Third parties requiring information for legal reasons
We may share your personal information with others if the law requires us to, or if we think it is necessary to comply with the law. We may also share your personal information if we need to do so to protect or defend our legal rights, or those of others.

8. What is our legal basis for using your personal information?
If you are obtaining our products or services from within the European Economic Area ("EEA"), then we are required to ensure that we only process your personal information where we have a legal basis to do so. When we process your personal information we will only do so where at least one of the following applies:
- we need to use your personal information to perform our responsibilities under our contract with you;
- if it is in our legitimate interests to use your personal information. For example, it is in our legitimate interests to use your personal information to improve our Website, to tell you about changes to this Policy, to tell you about new services or products we are offering, and for business reasons (for example to develop our business or if we are thinking of selling our business); or
- sometimes we may ask for your consent to use certain types of personal information (e.g. by asking you to tick an online box). In these circumstances, your consent will be our legal basis for processing your personal information. If you have provided consent, you may withdraw it at any time. You may do this by "opting out" where we give you the opportunity to do so, or by contacting via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
9. How long do we keep your personal information?
If you have registered a query or request for quote with us (your 'request'), we will normally only keep your personal information for as long as we are considering and dealing with you in relation to your request. When your request has been actioned and closed, we will normally delete your personal information. Sometimes, however, we may keep your personal information after your request has been closed. For example:
- we may retain personal information about how you have used our Website for as long as we think it may be useful to us in order to improve the Website and develop our business. This may include for example, information about how you have used our Website;
- we may also retain your personal information so that we can send you information about products, services and publications we think you may be interested in. You can "unsubscribe" to receiving such messages or tell us you are no longer interested;
- we may retain your personal information in order to protect our legal rights, or those of third party, or to comply with the law; or
- if you purchase products or services from us, we may retain your personal information for as long as we need to in order to provide you with after sales customers service, or for as long as we need to for compliance purposes in order to comply with our record keeping requirements.
10. We may transfer your personal information outside the EEA
We may transfer personal information that we collect from you to third party data processors or other members of the Rotork Group located in countries that are outside of the EEA in connection with the above purposes.
If we transfer your personal information outside the EEA we will only do so where one of the following applies:
- there is an adequacy decision by the European Commission which means that the recipient country is deemed to provide adequate protection for such personal data;
- where the transfer of personal information is to a member of the Rotork Group, and we have in place binding corporate rules with such member which safeguard the personal information;
- where we have in place standard model contractual clauses with the recipient which have been approved by the European Commission. These model contractual clauses include certain safeguards to protect the personal information;
- in the case of transfers of personal information to the US, if the recipient has signed up to the US Privacy Shield Framework; or
- if such transfer is needed to enable us to perform our contractual obligations to you relating to products or services we have agreed to provide to you. We will only do this where such transfers are occasional and necessary.
We take data privacy seriously and we only use your personal information where we have a lawful basis for doing so, and only to the extent that we need to use it. Whilst we take appropriate technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal information, no transmission over the internet can ever be guaranteed secure. You should always think carefully before providing or sharing information which you wish to keep private or confidential.
12. What choices and rights do you have regarding the use of your personal information?
You may "opt out" of receiving marketing or promotional messages from us by following the instructions in those messages. You may also opt out of such marketing by getting in touch by emailing us on email@example.com. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your account or our on-going business relations.
