What information do we collect?

You can access our website pages without having to input any information about yourself. In certain cases, however, you will be able to enter your personal data, but you are not obliged to do so. All personal information you provide is voluntary. We collect personal data entered in data fields in the corresponding sections of the website. The data may include your name, address, email address and telephone number. For the avoidance of doubt, we would like to point out that we do not collect any sensitive personal data, as defined in applicable local law.

What do we do with the personal information we collect?

We collect, process and use your personal data for different purposes, which include the following examples:

  • to inform you about our services or offers (if you have requested them);
  • to address the purpose for which you have submitted your personal data to us;
  • to improve our marketing and advertising activities, as well as to improve the contents and services offered on the website;
  • to gain a better understanding of your needs and to enhance our products and services for you; and
  • to make decisions about positions if you have supplied personal data to us as part of a job application.

Whom do we share this information with?

We will not transfer, disclose, sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties other than as described in this Privacy Policy and to our AlixPartners group companies as reasonably necessary unless we have your permission or are required or permitted by law.

This process may include sending personal information to other countries, whose data protection laws may not be as extensive as those in the European Economic Area.

Otherwise we will only transmit personal data without your consent in the following cases:

  • if the transmission of your personal data is reasonably necessary in order to achieve the purposes outlined in the section titled, “What do we do with the personal information we collect?”;
  • if the transmission of your personal data to subcontractors or to our consultants is required to fulfil a contract which you entered into with us;
  • if the transmission of your personal data – in accordance with the EU Data Protection Directive – is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests and is proportionate bearing in mind your interests; or
  • if the transmission of your personal data is required or permitted by law.

In the event that we transmit personal data to third parties who provide services to us, we will use all reasonable efforts to ensure that these third parties also comply with this Privacy Policy and applicable privacy laws.

How to get copies of or amend the personal information we have collected

We maintain reasonably appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect your personal data collected through this website against unauthorized access, unauthorized use and unauthorized change, as well as against illegal destruction.
