We may also share information with our group companies, some of which are located outside the EEA.

We will only transfer data outside the EEA where it is compliant with data protection legislation and the means of transfer provides adequate safeguards in relation to your data, for example by way of data transfer agreement, incorporating the current standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission, or by signing up to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, in the event that the organisation in receipt of the Data is based in the United States of America.

Appropriate safeguards and procedures have been put in place with the third parties we may share your data with to ensure that your data receives an adequate level of protection. This means that your data is treated by those third parties in a way that is consistent with the Data Protection Laws.
