EU—U.S. PRIVACY SHIELD
In connection with EMVCo’s processing of personal data that related to individuals in the European Union (“EU Data”), EMVCo adheres to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework Principles issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce (the “Principles”). Please refer to our Privacy Shield certification for more details. For more information about the Principles, please visit the Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield Website.
If you have a complaint or dispute regarding our adherence to the Principles, please first submit your complaint to us to the point of contact listed in the “Contact Us” section below. If EMVCo cannot resolve your complaint, you may submit your complaint free of charge to JAMS, which is an independent dispute resolution provider based in the U.S. Under certain conditions specified by the Principles, you may also be able to invoke binding arbitration to resolve your complaint not resolved by other means.
EMVCo is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. If EMVCo shares EU Data with a third-party service provider that processes the data solely on EMVCo’s behalf, then EMVCo may be held liable for that third party’s processing of EU Data in violation of the Principles, unless EMVCo can prove that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage. Please refer to the remainder of this policy for information about our collection, use and disclosure practices.
