Receivers may be one of two types: (i) companies with which WLL-CMS has a contractual and/or commercial or professional relationship for the provision of legal services; and (ii) third parties other than WLL-CMS, when such transfer is made precisely for the maintenance of or compliance with the legal relationship between you and WLL-CMS, including without limitation, the transfer of data to legal, tax, financial or labor advisors, etc.

In both cases, WLL-CMS will inform the Receiver of the personal data protection measures implemented by WLL-CMS.
