WHERE WE STORE YOUR INFORMATION
Our office headquarters are based in Nottingham and our main data centre is located in the UK. However, where required to perform our contract with you or for our wider business purposes, the information that we hold about you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the UK and the EU. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the UK and EU who work for us or for one of our service providers. In particular, our email service provider, Constant Contacts, is based in the USA. Their terms and conditions confirm that Constant Contacts have put in place specific technical and organizational security measures to protect your data as required by the GDPR. Further details can be found at https://www.constantcontact.com/legal/security.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy statement.
Some countries or organisations outside of the UK and the EU which we may transfer your information to will have an “adequacy decision” in place, meaning the EU considers them to have an adequate data protection regime in place. These are set out on the European Commission website: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu/adequacy-protection-personal-data-non-eu-countries_en.
If we transfer data to countries or organisations outside of the UK and the EU which the EU does not consider to have an adequate data protection regime in place, we will ensure that appropriate safeguards (for example, model clauses approved by the EU or a data protection authority) are put in place where required. To obtain more details of these safeguards, please contact us.
