How We Protect and Store Personal Information

We take reasonable steps to help protect the security of your Personal Information. Despite our security safeguards, however, we cannot guarantee that Personal Information will be protected from interception, misappropriation, misuses or alteration, or that it will not be disclosed or access by accidental circumstances or by unauthorized actions. We use a variety of available security technologies and procedures to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, any Personal Information is stored on secure servers that are located in controlled facilities with limited logical access.  Data protection is achieved through the use of encryption protocols HTTPS, TLS1.2, and AES-256 (where available). We also require that our third party vendors follow these safeguards including adherence to SOC 2 or a similar compliance framework.

Privacy Shield

We comply with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (“Privacy Shield Principals”), as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Information transferred from the European Union or Switzerland, to the United States. We have certified to the Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles. If there is any conflict between the terms in this Privacy Notice and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Principals program, and to view our certification, please visit

We are responsible for the processing of Personal Information we receive, and under Privacy Shield Principals we may subsequently transfer that Personal Information to a third party acting as an agent or service provider on our behalf. We comply with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of Personal Information from the EU and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.

With respect to Personal Information received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Principals, we are subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose Personal Information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

We have incorporated the European Union Model Clauses into our standard data protection agreement used with service providers located in a third country. The European Union Model Clauses creates a contractual mechanism to meet the adequacy requirement which allows for transfer of personal data from the European Economic Area to a third country.

See the section below entitled “How You Can Contact Us about Privacy” if you have privacy concerns or a dispute.  If you have an unresolved privacy or information security concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, you may contact our U.S.-based independent recourse mechanism provider ICDR/AAA (free of charge) at
