We also share data with our other trusted third party service providers, who act as our processors:

If Intergiro engages in a merger, acquisition, reorganisation or sale of some or all of Intergiro’s assets or shares, financing, initial public offering or similar transactions or proceedings, or steps in contemplation of such activities (such as due diligence), Intergiro may share personal data with third parties, subject to standard confidentiality arrangements.
