Although your personal data will be held in Finnish data centres it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information outside of the European Economic Area (or the EEA), so that we can deliver products and provide services to you or to transfer your personal information to our group companies, suppliers or service providers based outside of the EEA for the purposes described in this policy.

If this happens, your personal information will continue to be subject to one or more appropriate safeguards set out in the law. We will ensure that the transfer will be compliant with data protection law and all personal information will be secure. Our standard practice is to use ‘standard data protection clauses’ for such transfers or ensuring that our suppliers sign up to an independent privacy scheme (like the US 'Privacy Shield' scheme). These methods have been approved by regulators to ensure adequate safeguards are in place.
