Provision to Third Parties
The Greater Good may use the services of third parties to process your data in accordance with this Privacy Statement. These third parties act as a processor for The Greater Good and we ensure that these parties provide sufficient guarantees regarding the security measures and careful and lawful processing of personal data.

When you make a donation, the payment details will be processed by the payment service provider Mollie.

Otherwise, The Greater Good only provides data to third parties with your prior consent or if we are obliged to do so under laws and regulations, if we are compelled to do so as a result of a lawsuit and/or if we deem it necessary to protect our own interests or the interests of third parties.

Transfer Outside Europe
