If you provide us with any personal data relating to a third party (e.g. information of your employees and/or end users), by submitting such information to us, you represent and warrant to us that you have notified such third party of the terms of this Statement, and that such third party has consented to you disclosing his/her personal data to us for the collection, use and disclosure of their personal data by us as described in this Statement.

In such cases, we may share with them the relevant account information, contact information, order information and transaction information to fulfil the transaction, after-sales service or service delivery. For example, if you purchase third parties’ Services via KooGallery, we need to share your personal data with them to fulfil the transaction.

If you connect your account with a solution provider’s account, we need to share the necessary information with them in order to facilitate the service. Third-party Service providers’ names will be publicized on the product or service details page and third-party Service providers may have their own separate privacy policies and are not subject to the Statement.

2) Service providers and professional advisors. We may share your personal data with third party companies and individuals that provide services on our behalf or help us operate the Website and the Services (such as supply, payment, marketing, data analytics and compliance assessment). We share such data only for purposes consistent with this Statement or under your authorization. For example, we may need to share your order information with logistic service providers in order to arrange delivery, and we may need to share your payment information with payment service providers (e.g. Worldpay, learn more about Worldpay Privacy Policy) in order to confirm and proceed with your payment instructions. We may share your personal data with professional advisors, such as lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers, where necessary in the course of the professional services that they render to us.

When we share your personal data with third parties, their responsibilities and obligations will be governed by contracts and we will require them to take appropriate measures to ensure the security of the personal data shared and/or processed.


5. How Huawei Cloud Protects Your Personal Data

We take the security of your personal data seriously. We take appropriate physical, organizational, and technical measures to protect your personal data. For example, we use encryption to ensure data confidentiality; we use trusted protection mechanisms to prevent malicious data attacks; we deploy access control mechanisms to ensure that only authorized personnel can access your personal data; and we raise awareness among employees about the importance of protecting personal data through security and privacy protection training sessions. While we take the utmost care to protect your personal data, please note that no security measures are completely infallible. You can find more details on our security measures at Huawei Cloud Security. To this end, Huawei Cloud takes the following measures:

a) Sets up a privacy protection organization to identify and manage personal data protection risks.

b) Adopts strict data security and personal data protection policies, in accordance with the risk of the categories of data processed. Develops security breach response and data breach process to reduce privacy and security risks brought by personal data breaches and guide relevant departments to handle personal data in compliance with laws and regulations.

c) Holds security and privacy protection training courses, tests, and publicity activities to raise employees' personal data protection awareness.

d) Takes reasonable and feasible measures to ensure that the personal data collected is minimal and relevant to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.

e) Takes a range of measures such as an entrance and exit control, entrance guard systems and CCTV system to ensure the physical security of the data centers to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to data processing systems with which personal data are processed or used.

f) Deploys access control mechanisms and implements hierarchical permission management on them based on service requirements and personnel levels to ensure that only authorized personnel can access personal data.

g) Clearly defines and assigns cyber security roles and responsibilities, and implements separation of duties (SOD) based on a risk assessment to reduce risks to prevent data processing systems from being used by unauthorized persons.

h) Encryption and pseudonymisation of personal data, as appropriate, using recommended industry standard protocols to prevent data breach and unauthorized access,

i) Degausses the discarded storage media before returning to the warehouse to ensure that software-based overwriting shall be performed on media prior to their disposal. In cases where this is not possible (CD’s, DVD’s, etc.) physical destruction shall be performed.

j) Implements appropriate O&M security management and technical measures, including identity authentication and access control, change and event management, vulnerability management, configuration management, event logging, and continuously monitors cyber security events and threats, detects exceptions in a timely manner, and proactively takes measures to deal with them to ensure that personal data cannot be read, copied, altered or removed by unauthorized persons.

k) Implements protection mechanisms such as DDoS protection to protect networks from attacks, develops vulnerability management policies, evaluation standards, and management processes to manage security vulnerabilities throughout the lifecycle. In addition, regularly runs vulnerability scanning programs to detect potential security vulnerabilities and promptly take countermeasures.

l) Strictly selects business partners and service providers and incorporates personal data protection requirements into commercial contracts, audits, and appraisal activities.

If you find that your account ID is being used by others without your permission, please promptly notify us. You have the right to request us to suspend any unauthorized use of your Account.

In summary, Huawei Cloud is committed to protecting your personal data. Nevertheless, no security measure is perfect and no product, service, website, data transfer, computing system, or network connection is absolutely secure.

To cope with possible risks, such as personal data breach, damage, and loss, Huawei Cloud has developed several mechanisms and control measures, clear rating standards of security incidents and vulnerabilities, and corresponding processing procedures. Huawei Cloud has established a dedicated emergency response team to implement security planning, loss reduction, analysis, locating, and remediation, and to perform tracking operations with related departments based on security incident response regulations and requirements.
