The following information describes the principles that Coyle (including “the Company”, “we”, or “us”) follows while managing your Personal Information (“PI”):
- Notice – If we collect any PI from you directly, we will inform you of the purpose for which we collect and use Personal Information. The company must have the agreement of the individual for any disclosure or use of PI for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected. Prior to disclosing PI to non-agent third parties, the individual will be notified and presented with a choice and means (an “opt out” option) for limiting the disclosure of the PI. An exception is government and law enforcing agencies in cases where we are required by law to provide such information, including without notice.
- Choice – We will provide the opportunity to choose (i.e.: to opt out) whether the individual’s PI may be disclosed to non-agent third parties or be used for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected. This is accomplished using the means provided in the notice, or by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the contact information provided below.
- Accountability for Onward Transfer – We will ensure that any agent third party to which PI may be disclosed subscribes to the same principles for managing PI, and agrees in writing to provide an adequate level of privacy protection. We may be liable for the appropriate transfer of personal data to agent third parties. Also note that we may be required to disclose an individual’s personal data in response to a lawful request by governmental authorities including to meet national security and law enforcement requirements..
- Security – We will take reasonable steps to protect PI from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure PI from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We cannot guarantee the security of PI on or transmitted via the Internet.
- Relevance – We shall collect only as much PI as needed in order to conduct specific, identified activities related to our business.
- Retention – We shall keep individuals’ PI only as long as needed for the purposes for which it was originally collected, or as permitted by law.
- Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation – We shall only process PI in a way that is compatible with, and relevant to, the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for those purposes, we shall take reasonable steps to ensure that PI is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.
- Access – We acknowledge the right of EU and Swiss individuals to access their personal data that is collected under the Privacy Shield and will allow an individual access to his or her PI. We will allow the individual to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate information, except where the burden or expense of providing such access would be disproportionate to the risks of the privacy of the specific individual in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than the specific individual would be violated. Individuals wishing to access their PII may do so by logging on to the website where they registered. End users who wish to access the personal data that Coyle hosts on behalf of our company clients, or to make choices concerning their data, are invited to contact the company client directly.
