If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA) and believe we maintain your personal data subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we will work with local data protection authorities to address any questions, concerns, or complaints regarding the transfer and or processing of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.
