International Transfers of Your Personal Data

Occasionally, countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) may receive personal data. The hosting facility for Fitzonomics – Bluehost Inc – is located in the United States of America (USA).

The US-EU Privacy Shield Framework covers personal data transfers to Bluehost Inc.  The European Commision (EC) made a ‘partial adequacy’ decision with respect to the data protection laws of the USA, restricted to personal data transfers.  This means that only certain companies that abide by the Privacy Shield principles may benefit from free data transfers. Bluehost is one of these companies.    

Appropriate safeguards may protect any other transfers to the USA.  In other words, under EC approved or adopted use of standard data protection clauses. You may obtain a copy of these here:
