Some of your data will also be processed in countries outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) which may have a lower level of data protection than within Europe. In such cases, we will ensure an adequate level of data protection for your data by means of contractual agreements based on the EU standard contracts (copy available on request) or, in the case of recipients domiciled in the USA, by means of the EU/USA Privacy Shield Certification, or we will ask you for your express consent to transfer the data.
