Global organisation

Acropetal is a global organisation. Whilst we have distinct legal entities (e.g., country subsidiaries) in many parts of the world, our internal processes and infrastructure are international in scope and nature and generally cross country borders. Accordingly, you should be aware that we may share your Personal Data inside Acropetal and transfer it to countries in the world where we have data centres or otherwise do business. Some of these countries do not have specific data protection laws and so may provide less legal protection for your Personal Data. In these instances, Acropetal will process your Personal Data in the manner described by this Policy and in accordance with applicable law.

Third-party suppliers

Like many organisations, we use third-party suppliers to collect, use and otherwise process Personal Data on our behalf. Our practice is to require such third parties to handle Personal Data in accordance with Acropetal’s privacy and security policies.

Business reorganisations

Like many organisations, Acropetal may reorganise its business operations around the world from time to time, whether by buying new businesses or selling or merging existing businesses. This may involve us disclosing Personal Data to prospective or actual purchasers of parts of our business, or receiving personal data from potential sellers. It is our practice to seek appropriate confidentiality protection for Personal Data disclosed in these types of transactions.

Legal disclosures

Acropetal may disclose your Personal Data in order to enforce our website Terms of Use or in urgent circumstances to protect personal safety, the public or Acropetal’s websites.
