Innovative strongly supports and at all times endeavors to fully comply with the Seven Principles of the Safe Harbor Framework relating to The European Commission’s Directive on Data Protection, as defined by the U.S. Department of Commerce, in consultation with the European Commission.
Principle 1: Notice
Following is our disclosure of how Innovative collects and uses personal information; any third parties to which we may disclose that information; how you can access your information and restrict our use of it; and how to contact us with any questions or complaints about how we use your information.
Any personal information sent to us by our clients is used exclusively for the purposes and services for which we contracted. We do not share, transmit, rent or sell that information to any other parties.
We may collect personal information such as name, title, firm, address, e-mail address, phone number and survey results from individuals who have requested information from us or expressed interest in our products and services. You may provide this information to us electronically, over the Internet, physically or through a third party. Your personal information will be used by Innovative exclusively for the purpose of providing and improving service to you, or informing you of additional products and services which we think will be of interest to you.
Other information gathered through this site is purely statistical, such as what Web pages are visited most often. This information is useful to Innovative and enables us not only to improve and upgrade our website but also to refine our product lines and marketing. This information is anonymous in nature.
We do not collect sensitive information (e.g., personal information specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information specifying the sex life of the individual).
Questions or complaints may be sent to: email@example.com.
Principle 2: Choice
If you request information from us, you will be given the choice at that time to opt out of receiving future communications from us on information, products, or services that may be of interest to you.
If you have provided us with your personal information in the past, and you do not wish to receive further communications of information, products, or services from us, you can opt out by clicking here and pressing "send." This is an automated process and must be performed from the email account that is receiving the unwanted emails. Please understand that it may take up to 10 days for your request to be processed.
If you provide personal information to us as part of a service we provide to you or your organization, we do not share, transmit, rent or sell that information to any third parties.
Principle 3: Onward Transfer (Transfers to Third Parties)
Other than as described below, customer information provided to us as part of our business service is not disclosed, transmitted, shared, rented or sold to any third parties.
If you provide us with personal information in order to receive information from us, we do not disclose, transmit or share that information with any third parties, except third parties we have retained to assist us and who are working under our instructions, and then only for the purpose of alerting you to information, products, and services that may be of interest to you. Any third party with whom we may share personal information for these purposes must demonstrate that they also subscribe to the safe harbor principles or agree in writing that they provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the safe harbor principles.
Innovative does not disclose, rent or sell personal information to any outside or third party organization for their commercial use.
Principle 4: Access
You are welcome to contact Innovative at any time to review the personal information about you that we hold. You may correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate. To access this information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Principle 5: Security
Innovative employs reasonable precautions within our company — including physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards — designed to help secure the privacy of all personal information we retain, and protect it from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
Innovative does not use “cookies,” files that are transferred to the user's hard drive, which then transmit information about the user's Internet activities.
Unfortunately, no security system, or system of transmitting data over the Internet, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of the foregoing, while we undertake commercially reasonable efforts to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and our servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the Site. You provide all such information entirely at your own risk.
Principle 6: Data integrity
As a recognized leader in data quality, Innovative utilizes our world-class data quality solutions to help ensure that the personal information we have is accurate, complete, current and relevant for the purposes for which it is to be used.
Principle 7: Enforcement
Any questions or complaints regarding Innovative’s handling of personal information can be addressed to the Safe Harbor Compliance Committee at email@example.com.
Any complaints or disputes that are not satisfactorily resolved by the Safe Harbor Compliance Committee can be referred to the European Data Protection Authorities for investigation and resolution.
