As a result of the decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union in Case C-311/18 (“Schrems II”) on July 16, 2020, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is no longer suitable as a mechanism to ensure the lawfulness of transfers of Personal Data from the EEA, UK and Switzerland to the US. Contract Logix maintains adherence to this Framework with regard to personal data already transferred from the EEA, UK or Switzerland to the US. Contract Logix continues to ensure the lawful transfer of personal data from the EEA, UK and Switzerland to the US through alternative mechanisms such as the Standard Contractual Clauses (the “SCCs”), as approved by the European Commission. These were not invalidated by the decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union as a lawful transfer mechanism.
Choice. Contract Logix will not use your PII for a purpose that is materially different from the purposes for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you, nor will we disclose your PII to a third party, unless such disclosure is made to a third party that is acting as an agent pursuant to a contract with Contract Logix, to perform tasks on behalf of and under the instructions of Contract Logix.
Certain PII, such as information about medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information specifying the sex life of an individual, is considered “Sensitive Information.” Contract Logix will also treat any PII received from a third party where the third party identifies and treats such PII as sensitive, as Sensitive Information. Contract Logix will always obtain affirmative express consent (opt in) from individuals if Sensitive Information is to be (i) disclosed to a third party or (ii) used for a purpose other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individuals through the exercise of opt-in choice.
Accountability for Onward Transfer. We are responsible for the processing of PII we receive under the Privacy Shield and/or SCCs (as applicable) and subsequently transfer to a third party acting as an agent on our behalf. Contract Logix will comply with the Notice and Choice Principles in any transfer of PII to a third party acting as a controller or an agent. In addition, any such third-party controller or agent will be under a contract that provides that (i) such PII may only be processed for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by the individual, and (ii) the controller will provide the level of protection required by the Privacy Shield Framework and/or SCCs (as applicable), and (iii) the controller will notify Contract Logix if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet this obligation, and that upon such determination, the third party controller will cease processing information and take other reasonable and appropriate steps to remediate unauthorized processing. Upon request, Contract Logix will provide a summary or a representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of any such contract with the Department of Commerce.
In cases where an EU or Swiss individual’s data is transferred onward to third parties pursuant to the SCCs, Contract Logix may be potentially liable.
Security. Contract Logix takes reasonable and appropriate measures to protect any PII that it creates, maintains, uses, or disseminates, from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation. Consistent with the Privacy Shield Principles and/or SCCs (as applicable), Contract Logix will not process personal information in a way that is incompatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual who provided such PII. To the extent necessary for those purposes, we take reasonable steps to ensure that PII is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.
Any PII collected by Contract Logix will be maintained in a form identifying or making identifiable the individual who provided such PII only for as long as it serves the purpose of processing for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual who provided such PII. This does not prevent Contract Logix from processing PII for longer periods for the time and to the extent such processing reasonably serves the purposes of archiving in the public interest, journalism, literature and art, scientific or historical research, and statistical analysis.
Depending on the circumstances, examples of compatible processing purposes may include those that reasonably serve customer relations, compliance and legal considerations, auditing, security and fraud prevention, preserving or defending our legal rights, or other purposes consistent with the expectations of a reasonable person given the context of the collection of PII.
Access. All individuals have access to the PII that Contract Logix holds about them, and they are empowered to correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate, or has been processed in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles and/or SCCs (as applicable), except where the burden or expense of providing such access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the individual in question, or where the rights of other individuals would be violated by such access.
Contract Logix has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Privacy Shield Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, the BBB EU PRIVACY SHIELD, operated by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you do not receive timely acknowledgement of your complaints, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit https://www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers/ for more information and to file a complaint.
If Contract Logix becomes subject to any Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) or court order based on non-compliance, we will make public any relevant Privacy Shield-related sections of any compliance or assessment report submitted to the FTC, to the extent consistent with confidentiality requirements.
Contract Logix submits to being subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the FTC, Department of Transportation, or any other U.S. authorized statutory body about our self-certification and implementation practices. Contract Logix understands and acknowledges the possibility, under certain conditions, that you may invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance which have not been resolved by any other Privacy Shield method.
