Transfer of your information out of the EEA

We may transfer your personal information to South Africa in order to fulfil orders that you may place. South Africa is located outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and does not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. While the European Commission has not given a formal decision that South Africa provides an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the United Kingdom and EEA, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to an agreement that they will meet the same level of protection as in the UK (as permitted under  GDPR Article 46(2)(c) (Model Clauses) of the General Data Protection Regulation) that are designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal information. The use of these Model Clauses is based on a Data Protection Addendum which we enter into with our South African [GROUP COMPANY] [or contracting party].

If you would like further information please contact [email protected] (see ‘How to contact us’ below). We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the EEA or to any organisation (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.

  • require us to correct any mistakes in your information which we hold

Keeping your personal information secure

We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

How to complain

We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.

The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the European Union (or EEA) state where you work, normally live or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner who may be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/concerns/.
