We may share your personal data with our suppliers to perform services on our behalf, i.e., supply of IT-systems, analysis services or subscription services. Our suppliers process personal data on our behalf, acting as data processors. Your personal data will only be available to those who need it in order to fulfil the purpose of the processing. We do not share personal data with the auction houses we cooperate with. 

We, our suppliers, and cooperation partners, process, as the main rule, your personal data only within the EU/EEA area. In some cases, we transfer personal data to data processors who process data outside of the EU/EEA such as in the United States. If processing will take place outside the EU/EEA, there will either be an adequacy decision by the EU Commission confirming that the relevant third country ensures an adequate level of protection (United Kingdom), or appropriate safeguards have been implemented, such as standard contractual clauses, which ensure that your personal rights are protected. The standard contractual clauses provided by the EU Commission can be found on the following link
