4. Data transfer to third countries

(4.1) Personal data is only transferred to countries outside the European Union (EU) if the conditions of Article 44 ff. GDPR are met. A third country is a country outside the European Union (EU) in which the GDPR is not directly applicable.

(4.2) The EU Commission has not issued an adequacy decision for the USA pursuant to Article 45 (1) GDPR. This is because, according to the European Court of Justice in its ruling of 16.07.2020 (Case C-311/18, “Schrems II”), there is no level of data protection in the USA that would be comparable to that in the EU. When transferring personal data to the US, there is a theoretical risk that US authorities could gain access to the personal data on the basis of the surveillance programs PRISM and UPSTREAM based on Section 702 of FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) and on the basis of Executive Order 12333 or Presidential Police Directive 28. According to the European Court of Justice, EU citizens do not have effective legal protection against these accesses in the US or the EU.

(4.3) We only transfer your personal data to the USA or other third countries if either

  • the recipient provides sufficient guarantees in accordance with Article 46 of the GDPR for the protection of personal data – for example, the conclusion of standard contractual clauses between us and the recipient (Article 46(2)(c) of the GDPR) or binding internal data protection rules approved by the competent data protection authorities (Article 46(2)(b) of the GDPR). In this way, the recipient assures that the data is adequately protected and thus guarantees a level of protection comparable to the GDPR.

  • one of the exceptions listed in Article 49 of the GDPR applies – for example, your express consent (Article 49(1)(a) of the GDPR) or if the transfer is necessary for the performance of contractual obligations between you and us (Article 49(1)(b) of the GDPR).
