To the extent the GDPR (EU or as otherwise implemented in the UK) applies and Com Laude will transfer personal data from either the European Economic Area (EEA) or UK, to any third country that is not subject to an adequacy decision under the applicable GDPR (whether EU or UK), Com Laude will only transfer such personal data if the transfer is subject to appropriate safeguards or derogations authorised by you in writing under the applicable privacy laws.  This may involve first having obtained the consent of the data subject.
