If we send your personal data to a company which is in a jurisdiction not subject to an adequacy decision, we will rely on UK standard contractual clauses, which require that company to protect your personal data. To the extent required or permitted by data protection law, we may alternatively rely on an appropriate Data Protection Framework certification, a vendor’s processor binding corporate rules and/or other data transfer mechanisms available under UK data protection law.
