PathMaker Group (“PMG”) is dedicated to complying with Safe Harbor Privacy Principles and the privacy laws of other sovereign governments throughout the globe. The following provides our statement regarding protection of privacy and the means by which we comply with Safe harbor.
Questions, comments or complaints should be directed in writing to Mister Keith Squires, President and CEO, PathMaker Group.
PathMaker Group, (“PMG”, “the company”, “we”, “us”,or “our”) respects individual privacy. We value the confidence that our customers, employees, consumers, business partners, and others place in us to protect their privacy. PMG adheres to the Safe Harbor Agreement concerning the transfer of personal data from the European Union or ‘Commonwealth’ to the United States of America. Accordingly, we follow the Safe Harbor Principles published by the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Principles”) with respect to all such data. This statement outlines our general policy and practices for implementing the Principles, including the types of information the company gathers, how we use it, and the choices affected individuals have regarding our use of, and their ability to correct, that information. This statement applies to all personal information we handle, including on-line (except as noted below), off-line, and manually processed data. For purposes of this statement, “personal information” means information that:
- is transferred from the European Union to the United States
- is recorded in any form
- is about, or pertains to, a specific individual or can be linked to that individual
Principles Protecting Individuals’ Privacy Notice and Choice
To the extent permitted by the Safe Harbor Agreement, we reserve the right to process personal information in the course of our internal business operation without the knowledge of individuals involved.
Where the company receives personal information from its subsidiaries, affiliates, or other entities in the EU, the company will use and disclose such information in accordance with the purposes for which it was originally collected, or in accordance with the notices provided by such entities. The company will provide notice and provide individuals with an opportunity to “opt out” if such personal information is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for which it was originally collected. For sensitive information, affirmative or explicit, the company will provide notice and individual choice will be given to “opt-in” if such sensitive information is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected.
We collect personal information from individuals only as permitted by the Principles or with the consent of the individual affected. Consent for personal information to be collected, used, and/or disclosed in certain ways may be required in order for an individual to obtain or use our services.
Disclosures and Transfers
PMG does not disclose an individual’s personal information to third parties, except when one or more of the following conditions is true:
- We have the individual’s permission to make the disclosure
- The disclosure is required by law or mandatory professional standards
- The disclosure is reasonably related to the sale or other disposition of all or part of our business
- The information in question is publicly available
- The disclosure is reasonably necessary for the establishment of legal claims; or
- The disclosure is to another PMG entity or to persons or entities providing services on our or the individual’s behalf (each a “transferee”), consistent with the purpose for which the information was obtained, if the transferee, with respect to the information in question:
- is subject to law providing an adequate level of privacy protection or
- has agreed in writing to provide an adequate level of privacy protection or
- subscribes to the Principles
Permitted transfers of information, either to third parties or within PMG, or between subsidiaries of PMG, include the transfer of data from one jurisdiction to another, including transfers to and from the United States of America. Because privacy laws vary from one jurisdiction to another, personal information may be transferred to a jurisdiction where the laws provide less or different protection than the jurisdiction in which the information originated.
Data Security, Integrity and Access
PMG employs various physical, electronic, and managerial measures, designed to provide personal information with reasonable protection from accidental loss or destruction, improper use, alteration, or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.
We process personal information only in ways compatible with the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for such purposes, we take reasonable steps to make sure that personal information is accurate, complete, current, and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use.
If an individual becomes aware that information we maintain about that individual is inaccurate, or if an individual would like to update or review his or her information, the individual may contact us using the contact information below. The individual will need to provide sufficient identifying information. We may request additional identifying information as a security precaution. In addition, we may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or expensive in the circumstances, or as otherwise permitted by the Safe Harbor Agreement. In some circumstances, we may charge a reasonable fee, where warranted, for access to personal information.
Information Subject to Other Policies
We are committed to following the Principles for all personal information within the scope of the Safe Harbor Agreement. However, certain information is subject to policies of the firm that may differ in some respects from the general policies set forth in this statement.
