Where your data is stored
It can be important to know where your data is stored. For example: there have been concerns expressed about data stored in the USA. The view being, data stored in the USA is too readily accessible to the American government. In Europe / UK, there are tighter controls on how data can be accessed by government bodies. For that reason, we store your data in the European Economic Area (“the EEA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. You are deemed to accept and agree to this by using Our Site and submitting information to Us. If We do store data outside the EEA, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the General Data Protection Regulations.
