Accu-Time Systems, Inc. (collectively, “ATS”, “we”, “our” or “us”) respect your privacy. This Privacy Shield Notice (“Notice”) describes our standards and procedures for handling Personal Information transferred from the European Union (“EU”) to the U.S. in accordance with ATS’s obligations under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.
ATS has subscribed to and will adhere to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework by adopting and implementing the Privacy Shield Principles (“Principles”). More information about the Privacy Shield can be found at https://www.privacyshield.gov. Our Privacy Shield certification can be found at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.
We obtain and process Personal Information from the EU in different capacities:
- As a data controller, we collect and process EU Personal Information either directly from you via our publicly available websites, including www.accu-time.com, or in connection with our customer, partner, employee, prospective employeeand vendor relationships.
- As an agent (as that term is used in the Principles), we obtain and process EU Personal Information on behalf of and under the instructions of our customers in connection with the time and attendance tracking services we provide. In that context, our customers are the data controllers or agents and the roles and responsibilities of the parties for the processing of Personal Information are defined in our agreements with them.
ATS commits to comply with the Principles with respect to all Personal Information received from the EU in reliance on the Privacy Shield.
Privacy Shield Principles
When providing our services, our customers choose the types of Personal Information we process and the purposes of the processing.
An individual may opt-out of such uses of their personal information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Accountability for Onward Transfer of Personal Information
ATS takes reasonable and appropriate precautions, considering the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Information, to help protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
- Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
You have reasonable access to your Personal Information that we collected as a data controller and you may request corrections, deletions, or additions where the Personal Information is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of the Principles. We may limit or deny access to such Personal Information where providing such access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances, or as otherwise permitted by the Principles. You may request access to your Personal Information by contacting us as described below.
- Recourse, Enforcement and Liability
ATS has established procedures to periodically verify implementation of and compliance with the Principles. ATS conducts self-assessments of its practices regarding Personal Information intended to verify that the assertions ATS makes about its practices are true and that such practices have been implemented as represented.
ATS is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”). In certain situations, ATS may be required to disclose Personal Information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Individuals may file a complaint with us at email@example.com, if they have any complaints with ATS’s processing of their Personal Information under the Privacy Shield Program. If the dispute is unable to be resolved through ATS’s internal processes, ATS offers a variety of options for the individual to resolve their dispute. If the dispute involves data collected in the context of an EU resident’s employment relationship, we will cooperate with competent EU data protection or labor authorities and comply with the advice of such authorities. If those authorities determine that we did not comply with this policy, we will take appropriate steps to address any adverse effects and to promote future compliance. If the dispute involves other types of data, individuals may file a claim with Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS) here: https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield. Under certain circumstances, an individual may invoke binding arbitration. Please see the Privacy Shield website: https://www.privacyshield.gov/Program-Overview for more information on conditions giving rise to binding arbitration.
This Notice may be amended consistent with the requirements of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. When we update this Notice, we will also revise the "Last Updated" date at the bottom of this document.
