We will only pass on your information to third parties in the following situations:

  • if this was clearly stated at the time of collection or registration and, where required, if you have given permission for this;

  • If we sell the business of some of the MastiMela.net to another organisation or merge with other businesses. In this case, the buyer will only be able to use your information as set out in this Privacy Policy;
  • If we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary for legal proceedings. We may also disclose information when we believe in good faith that applicable law or regulation requires it or to protect the safety or security of users of our Sites; and
  • If we use third party processors to administer and process your personal information for the purposes notified in the Privacy Policy, e.g. for hosting activities related to the use of our Sites or services. We may also share details with third parties (such as auditors or legal advisors) to obtain advice. Any such processing will be governed by an agreement in the form required by law, preserving any statutory data protection rights.
