Transferring your information outside of Europe
In order to complete some enquiries or delivery of orders, we may need to pass your information to service suppliers who are registered outside the European Union ("EU"). For example, CM Scientific is the European distributor for a number of USA based manufacturing companies and technical enquiries may be discussed with these companies in order to provide information and quotation to customers.
