Do we share your personal data outside the EU/EEA?
Helping You Grow International Business AB generally handles your personal information within the EU/EEA, but in some cases, we may use non-EU/EEA suppliers. When we transfer personal data outside the EU/EEA, this will only be done if we have a legal basis for the transfer in accordance with applicable laws and regulations for data protection. This means that we can transfer personal data to Privacy Shield-certified data processors in the United States. According to a decision of the European Commission, personal data may be transferred to recipients in the United States, provided that the recipient is Privacy Shield-certified. Privacy Shield is an EU-US agreement aimed at protecting Europeans’ fundamental rights and ensuring legal certainty for companies that transfer personal data to the United States. US companies wishing to become Privacy Shield-certified may apply to the US Trade Department to ensure that the company’s privacy policy complies with the high security standards required by Privacy Shield. For non-Privacy Shield-certified recipients, we may transfer your personal data outside the EU/EEA using standard data protection measures adopted by the EU Commission. We may also transfer your personal data to a country that the EU Commission has assessed as having an adequate level of protection for the processing of personal data.

If you require more detailed information about the transfer of data outside the EU/EEA, please contact us using the contact details listed above. By contacting us, you can also get a copy of the appropriate safeguards.
