AVETTA has self-certified to the US Department of Commerce and declared its commitment to adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles of Notice; Choice; Accountability for Onward Transfer; Security; Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation; Access; and Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability (the “Principles”).

Information We Process. In accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles, we collect the categories of information described in Section 2 (Collection of Information) of our Privacy Policy. We process this information for the purposes described in Section 3 (Use of Your Personal Data) of our Privacy Policy. The information we process may include Personal Data.

Accessing Personal Data. The Privacy Shield Principles provide individuals located in the EU whose Personal Data we process the right to access their Personal Data and to review, correct, amend, or delete their Personal Data. EU individuals who would like to access their Personal Data may contact us at privacy@avetta.com.

Transfers to Third Parties and Your Choices. As described in Section 4 (Sharing or Disclosing Your Personal Data) of our Privacy Policy, we may transfer Personal Data to third parties. We contractually require those third parties to provide the same level of protections to Personal Data as required under the Principles. AVETTA currently does not transfer Personal Data to a third party for its own use; if in the future it does, individuals may choose to opt out of this type of transfer by emailing us at privacy@avetta.com. AVETTA will remain liable under the Principles if a third party processes Personal Data in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless AVETTA proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

In accordance with our legal obligations, we may also transfer, subject to a lawful request, Personal Data to public authorities for law enforcement or national security purposes.
