Notice and Choice

To the extent permitted by the Safe Harbor Principles, we reserve the right to process Personal Information in the course of providing the Site to you without the knowledge of the entities or individuals involved. If and when we collect Personal Information directly from individuals residing in the EU, we will 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 will also inform those individuals about the choices and means, if any, that we offer to limit the use or disclosure of their information.

Where we receive Personal Information from our subsidiaries, affiliates or other entities in the EU, we will use and disclose such information in accordance with the notices provided by such entities and the choices made by the individuals to whom such Personal Information relates.

To the extent permitted by law, we will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether their Personal Information is: (a) to be disclosed to a non-agent third party; or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.

For Sensitive Personal Information, we will give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively and explicitly (opt-in) consent to the disclosure of the information to a non-agent third party or the use of the information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.

We will not disclose an individual’s Personal Information to third parties, except when one or more of the following conditions is true:

  • we have the individual’s permission to make the disclosure;

  • 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 to one of our related entities or to persons or entities providing Sites 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 laws providing an adequate level of privacy protection;

Any claim arising out of or relating to our adherence to the Safe Harbor Principles, or the breach thereof, that cannot be resolved through our internal processes, will be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its applicable commercial rules. Any arbitrator will be either an attorney or retired judge having significant and recognized experience with, and knowledge of, privacy issues and information technology.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, consistent with the requirements of the Safe Harbor Principles or the United States Department of Commerce. We will post any revised privacy policy in our relevant work places, train relevant employees about such changes and how to comply with them, and will publish any amended privacy policy on the Site.
