SHARING YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH OTHERS
We may share your personal data with service providers, business partners and other third parties, in accordance with applicable law.
For example, Gibson Innovations may sell you a product or offer you a service in a joint marketing effort with another company (business partner).

Also, Gibson Innovations may transfer your personal data to our third party service providers so that we may be able to provide the required products and services experiences to you.
If we are required by law to obtain your consent, or otherwise believe that your consent is appropriate in the circumstances, we will obtain your consent before we share your personal data.
The agreements with these business partners and third party service providers will limit the purposes for which your personal data can be used and disclosed, and will require your personal data to be adequately safeguarded. Gibson Innovations will disclose personal data only in conformance with this Privacy Notice and/or when required by law.
From time to time, Gibson Innovations may sell a business or a part of a business to another company. Such a transfer of ownership could include the transfer of your personal data directly related to that business to the purchasing company.
Once you have provided us with your personal data, you have reasonable access to that information so that you can update, modify or, if legally possible, delete it by contacting Gibson Innovations at <email@example.com>. For certain Gibson Innovations Pages, e.g. www.loudjam.com, you may do this by logging into the "personal settings" of your account, where you can also change your preferences relating to how Gibson Innovations communicates with you.
You will also be provided with an opt-out opportunity when necessary and we will comply with any local legislation.
We encourage you to keep your personal settings and personal data complete and current.
We want to know you better so we can serve you better while at the same time respecting your choices about how we use your personal data.
Your personal data may be transferred from your home country to other Gibson Innovations companies, in different locations around the world, which may communicate with you about Gibson Innovations products, services or special offers that you may be interested in.

Similarly, where local law so requires, we will ask you to "opt-in" before using sophisticated profiling techniques.
Because Gibson Innovations sells thousands of products in hundreds of countries, you may have previously provided us with your personal data via our call centres or in some other manner.
