9.4          Some of the third party data processors used by Us and listed in clause 6.4 may store or process some or all of your personal data in countries that are not part of the EEA.  These are known as “third countries” and may not have data protection laws that are as strong as those in the UK and/or the EEA. To safeguard your personal data, the third party data processors use specific contracts that are approved by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data to third countries.  These contracts ensure the same levels of personal data protection that would apply under the GDPR.  More information is available at

9.5          In certain circumstances, We may be legally required to share certain data held by Us, which may include your personal data, for example, where We are involved in legal proceedings, where We are complying with legal requirements, a court order, or a governmental authority.
