To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit http://www.privacyshield.gov.
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.
For any complaints that cannot be resolved with Us directly, We have chosen to cooperate with EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and comply with the information and advice provided to it by an informal panel of DPAs in relation to such unresolved complaints (as further described in the Privacy Shield Principles). 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.
We are subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
We may be required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
