COOKIES and Other tracking technologies
Technologies such as cookies, web beacons, tags and scripts are used by Noether Partners and our partners, including affiliated marketing partners or analytical and business process service providers.

HOW WE STORE, PROCESS AND PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
The data we collect from you may be transferred and stored at a location within or outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

These employees may be responsible for, among other things, fulfilling your orders, processing your payment information and providing support services. Access to your information is limited to those who need to manage it. If your information is transferred from the EEA to a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the European Commission, we will ensure that it is adequately protected by (i) ensuring that standard contractual clauses are approved by the European Commission, appropriate data protection shield certification or binding corporate rules for a service provider’s subcontractor are in place, or (ii) relying on exemptions (e.g. contractual necessity). A copy of the appropriate mechanism can be provided for your review upon request, using the contact information below.
