Data Privacy Framework Principles
Knowmadics will apply the following DPF Principles to Personal Data transferred from the European Union and its Member States, the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom and/or Switzerland to the United States.
Knowmadics notifies Data Subjects covered by this DPF Principles about its practices regarding Personal Data received by Knowmadics in the U.S. from the European Union and its Member States, the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom and/or Switzerland in reliance on the respective DPF Principles, including the types of Personal Data it collects about them, the purposes for which it collects and processes Personal Data, the types of third parties to which it discloses Personal Data and the purposes for which it does so, the rights of Data Subjects to access their Personal Data, the means for limiting its use and disclosure of Personal Data, how Knowmadics’ obligations under the DPF Principles are enforced, and how Data Subjects can contact Knowmadics with any inquiries or complaints.
In accordance with the DPF Principles, Knowmadics will offer Data Subjects an opportunity to choose whether to have their Personal Data used or disclosed, if the Personal data is to be disclosed to a third party, or used for a new purpose that is materially different than the purpose which the Personal Data was originally collected for or was subsequently authorized by the Data Subject.
Requests to opt out of such uses or disclosures of Personal Data should be sent to the Knowmadics Data Privacy office by email to email@example.com.
Accountability for Onward Transfer
- process the Personal Data for limited and specified purposes consistent with any consent provided by the Data Subjects,
- provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the DPF Principles and notify us if it makes a determination that it cannot do so; and
- cease processing of the Personal Data or take other reasonable and appropriate steps to remediate if it makes such a determination.
In the context of an onward transfer Knowmadics has responsibility for the processing of personal information it receives under the DPF Principles and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. Knowmadics shall remain liable under the DPF Principles if its agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the DPF Principles, unless the organization proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
Knowmadics takes reasonable steps to ensure that such Personal Data is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use. Knowmadics takes reasonable and appropriate measures to comply with the requirement under the DPF Principles to retain Personal Data only for as long as it serves a purpose of processing, which includes Knowmadics’ obligations to comply with professional standards, Knowmadics’ business purposes and unless a longer retention period is permitted by law, and it adheres to the DPF Principles as stated above for as long as it retains such Personal Data.
Knowmadics may also disclose Personal Data as necessary to defend itself in any legal proceedings and/or to assist and comply with lawful requests by public authorities, including national security or law enforcement requirements.
Knowmadics will cooperate with Data Subject’s reasonable requests to exercise their rights to access Personal data and to correct, amend, or delete Personal Data if it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation under the DPF Principles (except when the burden or expense of providing access, correction, amendment, or deletion would be disproportionate to the risks to the Data Subject’s privacy, or where the rights of persons other than the Data Subject would be violated). Requests for access, correction, amendment, or deletion should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
