Participation in Privacy Shield Framework
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, HEAT commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. European Union and/or Swiss, as applicable individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact HEAT at:
Hager Environmental & Atmospheric Technologies (HEAT)
539 Milwaukee Way
Knoxville, TN 37932
HEAT commits to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and/or the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner and comply with the advice given by the panel and/or Commissioner with regard to data transferred from the EU and/or Switzerland.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has jurisdiction over HEAT’s compliance with the Privacy Shield.
An individual has 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 and then link to Annex I for additional information: https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction
Annex I: Section C
An individual who decides to invoke this arbitration option must take the following steps prior to initiating an arbitration claim: (1) raise the claimed violation directly with the organization and afford the organization an opportunity to resolve the issue within the timeframe set forth in Section III.11(d)(i) of the Principles; (2) make use of the independent recourse mechanism under the Principles, which is at no cost to the individual; and (3) raise the issue through their Data Protection Authority to the Department of Commerce and afford the Department of Commerce an opportunity to use best efforts to resolve the issue within the timeframes set forth in the Letter from the International Trade Administration of the Department of Commerce, at no cost to the individual. This arbitration option may not be invoked if the individual’s same claimed violation of the Principles (1) has previously been subject to binding arbitration; (2) was the subject of a final judgment entered in a court action to which the individual was a party; or (3) was previously settled by the parties.
In addition, this option may not be invoked if an EU Data Protection Authority or the Commissioner (1) has authority under Sections III.5 or III.9 of the Principles; or (2) has the authority to resolve the claimed violation directly with the organization. A DPA’s/the Commissioner's authority to resolve the same claim against an EU or a Swiss data controller does not alone preclude invocation of this arbitration option against a different legal entity not bound by the DPA/Commissioner's authority.
Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
We only collect Personal Data that is relevant to providing our Services. We process Personal Data compatible with us providing Services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Data received under the Privacy Shield is needed for HEAT’s Services, accurate, complete, and current.
For Personal Data and Sensitive Personal Data, HEAT will offer clients the opportunity to choose (opt-in) whether Personal Data is (a) to be disclosed to a 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. In other cases, where Personal Data is incorporated in data sets transferred from institutional customers, consent will be obtained by those institutional customers. HEAT will provide reasonable mechanisms to exercise choices.
HEAT will use Personal Data only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual or institutional entity client. HEAT will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Data is relevant to its intended use. We will only collect and store Personal Data that is relevant to fulfill the purpose of the request.
Transfers to Third Parties
In the rare event that a third party must be used, HEAT will obtain assurances from an independent third party subcontractors that they will safeguard Personal Data consistently with this Policy. Where HEAT has knowledge that an agent is using or disclosing Personal Data in a manner contrary to this Policy, HEAT will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.
Onward Transfers of Personal Data
We will not transfer Personal Information originating in the EU to third parties unless such third parties have entered into an agreement in writing with us requiring them to provide at least the same level of privacy protection to your Personal Information as required by the Principles of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. We will only transfer Personal Information to cloud service providers who need the information in order to provide services to or perform activities on Our behalf. In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU individuals received pursuant to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, HEAT is potentially liable.
Access to Personal Data
We may need to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, for law enforcement or national security reasons, or when such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding or court order, or when otherwise required by law. We do not offer an opportunity to opt out from this category of disclosure.
