B. How We Share Your Information with Third Parties.

Except as set forth in this Privacy Notice or when specifically agreed to by you, we will NOT disclose personal information we gather from you to third parties unless AFM (UK) is required to share this information to complete your request or for legitimate legal purposes. AFM (UK) shares personal information in the following circumstances:

Organisations outside the EU. We sometimes share data of our Ministerial staff with the headquarter church in Portland, Oregon USA. For inclusion in the database of the organisation’s Ministerial staff members.

Response to Subpoenas, Court Orders, Government Requests or to Protect Rights and to Comply with Our Policies. To the extent permitted by law, we will disclose your information to government authorities or third parties if: (a) required to do so by law or regulation, or in response to a subpoena or court order or any other enforceable governmental request or order; (b) we believe in our sole discretion that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property or other rights of us or other users, third parties or the public at large; or (c) we believe that you have abused the Sites by using them to attack other systems or to gain unauthorized access to any other system, to engage in spamming or otherwise to violate applicable laws. You should be aware that, following disclosure to any third party, your information may be accessible by others to the extent permitted or required by applicable law.

C. Information for Individuals Located in the European Union.

Legal Basis for The Processing of Personal Information from EEA Residents

If you reside within the European Economic Area (EEA), our processing of your personal information will be legitimized as follows:

(i) Whenever we require your consent for the processing of your personal information such processing will be justified pursuant to Article 6(1) lit. (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”). This article in the GDPR describes when processing can be done lawfully.

(ii) If the processing of your personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and AFM(UK) or for taking any pre-contractual steps upon your request, such processing will be based on GDPR Article 6(1) lit. (b).”). If this data is not processed, AFM (UK) will not be able to execute the contract with you.

(iii) Where the processing is necessary for us to comply with a legal obligation, we will process your information on basis of GDPR Article 6(1) lit. (c), for example complying in the fields of employment law.

(iv) And where the processing is necessary for the purposes of AFM (UK)’s legitimate interests, such processing will be made in accordance with GDPR Article 6(1) lit. (f), for example to detect fraud.

4. Transferring Personal Data from the EU to the US:

AFM (UK) has its headquarters in the United States. ONLY some Ministerial staff data are shared with our headquarter church in USA. No personal data that we collect from you will be processed in the United States. The United States has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR). A finding of “adequacy” in short means that the European Commission has decided that this country outside the EEA ensures an adequate level of data protection. AFM (UK) relies on derogations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR as the United States has no “adequacy” decision and no other safeguards under the GDPR are in place (for example binding corporate rules on the transfer outside the EEA). In particular, AFM (UK) collects and transfers to the U.S. personal data only of Ministerial staff: with their explicit consent; to perform a duty with them; in a manner that does not outweigh their rights and freedoms. If this data is not processed and transferred, AFM (UK) will not be able to execute the duty with you or you will not have access to any or all of the benefits and features associated with your transaction. AFM (UK) endeavours to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with AFM (UK) and the practices described in this Privacy Notice. AFM (UK) also minimizes the risk to your rights and freedoms by not collecting or storing sensitive information about you. If you wish to confirm that AFM (UK) is processing your personal data, or to have access to the personal data AFM(UK) may have about you, please contact us at .
