4. In what situations is your personal data disclosed to other parties?
We do not disclose or transfer your data to third parties, except for processors and approved third parties. We do not sell, lease or rent your data. Your data are adequately protected if transferred internationally.
We disclose your personal data to the parties indicated below and for the following reasons:

We may disclose your personal data to Fiskars group companies and authorized third party vendors which process the data for us. Such disclosures may include payment services providers, companies that facilitate your orders, delivery companies, customer service teams, and companies that analyze and manage consumer data for us, conduct credit checks, market research and marketing campaigns. These authorized third parties may use your data to perform contracted services on our behalf and to employ reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect your data.
- International transfers
Our services may be provided using resources and servers located in various countries, partly outside of the EU/EEA. Therefore, your personal data may be transferred across international borders outside the country in which you use our services. If personal data is transferred outside the EU/EEA, we will ensure that transfer is based on at least one of the transfer principles and bases provided for in Chapter V, General Data Protection Regulation.
- Requests based on legislation and protection of our interests
We may be required by the binding requirements of applicable law, or for the purposes of responding to legal proceedings or other lawful requests, to disclose your personal data to authorities or third parties.

data – You have a right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data, at

7. How do we protect your personal data?
We have implemented a variety of appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized access, and other unlawful or unauthorized forms of processing. The safeguards include, for example, firewall protection of our systems and storing physical documents in locked and fireproof premises. Further, the databases and their backup copies can be accessed only by certain pre-designated persons; all persons processing personal data will need to have an individual accreditation; only specifically authorized personnel of ours or authorized third parties are entitled to access our premises or process data; and anyone who is granted access to your personal data is required to keep such data confidential. Different levels of access have been created based on the type of data a person needs to access or process according to his/her job description. However, no security measures are 100% effective, and if you are concerned about the security of your information, you do not have to submit your information to us.
8. What are your rights and options and how can you use them?

A. Notice for California Residents
Fiskars, and each of its separately branded businesses, provides the information contained in this Section 10 to California Consumers to supplement the above notice of Fiskars’ privacy practices, which applies to you to the extent relevant to your use of our services.

Sales of Personal Information

Online identifiers associated with a device use to interact with our digital properties or advertisements (such as device ID, cookies, beacons, pixel tags, mobile ad identifiers, or similar technologies)
Internet and other electronic network activity information associated with a device used to interact with digital properties or advertisements

California residents may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.
All verifiable consumer requests must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
Please note that upon exercising any of the rights listed above, you may be requested to provide additional information for identification purposes. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal Information relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. Such additional information shall not be used for any other purpose and will be removed after successful identification.
If you have an account with us, we may deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Fiskars will not discriminate against you because you exercise your rights. For example, Fiskars will not deny you goods or services or charge you a different price or rate for goods or services if you make a request relating to your personal information.
Fiskars offers several loyalty programs within the United States, including the Royal Copenhagen Collector’s Club, Waterford.com Program, and Wedgwood.com Program. Each is a voluntary loyalty program that offers you certain benefits if you join. In order to join, you need to register by providing us some personal information. In California, we are required to inform you that our loyalty program offers financial incentives that may result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Through these offerings, consumers provide us with some personal information (e.g., names, emails, phone numbers) when they opt-in to our programs. There is no obligation to opt-in and consumers may opt-out at any time. The details of the loyalty program are contained in the program offering. We offer these programs, among other things, to enhance our relationship with you so you can enjoy more of our products/services at a lower price and obtain other warranty benefits. We invest heavily in our marketing and brands, in part, so we can provide programs to our customers. Consumer data is valuable to our business only when it is combined with a sufficient number of other consumer data and after it is enhanced by our efforts herein described. The value to our business of any individual consumer’s personal information is dependent on a number of factors, including, for example, whether and to what extent you take advantage of any offerings, whether and to what extent you opt out of any offerings, and whether we are able to enhance the data through our efforts herein described. Our ability to create any value from the programs is heavily based on our ability to leverage said intellectual properties. We do not calculate the value of consumer data in our accounting statements.
