In the normal course of business, there may be a need for Butchers Hook or any other firm associated with the business, usually when processing an application for credit, personal data would have to be transferred outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) where those countries do not typically have the same protections and safeguards in place for the protection of personal data to those countries within the EEA.
Butchers Hook deal with some large, international corporations where data is likely to
be transferred in this way. Assurances and processes will always be put in
place and considered before any international transfer to a non-EEA country are
