These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Transferring personal data from the EU to the US

Information we collect from you via Glutamate.org will be processed in the United States (since the website is hosted there).

Glutamate.org relies on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. In particular, Glutamate.org collects and transfers to the U.S. personal data only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. Glutamate.org endeavors to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with this website and the practices described in this Privacy Notice. Glutamate.org also minimizes the risk to your rights and freedoms by not collecting or storing sensitive information about you.
