4. Who Kellogg discloses your personal data to and why
Kellogg will never share your personal data with any Third-Party (i.e., a party other than an entity within the Kellogg Group) business organisation that intends to use it for their own purposes, other than as required by law. Kellogg, as part of a worldwide group, may transfer or disclose your personal data to another data controller in the Kellogg Group to be used for similar purposes, at its discretion, and you hereby consent to such transfer or disclosure. If your personal data is transferred or disclosed to another data controller within the Kellogg Group, that other data controller shall have the same rights and obligations with regard to your personal data as Kellogg.
With your consent, Kellogg may share your personal data with Third-Parties (i.e. parties other than entities within the Kellogg Group) such as those who assist us in providing the products and services and who perform technical operations, but only in the strictly limited circumstances set out below:
• Our “Third-Party Data Processors” (service providers such as our fulfilment and activation partners, and digital agencies, hosting providers, data storage providers and other technical partners) who help us administer this website, or process the data submitted to it, may have access to your data. Some of these business partners may be located outside the country where you accessed this website.

5. Your rights
You have the right to ask Kellogg to provide you with all the information it stores on you. If you wish to access your personal data you can click on “My Account” where you will have the opportunity to update your personal data or preferences. You have the right to ask Kellogg to rectify, block, complete and delete your personal data, to restrict its use, and to port your data to another organization. You have the right to request additional information about the handling of your personal data. You also have the right to object to the processing of your data by Kellogg in some circumstances and, where we have asked for consent to process your data, to withdraw this consent. Additionally, you may contact our Data Protection Officer at DataPrivacyOfficer@kellogg.com if you would like assistance with any of the aforementioned rights.
There are exceptions to these rights, however. For example, access to personal data may be denied in some circumstances if making the information available would reveal personal information about another person or if Kellogg is legally prevented from disclosing such information. In addition, Kellogg may be able to retain data even if you withdraw your consent, where Kellogg can demonstrate that it has a legal requirement to process your data.

6. Countries your personal data will be sent to and why
Kellogg is a global company and your personal data may be transferred across international borders. It may be transferred to countries that have different levels of data protection laws to the country from where you submitted your personal data. Kellogg (as Data Controller and Data Exporter) has, where local data protection regulations so require, put in place security measures for the export of personal data from its jurisdiction. Where local data protection regulations so require, Kellogg has made arrangements with entities receiving your personal data such as Kellogg Group or Third-Party Data Processors, that they shall ensure that security measures are in place, and that your personal data is processed only in accordance with EU Data Protection laws.
If data is transferred from within the EEA to a jurisdiction outside the EEA, it is done so under a Data Transfer Agreement, which contain standard data protection contract clauses. The European Commission has adopted standard data protection contract clauses (known as the Model Clauses) which provide safeguards for personal information that is transferred outside of Europe. We use Model Clauses when transferring personal data outside of Europe. If you wish to know more about international transfers of your personal data, you may contact our Data Protection Officer at DataPrivacyOfficer@kellogg.com.
The server that makes this website available may be located outside the country from which you have accessed this website. The provider of this website is bound by a contract that ensures your data is managed in accordance with EU Data Protection laws and that it acts only on Kellogg instructions and implements all technical measures necessary on an ongoing basis to keep your personal data secure.
