We may share your personal data to the extent permitted by law as follows:

Otherwise, we will only disclose your personal data when you direct or give us permission, when we are required by applicable law or regulations or judicial or official request to do so, or when we suspect fraudulent or criminal activities.
ARE YOU REQUIRED TO PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA?
As a general principle, you will provide us with your personal data entirely voluntary; there are generally no detrimental effects on you if you choose not to consent or to provide personal data. However, there are circumstances in which we cannot take action without certain of your personal data, for example because this personal data is required to process your requests, provide you with access to a web offering or newsletter. In these cases, it will unfortunately not be possible for us to provide you with what you request without the relevant personal data.
Newsletters are sent only to users who specifically ask to receive them. By subscribing to a newsletter, you agrees that your email address may be used by us to send out newsletters. With each newsletter, we offer the option of correcting, updating or removing the information that you have provided. Users can unsubscribe from our newsletters at any time, using a link provided in every email. We do track openings and clicks on our newsletters in order to improve our offering and to increase the relevance to your interests.
