It may sometimes be necessary for us to transfer your personal data to countries outside of UK. In those cases we will comply with applicable UK laws designed to ensure the privacy of your personal data. We may transfer your personal information outside UK and the European Economic Area (EEA).
Under data protection law, we can only transfer your personal data to a country or international organisation outside the UK where:

Where we transfer your personal data outside the UK we do so no the basis of an adequacy regulation or (where this is not available) legally approved standard data protection clauses. In the event that we cannot or choose not to continue to rely on either of those mechanisms at any time we will not transfer your personal data outside the UK unless we can do so on the basis of an alternative mechanism or exception provided by the UK data protection law and reflected in an update to this policy.
