9.5  We use the services of Facebook Ireland Limited (Facebook) to carry out certain

marketing activities on the Facebook Platform. Specifically, from time to time we use Facebook’s Audience Insights to help us to create targeted audiences for our advertising campaigns on Facebook. This involves sharing some of our customer personal data with Facebook to allow it to create for us information on the types of audiences (i.e. potential customers) on Facebook platform that would be best suited to see our adverts. In this respect Facebook acts as our joint processor.

For such processing of your personal data we and Facebook also act as a ‘Joint Controller’ this means that both Facebook and us can determine the reasons for processing of your personal data. Facebook has its own privacy policy on how Facebook processes personal data, including the

legal basis which Facebook relies on and the ways to exercise Data Subject rights against Facebook. To review Facebook’s privacy policy, you can visit: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy. You can also obtain full contact details of Facebook or its representative and the details of its Data Protection Officer from this policy.

In order to ensure the rights of data subjects (i.e. you) we have entered into a Controller Addendum with Facebook that sets outs each parties’ respective responsibilities in terms of this processing and our responsibility to inform you of the details in this section 9.5.

Any data subject requests with regard to the Personal Data stored by Facebook Ireland after the Joint Processing described in paragraph one of this section 9.5, is the responsibility of Facebook.

10.2  In the event that any of your data is to be transferred in such a manner, you will be contacted in advance and informed of the changes.
