Information we collect may be transferred to, stored, and processed in any country or territory where one or more of our affiliated group companies or third-party service providers are located or maintain facilities. Some of these third parties will use cloud-based storage solutions.

We will take all steps that are reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy and applicable data protection laws, including, where relevant, entering standard contractual clauses (or equivalent measures) with the party receiving the personal information.

We will ensure that it is disposed in a secure manner when it’s no longer needed.
