5. INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS
We may transfer, disclose, store and otherwise process Personal Information we collect about you to other countries, in particular the United States where our headquarters are located and where the servers that we use are located. These countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided your Personal Information which means that these countries may not provide the same level of protection for Personal Information as the country from which it was transferred. When we transfer your Personal Information, we will protect that information adequately.
If you are located in the EEA, we comply with applicable legal requirements to provide adequate safeguards for the transfer of Personal Information to countries other than the country where you are located. In particular, we may transfer Personal Information to countries for which adequacy decisions have been issued, use contractual protections for the transfer of Personal Information, such as the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses, or rely on third parties’ certification to the EU-U.S. or Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks where applicable.
6. DATA SECURITY AND RETENTION
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the Personal Information you provide or we collect against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. We may use third party hosting and cloud services to store and process your Personal Information on our behalf. We endeavor to select and use such services with data security in mind so that your information is subject to appropriate safeguards and protection. However, no data transmission over the Internet or data security system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure (subject to requirements under applicable law to ensure or warrant information security).
We also take measures to delete your Personal Information or keep it in a form that does not permit identifying you when this information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which we process it, unless we are required or permitted by law to keep this information for a longer period. When determining the retention period, we take into account various criteria, such as the type of products and services requested by or provided to you, the nature and length of our relationship with you, the impact on the services we provide to you if we delete some information from or about you, mandatory retention periods provided by law and the statute of limitations.
