Amer Sports group companies and authorized third parties. We may share your personal data within Amer Sports group companies and their subsidiaries and affiliates, including but not limited to the sales entities of Amer Sports, or authorized third parties who process personal data on behalf of Amer Sports for the purposes described in this Policy, such as e.g., marketing, technical and logistics service providers. Such parties are not permitted to use your personal data for other purposes, and we require them to act consistently with this Policy and to use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data.

International transfers. Our products and services may be provided using resources and servers located in various countries around the world.

In such cases we take steps to ensure that there is a legal basis for such a transfer and that adequate protection for your personal data is provided as required by applicable law, for example, by using standard agreements approved by relevant authorities (where necessary) and by requiring the use of other appropriate technical and organizational information security measures.
Mandatory disclosures. We may be obligated by mandatory law to disclose your personal data to certain authorities or other third parties, for example, to law enforcement agencies in the countries where we or third parties acting on our behalf operate.

Mergers and Acquisitions. If we decide to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganise our businesses in certain countries, this may involve us disclosing personal data to prospective or actual purchasers and their advisers, or receiving personal data from sellers and their advisers.
Amer Sports does not seek to collect any information from or engage in any transactions with persons under the age of 13.

We reserve the right to block the service from any person who is under 13 years of age.

Please remember that it is your responsibility to provide us with correct details as well as to update the personal data you have provided us with in case of any changes.
Amer Sports takes reasonable technical and organizational information security measures to prevent and minimize such risks associated with providing personal data.
Such measures include, where appropriate, the use of firewalls, secure server facilities, encryption, implementing proper access rights management systems and processes, careful selection of processors and other technically and commercially reasonable measures to provide appropriate protection for your personal data against unauthorized use or disclosure. Where appropriate, we may also take back-up copies and use other such means to prevent accidential damage or destruction to your personal data. If a particular part of a Amer Sports website supports on-line transactions, we will use an industry standard security measure, such as the one available through “Secure Sockets Layer” (“SSL”), to protect the confidentiality and security of online transactions.
