Data transfers to the U.S. from the EU, UK (including Gibraltar), and Switzerland (as of the effective date of the recognition of the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework by the Swiss Federal Administration) are based on the Data Privacy Framework as described in detail in the Section below.
9. Data Privacy Framework
For the purposes of this Section, the following definitions apply:
“Data Privacy Framework” shall mean the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework.
“Data Privacy Framework Principles” or “Principles” shall mean the principles which present a set of requirements governing the U.S. participating organizations’ use and treatment of personal data received from the EU, UK or Switzerland and apply to the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, and the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework.
“EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework” shall mean the EU-U.S. data transfer mechanism developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce which was recognized by the European Commission Implementing Decision of 10 July 2023 to provide an adequate level of protection of personal data pursuant to the GDPR.
“Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework” shall mean the Swiss-U.S. data transfer mechanism to be recognized by the Swiss Federal Administration’s adequacy decision under the FADP.
“UK Extension to the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework” shall mean the UK-U.S. data transfer mechanism which was recognized by the UK Government decision effective as of 12 October 2023 to provide an adequate level of protection of personal data pursuant to the UK GDPR.
Our commitment: Our transfers of personal data from the EU, UK (including Gibraltar) and Switzerland to the U.S., are conducted in strict compliance with the Data Privacy Framework set forth by the US Department of Commerce. More information about the Data Privacy Framework can be found here.
Data Privacy Framework Principles: We have self-certified that we adhere to the Data Privacy Framework Principles of notice, choice, accountability for onward transfer, security, data integrity and purpose limitation, access, recourse, enforcement, and liability. You can easily check our self-certification status by visiting the website of the US Department of Commerce.
We comply with the Data Privacy Framework Principles as described below.
Choice: You have an opportunity to choose (opt out) whether your personal data is (i) to be disclosed to a third party or (ii) to be used for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. You can do so by contacting us at email@example.com. Please note that, in certain situations (e.g., when a disclosure is made to a third party that is acting as an agent to perform task(s) on our behalf or under our instructions and we have entered into a contract with such party), it may not be possible to opt-out without impairing the services provided by us.
Accountability for onward transfer: When we act in the capacity of a data controller and transfer your personal data to a third-party controller, we comply with the Principles of “notice” and “choice” described above. We also enter into a contract with the third-party controller that ensures that such data may only be processed for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by you (the data subject) and that the recipient will provide the same level of protection as the Principles and, if this obligation is no longer met, a notification will be provided to us. The contract also provides that, when such a determination is made, the third-party controller ceases processing or takes other reasonable and appropriate steps to remediate.
When we transfer personal data to a third party acting as an agent (our data processor / service provider), we ensure that the agent: (i) uses personal data only for limited and specified purposes; (ii) is obligated to provide at least the same level of protection as it is required by the Principles; (iii) takes reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that it effectively processes the personal data transferred in a manner consistent with our obligations under the Principles; (iv) is required to notify us if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by the Principles; and (v) upon our notice, including under (iv), take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing of personal data. We will also provide a summary or a representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of the contract, upon request of a public authority.
In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
In particular, we remain responsible and liable under the Principles if third-party agents that we engage to process personal data on our behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless we can prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
Security: We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. When ensuring such security, we take into due account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the personal data. Our security measures are listed in the Section “Security Measures”.
Data integrity and purpose limitation: We collect only a minimal amount of personal data that is relevant for the purposes of processing. We do not process personal data in a way that is incompatible with the purposes for which such personal data was collected or subsequently authorized by an individual (you). Moreover, we put reasonable efforts to ensure that personal data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. We adhere to the Principles for as long as we retain personal data.
Access: You have the right to access the personal data that we hold about you. Moreover, you are able to correct, amend, or delete that data where it is inaccurate, or has been processed in violation of the Principles. Your rights are described in detail in Section “Your Rights”. Please note that this right cannot be exercised if the burden or expense of providing access to your personal data would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy or where the rights of persons other than you would be violated. You can exercise your rights by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recourse, enforcement, and liability: For the purposes of Data Privacy Framework compliance, we are subject to the investigatory and enforcement authority of the US Federal Trade Commission. In compliance with the Principles, we commit to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information transferred to the U.S. pursuant to the Data Privacy Framework. EU, UK, and Swiss individuals with Data Privacy Framework inquiries or complaints should first contact us by email at email@example.com. We will respond to your claim without undue delay.
We have further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, Data Privacy Framework Services, operated by BBB National Programs. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit the BBB National Programs website for more information and to file a complaint. This service is provided free of charge to you.
If your Data Privacy Framework complaint cannot be resolved through the above channels, under certain conditions, you may invoke binding arbitration for some residual claims not resolved by other redress mechanisms. See here for more information.
