U.S—E.U. Privacy Shield
Icertis and its controlled U.S. subsidiaries (Icertis) comply with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States. Icertis has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.
Icertis’s participation in the Privacy Shield applies to all personal data that is subject to the Icertis Privacy Statement and is received from the European Union and the European Economic Area. Icertis will comply with the Privacy Shield Principles in respect of such personal data.
Icertis’s 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, Icertis 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 Icertis 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 by using the information provided on the Contact Us page. For any complaints that cannot be resolved with Icertis directly, Icertis has chosen to use JAMS as the recourse mechanism (as further described in the Privacy Shield Principles). 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. Icertis is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
