Proxy recognizes that the European Economic Area (the "EEA"), the UK, and Switzerland have established strict protections regarding the handling of Personal Information, including requirements to provide adequate protection for Personal Information transferred outside of the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland. To provide adequate protection for certain Personal Information received in the US from the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland, Proxy has elected to self-certify to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework administered by the US Department of Commerce ("Privacy Shield") and is in the process of achieving that self-certification. Proxy adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles of Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, and Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability.
For purposes of enforcing compliance with Privacy Shield, Proxy is subject to the investigatory and enforcement authority of the US Federal Trade Commission. For more information about Privacy Shield, see the US Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield website located at: https://www.privacyshield.gov. To review Proxy's representation on the Privacy Shield list, see the US Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield self-certification list located at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.
Above we describe the categories of Personal Information that we may receive in the US as well as the purposes for which we use that Personal Information. Proxy will only process Personal Information in ways that are compatible with the purpose that Proxy collected it for, or for purposes the individual later authorizes. Before we use your Personal Information for a purpose that is materially different than the purpose we collected it for or that you later authorized, we will provide you with the opportunity to opt out. Proxy maintains reasonable procedures to help ensure that Personal Information is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
Data Transfers to Third-Party Agents or Service Providers. We may transfer Personal Information to our third-party agents or service providers who perform functions on our behalf as described above. Where required by Privacy Shield, we enter into written agreements with those third-party agents and service providers requiring them to provide the same level of protection Privacy Shield requires and limiting their use of the data to the specified services provided on our behalf. We take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that third-party agents and service providers process Personal Information in accordance with our Privacy Shield obligations and to stop and remediate any unauthorized processing. Under certain circumstances, we may remain liable for the acts of our third-party agents or service providers who perform services on our behalf for their handling of Personal Information that we transfer to them.
Disclosures for National Security or Law Enforcement. Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your Personal Information in response to valid requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
As detailed above, Proxy maintains reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction in accordance with the Privacy Shield.
You may have the right to access the Personal Information that we hold about you and to request that we correct, amend, or delete it if it is inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of someone other than the individual requesting access. If you would like to request access to, correction, amendment, or deletion of your Personal Information, you can submit a written request to the contact information provided below. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity. In some circumstances we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information.
You may have the option to select binding arbitration for the resolution of your complaint under certain circumstances, provided you have taken the following steps: (1) raised your compliant directly with Proxy and provided us the opportunity to resolve the issue; (2) made use of the independent dispute resolution mechanism identified above; and (3) raised the issue through the relevant data protection authority and allowed the US Department of Commerce an opportunity to resolve the complaint at no cost to you. For more information on binding arbitration, see US Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield Framework: Annex I (Binding Arbitration).
