To deliver services to you there may be a requirement to use specialist companies that are based outside of the UK. In this regard, Steep In Need is relying on the legal derogation that any transfer would be necessary for the performance of a contract between the individual and the organisation or for pre-contractual steps taken at the individual’s request. Steep In Need will assess these companies and ensure that they meet the same requirement and safeguards as you would expect from Steep In Need in the UK.
All IT solutions in use by the company are administered and controlled in the UK. All safeguards that are in place for the UK staff such all technical and organisational controls will be fully enforced
