Is your Personal Data transferred internationally?

We are headquartered in the United States. Personal Data may be accessed by us or transferred to us in the United States or to our affiliates elsewhere in the world. By providing us with your Personal Data or otherwise engaging with us through our Websites or Software, please be aware that your Personal Data may be transferred to, stored, and processed by us in the United States, by our affiliates elsewhere in the world, and by those third parties with whom we may share your Personal Data as described above.

We take all necessary measures designed to protect the privacy and security of Personal Data according to this Privacy Policy and applicable data protection law, regardless of where it is processed or stored. However, by providing us with your Personal Data or otherwise engaging with use through our Websites or Software, you acknowledge that Personal Data stored or processed in the United States will be subject to the laws of the United States, including the ability of governments, courts, law enforcement and regulatory agencies of the United States to obtain access to your Personal Data in some circumstances

Where required by laws, we have taken the necessary steps to implement the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of Personal Data between our group companies, between us and applicable third-party vendors, consultants and service providers, and between us and applicable customers. The European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses require recipients of Personal Data transferred from the European Economic Area to protect such Personal Data in accordance with European data protection laws.

What happens when I go to another site?

Our Websites provide links to other third-party websites. These links are provided to you for convenience purposes only, and you access them at your own risk. We cannot guarantee the safety and privacy of Personal Data you provide to any third parties.

How long do we keep your Personal Data?

We only keep your Personal Data for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements). When we no longer have a legitimate business need to process your Personal Data, or the ground on which we were relying to process your Personal Data no longer applies, we will either delete or anonymize your Personal Data. If this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Data is stored in back-up archives), we will securely store your Personal Data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
