15. COMPLAINTS. Should you wish to report a complaint or if you feel that our Company
has not addressed your concern in a satisfactory manner, you may contact the Information
Commissioner’s office (if an individual located in the United Kingdom) or the European
Data Protection Board.
16. INDIVIDUALS LOCATED WITHIN THE UNITED KINGDOM.
A. Restricted Transfers: Our Company may make a restricted transfer if the
receiver is located in a third country or territory or is an international
organization, covered by UK “adequacy regulations.” If there are no adequacy
regulations about the country, territory or sector for the restricted transfer, our
Company should then find out whether you can make the transfer subject to
‘appropriate safeguards’ as listed in the UK GDPR. Before we rely on an
appropriate safeguard to make a restricted transfer, we must be satisfied that
the data subjects of the transferred data continue to have a level of protection
essentially equivalent to that under the UK data protection regime. We do this
by undertaking a risk assessment, which takes into account the protections
contained in that appropriate safeguard and the legal framework of the
destination country (including laws governing public authority access to the
data). If our assessment is that the appropriate safeguard does not provide the
required level of protection, we will include additional measures. Appropriate
safeguards may be: (1) A legally binding and enforceable instrument between
public authorities or bodies; (2) binding corporate rules as defined in Article 47
of the UK GDPR; (3) a contract incorporating standard data protection clauses
recognized or issued in accordance with the UK data protection regime; (4) a
code of conduct approved by the ICO; (4) Certification under an approved
certification scheme; (5) a bespoke contract governing a specific restricted
transfer which has been individually authorized by the ICO; or (6)
Administrative arrangements between public authorities or bodies. If none of
the criteria above apply for the transfer, we may still make the transfer if the
transfer is covered by an ‘exception’ set out in Article 49 of the UK GDPR.
B. CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13: All website users located in the
United Kingdom must be at least 13 years of age. If we learn we have received

reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 located in the United
Kingdom has provided Personal Data to us through the Website or Services,
please contact us and we will endeavor to delete the information from our
database. If we learn a user is under 13 years of age, we will not disclose any
personal information to any third parties unless the user has given opt-in
consent. If you have reason to believe that a user is under 13 years of age,
notify the Company in order to prevent disclosure of any personal data without
