Our participation in the Privacy Shield applies to all personal information that is subject to the Privacy Policy and is received from the European Union, European Economic Area, and Switzerland. We will comply with the Privacy Shield Principles in respect of such personal information. We also maintain an affirmative commitment to the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework and its principles, which will not be affected by Our participation in the Privacy Shield.

EU individuals have rights to access personal information about them and to limit use and disclosure of their personal information. We have committed to respect those rights.

Our accountability for personal information that We receive under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, We remain responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that We engage to process the personal information on Our behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless We prove that We are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

As further explained in under “Questions/Changes in Policy” set forth in the Privacy Policy, we encourage you to contact us should you have a Privacy Shield-related (or general privacy-related) complaint. We will respond within 45 days.

Please contact us to be directed to the relevant DPA contacts. As further explained in the Privacy Shield Principles, a binding arbitration option will also be made available to you in order to address residual complaints not resolved by any other means.
