GEGO notifies Employees and Consumers about its privacy practices, including the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Data, the types of Personal Data GEGO collects, the types of third parties to which GEGO discloses the Personal Data and the purposes for doing so, the rights and choices Employees and Consumers have for limiting the use and disclosure of their Personal Data, and how to contact GEGO about its practices concerning Personal Data. Information regarding GEGO’s Employee Personal Data and Consumer Data practices is contained in this Policy and in the other Privacy Policies available at www.GEGO.io. Additional information may be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Relevant information also may be found in notices pertaining to specific data processing activities.
GEGO generally offers Employees and Consumers the opportunity to choose whether their Personal Data may be (a) disclosed to third-party Controllers or (b) used for a purpose that is materially different from the purposes for which the information was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the relevant Employee or Consumer. To the extent required by the Privacy Shield Principles, GEGO obtains opt-in consent for certain uses and disclosures of Sensitive Data. Unless GEGO offers Employees or Consumers an appropriate choice, the company uses Personal Data only for purposes that are materially the same as those indicated in this Policy and the other Privacy Policies referred to herein. To exercise their choices, Employees and Consumers may contact GEGO as indicated in this Policy or the other Privacy Policies. To the extent and for the period necessary to avoid prejudicing the ability of the company in making promotions, appointments, or other similar employment decisions, GEGO is not required to offer notice or choice to Employees or Consumers.
GEGO may share Employee Personal Data and Consumer Personal Data with its affiliates and subsidiaries. GEGO may disclose Employee Personal Data and Consumer Personal Data without offering an opportunity to opt out, and may be required to disclose the Personal Data, (c) to third-party Processors the company has retained to perform services on its behalf and pursuant to its instructions, (d) if it is required to do so by law or legal process, or (e) in response to lawful requests from public authorities, including to meet national security, public interest or law enforcement requirements. GEGO also reserves the right to transfer Personal Data in the event of an audit or if the company sells or transfers all or a portion of its business or assets (including in the event of a merger, acquisition, joint venture, reorganization, dissolution or liquidation).
- Accountability for Onward Transfer of Personal Data
This Policy and the other Privacy Policies referred to herein describe GEGO’s sharing of Personal Data.
Except as permitted or required by applicable law, GEGO provides Employees and Consumers with an opportunity to opt out of sharing their Personal Data with third-party Controllers. GEGO requires third-party Controllers to whom it discloses Personal Data to contractually agree to (a) only process the Personal Data for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by the relevant Employee or Consumer, (b) provide the same level of protection for Personal Data as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles, and (c) notify GEGO and cease processing Personal Data (or take other reasonable and appropriate remedial steps) if the third-party Controller determines that it cannot meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles. GEGO is not required to enter into a contract to transfer Personal Data to certain third-party Controllers for occasional employment-related operational needs of the company, such as booking flights or hotel rooms or handling insurance coverage.
With respect to transfers of Employee Personal Data and Consumer Personal Data to third-party Processors, GEGO (d) enters into a contract with each relevant Processor, (e) transfers Personal Data to each such Processor only for limited and specified purposes, (f) ascertains that the Processor is obligated to provide the Personal Data with at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles, (g) takes reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that the Processor effectively processes the Personal Data in a manner consistent with GEGO’s obligations under the Privacy Shield Principles, (h) requires the Processor to notify GEGO if the Processor determines that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles, (i) upon notice, including under (h) above, takes reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing of the Personal Data by the Processor, and (vii) provides a summary or representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of the Processor contract to the Department of Commerce, upon request. GEGO remains liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if the company’s third-party Processor onward transfer recipients process the relevant Personal Data in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, unless GEGO proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
GEGO takes reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Employee Personal Data and Consumer Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Data.
VIII. Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
GEGO limits the Employee Personal Data and Consumer Personal Data it processes to that which is relevant for the purposes of the particular processing. GEGO does not process Employee Personal Data or Consumer Personal Data in ways that are incompatible with the purposes for which the information was collected or subsequently authorized by the relevant Employee or Consumer. In addition, to the extent necessary for these purposes, GEGO takes reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Data the company processes is (a) reliable for its intended use, and (b) accurate, complete and current. In this regard, GEGO relies on its Employees and Consumers to update and correct Personal Data to the extent necessary for the purposes for which the information was collected or subsequently authorized by the Employees or Consumers. Employees and Consumers may contact GEGO as indicated in this Policy to request that GEGO update or correct relevant Personal Data.
Subject to applicable law, GEGO retains Employee Personal Data and Consumer Personal Data in a form that identifies or renders identifiable the relevant Employee or Consumer only for as long as it serves a purpose that is compatible with the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected or subsequently authorized by the Employee or Consumer.
Employees and Consumers generally have the right to access their Personal Data. Accordingly, where appropriate, GEGO provides Employees and Consumers with reasonable access to the Personal Data GEGO maintains about them. GEGO also provides a reasonable opportunity for Employees and Consumers to correct, amend or delete the information where it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles, as appropriate. GEGO may limit or deny access to Personal Data where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the Employee’s privacy or Consumer’s privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than the Employee or the Consumer would be violated.
Employees and Consumers may request access to their Personal Data by contacting GEGO as indicated in this Policy.
- Recourse, Enforcement and Liability
GEGO has mechanisms in place designed to effect compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles. GEGO conducts an annual self-assessment of its Employee and Consumer Personal Data practices to verify that the attestations and assertions GEGO makes about its Privacy Shield privacy practices are true and that GEGO’s privacy practices have been implemented as represented and in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles.
- Employee Recourse: Employees may file a complaint concerning GEGO’s processing of their Personal Data. GEGO will take steps to remedy issues arising out of its alleged failure to comply with the Privacy Shield Principles. Employees may contact GEGO as specified below about complaints regarding GEGO’s Personal Data practices.
If an Employee’s complaint cannot be resolved through GEGO’s internal processes, GEGO will cooperate with the panel of EU data protection authorities established pursuant to the Privacy Shield to address relevant Employee complaints and provide Employees with appropriate recourse free of charge. GEGO also is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
- Consumer Recourse: Consumers may file a complaint concerning GEGO’s processing of their Personal Data. GEGO will take steps to remedy issues arising out of its alleged failure to comply with the Privacy Shield Principles.
