6. How do we disclose and transfer your personal data?

We may disclose your personal data only to the parties indicated below and for the following reasons:

The Hermès group companies are located worldwide. As a result, personal data may be transferred outside the country where you are located. This includes transfers to countries outside the European Union (“EU”) and to countries that do not have laws that provide adequate protection for personal data according to the European Commission

To ensure lawful transfers of data, transfers are done based on relevant and approved contractual clauses by data protection authorities.

To obtain a copy of the relevant adequate safeguards, you can send us your request using the details in Section “How to contact us?” below.

NWe may also disclose personal data to third-party providers acting on behalf of Hermès and approved by Hermès. (For example, a recruitment agency entrusted with an exclusivity of the search on behalf of Hermès). All such processing is based on our prior instructions set out in a binding contract that is compliant with the requirements of applicable law. Such disclosures are made for different purposes including application analysis, IT development and support. These providers are committed to confidentiality and are not permitted to use your personal data for any other purposes. We also require them to use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data.

Part of those service providers are located outside of your country, notably outside the EU. We have taken steps to ensure all personal data is provided with adequate protection and that all transfers of personal data, including outside the EU are done lawfully. Where we transfer personal data outside of the EU to a country not determined by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, the transfers will be under an agreement which covers the EU requirements for the transfer of personal data outside the EU, such as the European Commission approved standard contractual clauses, or under other appropriate safeguards, as the EU/US Privacy Shield for transfers to the United States of America. To obtain a copy of the relevant adequate safeguards, you can send us your request (see below “How to contact us?”).

7. How do we protect your personal data?

All your personal data is strictly confidential and will only be accessible, on a need-to-know basis, to duly authorized personnel of Hermès and other entities of the Hermès Group and third providers acting on our behalf with appropriate technical and organizational security safeguards.

The Hermès group has implemented security measures to protect your personal data against unauthorized access and use. We follow appropriate security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal data so as to prevent unauthorized access by third parties and to prevent your data being accidentally lost. We limit those who access your personal data to those who have a genuine business need to access it. Those who do access your data will be subject to a duty of confidentiality towards Hermès.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

We also require those parties to whom we transfer your personal data to comply with the same. However, unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. So, we cannot ensure the security of your personal data transmitted by you to us via the internet. Any such transmission is at your own risk and you acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible for any unauthorized use, distribution, damage or destruction of Your Information, except to the extent we are required to accept such responsibility under the law. Once we have received your personal data, we will use the security measures abovementioned.
