Under certain circumstances, personal data may be transferred to countries outside of the EU/EEA.

If so, FAS will take all appropriate measures in order to ensure that your personal data is adequately protected and that all processing is performed in accordance with this privacy policy. You can always be confident that all transfers of your personal data to countries outside of the EU/EEA are carried out in compliance with applicable data protection laws, as FAS will ensure that at least one of the following conditions are fulfilled in relation to each of those transfers:
