International transfer of personal data and third parties

We may transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), and this section helps explain why and how.

Unfortunately, there is simply at lack of infrastructure providers for video conferencing and customer communication with data centers outside of the US, and we therefore rely on the Standard Contractual Clauses issued by the European Commission to transfer personal data to data processors outside of the EU, only where we consider it absolutely necessary to deliver best in class online video conferencing.

With the EU / US Privacy Shield invalidation we have attempted to move the storage of personal data back onto EU soil wherever we could without compromising our ability to deliver best in class video conferencing. Our core infrastructure is therefore now located at AWS data centers in Paris, France, our database infrastructure is located in Frankfurt, Germany, and the usage analytics processing is carried out with Mixpanel in the Netherlands.

As of November 2020, we have carried out individual risk assessment of all our data processors and entered into Data Processing Agreements that relies on SCCs for the transfer with each of them.

You can find the full list of sub-processors in our dedicated GDPR policy, their location, and the purposes for which we transfer the data there.
