According to the applicable legal terms, MFM will be able to transmit or communicate the “User Data” to other entities in case that such transmission or communication is necessary for the contract processing or for pre-contractual diligences, requested by the Client, as well as if it is necessary for a compliance with a legal obligation to which MFM is subject.

According to the legal terms, communication to the Client is not required in the following cases:

  •  If MFM has taken subsequent measures which ensure that the significant risk to the rights and freedoms of the Client is no longer likely to materialize.
