Transferring personal data outside the EEA:
We take all steps possible to ensure that your personal data remains within the European Economic Area (“EEA”). However, in some cases we need to share data with other wecript news group companies or third parties that are in countries outside the EEA and Swiss-US, as described earlier. These countries may not have similar data protection laws and so they may not protect the use of your personal information to the same extent. In these cases we put in place appropriate safeguards to make sure your personal data remains adequately protected. Specifically, we make use of one of the following: Standard contractual clauses: We use standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to organizations outside the EEA and Swiss-US. These contractual commitments have been adopted by the European Commission and ensure adequate protection for personal data transferred to countries outside the EEA and Swiss-US by binding recipients of personal data to certain data protection standards including obliging them to apply appropriate technical and security measures. We use standard contractual clauses when we transfer data to other wecript news Group companies and for transfers to recipients that are neither Privacy Shield certified nor located in a country covered by an adequacy decision.
Where the European Commission has determined that a country outside the EU offers an adequate level of data protection, personal data may be sent to that third country without implementing any other safeguards mentioned above. Wecript Browser may rely on adequacy decisions when transferring data to companies based in countries where such assurances have been given.
