Transfer to third parties
We do not share personal data with unaffiliated third parties except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs.

When we share data with others, we may, whenever required, put contractual arrangements in place to protect the data and to comply with our data protection, confidentiality and security standards.
Like other professional service providers, we use third parties located in other countries to help us run our business.

We have taken steps to ensure that all personal data is provided with adequate protection and that all transfers of personal data outside the EU are done lawfully. If we transfer personal data outside the EU, to a country not determined by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of personal data protection, the transfers will be under an agreement covering the EU requirements for the transfer of personal data outside the EU, such as the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission.
