ATPCO PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
We may create anonymous data records from personal data by excluding information that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We reserve the right to use anonymous data for any purpose and disclose anonymous data to third parties in our sole discretion. “Anonymous data” means data that does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons and that is not associated with or linked to personal data.
We ask that you not send us, and you do not disclose, any sensitive personal data (e.g., social security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background or trade union membership) on or through the services or otherwise to us.
Participation in the Privacy Shield Framework
As described in the Privacy Shield Principles, ATPCO is accountable for personal data that it receives and subsequently transfers to third parties. If third parties that process personal data on our behalf do so in a manner that does not comply with the Privacy Shield Principles, we are accountable, unless we prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
How to file a complaint regarding your Personal Data
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, ATPCO commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal data. European Union individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact ATPCO at: .
Dispute Resolution Process
ATPCO has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to JAMS, a EU-US Privacy Shield Dispute Resolution service. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not resolved your complaint, please contact or visit JAMS at for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.
Individuals have the option, under certain circumstances, to invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance not resolved by any other Privacy Shield mechanisms. The procedure for invoking the binding arbitration process is accessible here:

What is Personal Data?
We may store and process your data outside the EEA. The personal data that we collect and process may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the EEA.
