Cross-Border Data Transfer

UnitedLex recognizes and respects the varying national laws and obligations and their impact on cross-border data transfers. When transferring personal information outside of the country of collection UnitedLex will do so in compliance with applicable law.

Users or individuals in the European Economic Area and United Kingdom should be aware that UnitedLex will transfer their personally identifiable information to employees located in the United States, only as is necessary to perform the purposes described in this privacy statement. Where we transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area, it will be protected in a manner that is consistent with how your personal data will be protected by us within it. This can be done in a number of different ways, for instance:

  • The country to which we send the data is approved by the European Commission to provide for an adequate data protection regime; or

  • The recipient has signed a contract based on “model contractual clauses” approved by the European Commission, obliging them to protect your personal data

In all cases, however, we will ensure that any transfer of your personal data is compliant with the applicable data protection law.

While European Court of Justice (ECJ) has invalidated the Privacy Shield framework as a valid transfer mechanism, as part of UnitedLex’s ongoing commitment to privacy, UnitedLex continues to participate in the Privacy Shield program. While UnitedLex relies on data transfer agreements, including Standard Contractual Clauses, for the purposes of transferring data from the European Economic Area and United Kingdom, UnitedLex maintains E.U.-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Certifications as a reflection of UnitedLex’s commitment to data protection, and where data is transferred from the European Economic Area to the US, UnitedLex adheres to the principles of Privacy Shield in addition to those set forth in data transfer agreements. A link to UnitedLex’s current privacy shield certification is available here. UnitedLex’s Privacy Shield policy, is available here for review.

You can obtain more details about the protection given to your personal data when it is transferred outside the European Economic Area by contacting the UnitedLex Privacy Office at Privacy@unitedlex.com.
