Keeping personal information secure
We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way.

Transfers of personal information
We may transfer the personal information we collect to, and store such information in, other countries which may have different data protection laws than the country in which the information was provided. If we do so, we will always take measures to comply with legal requirements under applicable data protection laws and to protect that information.
Many of our data processors operate “cloud-based systems”, which means the information is held in information data centres in different locations. Most of them reserve the right to hold copies of your personal information outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
In each case we and our processors employ mechanisms to help safeguard your privacy rights, as required under applicable data protection laws, such as:
- Certain processors only transfer your personal information to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal information by the relevant regulator.
- Providers storing information in the US, may be self-certified to the EU-US Privacy Shield (such as NationBuilder) which requires them to provide similar protection to personal information shared between the Europe and the US.
