The legal basis for the processing of your personal data within this framework is Art. 13 (1) PIPL. By actively sending us your personal data, you understand and agree that your personal data will be processed for the purpose for which the personal data is sent.

For the categories of the data processed for each purpose please refer to the General Privacy Notice.

Sensitive personal data is data that once leaked or illegally used will easily lead to infringement of personal dignity or endanger personal or property security, such as biometrical data, religion, special identity, medical and health data, financial account data, location tracking data and personal data related to children under 14 years old.

SupplyOn does not usually process sensitive personal data. However, if we process your sensitive personal data on an exceptional basis, we will only do this if it is strictly necessary for a pre-defined purpose. If sensitive personal data is processed based on consent, we will ask for you consent separately. For children under 14 years old, we will obtain consent from the legal guardian of the children.

SupplyOn engages service providers to process personal data on our behalf. These service providers are contractually obligated to only process personal data in accordance with the instructions of SupplyOn. Obligations of the services providers, as well as the scope, purpose and type of the commissioned data processing will be laid down in a data processing agreement.

Beyond the aforementioned scope, SupplyOn will only disclose your personal data to a third party, if such data disclosure is necessary to fulfil our contractual obligation towards you or if you have directed us to do so. Your personal data will only be disclosed within the contractually agreed scope. We will not publicly disclose your personal data.

4. Cross-border data processing

Due to business operation purposes, your personal data might be processed outside of China. In so far as the cross-border data transfer rules laid down in the applicable Chinese data protection regulations apply, we will make sure that the data is transferred in accordance with such applicable rules.
