Interogo Foundation has its headquarters in Liechtenstein. Information we collect from you will be processed within the EU and in Liechtenstein.

By decision of 6 July 2018, the EEA Joint Committee announced the incorporation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) into the EEA Agreement, making the GDPR directly applicable to the EEA and Liechtenstein as of 20 July 2018, which means that Interogo Foundation may transfer personal data to its processing in Liechtenstein.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We also minimize the risk to your rights and freedoms by not collecting or storing sensitive information about you.

If we were to transfer your personal data to third countries, i.e. countries outside the EU/EEA, we will enter into the appropriate agreements and take other measures in accordance with applicable legal requirements.
