Third party links
Our website or platforms may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you.

Countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not always offer the same levels of protection to your personal data, so European law has prohibited transfers of personal data outside of the EEA unless the transfer meets certain criteria. In the instance of third-party providers based outside the EEA, processing of your personal data may involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Our use of internet-based applications may result in your personal data being transferred outside the EEA in ways that are compliant with GDPR requirements.
