8.2 Your personal information (e.g., name, email address, IP address, browsing information) may be transferred to the US by the following companies: Google (analytics / advertising), PayPal / Stripe (payment) and the social media companies listed in our cookies policy. Transfer is generally on the basis of contracts with special standard contractual clauses designed to provide adequate safeguards for your personal information. Some of these companies were certified under the “Privacy Shield” framework which is no longer applicable due to a court decision; we understand that the authorities are working on a replacement and we aim to update our policy to reflect this in due course.

9. What rights do you have?

9.1 If the legal requirements are met: To ask us for access to your personal information, to rectify it if there are mistakes, to delete or restrict its use in certain circumstances or to “data portability” or to withdraw any consent you’ve given (e.g. marketing).

9.3 If you have a complaint about how we are dealing with your personal information, please contact us via the email address above.
