Member States of the European Union and Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein). The transfer and processing of your personal data is necessary for contract fulfillment, i.e. to provide you with our services (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR) or is in our legitimate interest in collaborating with other companies in the Crown Group (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR).
(b) To the extent that we incorporate service providers in the processing of personal data (such as marketing agencies, e-commerce fulfillment partners, market research companies, software, website hosting or other IT services providers), this is only done after concluding a so-called job processing contract in which we require our service providers to comply with the strict data protection requirements of the European Union, to only process personal data for the services requested by us or in accordance with our instructions, and to keep such data confidential.
(c) In other cases, we only disclose your personal data if we are required to do so, for example by law or by official or court order (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit c GDPR) or if you want us to do so and have consented to the disclosure (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR).
(d) When we send your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area, which lack an adequate level of data protection, we take suitable measures before each transmission to ensure that your personal data is fully protected at all times, particularly by concluding the standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission. Upon request, you can obtain a copy of the suitable and reasonable guaranties we have implemented here: EU-DataProtection@crown.com.

If you wish to make use of your right to object, sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org is sufficient.
