  19. Transfers outside the EEA
  20. Information may be transferred to and processed in countries other than your country of residence. For example, if you are a resident of a European Economic Area (EEA) country, your personal information may be transferred to the United States for processing. These countries may have different data protection laws than your country. Specifically, our servers are located in the United States and group companies and third-party service providers operate around the world. This means that when we collect information we may process it in one of these countries. However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to ensure that your information remains protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable legal requirements. If information is transferred to and processed in countries for which the EU Commission has pronounced an adequacy assessment (such as for the U.S.), the substantial equivalence of regulatory systems and the Commission’s judgment provide a solid basis for assurance that Holders supplement with instructions and specific technical and organizational measures on a case-by-case basis. If the information is transferred and processed outside the European Union in countries that have not received an adequacy assessment from the EU Commission, the processing will be regulated by the Controller in accordance with the provisions of Chapter V of the GDPR Regulation. Therefore, all necessary precautions will be taken in order to ensure adequate protection of personal data as possible by basing such transfer: a) on adequate guarantees expressed by the third-party recipient in accordance with Article 46 of the Regulation; b) on the adoption of standard contractual clauses or ad hoc contractual clauses, c) on the adoption of binding corporate rules, so called “Corporate binding rules“.

  21. Data Protection Rights
  22. The GDPR allows you to exercise a number of rights, here are in brief what they are and what they are for:

    • Right of access-allows people to request information about what personal data is being processed by the data controller and to obtain access to it;
    • Right of rectification – allows you to request correction and updating of inaccurate data and to be notified of rectification;
