Cross-border data transfer
We process data both within and outside of the United States, and we rely on legal mechanisms to facilitate the lawful transfer of data across borders.

The nature of Equlise’s services necessitates the flow of data from the European Union (EU) to customers, suppliers, and data processors within and outside the EU. To ensure that personal data from the EU is adequately protected when transferred outside of the EU, the GDPR mandates the use of specific legal mechanisms.
To comply with GDPR requirements, we typically utilize European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses or equivalent measures to transfer data from the EU. These clauses establish contractual obligations between parties involved in the transfer of personal data (such as between Equlise and its customers, suppliers, or data processors located outside of the European Union). These obligations bind all parties to ensure the protection of data privacy and security throughout the transfer process.

If you are eligible for a customer survey opportunity provided by a third party, the third-party MR company will provide your unique identification number and survey link to us. We will then invite you to participate in the customer survey via email. Please note that we will not share your name, email address, or phone number with third-party MR companies.
If you have any questions regarding this data sharing, please contact [email protected]. You can also unsubscribe from these survey opportunities through your account on Voqall.com.
