· by transferring your personal information to a country that has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection by the European Commission;
· by using specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give your personal information the same protection it has within the EEA; and
· where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US as if it never left Europe.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our third-party data storage providers.
