To exercise this right, please see the “Contact Us” section below.
Accountability for Onward Transfer. If we receive personal information subject to our certification under the Privacy Shield and then transfer such information to a third-party service provider acting as an agent on our behalf, we have certain liability under the Privacy Shield if the agent processes such information in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield except when we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

Independent Recourse Mechanism.

Such individuals may direct complaints about their personal information to their respective DPA or the FDPIC (as applicable).
Binding Arbitration. You have the possibility, under certain conditions, to invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance not resolved by any of the other Privacy Shield mechanisms pursuant to the Privacy Shield’s Recourse, Enforcement and Liability Principle and Annex I of the Privacy Shield.
