  • your consent;
  • the necessity to perform an agreement with you (e.g. offering our services within the App); or
  • the necessity to pursue our legitimate interests or those of a third party, where these interests override your interests or your fundamental rights.

Polaroid (and third party data processors acting on our behalf) may collect, store and process your personal data:

We are committed to providing you with information on products and offers which are relevant to you. When you visit other websites you may see an advertisement for Polaroid because you visited the Website.

We will not disclose, sell, trade, or rent your personal data to any third party, save for any disclosures of your personal data detailed in this Privacy Policy.

In the event that a third party acquires all or part of our business and/or assets, we may disclose your personal data to that third party in connection with the acquisition. Furthermore, we reserve the right to disclose your personal data to third parties as part of any business or asset sale carried out because Polaroid has gone into insolvency or any similar situation, but only where lawful and compliant with the applicable data protection legislation, as amended from time to time.

5.2. Comply with applicable law

We may disclose your personal data where necessary to comply with applicable law or an order of a governmental or law enforcement body.

We may transfer personal data that we collect from you to third party processors located in countries that are outside of the European Economic Area and to other Polaroid group companies in connection with the above purposes.

In such situations we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place that offer an adequate level of protection of your rights and freedoms as a data subject in accordance with the GDPR. We do this, for example, by concluding standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data, or by transferring your personal data only to third parties that are considered to guarantee an adequate level of protection by the European Commission.
