Personal data of individuals collected by NSE/AATSP may be stored and processed in the United States, Europe, or any other country in which NSE/AATSP, its vendors, or partners maintain facilities. NSE/AATSP generally collects and processes personal data in the US. In the event personal data is collected in the EU and is then transferred to the US or is transferred to any other country outside of the EU, NSE/AATSP will do so because there is a legal reason, such as to perform a contract, or to achieve a legitimate interest of the organization.

Other factors may include: the duration of the business or contractual relationship between NSE/AATSP and an individual; archiving of historical information; and legal requirements, including limitations periods during which a legal claim might be brought.
NSE/AATSP has put in place reasonable technical, physical, and administrative safeguards to protect personal data. Examples of these safeguards are storing personal data in secure, offsite facilities, limiting access to personal data to those employees who need access to fulfill their responsibilities, and providing training on responsible handling of personal data.
