Some of our service providers are located in the United States or other countries located outside the European Economic Area.

However, all such providers have signed the corresponding standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission by which they guarantee that appropriate and sufficient safeguards are applied in order to have the same protection standards as in the EU. Therefore, the use of these providers does not result in a lower level of protection of your personal data than the use of suppliers located in the European Union.
