We make every effort to guarantee that the information you provide will not be misused. Please read the following statement to learn about our information gathering and dissemination practices.
This policy governs any kind of processing (including collection, use, transfer, storage and deletion) of personally identifiable information (any information that may be used to identify a physical person, and any other information associated therewith) about natural persons, which are either consumers of Curiocity products or services, or representatives of our cooperation partners (“personal data”), by all business units and entities within the Curiocity Group. This policy applies to our processing of personal data collected through any means, actively as well as passively, online as well as offline, from persons located anywhere in the world. Any question regarding our processing of personal data may be directed to: Contact Us
Generally, Curiocity will be guided by the following principles when processing personal data:
1. We will only collect personal data for specific and specified purposes;
2. We will not collect personal data beyond what is necessary to accomplish those purposes;
3. We will not use personal data for purposes other than that for which the data was collected, except as stated herein, or with prior consent;
4. We will not transfer personal data to third parties or across borders, except as stated herein, or with prior consent;

Transfer of personal data to third parties and/or other countries
As a general principle, we process personal data in order to facilitate or improve the Curiocity’s offerings and services to you. We do purchase supplementary data from public sources to complement our data bases.
We do not process personal data on behalf of third parties, nor do we sell personal data to, or share personal data with, third parties for their own, independent use, except if you allow us to do so.
We do share personal data with third party vendors when it is necessary to provide services that we don’t perform ourselves, e.g. shipping of Curiocity products, mailing of Curiocity Newsletters, etc.
We also use third party data hosting companies to store personal data collected by us in their servers, and to do data validation checks for us.
All data transfers to third party vendors or partners, including those listed as examples above will be subject to a written contract between us and the third party vendor or partner in question, and the vendor or partner will not have any authority to use such personal data for any purpose other than as instructed by us.
When relevant, personal information may be shared among the business units and entities inside the Curiocity Group. We will disclose personal data when legally obligated to do so under subpoena or court order, or for law enforcement purposes.
