The security of your Personal Information is of paramount importance to us. We shall use appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access. All information that is collected through the Website is processed on secure data servers.
In the course of provision of your Personal Information to us, your Personal Information is likely to be transferred over the internet and/or stored on a cloud-based server. Although we make every effort to protect the Personal Information which you provide to us, the transmission of information over the internet and storage in a cloud-based server is not completely secure. As such, you acknowledge and accept that we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted to our website and that any such transmission is at your own risk.
7. Transferring your Personal Information outside of the UK.
7.1 The EEA, UK and other countries outside the EEA and the UK have differing data protection laws, some of which may provide lower levels of protection of privacy. It is sometimes necessary for us to transfer your Personal Information to countries outside the UK. In those cases we will comply with applicable UK and EEA laws designed to ensure the privacy of your Personal Information. We may transfer your Personal Information to Elbit Organisations in the EEA and/or the State of Israel.
7.2 Under data protection laws, we can only transfer your Personal Information to a country outside the UK where:
(a) in the case of transfers subject to UK data protection law, the UK government has decided the particular country ensures an adequate level of protection of Personal Information (known as an ‘adequacy regulation’) further to Article 45 of the UK GDPR. A list of countries the UK currently has adequacy regulations in relation to is available here. We rely on adequacy regulations for transfers to countries in the EEA and the State of Israel; or
(b) there are appropriate safeguards in place, together with enforceable rights and effective legal remedies for you, or
(c) a specific exception applies under relevant data protection law.
7.3 Where we transfer your Personal Information outside the UK we do so on the basis of an adequacy regulation or (where this is not available) legally-approved standard data protection clauses recognised or issued further to Article 46(2) of the UK GDPR. In the event we cannot or choose not to continue to rely on either of those mechanisms at any time we will not transfer your Personal Information outside the UK unless we can do so on the basis of an alternative mechanism or exception provided by UK data protection law and reflected in an update to this policy.
7.4 Any changes to the destinations to which we send Personal Information or in the transfer mechanisms we rely on to transfer Personal Information internationally will be notified to you in accordance with the section 11 below.

8.2 ESUK will consider all such requests and provide our response within a reasonable period (and in any event within any time period required by applicable law). Please note that those rights do not always apply and there are certain exceptions to them. We will also need to confirm your identity before acting on certain requests.
