- Accountability for Onward Transfer
In the event SEE Forge transfers Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy to a third party acting as a controller, SEE Forge will do so consistent with any notice
provided to Data Owners and any consent they have given, and only if the third party has given us contractual assurances that it will:
(i) process the Personal Data for limited and specified purposes consistent with any consent provided by the Data Owners,
(ii) provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles and notify SEE Forge if it makes a determination that they cannot do so,
(iii) cease processing of the Personal Data or take other reasonable and appropriate steps to remediate if they make such a determination.
If SEE Forge has knowledge that a third party acting as a controller is processing Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy in a way that is contrary to the Privacy Shield Principles, SEE Forge will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop such processing.
Employment-related operational needs with respect to personal data transferred under the Privacy Shield for activities such as the booking of a flight, hotel room, or insurance coverage, transfers of personal data of a small number of employees can take place to controllers without application of the Access Principle or entering into a contract with the third-party controller, provided that the Privacy Shield organization has complied with the Notice and Choice Principles.
With respect to SEE Forge Partners, we will transfer only the Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy needed for a Partner to deliver to its customers the SEE Forge product or service. Furthermore, SEE Forge will:
(i) permit the Partner to process such Personal Data only for limited and specified purposes,
(ii) require the Partner to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles,
(iii) take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that the Partner effectively processes the Personal Data transferred in a manner consistent with SEE Forge obligations under the Privacy Shield Principles,
(iv) require the Partner to notify SEE Forge if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles.
Upon receiving notice from a Partner that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles, SEE Forge will take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing.
SEE Forge remains liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if a Partner processes Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, except where SEE Forge is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
SEE Forge takes reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. This is done while taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Data.
