Scope

Under most privacy laws, a controller is the entity that determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

UK DPA

Operating globally, we may transfer personal data from the United Kingdom to the United States and other countries, including personal data we receive from individuals residing in the UK or those who are protected under the UK Data Protection Act 2018 and visit our website and/or who may use our services or otherwise interact with us. When we engage such transfers of personal data, we rely on the following transfer mechanisms:

  • Adequacy decision for the transfer of personal data to the European Economic Area countries, the EFTA states, and any country covered by a European Commission’s adequacy decision as of 31 December 2020.

  • In the absence of any adequacy decision and standard data protection clauses, we implement appropriate safeguards depending on the circumstances that ensure the protection of rights and freedoms of individuals with respect to their personal data.

We also conduct transfer risk assessments in order to determine the level of protection offered to data subjects protected under the UK Data Protection Act 2018 by the recipient entity and continually monitor the circumstances surrounding such transfers to ensure that these maintain, in practice, a level of protection that is essentially equivalent to the one guaranteed by the UK Data Protection Act 2018.

In such instances, appropriate technical and organizational measures will be implemented to protect your personal data and your rights and freedoms,
