International transfer (outside EEA) of your personal data
We may store or transfer some or all of your personal data in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area (the "EEA" consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein). These are known as "third countries" and may have less stringent data protection laws than those in the EEA.

We will only transfer your personal data to countries that, in the opinion of the European Commission, provide an adequate level of personal data protection. More information is available from the European Commission.
If the third country does not provide an adequate level of personal data protection, we will use specific contracts with external third parties approved by the European Commission (also known as Standard Contractual Clauses: SCC) for the transfer of personal data to third countries. The SCCs guarantee the same level of protection of personal data as would apply under the GDPR. In addition, additional measures are taken to protect your data from unauthorized access. More information is available from the European Commission.

You will be kept fully informed of progress.

In addition, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you object, we will stop processing your personal data for this purpose.
