To provide our services, we may need to transfer your personal information to locations outside the jurisdiction in which you provide it or where you are viewing this website for the purposes set out in this privacy policy.  This may entail a transfer of your information from a location outside the European Economic Area (the “EEA”) to a location within the EEA, within locations within the EEA, from a location within the EEA to a location outside the EEA, or within locations outside the EEA.  The level of information protection in countries outside the EEA may be less than that offered within the EEA.  Where this is the case, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and that the means of transfer provide adequate safeguards.
