Lytics may be required to disclose an individual’s personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Where Lytics collects personal information directly from individuals in the EU, it will inform them about the purposes for which it collects and uses personal information about them, the types of non–agent third parties to which Lytics discloses that information, the choices and means, if any, Lytics offers individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of personal information about them, and how to contact Lytics. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide personal information to Lytics, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Lytics uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.
Where Lytics receives personal information from its subsidiaries, affiliates or other entities in the E, it will use and disclose such information in accordance with the notices provided by such entities and the choices made by the individuals to whom such personal information relates.
Lytics will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether their personal information is (a) to be disclosed to a non-agent third party, or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
For sensitive personal information, Lytics will give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively and explicitly (opt-in) consent to the disclosure of the information to a non-agent third party or the use of the information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
Lytics will provide individuals with reasonable mechanisms to exercise their choices. Please contact [email protected] for more information.
Lytics will use personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Lytics will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
Lytics will obtain assurances from its agents that they will safeguard personal information consistently with this Policy. Examples of appropriate assurances that may be provided by agents include: a contract obligating the agent to provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the relevant Privacy Principles, certification by an agent, or being subject to another European Commission or Swiss FDPIC adequacy finding (e.g., companies located in Canada). Where Lytics has knowledge that an agent is using or disclosing personal information in a manner contrary to this Policy, Lytics will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.
In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU individuals received pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield, Lytics is potentially liable.
Lytics provides individuals the right to access personal information that it holds about them. In addition, Lytics will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct his query [email protected] If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
Lytics will take reasonable precautions to protect personal information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
Lytics will conduct compliance audits of its relevant privacy practices to verify adherence to this Policy. Any employee that Lytics determines is in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
Adherence by Lytics to these privacy principles may be limited (a) to the extent required to respond to a legal or ethical obligation; (b) to the extent necessary to meet national security, public interest or law enforcement obligations; and (c) to the extent expressly permitted by an applicable law, rule or regulation.
