The collection of the data concerning a Data Subject is a requirement: failing this, it becomes impossible to enter into a commercial agreement, to duly fulfil the relevant pre-contractual or contractual obligations or, in case of existing agreements, to fulfil the obligations and commitments arising from such agreements.

The data shall be processed by the Company, and by its entrusted personnel by the Company, generally by the Purchasing department and by the Administration & Finance department, as well as by other staff employees who could have the need to process them, by means of electronic or manual systems and according to the principles of fairness, integrity and transparency that are required by applicable laws on data protection as well as by preserving the privacy of the concerned persons through the implementation of technical and organizational measures ensuring an adequate safety level (including, without limitation, by preventing access by unauthorized persons -unless such access is required by the applicable laws- or by ensuring restoration of access to data after material or technical accidents).


4. Storage of data

The data shall be stored in compliance with the applicable regulations on protection of personal data for the time that is necessary to comply with the above-mentioned purposes. In particular, personal data will be stored by Company for the whole duration of the contractual relationship and also after its termination, in compliance with applicable laws (including, without limitation, the obligation to keep the invoices and other company documents for at least 5 years after the year in which the transaction took place).

5. Disclosure, dissemination and transfer of data

Without prejudice to the duty of disclosure in order to fulfil any legal or contractual obligations, the data may be disclosed to tax or legal consultants, to Company’s collaborators, to the banks, to public entities as well as to those persons that are authorized by the laws to receive such data, if required,  to Danish or foreign judicial or other public authorities for the fulfilment of legal obligations, or for the performance of the obligations arising from an agreement, including for the purposes of defence before the Courts. Such entities act as independent data controllers.

Contact details may also be disclosed occasionally and for single reasons, to other customers and/or suppliers of the Company, including –without limitation - if it becomes necessary to collaborate with any of such persons for the performance of the contractual obligation.

The data may be disclosed to other companies belonging to the Group, including subsidiaries and affiliates, with registered office inside and outside the European Union (the updated list is available on Brembo’s website: if necessary for internal administration purposes and the coordination of the group, or if such companies need to cooperate for the performance of the contract. In this case, with reference to transfer the data to countries located outside the European Union, the Company undertakes to ensure a level of protection and preservation, also by means of entering into specific contracts, adequate to the applicable laws, including the entering into standard contractual clauses (a copy of the undertaken commitments with the Group companies is available on request to the contacts mentioned below). Personal data shall not be disseminated.
