We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
6. HOW AND WHERE DO WE STORE OR TRANSFER YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
In order to perform our contract with you we may use external third parties based outside the EEA such as Xero so their processing of your personal data may involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
Where there is not an adequacy decision by the European Commission in relation to a country we may use certain service providers under specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.

In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
