We only let that happen if we are satisfied with their levels of security. Keep in mind that when you give us personal information it could be being transferred, stored or processed in a location outside the EEA. Regardless of where we store your information, all third parties holding our/your data are checked that they are GDPR compliant and have your best interests in mind as regards securing your data.
