Privacy Shield Commitment
Brand Indicators complies with the requirements of the U.S.-EU Privacy Shield Framework, as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Information from European Union member countries. Brand Indicators adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity and purpose limitation, access and recourse, enforcement and liability with respect to all Personal Information transferred from the EU to the US within the scope of its Privacy Shield certification.
Collecting Your Personal Information
The Personal Information collected through our offline forms will be used to operate the Site and to provide the service(s) or carry out the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized. Brand Indicators uses Personal Information including (i) data received from the EU, and (ii) data received from online, offline, and/or in connection with products and services primarily for: (1) enabling and providing its website(s), products, or services (as for any other purposes as may be further set forth in agreements between Brand Indicators and its customers, including acting as a data processor on behalf of its customers which act as data controllers); (2) customer service activities, including processing orders, providing technical support, and customizing, enhancing, upgrading and improving Brand Indicators websites and offerings; (3) sales and marketing activities and customer relationship management (including newsletters and notices); and (4) internal business processes and management, crime/fraud detection and prevention, security, protecting Brand Indicators legal rights, and compliance with governmental, legislative, and regulatory requirements
Without limiting the foregoing, in support of these uses Brand Indicators may use Personal Information to provide you with more effective customer service, to improve the Site and any related Brand Indicators products or services. We may use your Personal Information to provide you with important information about the product or service that you are using, including critical updates and notifications. Brand Indicators occasionally hires other companies, consultants and contractors to provide limited services on our behalf, such as Web site hosting, packaging, public relations, mailing, answering customer questions about products and services, and sending information about our products, special offers and other new services. We will only provide those companies the Personal Information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose. Brand Indicators may disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Brand Indicators or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Brand Indicators or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Brand Indicators employees or agents, users of Brand Indicators products or services, or members of the public. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
