the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that
protect your personal data if you are an EU data subject. For data
subjects outside of the United States (US), where we transfer your data
to third parties who are also outside of the EU, we will ensure that
certain safeguards are in place to ensure a similar degree of security
for your personal data. As such:
We may transfer your personal data to countries that the European
Commission have approved as providing an adequate level of protection
for personal data by; or
If we use US-based providers that are part of EU-US Privacy Shield, we
may transfer data to them, as they have equivalent safeguards in place;
Where we use certain service providers who are established outside of
the EEA, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or
certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give
personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
If none of the above safeguards is available, we will request your
explicit consent to the specific transfer when you submit the data.
If you are a data subject outside of the US and you provide us with
personal data through forms, comments, reviews, contact boxes, or other
manual methods of contacting us through our website (including
follow-up emails subsequent to these submissions), your data may be
accessed by third party data processors such as virtual assistants,
contractors, technical support, and blog contributors who are located
outside of the EU and who process data for us. Since none of the
safeguards listed above apply to some of our data processors in those
capacities, we request your explicit consent to allow these third party
data processors to process the data that you submit to us through
forms, comments, reviews, contact boxes, or other manual methods of
contacting us through our websites.
We have agreements with these processors that include safeguards for
your data, but as noted above, these processors are located in the US
or other countries with adequacy decisions or safeguards deemed
appropriate under GDPR. You must evaluate whether any possible risk of
exposure of the personal data that you submit which is not for
publication (typically your name and email address) is worth submitting
the information. If you do not consent to these risks, do not submit
information to us.

its amount, nature and sensitivity, potential risk of harm from
unauthorized use or disclosure, the processing purposes, if these can
be achieved by other means and legal requirements.

or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information
indefinitely without further notice to you.

refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
