By providing JobFinder Spain with your personal data, you consent to JobFinder Spain disclosing your data to its new, or potential, business partners or owners if one of these situations arises.

Unless required or permitted to do so by law, JobFinder Spain will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of your personal data without your consent.
