Please note that the legal regimes of some territories outside of the EEA do not always offer the same standard of data protection as those inside the EEA, although we will ensure that your Personal Information is only ever treated in accordance with this Policy and, if you are a client, our Engagement Letter.

Where necessary we have entered into standard European Commission approved form model data protection clauses with other TaleFin associates who have offices that are located in territories outside of the EEA, to provide you with the service required and with our external service providers and business partners in relation to services that they may provide that involve processing data from locations outside of the EEA for which we are Data Controller.
