“Personal data” is information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
When you register for a Personify.com or Community website account, your personal data, will be collected and stored on servers primarily in Texas and Virginia. If you are a member, customer, or employee of a Personify client, our client may transfer your personal data to us in the United States. The data protection and privacy laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as the laws in your country. For example, personal data transferred to the United States may be subject to lawful access requests by federal and state authorities in the United States.
Personify is committed to subject to the Privacy Shield Principles all personal data received from the European Union or Switzerland in reliance on the Privacy Shield. Personify will remain responsible for any processing of personal data in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles by third party agents to which Personify has transferred personal data unless Personify proves it is not in any way responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Personify is committed to resolving 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 Personify by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Personify has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States. If you do not receive timely acknowledgement of your complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, please contact or visit JAMS for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you. Additionally, you may, under certain conditions, invoke binding arbitration for Privacy Shield complaints that are not resolved by any of the other Privacy Shield dispute resolution mechanisms.
Our Site is not directed to individuals under the age of 16, and we request that individuals under 16 not provide personal data to Personify. If we learn that we have collected personal data from a child under 16, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
We will retain your personal data as long as your Personifycorp.com or Personify Community account is considered to be active. See section below under “Your Rights” for additional information pertaining to the right of erasure, as well as other data subject rights.
We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures designed to assist in maintaining the security and confidentiality of personal data; safeguarding against anticipated threats to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of personal data; and protecting your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, and unauthorized disclosure or access.
However, whenever personal data is processed, there is a risk that such data could be lost, misused, modified, hacked, breached, and/or otherwise accessed by an unauthorized third party. No system or online transmission of data is completely secure. In addition to the technical and organizational measures that Personify has in place to protect your personal data, you should use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data. If you believe that your Personify account or any information you provided to us is no longer secure, notify us immediately at email@example.com.
If you reside in the European Union, you have the right under the General Data Protection Regulation to request access to and rectification or erasure of your personal data, data portability, restriction of processing of your personal data, the right to object to processing of your personal data, and the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. If you reside in the European Union or Switzerland, you also have the right, under the Privacy Shield, to access and to correct, amend or delete your personal data where it is inaccurate or where it has been processed in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy or where the rights of other individuals would be violated. If you live in the European Union or Switzerland, and if you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact Personify at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you reside in the European Union or Switzerland, your rights under the Privacy Shield include the right to notice of the choices and means that Personify offers you for limiting the use and disclosure of your personal data. Personify provides you with the opportunity to choose how your personal data may be used under certain circumstances. If your personal data is to be used for a new purpose that is materially different from that for which your personal data was originally collected or subsequently authorized, or if your personal data is to be disclosed to a third-party controller, Personify will provide you with an opportunity to choose whether to have your personal data so used or disclosed. When sharing your personal data with third-party processors that Personify has retained to perform services on its behalf and pursuant to its instructions, Personify may disclose your personal data without offering an opportunity to opt out.
Personify also provides you with specific rights related to any Sensitive Data. “Sensitive Data” under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is defined as personal data specifying 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. Under the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, “Sensitive Data” means personal data specifying medical or health conditions, personal sexuality, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, ideological or trade union-related views or activities, or information on social security measures or administrative or criminal proceedings and sanctions, which are treated outside pending proceedings. If your sensitive personal data is to be used for a new purpose that is different from that for which your sensitive personal data was originally collected or subsequently authorized, or is to be disclosed to a third party, Personify will obtain your affirmative express consent prior to such use or such disclosure.
If you reside outside of the European Union or Switzerland, you may have similar rights under your local laws. If you do not live in the European Union or Switzerland but you think you have any of these data subject rights under your local laws, please contact Personify at email@example.com.
If your personal data was collected by and on behalf of Personify (e.g., through our website), then such personal data is controlled by Personify, Inc., which is located at 6500 River Place Blvd, Bldg. III, Ste 125, Austin, TX 78730 and which you can contact by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
