Our data processors are usually based in European Economic Area (EEA) and US. When choosing our service providers in US, we try to make sure that they are members of EU – US Privacy Shield Framework and are publicly committed to complying with mandatory EU privacy standards. In other cases where necessary, we make sure that our US-based data processors would comply with EU privacy standards by entering into agreements with standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission.
