Georg Jensen A/S and Georg Jensen Inc. have established a joint controllership regarding this specific setup with the purpose of giving you the best customer experience in relation to relevant marketing information.

We may also forward your personal data to third parties in order for us to meet our obligations to you and/or to delivery your orders, such as when using external couriers.
Your personal data may also be shared with sub-contractors who deliver services to us. In these instances, data processing will be subject to agreements that ensure that the recipient of your personal data (a) has put into place sufficient technical and organisational precautions to protect your personal data from unauthorised or illegal access, loss, damage, theft, use or publication, (b) has limited access to your personal data from the employees who need them to provide the desired service, (c) only processes personal data in accordance with these membership terms and conditions, and (d) does not use your personal data for any other purpose than that associated with providing a service or with our written instructions.
To the extent your personal data is shared with companies, including group companies, in countries outside the EU/EEA which may not ensure an adequate level of data protection as countries within the EU/EEA, the transfer will be based on the EU Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses in order to ensure an adequate level of data protection with respect to such transfers.
