Your personal information may be transferred to or accessed from other countries and processed for us in those countries on the basis that anyone we pass it to will provide a level of protection equivalent to the Data Protection Laws.
The European Commission determines geographic territories which it considers to provide adequate and appropriate safeguards to Data Processing activity.
Where data is transferred to and processed outside of the EEA, then the data must have appropriate safeguards provided by the controller or processor. Such safeguards may include standard data protection clauses issued by the European Commission.
The majority of personal information collected and managed by Alliance Trust Savings (ATS) is stored and processed in the UK and EEA. However, some information may be processed by us or the third parties we work with outside of the EEA.
