CultureFactors Inc. Privacy Policy

Overview

Your privacy is important to CultureFactors. This Privacy Policy is designed to you help you understand how we gather and use any personal information that is provided to us, as well as with whom that information is shared. This policy is applicable to our public website (www.culturefactors.com) as well as to any information collected from you and your employer via our surveys, job tests, assessments, questionnaires, and simulations.

Commitment to Privacy Shield, Enforcement, & Recourse

CultureFactors complies 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 information from European Union member countries and Switzerland transferred to the United States pursuant to the Privacy Shield. CultureFactors 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 privacy 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 www.privacyshield.gov

In compliance with Privacy Shield principles, CultureFactors commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection and use of your personal information transferred to the United States pursuant to the Privacy Shield. Individuals from the European Union or Switzerland with Privacy Shield inquires or complaints should first contact CultureFactors.

If your concerns are not resolved through our internal processes, CultureFactors has further committed to cooperate with the European Union Data Protection Authorities and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner to address unresolved complaints, including for issues involving human resources data.

If your complaint is not resolved through these channels, under certain limited circumstances, you may be able to invoke binding arbitration through a privacy shield arbitration panel. See Privacy Shield Annex 1 at https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction for more information.

CultureFactors is subject to the authority of the Federal Trade Commission.
