2. Third parties

International transfer of personal data
The personal data we collect or receive about you may be transferred to and processed by recipients located inside or outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). These countries include those listed at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.htm which provides an adequate level of data protection from the point of view of European regulations on personal data protection. Recipients in the United States are partially certified under the "EU-US Privacy Shield" and are therefore considered to provide an adequate level of data protection from the point of view of European data protection regulations. Other recipients may be located in other countries that do not provide an adequate level of protection from the point of view of European data protection regulations. Ruthenotope shall take all necessary measures to ensure that transfers outside the EEA are adequately protected as required by the relevant data protection regulations. Regarding transfers to countries that do not provide an adequate level of data protection, we base the transfer on appropriate protection measures, such as standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission or the supervisory authority, an approved code of conduct together with binding and enforceable obligations of the recipient or approved certification mechanisms together with the binding and enforceable obligations of the recipient. You may request a copy of such appropriate safeguards by contacting us as set forth below in Section 6 (Contact Us).

4. What rights do you have and how can you utilize them?
