7) Our third-party data processors
To manage some of our website activities, Hartley & Marks Publishers Inc. is able to use cloud platforms provided by third parties as sub-processors. In this regard, we inform you that some personal data acquired on the basis of this disclosure will be stored on servers located in the United States of America (Mailchimp and Google Analytics). The United States of America does not benefit from an EU Commission’s adequacy decision in accordance with Art. 25 of the EC Directive no. 46/95, therefore the transfer will take place on the basis of contractual clauses such as those approved by the Commission or by virtue of other suitable mechanisms for data transfer required by applicable regulations.
We permit certain trusted third parties to track usage and analyze data such as the source address that a page request is coming from, the date and time of the page request, the referring Website (if any) and other parameters in the URL.

8) How We Protect Your Information/Security
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. We take appropriate security measures to protect your information against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information and data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. Our website is designed to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (2018 -GDPR). However, these measures, standing alone, may not be sufficient to guarantee the security of your Personal Information. It is your responsibility to safeguard your passwords and to guard against unauthorized access to your computer. In the absence of negligence on our part, we shall not be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any Personal Information you provide to us via the Website or when ordering from Paperblanks through Customer Service.
