International Transfer of Your Information

Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or service providers, and by using our services or by providing consent to us (where required by law), your information may be transferred to countries outside of your country of residence, including to the United States, which may provide for different data protection rules than in your country. Nonetheless, appropriate contractual and other measures are in place to protect personal information when it is transferred to our affiliates or third parties in other countries.

Some countries outside your country of residence are recognised as providing an adequate level of data protection. The full list of these countries is available here for the UK or here for the European Economic Area (EEA). For transfers to countries not deemed adequate, we have ensured that adequate measures are in place, including by ensuring that the recipient is bound by Standard Contractual Clauses, to protect your Personal Information. You may obtain a copy of these measures by contacting our data protection officer in accordance with the “Contacts” section above.

How Long Do We Store Your Information?

We will retain your personal information for as long as needed or permitted considering the purpose(s) for which it was obtained. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include: (i) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide our services to you; (ii) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; and (iii) whether retention is advisable considering our legal position (such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations).

How Do We Protect Your Information?

We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical, and administrative measures designed to protect personal information under our control. However, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us in accordance with the “Contacts” section above.
