To fulfil the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy, it may be necessary to communicate or transfer your personal data to third parties for the following reasons:

For an efficient service, these partners and service providers may be located in the United States or other countries or territories outside the European Economic Area that do not provide a level of data protection comparable to that of your country or, as the case may be, to that of the European Union.
