Privacy Shield

If your personal information is transferred from the EEA or Switzerland to the US pursuant to the Privacy Shield, then the rights, remedies and protections set forth in this section apply to you. We comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data from the European Union member countries (including Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway) and Switzerland to the United States, respectively, pursuant to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield. Button has certified that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles with respect to such data. If there is any conflict between the policies in this Policy and data subject rights under the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification page, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.

With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, Buttonis subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Button commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information transferred to the United States pursuant to Privacy Shield. European Union and Swiss individuals with Privacy Shield inquiries or complaints should first contact us at privacy@usebutton.com with the subject line “Privacy Shield.”

Button 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 www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers for more information and to file a complaint. This service is provided free of charge to you.

If your Privacy Shield complaint cannot be resolved through the above channels, under certain conditions, you may invoke binding arbitration for some residual claims not resolved by other redress mechanisms. See Privacy Shield Annex 1 at https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction.

Onward Transfer to Third Parties under the Privacy Shield

Like many businesses, we hire other companies to perform certain business-related services. We may disclose personal information to certain types of third party companies but only to the extent needed to enable them to provide such services. The types of companies that may receive personal information and their functions are: hosting and storage services, billing/payment processors, and analytics and marketing providers. All such third parties function as our agents, performing services at our instruction and on our behalf pursuant to contracts which require they provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by this Policy and implemented by Button. We may also disclose personal information to our affiliates in order to support marketing, sale, and delivery of any services.

In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Button’s accountability for personal data that it receives under the Privacy Shield andsubsequently transfers to a third party is described in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, Button remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process the personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Button proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

Opt-In and Opt-Out to Certain Onward Transfers under the Privacy Shield

Individuals have the opportunity to opt-out of sharing of their personal 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. To limit the use and disclosure of your personal information, please submit a written request to privacy@usebutton.com with the subject line “Privacy Shield.”

We will not disclose your sensitive personal information to any third party without first obtaining your opt-in consent. In addition to any consent mechanisms on the Website, you may provide your consent by sending us an email at privacy@usebutton.com with the subject line “Privacy Shield.” In each instance, please allow us a reasonable time to process your response.

Your Privacy Shield Rights

Upon request to privacy@usebutton.com with the subject line “Privacy Shield,” we will provide you with confirmation as to whether we are processing your personal data pursuant to the Privacy Shield, and have such data communicated to you within a reasonable time. You have the right to access, correct, amend, or delete the personal data processed pursuant to the Privacy Shield where it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of our privacy disclosures to you. We may require payment of a non-excessive fee to defray our expenses in this regard. Please allow us a reasonable time to respond to your inquiries and requests.

Button commits to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and comply with the advice given by the panel with regard to human resources data transferred from the EU as applicable in the context of the employment relationship.

You have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your personal data with an appropriate data protection authority.

Retention of Personal Information under the Privacy Shield

We will retain the personal information processed pursuant to the Privacy Shield in a form that identifies you pursuant to our data retention periods in Retention above. We may continue processing such personal information for longer periods, but only for the time and to the extent such processing reasonably serves the purposes of archiving in the public interest, journalism, literature and art, scientific or historical research and statistical analysis, and subject to the protection of our privacy disclosures. After such time periods have expired, we may either delete your personal information or retain it in a form such that it does not identify you personally.

How We Protect Your Personal Information under the Privacy Shield
