10. Transferring your personal data out of the UK and EEA
To deliver services to you, it may be in some circumstances that it is sometimes necessary for Us to share your personal data outside the UK/EEA, e.g.:
with your and Our service providers, such as SharpSpring, located outside the UK/EEA;
if you are based outside the UK/EEA;
Under data protection law, We can only transfer your personal data to a country or international organisation outside the UK/EEA where:
the UK government or, where the EU GDPR applies, the European Commission has decided the particular country or international organisation ensures an adequate level of protection of personal data (known as an ‘adequacy decision’);
there are appropriate safeguards in place, together with enforceable rights and effective legal remedies for data subjects; or
a specific exception applies under data protection law;
These are explained below.
11. Adequacy decision
We may transfer your personal data to certain countries, on the basis of an adequacy decision. These include:
all European Union countries, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway (collectively known as the ‘EEA’);
Andorra, Argentina, Canada, Faroe Islands, Guernsey, Israel, Isle of Man, Japan, Jersey, New Zealand, Switzerland and Uruguay.
The list of countries that benefit from adequacy decisions will change from time to time. We will always seek to rely on an adequacy decision, where one exists.
Other countries international organisation We are likely to transfer personal data to do not have the benefit of an adequacy decision. This does not necessarily mean they provide poor protection for personal data, but We must look at alternative grounds for transferring the personal data, such as ensuring appropriate safeguards are in place or relying on an exception, as explained below.
12. Transfers with appropriate safeguards
Where there is no adequacy decision, We may transfer your personal data to another country or international organisation if We are satisfied the transfer complies with data protection law, appropriate safeguards are in place, and enforceable rights and effective legal remedies are available for data subjects.
The safeguards will usually include using legally-approved standard data protection contract clauses.
To obtain a copy of the standard data protection contract clauses and further information about relevant safeguards, please contact us (see ‘How to contact us’ below).
13. Transfers under an exception
In the absence of an adequacy decision or appropriate safeguards, We may transfer personal data to a third country or international organisation where an exception applies under relevant data protection law, e.g:
you have explicitly consented to the proposed transfer after having been informed of the possible risks;
the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between Us or to take pre-contract measures at your request;
the transfer is necessary for a contract in your interests, between Us and another person; or
the transfer is necessary to establish, exercise or defend legal claims
We may also transfer information for the purpose of Our compelling legitimate interests, so long as those interests are not overridden by your interests, rights and freedoms. Specific conditions apply to such transfers and We will provide relevant information if and when We seek to transfer your personal data on this ground.
