    6. Legal basis for processing your Personal Data


    We will only process your Personal Data where we have a legal basis to do so. The legal basis will depend on the purposes for which we have collected and use your Personal Data. In almost every case the legal basis will be one of the following: 


    • Consent: For example, where you have provided your consent to receive certain marketing from us. You can withdraw your consent at any time, including by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any marketing email we send you.
    • Our legitimate business interests: Where it is necessary for us to understand our customers, promote our services and operate effectively provided in each case that this is done in a legitimate way which does not unduly affect your privacy and other rights. For example, we will rely on this legal basis when we conduct certain market analysis to understand our customers in sufficient detail so we can create new services and improve the profile of our brand.
    • Performance of a contract with you (or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract with you): For example, where you have purchased a product from us and we need to use your contact details and payment information in order to process your order and send the product to you.
    • Compliance with law: Where we are subject to a legal obligation and need to use your Personal Data in order to comply with that obligation.


    7. How do we disclose your Personal Data


    We make certain Personal Data available to strategic partners that work with us to provide our products and services or help us market to customers. Personal Data will only be shared by us with these companies in order to provide or improve our products, services, and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their own marketing purposes without your prior express consent.


    We may disclose your Personal Data to other third parties in the following cases:


    • for the purposes of research, evaluation, and analysis;
    • if you choose to use the product or services provided a third party. For example, if you choose to participate in the hearing test within the Nothing X app, we make certain Personal Data available to our third-party partner Mimi Hearing Technologies GmbH to provide you with personalized sound function.
    • in the event that we sell any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your Personal Data to the prospective buyer of such business or assets;
    • if we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case Personal Data held by us about our customers and visitors to our websites will be one of the transferred assets;
    • if we are under a duty to disclose or share your Personal Data in order to comply with any legal or regulatory obligation or request; or
    • to protect the rights, property or safety of us or our users, or others, and in order to enforce or apply our terms and conditions (this includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction).


    8. How do we protect your Personal Data


    We use appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your Personal Data that we collect and process.

    9. Data storage and transfer


    Cross-border transfer


    The Personal Data that we collect may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the EEA or the UK, including countries, which have less strict, or no data protection laws, when compared to those in the EEA or the UK. Whenever we transfer your information in this way, we will take steps which are reasonably necessary to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place to protect your Personal Data and to make sure it is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In these cases, we rely on approved data transfer mechanisms (such as standard contractual clauses) to ensure your information is subject to adequate safeguards in the recipient country. If you are located in the UK or the EEA, you may contact us for a copy of the safeguards which we have put in place to protect your Personal Data and privacy rights in these circumstances.


    Retention period


    We will store your Personal Data to the extent as necessary for the proper business needs of our company (e.g., for the purposes of providing service to you and complying with the requirements of laws, tax and finance), except as provided otherwise by applicable laws or regulations. When there is no such need to use your Personal Data or the retention period expires according to applicable laws or regulations, we will delete or anonymize your Personal Data.

These include: the right to object to the processing of your information for certain purposes, the right to access your Personal Data, the right to correct your Personal Data, the right to delete your Personal Data, the right to file a complaint, the right to withdraw your consent, right related to automated decision making and the ability to erase, restrict or receive a machine-readable copy of your Personal Data.
