TREATMENT OF PERSONAL DATA AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION
This Website may include hyperlinks to other websites that are not operated or controlled by Stars Premier (“Third Party Sites”). This Policy only applies to this Website and Stars Premier is not responsible for the content or the privacy practices of Third-Party Sites.
This Policy may be updated and we, therefore, invite you to consult this Policy from time to time in order to familiarize yourself with any changes. The last paragraph of this Policy indicates when the Policy was last updated. The terms of this Policy are without prejudice to any contractual terms you may enter into with us, which will take precedence over the terms of this Policy.
DATA TRANSFER TO STARS PREMIER AND TRANS-BORDER DATA FLOW
Please be aware that the Internet is generally not regarded as a secure environment, and that Data sent via the Internet can be accessed by unauthorized third parties, potentially leading to disclosures, changes in content or technical failures. Data sent via the Internet may be transmitted across international borders even though both sender and receiver are located in the same country. Therefore, your Data may be forwarded to a country with a lower data protection level than exists in your country of residence.
Stars Premier accepts no responsibility or liability for the security of your data while in transit via the Internet to us. In order to protect privacy, we would like to remind you that you may choose another means of communication with us, where you deem it appropriate.
In specific situations, Stars Premier provides an encrypted communication transfer for your Data (e.g. payment processing), but this will be specifically indicated.
When paying through the Stars Premier webpage, the protocol used is HTTS (SSL), and not regular HTTP. This encrypts information and all secure sites (eBay, Amazon, etc.) include this type of encryption when paying online.

We undertake to take all reasonable steps in order not to allow your personal data to be seen by any third parties other than those, which have been engaged by Stars Premier to provide services to you.
