EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss- US Privacy Shield

This privacy policy and Bedrock Data comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield Principles (the “Principles”) as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, disclosure, transfer and retention of Personal Data from the European Union.  Bedrock Data commits to subject to the Principles all Personal Data received from the EU in reliance on the Privacy Shield.

By adhering to the Privacy Shield Principles, Bedrock Data agrees to be subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

As a Privacy Shield Organization, Bedrock Data has responsibility for the processing of Personal Information it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf.  Bedrock Data shall remain liable under the Principles if its agent processes such Personal Information in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Bedrock Data proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

Bedrock Data also complies with the Swiss – US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from Switzerland to the United States. Bedrock Data has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.

Your Personal Information which we processed prior to your request may not be deleted from our Site system records but will be blocked from further processing without your permission.  A request to revoke consent or block processing of your Personal Information may not apply to information collected by cookies or used internally to recognize you and/or facilitate your visits to the Site, or information we may keep to comply with legal requirements. 

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

When you visit the Site, we use session “cookies,” a piece of information stored on your computer temporarily and deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed, to allow us to uniquely identify your browser while you are browsing or interacting with the Site.  Session cookies also help us confirm your identity and are required in order to log into your account.  If you wish to prevent cookies from being used as you navigate our Site, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies and/or indicate when a cookie is being sent.

Users who disable their web browsers’ ability to accept cookies will be able to browse the Site, but will not be able to access or take advantage of all of the features and services on the Site.  We therefore recommend you do not block or disable these cookies.  To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been sent and how to manage, as well as delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.  

As you navigate the Bedrock Data Website, Bedrock Data may also collect information through the use of commonly used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons (“Web Site Navigational Information”). Web Site Navigational Information includes standard information from your Web browser (such as browser type and browser language), your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the actions you take on the Bedrock Data Websites (such as the Web pages viewed and the links clicked).

Protection of Your Information

We will take appropriate physical, technical and organizational safeguards to protect Personal Information from theft, other loss, misuse, and any unauthorized access, copying, collection, use, disclosure, alteration or destruction. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We retain Personal Information as long as needed to provide the Services and accomplish our business purposes. We will retain and use Personal Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.  

Information Sharing and Disclosure

We disclose the Personal Information of our users to third party vendors who help us operate the Site.  These third parties may be based in locations outside the EU/EEA. These third parties are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality of your Personal Information consistent with the terms of this Policy and to comply with the applicable data protection laws.  

We will disclose your information in response to valid legal process, for example, in response to a court order, a subpoena or other legal request for information, and/or to comply with applicable legal and regulatory reporting requirements.  We also may disclose your information where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our products and/or services and with applicable laws, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements.  In addition, we may transfer your information to an entity or individual that acquires, buys, or merges with Bedrock Data, or our other business units.

Bedrock Data is required to disclose Personal Information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

In the events above, you will be notified via email of such disclosure, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information, in accordance with applicable law.

Business Partners 

Bedrock Data partners with other companies to jointly offer products or services. You may opt in to share your Personal Information with our business partners if you choose to purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service.  If you do not wish for your information to be shared in this manner, you may choose not to purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service.

Third Party Sites and Links / Payment Processing

Our Site may contain links to other websites that are independent, are not owned or operated by us, are not covered by this Privacy Policy and which may incorporate Third Party Information.  For example, when you purchase a subscription, you are immediately directed away from the Site to the website of our third party payment processor which collects your Personal Data and billing information in order to process your transaction.     The collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information by our third party payment processor or any third party will be covered by the third party’s privacy policy and not this Privacy Policy.  

We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of other websites, even if they are linked to our Site.  We also have no responsibility or liability for any transactions between you and any third party, even if linked to our Site.

International or Cross-Border Transfer of Your Personal Information and Your Express Agreement

Given that the Internet operates in a global environment and that transfer of your data is necessary to provide you with requested Services, to provide updates, and to respond to your inquiries, using the Internet to collect and process Personal Information necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international, or cross-border, basis.  By providing Personal Information and/or by accessing the Site or Services, you acknowledge and expressly consent to our processing and disclosure of your Personal Information in this way.  The Personal Information of users who are located outside the U.S. may be transferred outside of each eligible country to the U.S., where our servers are located and where it will be processed and stored on servers in the U.S.  Although the Privacy Shield Principles and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Principles have been recognized as adequate, the U.S. has not been recognized as providing an adequate level of protection according to EU data protection requirements, but we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that users’ Personal Information is treated securely in respect of such transfer and as described in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with the Principles.  By providing Personal Information or accessing the Site or Services, you expressly and unambiguously agree to such transfer, processing, storage and disclosure in countries outside the EU and Switzerland.

 

Social Media Features

Our Site includes features from third party social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn that run on our Site.  Please note that our Site is not sponsored or endorsed by any of these social media sites, which are trademarked and owned by third parties and not by us.  These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to these features. Your interactions with these features would be governed by the privacy policy and other policies of the companies providing them.

Children

Our site is directed to individuals who are the age of majority or older in their jurisdiction.  We do not knowingly collect information from children.  If you believe your child has provided information to the Site please contact us using the information provided below. 

Your California Privacy Rights; California Do Not Track Disclosures

We currently do not honor Do Not Track signals.
