4. Transfers of personal data outside the European Economic Area

The personal data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by individuals operating outside of the EEA who work for our affiliates or for one of our suppliers.

Where we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will ensure that it is protected in a manner that is consistent with how your personal data will be protected by us in the EEA. This can be done in a number of ways, for instance:

  • the country that we send the data to might be approved by the European Commission as offering a sufficient level of protection;
  • the country that we send the information to may subscribe to an “international framework” intended to enable secure data sharing
  • the recipient might have signed up to a contract based on “model contractual clauses” approved by the European Commission, obliging them to protect your personal data; or
  • where the recipient is located in the US, it might be a certified member of the EU-US Privacy Shield scheme.

In other circumstances the law may permit us to otherwise transfer your personal data outside the EEA. In all cases, however, we will ensure that any transfer of your personal data is compliant with data protection law.

You can obtain more details about the protection given to your personal data when it is transferred outside the EEA (including a copy of the standard data protection clauses which we have entered into with recipients of your personal data) by contacting us in accordance with the “Contacting us” section below.

5. Retention of personal data

How long we hold your personal data for will vary. The retention period will be determined by the following criteria:

  • the purpose for which we are using your personal data – we will need to keep the data for as long as is necessary for that purpose;
  • legal obligations – laws or regulation may set a minimum period for which we have to keep your personal data; and
  • resolve disputes, protect our assets, and enforce our agreements.
