Your Data will be processed by FRED, its subsidiaries, branches and/or affiliates, and their business partners.
Within the framework of the provision of its services, FRED may transmit or grant access to your Data for technical, logistical or commercial reasons to the following categories of recipients:

-the business partners to whom the FRED private sales organization is entrusted: the private sales organization may also be entrusted to partners. In order to ensure the management of our invitations to these partner events, we may use the services offered by them to manage the sending of our invitations to the sales they organize and to reconcile our customer database with theirs in order to determine the most appropriate channel to inform you of the sale and avoid in particular the multiplication of invitations for the same sale or to select the guests to FRED events according to the nature of the relationships you have with FRED (customer, LVMH group employee, guest of honour,...), relationship history (for example, participation in other sales or events, purchasing history,...). These partners are bound by strict confidentiality obligations when processing your Data on behalf of FRED as a data processor and may not use your Data for purposes unrelated to the services we entrust to them. However, if you use their services directly, for example by registering on a private sales platform, your Data will be collected and used by the partner under the conditions provided for in their privacy policy, to which you should refer.
-the service provider managers in charge of the development and maintenance of the FRED customer relations management platform;
