6.2.      Please note that Our Customers are separate data controllers in regard to their processing of Your personal data through Our Solutions and otherwise. Our Solutions are intended for use by organisations and We have no direct relationship with data subjects who utilise the services or products provided by our Customers (“End Users”), regardless of whether such services or products are facilitated through the use of Our Solutions. If you are an End User, We strongly encourage You to read the privacy policies and any terms and conditions of the Customers who process Your personal data and to contact them directly should you have any requests or inquiries about their processing. We expressly disclaim any responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these entities.

9.5.      Where personal data may be subject to transfer to another organisation in contemplation of a merger, financing, reorganisation or dissolution transaction of all or part of Us, We will do this only if the involved parties have entered into an agreement under which the collection, use and disclosure of the personal data is restricted to those purposes that relate to the transaction, including a determination of whether or not to proceed with the transaction, and is to be used by the involved parties to carry out and complete the transaction. If another company acquires Us or Our business or assets, that company will possess the personal data collected by Us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding Your personal data as described in this Policy.
