  1. International Transfers. [Please note that transfer of personal data to US entities subject to federal surveillance laws (typically communications service providers) is unlikely to comply with the GDPR and even though such transfers are prevalent, they entail some level of legal risk. Please also note that the sections below require that you perform data mapping and ensure that all data transfers are compliant with the law.] Some of our service providers and affiliates are located in countries other than your own. When we transfer your personal data internationally, we will do so safely and securely and in accordance with applicable law.

If you are located in the EU, when we share your personal data with third parties based outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA“), we will ensure that they sign on agreements that require them to comply with applicable law, keep your data secure at similar levels to the level described in this Privacy Notice, and make sure that your data protection rights are protected. We will also implement the following safeguards:
      • 5.1.1. When we transfer your personal data to Israel, we rely on the decision by the European Commission that says that those countries are considered to provide an adequate level of data protection.
      • 5.1.2. Where we transfer your personal data to other countries, we (i) take additional security measures to protect the data and (ii) use specific contracts approved by the European Commission, known as the Standard Contractual Clauses, to give your personal data the same protection it has in the EEA.
      • 5.1.3. Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your Personal Data out of the EEA.
  2. Security. The security of your personal data is our highest priority. We work hard to make sure that your personal data will be held securely and that it will not be shared or lost accidentally. However, it is impossible to guarantee absolute security. The security of your data also depends on the security of the devices you use and the way in which you protect your user IDs and passwords. The measures we take include:
    • 6.1. Technical Measures. The electronic safeguards we employ to protect your personal data include secure servers, firewalls, and antivirus protections. We encrypt data in transit using secure HTTPS protocols.
    • 6.2. Access Control. We limit access to your personal data only to authorized personnel who have a need to know, including account managers, customer support staff, and software developers. We review these permissions regularly and revoke an employee’s access immediately after his/her termination.

    • 6.4. Personnel. We require employees to sign non-disclosure agreements according to applicable law and industry customary practice.
