Please note that privacy laws in countries outside of the EEA may not be the same as, and in some cases may be less protective than, privacy laws in your country. We transfer data relying on the following adequate mechanism under European Union privacy laws.



When we transfer personal data to servers controlled by a third-party data hosting company either within the EEA or operating outside of the EEA, we conduct security checks on these companies to ensure adequate safeguards are in place to protect the transfer of personal data. We take steps reasonably necessary to ensure that personal data is transferred securely. Unfortunately, the transfer of data via the internet, server, database, network or email is never fully secure or error-free.
