We run a global business and while your data may be collected in the country you are currently residing in, we may transfer it to other countries that do not have the same private data policies where you originally shared your information. We may collect data in the European Union and the European Economic Area, but we reserve the right to process and store it outside of these two jurisdictions.

To deliver the highest quality of service on this site, we may need to transfer your personal information to Ukraine and the United States.
