When PepsiCo transfers personal information outside of your country of residence, whether within the PepsiCo group of companies or to a third party, PepsiCo only transfers such personal information:
to a country considered to have adequate or exceeding data protections laws; or

If none of these criteria are satisfied, PepsiCo may still transfer personal information outside of your country of residence with your consent, or without it if the transfer is legally necessary.

Where PepsiCo reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), PepsiCo may use your personal information to inform law enforcement agencies about your behavior.
The above without limiting PepsiCo´s faculty of removing the offensive or inappropriate content posted by you or by your profile, as well as blocking you or removing you from the Website, Tournament or any other PepsiCo activity.
