The Personal Information that Mirantis collects and processes may be shared with third party recipients in certain situations, which include sharing with:
The affiliated companies of Mirantis which are involved by Mirantis in certain joint activities;
third parties providing services to Mirantis, such as cloud-based services, providers of telecommunication services or to our financial, legal or other advisors;
third parties that might have legitimate interest in knowing your Personal Information in case of merger, acquisition, reorganizations, sale of part of our business or other corporate change of Mirantis;

8. Security and Retention of the Personal Information
We use industry-standard methods of securing electronic databases of personal information. Except as provided elsewhere in this Privacy Notice, we limit access to personal information in electronic databases to those persons in our organization who have a business need for such access. However, you should know that no website operator, including Mirantis, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information.
Your privacy is very important to us. However, due to factors beyond our control, we cannot fully ensure that your Personal Information will not be disclosed to third parties other than those mentioned above. For example, we may be legally required to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
We retain the Personal Information of individuals for a commercially reasonable time. The length of storage depends on the period required by the applicable laws (if any) and on the purpose for which the data was collected. For example, if you create an account at Mirantis website, we will process your Personal Information until you request deletion of the account or until the account is otherwise deactivated. For more details about retention period in specific case when your Personal Information is processed, please contact us on one of the designated contacts in section 11.
