5. Transfer of personal data outside your jurisdiction

Our Services are global, and your personal data may be processed in any country where we have operations or where we engage service providers. Consequently, your personal data may be transferred to a destination outside the country where you are located, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country. By submitting your personal data, you acknowledge such transfer, storing or processing of personal data outside your jurisdiction.

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is processed securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice and applicable laws. This means that your personal data will only be transferred to a country that provides an adequate level of protection or where we have a valid transfer mechanism in place with the recipient in accordance with applicable law, such as the EU or UK standard contractual clauses.

We will provide you with further details about such international data transfers upon request. If you want to obtain a copy of the safeguards, please use the contact details below.

7. Complaints

If you have any complaints about our use of your personal data, please contact us as set out at the end of this Privacy Notice. You may also file a complaint to your local data protection authority, such as:

Country Data Protection Authority

8. Data subjects under the age of 18

We do not knowingly collect or process personal data relating to children as Controller. However, should any parent or guardian be concerned that their child’s personal data has been collected by us, please contact us as set out at the end of this Privacy Notice.

For the avoidance of doubt, please note that customers of Inspera may use the Inspera Assessment SaaS solution to collect information relating to children. Where a customer collects such data about children, the customer, not Inspera, is the Controller for such personal data, and is responsible for having proper procedures and parental consent in place. This Privacy Notice does not apply to the processing of such data collected by customers.

We may also receive information that you decide to share with us, such as chat, comments and likes. Your experience on the social media sites will be governed by the privacy policies of those sites. As we are joint Controllers with the social media for data processed from your use of social media tools or links on our site, and for aggregated insight that we get from your use of our pages on social media, you may also contact us if you would like to have more information, or if you want to exercise your privacy rights.
