Whom do we share your information with?
We share your personal information with third parties who perform functions on our behalf and who also provide services to us, such as professional advisors, IT consultants carrying out testing and development work on our business technology systems, research and mailing houses and function coordinators. These third parties comply with similar and equally stringent undertakings of privacy and confidentiality.
We also share your personal information with our other group companies for internal reasons, primarily for business and operational purposes. To find out more about the companies with the MC group that may handle your personal information please see the link at the top of this page.
As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or merges with us your personal information will be disclosed to such entity.

Transfers of your personal information outside of your home country
Your personal information may be processed by MC, its group companies and those other parties described above, outside the country in which you are based. Where the data protection regulator in your home country has not issued an adequacy decision in relation to the jurisdiction where your personal information is processed, we will ensure that there are adequate mechanisms in place to protect your personal information in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy law. We will do this through use of data transfer agreements implementing standard data protection clauses. You can receive further information about the data transfer agreements that concern your personal information by contacting us at email@example.com
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect, including strong data encryption, access monitoring and password protection. Access to the web portal is logged for security threats.
If at any point you suspect or become aware of a security incident (e.g., you receive a suspicious communication from someone holding themselves out to be an MC employee or from an unauthorised website claiming to be affiliated with MC), please forward the communication to us or report the incident by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible.
How long will we keep your personal information?
We will always keep your personal information for the period required by law. We will also keep your personal information where we need to do so in connection with legal action or an investigation involving MC. Otherwise, we will only keep your personal information for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined above and in any event for no more than six years thereafter.
What are your rights?
By law, you have a number of rights when it comes to your personal information. Further information and advice about your rights can be obtained from the data protection regulator in your country.
What does this mean?
1. The right to object to processing
You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing for direct marketing (i.e., if you no longer want to be contacted with potential opportunities).
2. The right to be informed
You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we’re providing you with the information in this notice.
3. The right of access
You have the right to obtain access to your information (if we’re processing it), and certain other information (similar to that provided in this notice). This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your information in accordance with applicable law.
4. The right to rectification
You are entitled to have your information corrected if it’s inaccurate or incomplete.
5. The right to erasure
This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there is no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
6. The right to restrict processing
You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.
7. The right to data portability
You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal information for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability.
8. The right to lodge a complaint
You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your personal information with your national data protection regulator.
9. The right to withdraw consent
If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal information with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your personal information for marketing purposes.
We usually act on requests and provide information free of charge, but may charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs of providing the information for:
- baseless or excessive/repeated requests, or
- further copies of the same information.
Alternatively, we may be entitled to refuse to act on the request.
Please consider your request responsibly before submitting it. We’ll respond as soon as we can. Generally, this will be within one month from when we receive your request but, if the request is going to take longer to deal with, we’ll come back to you and let you know.

Our website or marketing email messages sometimes include links to other websites which are not within our control. Once you have left our website/marketing email message, we cannot be held responsible for the content of other websites or the protection and privacy of any information which you provide to those websites.
