GDPR Transfer of Data

Myriad’s European affiliates, with offices in the EEA, store and transfer data, including Personal Data, to the United States and process it there.

The level of data protection in the United States is considered not to be the same as in the EEA according to the absence of a respective adequacy decision of the EU Commission. Myriad ensures that such transfers are carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection laws and regulations. Any transfers to third countries outside the EEA are secured through appropriate contractual guarantees such as the EU Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers to the United States where applicable. You may request and receive a copy of such documents from us.
