You may withdraw your consent to direct marketing at any time, at no cost and without having to provide a reason. All our emails contain an unsubscribe link at the bottom, specifically for this purpose.

Article 3 - How we share your data with third parties

We do not disclose your Personal Data to third parties except with your prior consent.

If we ever cease to operate, or we transfer our business to someone else, because we go bankrupt or sell our business, for example, this may mean that your Personal Data will be transferred to third parties who will take over all or part of our business. Mauquoy will always inform you in advance to the extent that this is possible in such an event, but please understand that this may not be technically or commercially feasible in all circumstances.

In rare cases, we may be required to disclose Personal Data pursuant to a court order or to comply with other mandatory laws or regulations. We will try to inform you of this in advance, to the best of our ability, unless we are unable to do so for legal reasons.
