Given the global nature of our business and the centralization of certain business activities, personal information may be stored and processed internally at different group levels (e.g., global, regional, and local) for lawful purposes where Company or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers operate facilities. We recognize that the EU/EEA countries have an omnibus data protection regime that generally restricts the transfer of personal information about individuals in the EU to the United States and certain other countries, unless there is “adequate protection” for such information when it is received. This is set out in Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to processing of personal data and the free movement of that data (“GDPR”). To address GDPR and equal restrictions in other countries or regions, we apply a consistent set of rules to all transfers of personal information amongst Company entities regardless of their location whether within or outside of the EU/EEA countries. To provide adequate protection for transfers of personal information, Company along with its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers enter into the Standard Contractual Clauses for the Transfer of Personal Data to Third Countries (“Model Contract”) pursuant to European Commission Decision 2004/915/EC of 27 December 2004.
