Former, current, or prospective volunteer contacts have the right to exercise choice (opt-out) from our use of their EU Personal Data for volunteer notification purposes. To exercise this right, please follow the instructions in any direct message you may have received (e.g., click the provided opt-out link in the email message or send us an email or postal mail request to opt-out in accordance the instructions provided in the direct message). We do not otherwise use or disclose EU Personal Data in a manner that is subject to choice requirements under the Framework because we do not provide EU Personal Data to third parties other than those acting as our agent to perform tasks on our behalf.
On your request, we will grant you reasonable access to your Personal Information that we hold, as well as such other related rights as are provided by applicable law. In addition, we will take reasonable steps to permit you to correct, amend or delete your Personal Information that you demonstrate to be inaccurate or incomplete. However, in accordance with applicable law, we may limit or deny access to your Personal Information where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or where the legitimate rights of persons other than you would be violated. We reserve the right to take reasonable steps to authenticate the identity of any individual seeking access to Personal Information.
CERVIS' accountability for personal data that it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, CERVIS remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process the personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless CERVIS proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
We encourage you to contact us should you have a Privacy Shield-related (or general privacy-related) complaint. For any complaints that cannot be resolved with CERVIS directly, CERVIS has chosen to cooperate with EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and comply with the information and advice provided to it by an informal panel of DPAs in relation to such unresolved complaints (as further described in the Privacy Shield Principles). Please contact us to be directed to the relevant DPA contacts. As further explained in the Privacy Shield Principles, a binding arbitration option will also be made available to you in order to address residual complaints not resolved by any other means. CERVIS is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
