COMPLAINTS. Should you wish to report a complaint or if you feel that our Company has not addressed your concern in a satisfactory manner, you may contact the Information Commissioner’s office (if an individual located in the United Kingdom) or the European Data Protection Board.
INDIVIDUALS LOCATED WITHIN THE UNITED KINGDOM.
Restricted Transfers: Our Company may make a restricted transfer if the receiver is located in a third country or territory or is an international organization, covered by UK “adequacy regulations.” If there are no adequacy regulations about the country, territory or sector for the restricted transfer, our Company should then find out whether you can make the transfer subject to ‘appropriate safeguards’ as listed in the UK GDPR. Before we rely on an appropriate safeguard to make a restricted transfer, we must be satisfied that the data subjects of the transferred data continue to have a level of protection essentially equivalent to that under the UK data protection regime. We do this by undertaking a risk assessment, which takes into account the protections contained in that appropriate safeguard and the legal framework of the destination country (including laws governing public authority access to the data). If our assessment is that the appropriate safeguard does not provide the required level of protection, we will include additional measures. Appropriate safeguards may be: (1) A legally binding and enforceable instrument between public authorities or bodies; (2) binding corporate rules as defined in Article 47 of the UK GDPR; (3) a contract incorporating standard data protection clauses recognized or issued in accordance with the UK data protection regime; (4) a code of conduct approved by the ICO; (4) Certification under an approved certification scheme; (5) a bespoke contract governing a specific restricted transfer which has been individually authorized by the ICO; or (6) Administrative arrangements between public authorities or bodies. If none of the criteria above apply for the transfer, we may still make the transfer if the transfer is covered by an ‘exception’ set out in Article 49 of the UK GDPR.
