ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR USERS IN THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA AND UNITED KINGDOM:
Pretty Panicked is established in the United States and has operations and service providers in the
United States and throughout the world. As such, we and our service providers may transfer your
personal information to, or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide levels of data protection
equivalent to those in your country of residence. By using our Site or Services, or otherwise interacting

those other countries may be entitled to access your personal information.
Pretty Panicked is aware of the July 16, 2020 ruling by the European Court of Justice invalidating the EU-
US Privacy Shield Framework. Accordingly, Pretty Panicked will take adequate measures designed to
protect the transfer of personal information of individuals in the European Economic Area (EU Member
States, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) (“EEA”), such as relying on the European Commission-
approved Standard Contractual Clauses (“EU SCCs”) as a legal mechanism for such transfer, or other
adequate transfer mechanism as required under relevant data protection laws, as well as additional
safeguards, where appropriate. A copy of these clauses may be obtained by contacting us at the email
address listed below.

UK’s International Data Transfer Addendum (collectively the “UK SCCs”).
For individuals located in the EEA or the UK, the term “personal information,” as used in this section, is equivalent to “personal data” under applicable European and UK data protection legislation. If you are located in the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland, you have certain rights and protections under applicable law regarding the processing of your personal information, as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and this section applies to you.
