16.1 The above policy sets out our obligations to persons resident in the UK and EEA.  If and to the extent that persons located outside this area who use this Site are not entitled to equivalent protection in their own countries we do not assume the same obligations (although, in practice, we will seek to apply a consistent policy).

 

16.2 If you are located outside the UK and EEA please note that in many instances your data will be transferred, used and stored by country-wide distributors or local stockists operating in your country in order, among other things, to fulfil the terms of any order placed by you.  These parties are independent distributors and stockists and not our agents and any failure to comply with local data protection legislation shall be a matter for them and not us.  Please note though that we do impose an obligation on them to adhere to local laws.  You should seek redress directly from such distributors or stockists in connection with any alleged breach of data protection law in your country. You indemnify us from and against any and all claims and liabilities arising in connection with data protection in your country.  Nothing in this paragraph is intended to, nor shall it, limit any mandatory obligation or liability we have under English law to you in respect of data protection.
