  1. International transfers

When we share your personal data within IQL, this involves transferring your personal data outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

In some cases, the parties who we use to process personal data on our behalf are based outside the EEA, therefore their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of such data outside the EEA. Similarly, in the course of advising clients based outside of the EEA, we may be required to share matter-relevant personal data with them. Where this is the case we will only share the minimal amount of personal data necessary for the purpose of processing and, where possible, we will share the personal data in an anonymised form.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • we will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission; and
  • where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which gives personal data the same protection it has within the EEA.

Please contact us at if you would like further information about the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
