Privacy Principles

Notice, Choice & Access

The Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction over Globegistics’ compliance with the Privacy.

Globegistics does not own or control any of the Personal Information it Processes on behalf of its’ Clients. All such information is owned and controlled by the respective Client. Processes performed by Globegistics on behalf of its Clients are pursuant to the instructions of the applicable Client. Globegistics therefore relies on its Clients to provide notices that clearly and conspicuously describe (i) the types of Personal Information that are collected about such Citizens; (ii) the purposes for which such information is collected; (iii) and the types of third parties to which such information is disclosed – including Processors such as Globegistics – and the related purposes.

Where Globegistics receives Personal Information from its Clients, Globegistics and its Agents will endeavor to use such information in accordance with the notices provided by such Clients and the choices made by the Citizens to whom such Personal Information relates. In the event Clients’ customers seek to exercise their opportunity to opt-out of future Client-originated communications by contacting Globegistics, Globegistics will endeavor to timely communicate that choice to its Clients.

Accountability for Onward Transfer

Globegistics will endeavor to only transfer Personal Information to another third party/Agent where such third party has given assurances that it provides at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles and this Statement and will notify Globegistics if it makes a determination it can no longer meet this obligation. Where Globegistics has knowledge that an Agent is using or sharing Personal Information in a way that is contrary to the Privacy Shield Principles and/or this Statement, Globegistics will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop such Processing. With respect to onward transfers to third parties/Agents, Privacy Shield requires that, to the extent it is responsible for the event, Globegistics shall remain liable should its Agents Process Personal Information in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles.

Security

Globegistics endeavors to take reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical and physical precautions designed to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, regardless of whether such Personal Information is in electronic or tangible, hard copy form.

Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation

Globegistics endeavors only to Process Personal Information that is relevant to the Services it provides, and only for purposes compatible with those for which the Personal Information was collected. Globegistics depends on its Clients to take reasonable steps to ensure that their customers’ Personal Information is reliable, accurate, complete and current.

Recourse, Enforcement and Liability

Globegistics has implemented mechanisms to verify its ongoing compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles and this Statement. Any party that violates the Privacy Principles and/or this Statement will be subject to disciplinary procedures in accordance with Globegistics’ disciplinary procedures.
