“Personal Information” means any information that may be used, either alone or in combination with other information, to personally identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a personal profile, an email address or other contact information.
Lextegrity is responsible for the processing of personal data it receives, under each Privacy Shield Framework, and subsequently transfer to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. Lextegrity complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction over Lextegrity’s compliance with the Privacy Shield. Lextegrity may be required to disclose Personal Information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.
Lextegrity has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Privacy Shield Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, the BBB EU PRIVACY SHIELD, operated by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit http://www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers for more information and to file a complaint.
The services of BBB EU Privacy Shield are provided at no cost to you. If neither Lextegrity nor BBB EU Privacy Shield resolves your complaint, you may have the possibility to engage in binding arbitration through the Privacy Shield Panel.
Lextegrity also commits to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner, and comply with the advice given by the panel and Commissioner, with regard to human resources data transferred from the EU and Switzerland in the context of the employment relationship.
Receipt and Collection of Information: We occasionally collect Personal Information from users. In each case, you will only be required to provide the Personal Information that we need in order to be able to provide the services you have requested. You may be entitled under data protection laws to access and review the Personal Information that we hold on you, if you provide the necessary consent and background information and pay any mandated fee. All such communications regarding access to your personal data should be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Such enquiries should clearly be marked as data protection queries and as being time sensitive.

Use of Your Personal Information: Lextegrity collects and uses your Personal Information to deliver the Service or to carry out the transactions you have requested. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the Sites or Service easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.
We also use your Personal Information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. Some Lextegrity services may send periodic member letters that are considered part of the Service. Additional Lextegrity services allow for the communication between you and other members of your organization or its agents. We may also contact you to inform you of other products or services available from Lextegrity and its affiliates.
We may disclose your Personal Information or any information you submitted if we have a good faith belief that disclosure of such information is helpful or reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; (ii) enforce any applicable terms of service, including investigations of potential violations thereof; (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud or security issues; or (iv) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Lextegrity, our users, yourself or the public. We also 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.
Sharing of Your Personal Information: Lextegrity will not sell, rent or lease your Personal Information to others. Lextegrity shares Personal Information with companies working on our behalf and Lextegrity-owned business entities. Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your Personal Information to third parties for their own marketing purposes unless you have provided consent.
Some Lextegrity services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such services, both Lextegrity and the other company may receive information collected as part of the co-branded services.
In some cases, Lextegrity uses contractors to collect, use, analyze and otherwise process information on its behalf. It is Lextegrity’s practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with Lextegrity’s policies. Lextegrity may also allow carefully selected Lextegrity partners to participate in limited marketing campaigns solely to promote Lextegrity’s products and services to you.
If you request something from a Lextegrity Service (for example, a product or service, a callback, or specific marketing materials), we will use the information you provide to fulfill your request. To help us do this, we may share information with others, such as Lextegrity’s business partners or financial institutions. As part of a transaction, we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the Personal Information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
We may access and/or disclose your Personal Information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on Lextegrity; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Lextegrity (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Lextegrity services or members of the public.
Your Choices: We will provide an individual opt-out or opt-in choice before we share their data with third parties other than our agents, or before we use it for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized. Lextegrity provides a number of ways for you to ‘opt-in’ or ‘opt-out’ of receiving additional information from us or having us provide your Personal Information to our partners. We may offer you these choices at the time you give us your information.
If you do not wish to continue receiving certain marketing materials (e.g., e-mail messages), you can opt-out of receiving these materials by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the materials. This option does not apply to communications primarily for the purpose of administering orders, contracts, support, product safety warnings, software updates, or other administrative and transactional notices.
Use of Anonymous Information. We may use Anonymous Information (as defined below), or disclose it to third party service providers, to provide and improve the Service. We may also disclose Anonymous Information (with or without compensation) to third parties, including advertisers and partners, for purposes including, but not limited to, targeting advertisements. “Anonymous Information” means information which does not enable identification of an individual user, such as aggregated information about use of the Service.
Opting Out. You may choose not to receive future promotional, advertising, or other Service-related notifications from us by changing the notification settings on your device. If you choose not to receive notifications, you may still use the Service but you may not receive, or may be unable to use, certain services that involve our interaction with you. If we ever were to engage in any onward transfers of your data with third parties for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized, we would provide you with an opt-out choice to limit the use and disclosure of your personal data.
Choice. At all times, you may choose whether or not to provide or disclose Personal Information. The notices that we provide on the Service in circumstances where we collect Personal Information should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you may still use the Service, but you may be unable to access certain programs and services that involve our interaction with you.
Access/Accuracy. To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, we wish to maintain accurate Personal Information. Lextegrity acknowledges that EU or Swiss individuals have the right to access the personal information/data that we maintain about them. An EU or Swiss individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct his query to email@example.com. If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe. Your email should include adequate details of your request.
Personal Information Collected by Our Customers: Lextegrity collects information under the direction of customers of our Service, as a processor, and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. Lextegrity may then transfer Personal Information to third parties that help us provide our Service to those customers, under service agreements between Lextegrity and the customer.
If you would like to access, correct, or delete such data, you should direct your request to the Lextegrity customer, the data controller. If our customer requests Lextegrity amend or remove data, we will respond within 30 days. We will otherwise retain Personal Information we process on behalf of our customers for as long as needed to provide the Service to our customer or to fulfill any other legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Links to Other Sites: The Service may contain links to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other third-party websites, and you visit them at your own risk.
Security: The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards, including the use of appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards, to protect the Personal Information submitted to us. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security or confidentiality. If you have any questions about security, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware that certain Personal Information and other information provided by you in connection with your use of the Service may be stored on your device (even if we do not collect that information). You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your device from unauthorized access.
Merger, Sale or Bankruptcy: If we are acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, or if we are subject to a bankruptcy or any comparable event, we reserve the right to transfer or assign Personal Information in connection therewith.
