They also undertake to ensure the rights of those concerned are suitably protected, as stipulated in the existing data protection regulations;

  • when a User authorises a third party's website to access his/her Data;

  • when the Website hires outside providers to provide User support, advertising or payment services. These service providers are given limited access to the User's Data in order to perform their services, and have a contractual obligation to use such data in compliance with applicable personal data protection regulations;

  • if required by law, Next Station may pass on Data in response to a claim made against the website and to comply with administrative or judicial proceedings;

  • if Next Station takes part in a merger, acquisition, asset sale or receivership, it may have to transfer or share all or part of its assets, including personal data. In this case, Users will be informed before such data is transferred to any third parties.
