Users Outside of the United States

Our computer systems and third party hosting provider systems are currently based in the United States so your personal data will be processed by us in the United States where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union. In particular, you are advised that the United States of America uses a sectoral model of privacy protection that relies on a mix of legislation, governmental regulation, and self-regulation. Article 26 of the European Union’s Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC, 1995 O.J. (L 281) 31) allows for transfer of personal data from the European Union to a third country if the individual has unambiguously given his or her consent to the transfer of personal information, regardless of the third country’s level of protection. By using the Site you consent and agree to this Privacy Policy and to the processing of that information in the United States of America as described in this Privacy Policy.
