5. HOW AND WHERE WE STORE OR TRANSFER PERSONAL DATA
We may store or transfer some or all of your personal data in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area (the “EEA” consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). These are known as “third countries” and may not have data protection laws that are as strong as those in the EEA. This means that we will take additional steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the EEA and under the GDPR as follows.
We share your data within the group of companies that we work with. Where this involves the transfer of personal data outside the EEA, we ensure that personal data is protected by requiring all companies within the group to follow the same rules with respect to personal data usage. These are known as “binding corporate rules”. More information on binding corporate rules is available from the European Commission.

You may access certain areas of our Site without providing any personal data at all. However, to use all features and functions available on our Site you may be required to submit or allow for the collection of certain data.
10. ACCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details and/or a copy of that personal data (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email address shown in Part 20. To make this as easy as possible for you, a Subject Access Request Form is available for you to use. You do not have to use this form, but it is the easiest way to tell us everything we need to know to respond to your request as quickly as possible.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding. We will respond to your subject access request within less than one month and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
11. DATA RETENTION + DESTRUCTION
We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary to fulfill its collection purpose or to satisfy a legal or accounting purpose. In some cases, your data may be anonymized for research purposes and used indefinitely. If your data no longer meets any of the above criteria, all personal data will be deleted or otherwise disposed of in a safe and secure manner.
