How MotionPoint Discloses or Shares Personal Information
There are some circumstances in which MotionPoint discloses or shares Data Subjects’ Personal Information with third parties.
- Disclosure in the Normal Scope of Business: The following describes some of the ways that Personal Information is disclosed in the normal scope of business:
- MotionPoint aggregates Personal Information and discloses it in a non-personal manner to third party advertisers and related marketing vendors for their marketing and promotional purposes.
- MotionPoint uses third parties to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of its business, product and service operations (e.g. marketing vendors, data center providers, etc.) which may mean they have access to Personal Information to provide the services to MotionPoint. These are referred to as internal service providers.

- Disclosure in Extenuating Circumstances:
MotionPoint uses third-party service providers, contractors, and other businesses to assist it in providing its solutions and services. In some cases, Personal Information will be transferred to third parties located in regions where data protection laws are less stringent than the EU or Switzerland. However, MotionPoint will take steps to ensure Data Subjects’ Personal Information is protected in accordance with this Statement.
In the event that Personal Information is disclosed to a third party acting as an Agent to perform task(s) on behalf of and under MotionPoint’s instructions, MotionPoint will transfer the Personal Information only if MotionPoint first ascertains that the Agent subscribes to the Principles or another adequacy finding or enters into a written agreement with the third party requiring the Agent to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the relevant Principles; and the conditions of the transfer do not contradict the Principles.
If a third party to which MotionPoint has disclosed Personal Information covered by this Statement is processing such Personal Information in a way that is inconsistent with this Statement and/or the Principles, MotionPoint will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop such processing. MotionPoint will remain liable under the Principles for any processing carried out by the third party which violates the Principles, unless MotionPoint proves it is not responsible for the event which gives rise to the violation.
