Notice to certain users concerning cross-border transfers
Red Pepper’s operations, data platforms, and private cloud storage solutions are located primarily in the United States (and, in other instances, outside your country of origin). If you provide information to us, the information may, as necessary to support our Services, be transferred out of the country of origin and sent to the United States. The transfer or disclosure of your personal information to our U.S. systems, or to other locations worldwide, is necessary for fulfillment of our Services and support to you and to enable Red Pepper and our service providers to give essential support to the Website and our Services.
We take necessary and appropriate steps, evaluated on a case-by-case basis, to protect the security and privacy of your personal information transferred to our U.S. systems, or to other locations worldwide, in accordance with applicable law. For example, we strive to implement Standard Contractual Clauses, as approved by the European Commission, and to enter into appropriate data transfer and processing agreements with our clients and business partners.
Red Pepper takes precautions, including industry standard technical and organizational security measures, to protect your information. Wherever we collect personal information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the webpage.
While we use encryption to protect personal information transmitted online, we also strive to protect your information offline. Only employees and personnel who need the information to perform a specific job for Red Pepper (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personal information. The computers and servers in which we store personal information are kept in a secure environment. This is all done to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of the user’s personal information under our control.
The company also uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for authentication and private communications to build users’ trust and confidence in the internet and website use by providing simple and secure access and communication of credit card and personal information.
