Where permitted by applicable laws, Pepper may transfer your personal information to an overseas entity which may not be subject to privacy laws or principles similar to those which apply to the jurisdiction you are located in, and any information disclosed to an overseas service provider may not have the same protection as under the privacy laws applicable to the jurisdiction you are located in.

To the greatest extent permitted by applicable laws, you consent to Pepper disclosing your personal information to entities located outside the location you are in for the purposes set out herein, on the basis that Pepper is not required to take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that any overseas recipient of your personal information complies with privacy laws applicable in the jurisdiction you are located in.
