Processing your information outside the EEA
Some of third parties we share your data with may reside outside the European Economic Area (which currently comprises the Member states of the European Union plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein). If we do this, your information will be treated to the same standards adopted in Ireland and include the following data protection transfer mechanisms:
- Model Clauses (also known as Standard Contractual Clauses) are standard clauses in our contracts with our service providers to ensure that any personal data leaving the EEA will be transferred in compliance with EU data-protection law. Copies of our current Model Clauses are available on request.
- Transfers to countries outside the EEA which have an adequate level of protection as approved by the European Commission (such as the United Kingdom).
- Transfers permitted in specific situations where a derogation applies as set out in Article 49 of the GDPR. For example, where it is necessary to transfer information to a non-EEA country to perform our contract with you.
