Seesaw contracts with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide data center and server hosting services for Seesaw -- this means things like making sure the Seesaw servers are always on and fast regardless where in the world you are accessing Seesaw. Amazon has robust security practices and is contractually prohibited from using any personal information that is stored on servers they operate for any purpose other than to operate the Seesaw service.
When transferring any Personal Information outside of the EU, UK, or Switzerland we rely on standard contractual clauses ("SCCs"), one of the legally recognized transfer mechanisms by the ECJ. Our Data Processing Agreement contains the SCCs drafted by the European Commission, which outlines the collection, use, and retention of Personal Information from the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland transferred to the United States.
