Transfers of personal data outside the European Economic Area

Please note that this section only applies to you if EU data protection laws apply to our handling of your personal data.

The personal data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside of the EEA who work for our affiliates or for one of our third-party agents or contractors.

Where we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will ensure that it is protected in a manner that is consistent with how your personal data will be protected by us in the EEA. This can be done in a number of ways, for example:

  • The country that we send the data to might be approved by the European Commission;
  • The recipient might have signed up to a contract based on “model contractual clauses” approved by the European Commission, obliging them to protect your personal data; or
  • where the recipient is located in the US, it might be a certified member of the EU-US Privacy Shield scheme.
  • In other circumstances, the law may permit us to otherwise transfer your personal data outside the EEA. However, in all cases, we will ensure that any transfer of your personal data is compliant with data protection law.

    You can obtain more details of the protection given to your personal data when it is transferred outside the EEA by contacting us in accordance with the “Contacting us” section below.
