Your data may be transferred to countries which do not have the same level of data protection laws as those in the EU. If we transfer personal data to processors or other controllers who are not located in the EU or otherwise not approved as safe countries by the EU, such transfer is safeguarded by entry into the EU’s standard contractual clauses for transfer of personal data to third countries. In addition, we will instruct our processors that are located outside of EU/EEA to guarantee the same high level of security, privacy and data protection that it would receive in the EU.
