Does PayPal transfer data across national borders?

We support our operations through a network of computers, cloud-based servers, and other infrastructure and information technology, including third-party service providers. These parties may be established in jurisdictions other than your own and outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland. We have taken specific steps, in accordance with EEA data protection law, to protect your personal data.

For transfers of your personal data within PayPal-related companies, we rely on Binding Corporate Rules  approved by competent Supervisory Authorities.
