Such personal data may, subject to the purposes specified above, be disclosed to:

  • entities that need them to fulfill an order, deliver a parcel, send mail and e-mail, analyze data, process payments, or provide customer services, being our consultants;
  • processors providing or maintaining IT solutions;
  • law enforcement authorities and other public authorities if required by the applicable law or in good faith (e.g. to inform them of our compliance with the relevant legislation, to protect and defend our rights or property; or to have them act to protect service users’ personal safety in an emergency).


11. Personal data protection measures

STORM Computers implements appropriate technical and security measures for the purpose of ensuring the security and confidentiality of personal data and to prevent any unauthorized access to or unauthorized use of personal data or any technical equipment used by STORM Computers.
