9. International data transfers.

The Website is a global business. We may transfer personal data to countries other than the one in which you live. This country may not have the same data protection law as the country in which you initially provided the data. We deploy safeguards if we transfer Personal Data originating from the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) to other countries not deemed adequate under applicable data protection law.

We process data outside of the EU and EEA.

In particular, to offer the services at the Website, we may need to transfer your personal data to the United States, Ukraine. The United States and Ukraine are not considered to provide an adequate level of protection under EU data protection law. It means that these countries do not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the data.

In all cases, we use European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses as a legal mechanism for data transfers from the EU. Learn more about the Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the EU Commission. These clauses are contractual commitments between companies transferring personal data, binding them to protect the privacy and security of the data. The Website accordingly adopted Standard Contractual Clauses so that the data flows necessary to provide, maintain, and develop the Website take place legally.

We recommend that you consult the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit by clicking on the "privacy" link typically located at the bottom of the webpage you are visiting.

11. How we protect your personal data?
