Language I/O participates in the Privacy Shield program and complies with the
Privacy Shield Principles.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Language I/O commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EU and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact Language I/O at the address given below.
Language I/O has further committed to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning data transferred from the EU and Switzerland.
NOTICE: Where Language I/O collects Personal Information directly from individuals, it will inform them about the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information about them, the types of non-agent third parties to which Language I/O discloses that information, and the choices and means, if any, Language I/O offers individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of their Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information to Language I/O, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Language I/O uses the information for a purpose
other than that for which it was originally collected.
CHOICE: Language I/O 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, Language I/O 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.
Language I/O will provide individuals with reasonable mechanisms to exercise their
DATA INTEGRITY AND PURPOSE LIMITATION: Language I/O will use Personal Information and may share it with its Agents only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Language I/O will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. Language I/O will only collect and store Personal Information that is relevant to fulfill the purpose of the request and will retain such information no longer than appropriate to fulfill the purpose of that request.
ACCESS AND CORRECTION: Upon request, Language I/O will grant individuals reasonable access to Personal Information that it holds about them. In addition, Language I/O will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete.
RECOURSE, ENFORCEMENT AND LIABILITY: Language I/O is potentially liable for onward transfers to third parties of Personal Information of EU, UK, or Swiss individuals if an Agent receives, collects, processes, or discloses such information in a way which is inconsistent with this Policy.
Language I/O will conduct internal compliance audits of its relevant privacy practices to verify adherence to this Policy. Any employee or agent that Language I/O determines intentionally violates this Policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment and/or contract.
In addition, where Language I/O has knowledge that an Agent is using or disclosing Personal Information in a manner contrary with this Policy, Language I/O will take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate such processing.
Upon request, Language I/O will provide a summary or a representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of its contract with that agent to the Department. Language I/O is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
DISPUTE RESOLUTION/COMPLAINTS: Language I/O commits to resolve complaints about its collection or use of Personal Information. Any questions, concerns, or complaints regarding the collection, use or disclosure of Personal Information should be directed to the Language I/O Privacy Shield officer at the address given below. Language I/O will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints and disputes regarding use and disclosure of Personal Information in accordance with the principles contained in this Policy. If Language I/O should fail to provide timely acknowledgment of a complaint, or if a complaint cannot be resolved between Language I/O and the complainant, Language I/O has agreed to participate in the dispute resolution procedures of the EU Data Protection Authorities and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (collectively “DPA”) to resolve disputes pursuant to the Privacy Shield Policy privacy principles.
BINDING ARBITRATION: This is available to an individual to determine whether Language I/O has violated its obligations under the Policy and whether any such violation remains fully or partially un-remedied. The Privacy Shield panel has the authority to impose individual-specific, non-monetary relief.
LAW ENFORCEMENT REQUESTS: Language I/O may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
