Accountability for Onward Transfer
If You are a European Individual, where we transfer your Personal Data to third-party service providers (see above) who perform services for us or on our behalf, we are responsible for the processing of that data by them and shall remain liable if they process your Personal Data in a manner inconsistent with GDPR or the Privacy Shield Principles referred to below or any other applicable law, unless we prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

If You are a European Individual, please be aware that we will receive your Personal Data directly in the United States, where we are established.

This policy currently states that if You engage in any transaction with us, we will usually retain your Personal Data for seven (7) years from the date the last transaction with You is concluded. Otherwise, we will usually delete your data seven (7) years from the date on which we last received a communication from You. This is however subject to the requirements of applicable data protection laws and the purpose for which the data is collected and used, taking into account legal and regulatory requirements to retain data for a minimum period.
