4. Transfer Your Information Out Of European Economic Area
We may transfer your Personal Information to areas outside of the EEA. Such countries do not have the same data protections as the EEA and the UK. The European Commission has determined some territories or countries are inadequate to receive certain data. While we take efforts to restrict transfer to those countries, we may in some instances transfer such data because it is necessary for us or we have determined it is a compelling legitimate interest. Where we transfer your Personal Information to countries outside of the EEA, we will take steps to ensure that your Personal Information will continue to be protected. In those instances, we will implement appropriate safeguards for the transfer of Personal Information to our service providers in accordance with the applicable law, such as relying on our service providers’ Privacy Shield certification or implementing standard contractual clauses for data transfers. For a list of the data transferred, please visit our “Privacy Disclosures” page at https://eridirect.com/about-us/privacy-disclosures/.
5. Automated Decision Making
We may subject you to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, in a manner which produces legal effects or similarly significantly affects you, without your express consent. For a list of the purposes in which we make automated decision processing, please visit our “Privacy Disclosures” page at https://eridirect.com/about-us/privacy-disclosures/.
6. How To Complain Under GDPR
The GDPR also gives you the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the EU (or EEA) state where you work, normally live, or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred. We invite you to raise your concerns with us first, so that we can try to resolve them.
