19.     Links to Third-Party Websites

a.     Our Services, as well as the email messages sent with respect to our Services, may contain links or access to websites operated by third parties that are beyond our control.

By using and accessing our products and services, users who reside or are located in countries outside of the United States agree and consent to the transfer to and processing of personal information on servers located outside of the country where they reside, and that the protection of such information may be different than required under the laws of their residence or location.
