Countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not always offer the same levels of protection to your personal data so European law has prohibited transfers of personal data outside of the EEA unless the transfer meets certain criteria.

We will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
