We may share your personal data, for any of the purposes mentioned in section 2 above, with third parties. Such third parties include: Other corporate entities, agents, external advisors, our external service providers and contractors (such as any mail provider, commercial agent or support services), government agencies including law enforcement, regulatory and dispute resolution bodies (or any other body to whom disclosure is required by law or court/ tribunal order) and any other person or entity to whom disclosure is authorized by you.
When we disclose your personal data to a third party who is processing personal data on our behalf, we take all reasonable steps to ensure that such third parties will implement appropriate technical and organizational measures and are bound by confidentiality and legal obligations with respect to the protection of your personal data. The potential disclosure of your personal data is conducted in compliance with legal requirements. This means that such processing is guarded by data processing agreements to ensure that personal data is not processed for other purposes than those clearly stated, and to make sure that our third parties uphold adequate security measures to protect your personal data.
We will not disclose your personal data to third party organizations located outside the country in which we have received your information (as applicable) without your prior written consent, except as set out below or where disclosure is otherwise authorized or required by law or court/ tribunal order.
We may transfer your personal data within the ISS Group, and to our operations or contractors located outside the EU/EEA. However, any such transfer does not change our commitment to safeguard your personal data under this Privacy Statement.
If your personal data is transferred outside of the EU/EEA, ISS ensures an adequate level of security by transferring to countries approved by the EU Commission as having an adequate level of protection, or by entering into an appropriately drafted contract between ISS and the non-EU/EEA entity receiving the data.

We store your personal data in paper-based and/or electronic files and registers. We have put in place safeguards, as required by law, to protect the personal data we process from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. ISS has a number of technical security measures in place. These include a range of systems and communication security measures, as well as the secure storage of hard copy documents and the use of encryption. In addition, access to your personal data will be restricted to those who require access to fulfill the purposes.
We only keep your personal data for as long as it is required for the purpose for which we process the data, and in accordance with our Group standard on retention and deletion.
