EU-U.S. & Swiss-US Privacy Shield
Suddath® participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework. Suddath is committed to subjecting all personal data received from European Union (EU) member countries and Switzerland, in reliance on the Privacy Shield Framework, to the Framework’s applicable Principles. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Framework, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield List. [https://www.privacyshield.gov/list]
Pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, Suddath is responsible for the processing of personal data it receives and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. Suddath complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.
With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, The Suddath Companies is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, Suddath may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request.
Suddath has further committed to cooperate with EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner for Swiss employee with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning human resources data transferred from the EU and Switzerland in the context of the employment relationship. Under certain conditions, more fully described on the Privacy Shield website[https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=How-to-Submit-a-Complaint], you may be entitled to invoke binding arbitration when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted.
Collection of Information
We collect personally identifiable information, like SSN, passport related information, government ID, names, postal addresses, email addresses, etc. (“PII”), when voluntarily submitted by our visitors. The information you provide is used to facilitate the relocation services that we provide to you or as part of your employment benefits and compensation. This information is only used to fulfill your specific request, unless you give us permission to use it in another manner (ex. to add you to one of our mailing lists). We do not share, sell, rent or trade PII with third parties for their promotional purposes.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the site.
We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Policy.
We may use other third parties to provide various services, such as packing, loading, shipping, delivery, and storage of goods. When, pursuant to the requested services, you utilize any of the services listed above, we will share only that PII which is relevant to the specific services being provided by the third party. These third parties are prohibited from using your PII for any other purpose.
Distribution of Information
We reserve the right to disclose your PII (i) to governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation; (ii) as required by law; and (iii) when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on the Site. We will only disclose PII to governmental agencies or other companies when trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions or investigating fraud which has already taken place. PII is never provided to these governmental agencies or companies for marketing purposes. We may also disclose your personal information to any other third party with your prior consent.
Commitment to Data Security
Your PII is kept secure. Only authorized employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information. Emails generated by the Site are for the sole purpose of facilitating your relocation services. An opt-out option is available to you through your relocation counselor. Opting out may cause interruptions in, and/or loss of, relocation benefits provided to you by your employer. Please contact your relocation counselor or call (904) 390-7100 for more information on opting out.
The security of your PII is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as bank account information) on the Relocation Zone portal, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (“SSL”) and secure HTTP. To learn more about SSL, follow this link:
We follow generally-accepted industry standards to protect PII submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on the Site, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Updating Your PII
Upon request, Suddath will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. You can update, change or delete your PII by accessing the Relocation Zone® and signing in using your username and password. Once you sign in to the Relocation Zone, you can update your PII by clicking on the “My Profile” button and then the “Start Change Request” button. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
Suddath acknowledges that you have the right to access your personal information. Suddath has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should direct their query to our Client (the data controller). If requested to remove data we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
In certain circumstances we may be required by law to retain your personal information, or may need to retain your personal information in order to continue providing a service, resolve disputes or enforce our agreements.
