Privacy Shield Data Privacy Policy

We Self-Certify Compliance with:

iBridge respects individual privacy and values the confidence of its customers, their stakeholders, employees, business partners, and others who may use our services. Not only do we strive to collect, use, and disclose personal information in a manner consistent with the laws of the countries in which we do business, but we also aim to uphold the highest ethical standards in our business practices. This Privacy Shield Privacy Policy sets forth the privacy principles that iBridge follows with respect to the protection and transfers of personal information, whether it is in electronic, paper, or verbal format, between the United States and member states of the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway (the European Economic Area). This statement applies to all personal information we handle (except as noted below), including on-line, off-line, and manually processed data.

 

PRIVACY SHIELD

The United States Department of Commerce and the European Commission have agreed on a set of data protection principles and frequently asked questions (the “Privacy Shield Principles”) to enable U.S. companies to satisfy European Union law requirements for adequate protection of personal information transferred from the E.U. to the United States. The EEA also has recognized the U.S. Privacy Shield as providing adequate data protection. Consistent with its commitment to protect personal privacy, iBridge adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.

 

DEFINITIONS

“iBridge” means iBridge, LLC and all subsidiaries and affiliates.

 

“Personal information” means any information or set of information that identifies or could be used by iBridge, its customers, or agents of its customers to identify an individual. Personal information does not include information that is encoded or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public personal information. It does not include information that pertains to a specific individual, but from which that individual could not reasonably be identified.

 

“Sensitive personal information” means personal information that reveals race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or that concerns health or sex life. In addition, iBridge will treat as sensitive personal information any information received from a third party where that third party treats and identifies the information as sensitive.

 

PRIVACY PRINCIPLES

The following privacy principles are based on the Privacy Shield Principles.

 

Notice and Choice

To the extent permitted by the Privacy Shield Agreement, iBridge reserves the right to process personal information in the course of providing professional services to our clients without the knowledge of individuals involved. When we collect personal information directly from individuals in the E.U., we inform them about the types of personal information we collect from them, the purposes for which we collect and use it, and the types of non-agent third parties to which we disclose that information. We also inform those individuals about the choices and means, if any, we offer individuals for limiting the use or disclosure of their information.

 

Disclosures and Transfers are applicable when:

  • We have the individual’s permission to make the disclosure
  • The disclosure is required by law or professional standards
  • The disclosure is reasonably related to the sale or disposition of all or part of our business
  • The information in question is publicly available
  • The disclosure is reasonably necessary for the establishment or defense of legal claims
  • The disclosure in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements
  • The disclosure is to another iBridge entity or to persons or entities providing services on our or the individual’s behalf (each a “transferee”), consistent with the purpose for which the information was obtained, if the transferee, with respect to the information in question:
  • is subject to law providing an adequate level of privacy protection
  • has agreed in writing to provide an adequate level of privacy protection
  • subscribes to the Principles

Permitted transfers of information, either to third parties or within iBridge, include the transfer of data from one jurisdiction to another, including transfers to and from the United States of America. Because privacy laws vary from one jurisdiction to another, personal information may be transferred to a jurisdiction where the laws provide less or different protection than the jurisdiction in which the information originated.

 

Accountability of Onward Transfer

The EU-US Privacy Shield Framework allows the transfer of personal information to a third party, who acts as a service provider or a vendor, as long as certain steps are taken to assure privacy and security protections. Under these circumstances, iBridge will take all reasonable steps to require any third party recipient to protect your personal information relevant to the Privacy Shield Framework. In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU individuals received pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield, iBridge is potentially liable.

 

Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use and confidentiality of information, either for its own purposes or on behalf of our clients, iBridge has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we process. However, we cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the internet or review tool.

 

Data Integrity

iBridge processes personal information only in ways compatible with the purpose for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for such purposes, we take reasonable steps to make sure that personal information is accurate, complete, current, and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use.

 

Access and Correction

If an individual becomes aware that information we maintain about that individual is inaccurate, or if an individual would like to update or review his or her information, the individual may contact us using the contact information below. We will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate. The individual will need to provide sufficient identifying information, such as name, address, birth date, and social security number. We may request additional identifying information as a security precaution. In addition, we may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or expensive in the circumstances, or as otherwise permitted by the Privacy Shield Agreement.

 

Enforcement and Dispute Resolution

iBridge utilizes the self-assessment approach to assure its compliance with our privacy statement. iBridge periodically verifies that the policy is accurate, comprehensive for the information intended to be covered, prominently displayed, completely implemented, and in conformity with the Principles.

 

In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, iBridge commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EU individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Private Shield policy should first contact iBridge LLC at: privacyshield@ibridgellc.com. iBridge is overseen by the US Federal Trade Commission, and is committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the [United States].
