Transfer of data to third countries (i.e. countries outside the EU/EEA)

D21 acts as an administrative body for Zonta International in the USA, which in turn administers personal data about you in a membership register.

D21 hereby transfers personal data to Zonta International, i.e. to parties outside the European Economic Area, EEA. This means that personal data is transferred to a country with a different level of protection for personal data than applies within the EEA. On, the "Privacy Policy" describes how your personal data is processed by Zonta International.
