What about the use of my personal data by third parties?
- CED has made agreements (so-called Data Processing Agreements) with parties to which it may transfer your personal data (depending on the processing activity), for processing your personal data on behalf of CED, so that there are sufficient privacy and security measures in place to ensure that your data is processed in accordance with the law, with CED’s own policies and with this CED Privacy Statement.

Further, the confidentiality obligations and security measures required by law to prevent your personal data from being disclosed to other parties are always applicable.
