Transferring your information outside the European Economic Area (EEA)
I do not transfer the information you give me to countries outside the EEA, except where the international transfer is necessary in connection with the services, I am providing to you.
If I transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way, and the country in question has not been deemed by the EU Commission to have adequate data protection laws, I will provide appropriate safeguards and I will be responsible for ensuring your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this notice.
If you are outside the EEA, your information may be transferred outside the EEA in order to provide you with my services. By submitting your personal information to me in this way you agree to the transfer and processing of your information outside the EEA.
