Choices about How We Use and Disclose Your Information for E.U. and Switzerland Residents
The following Principles serve to provide notice to E.U. and Switzerland residents that Advantage transfer personal data you provide outside of the E.U. or Switzerland, as applicable, to Advantage. Advantage is a member of the U.S.-E.U. Safe Harbor Framework and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework. Advantage complies with the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework and US-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. Advantage has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, and to view our certification page, please visit http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/
Advantage will not use personal data for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the E.U. or Swiss individual unless the individual affirmatively and explicitly consents (“opts-in”) to the processing, or unless an exception applies. Should the information collected be “sensitive” personal data, Advantage will not disclose such information to a third party or use it for any purpose other than for which it was originally collected unless you opt-in to Advantage doing so. Advantage also provides E.U. and Swiss individuals with the opportunity to withdraw consent at any time (“opt-out”) of their information being used for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected or when such information is to be disclosed for the first time to a third party, in which case their personal data will not be further processed. If at any time after providing personal data to Advantage, you decide to opt-out of Advantage’s use of your personal data, you may contact Customer Service or e-mail us at PersonalData@Advantage.com.
Access and Correction: Upon written request to Advantage, Advantage will provide individuals in the E.U. and Switzerland with reasonable access to their personal data. Advantage will also take reasonable steps to allow E.U. and Swiss individuals to review their information for the purposes of correction their information. There are certain limitations to the Access and Correction rights, as set forth in the US Department of Commerce’s Safe Harbor website. (http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/)
Advantage employs reasonable methods to ensure that any personal data held about E.U. and Swiss individuals is accurate, complete, current and otherwise reliable in relation to the purposes for which the information was obtained. Advantage collects personal data that is adequate, relevant and not excessive for the purposes for which it is to be processed. E.U. and Swiss individuals have a responsibility to assist Advantage in maintaining accurate, complete and current personal data about them.
If you believe that any personal data provided to Advantage is incorrect, or is, has been, or might be used inappropriately, please contact us at PersonalData@Advantage.com, and we will take steps to correct the information as appropriate.
Onward Transfer: If Advantage transfers personal data to a third party that is acting as an agent, Advantage will do so only if Advantage verifies that the third party (a) subscribes to the Safe Harbor Principles and has certified its compliance, and is accordingly independently responsible for complying with the Safe Harbor requirements; (b) is subject to the Data Protection Directives or another adequacy finding; or (c) Advantage has entered into a written agreement with such third party requiring that the third party provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the relevant Principles.
Adherence by Advantage to these Principles may be limited (i) to the extent required to respond to a legal or ethical obligation; (ii) to the extent necessary to meet national security, public interest or law enforcement obligations; and (iii) to the extent expressly permitted by an applicable law, rule or regulation.
We have implemented reasonable measures designed to secure your personal data from accidental loss and from loss, theft, destruction, unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls. Any payment transactions and account information will be encrypted using SSL technology.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the storage and processing of digital information and transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its security. Any transmission of personal data is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
As long as Advantage continues to store, use, or disclose personal data transferred to Advantage under the Principles, Advantage will apply to such personal data either the Principles or safeguards that provide no less privacy protection than the applicable Safe Harbor Framework then requires.
Advantage has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the US-EU and US-Swiss Safe Harbor Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, the BBB EU SAFE HARBOR, operated by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed by Advantage, please visit the BBB EU SAFE HARBOR web site at www.bbb.org/us/safe-harbor-complaints for more information and to file a complaint.
Advantage has in place procedures for training employees in the internal mechanisms for handling complaints and their implementation, and disciplining employees for failure to follow such mechanisms. Advantage also has in place internal procedures for periodically conducting objective reviews of compliance with the above policy.
