Should "Recipes From India" sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. If the company or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets;
Where there is a legal obligation to do so, to any relevant credit reference agencies, public authorities or law enforcement agencies, including for example where we suspect you have committed a criminal offence, or we suspect fraud where required by law, regulation or legal proceedings;

To permit selected third parties to use your data, to provide you with information about goods and services which may be of interest to you and they may contact you about these by email or telephone. This may also include social media platforms (including Facebook) where we provide limited information about our users (e.g. their email addresses) to the social media platform so they can provide to us an anonymous demographic profile of our users with profiles on that platform to inform our targeted marketing activities on that platform If you do not want us to use your data in this way, or to pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, please tick the relevant box situated on the form or webpage on which we collect your data.

This can only be accessed by limited personnel of "Recipes From India" to supply you with the above Service.
It may also be made accessible to staff and subcontractors outside our offices who work with us to assist in providing the Service to you. In each case, we will ensure that these third- parties are only provided with access of your personal information, where it is in our legitimate interests to do so, since we may not have the capabilities to provide these services ourselves;
