Certain countries outside the EEA and UK have been approved by the European Commission and UK government as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA and UK data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export personal data to these jurisdictions (Adequacy Decisions). In countries which have not had these approvals, we will transfer your personal data where we have in place specific contacts approved by the European Commission and the UK Government (Standard Contractual Clauses).

4.2     Please contact us through the  “GDPR Contacting Us”form below if you would like to see a copy of the specific safeguards applied to the export of your personal data.
