Disclosure to third parties

I use an external website platform and host (Squarespace) for the purposes of facilitating and operating this website and as a vehicle to provide information about my services. Squarespace’s servers are located in the USA, and they are certified as compliant within the Swiss-U.S. and EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks. 

The EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the European Commission and Swiss Administration, respectively, to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. On July 12, 2016, the European Commission deemed the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework adequate to enable data transfers under EU law.
