International processing of personal information?
We may need to transfer your personal data outside the UK to service providers and subcontractors in countries where data protection laws may not provide the same level of protection as those in the European Economic Area, such as the USA. These data transfers are covered by an adequacy decision of the European Commission (Article 45 GDPR). Where this is not the case e.g., when it comes to transfers to the USA, the data transfers are especially based on standard data protection clauses/standard contractual clauses in line with the templates adopted by the European Commission (Article 46 Para. 2.lit. c, Para. 5 S. 2 GDPR) or by an exemption according to Article 49 GDPR.
The same applies to external service providers who work on behalf of us (for example IT service providers or data centres) or third parties, insofar as they come into contact with your personal data and are based in third countries.
Otherwise, we do not transfer your personal data to countries outside the EU or the EEA or to international organisations.
