U.S. Safe Harbor Policy

Introduction
This policy outlines Information Technology Consulting Company’s general policy and practices in implementing the Safe Harbor Principles. The Safe Harbor Principles, in short, are a set of seven privacy principles and fifteen frequently asked questions and answers (FAQs) which outline a “safe harbor” framework developed by the United States Department of Commerce, in consultation with the European Commission and Switzerland.
Information Technology Consulting Company (“ITC2”) complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S. Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. ITC2 has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access and enforcement. If there is any conflict between provisions in this policy and those in the Safe Harbor Principles, the provisions in the Safe Harbor Principles will govern. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program please visit http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/.

Scope
This policy applies to all personal information that ITC2 handles, including contact information that is gathered before and during the provisioning of customer solutions and also during on-going support of these solutions.

Definitions
For purposes of this policy, "personal information" means information that (i) is transferred to ITC2, including any such information transferred from the European Union or Switzerland to the United States; (ii) is recorded in any form; (iii) is about, or pertains to, a specific individual; and (iv) can be linked to that individual. "Personal information" does not include information that pertains to a specific individual, but from which that individual could not reasonably be identified.
Protected health information ("PHI") is individually identifiable health information maintained or transmitted in any form that is created or received by a health care provider and relates to past, present or future health information of an individual.

Notice
In the course of serving its customers, ITC2 acquires, stores and transmits customer contact information that may contain personal information. Personal information - such as the customer's name, address, telephone number, electronic mail address and credit card data - is provided to ITC2 by its customers in order to establish service. Where ITC2 collects personal information directly from the individuals, it will inform them about the purposes for which it collects and uses personal information about them, and the choices and means ITC2 offers customers for limiting the use and disclosure of personal information. 
ITC2 may forward specific customer data including personal information to necessary third party providers, but only in conjunction with providing contracted services. From time to time ITC2 may provide customers information regarding their current or upcoming products via email, telephone calls or direct mailings. Customers may opt out of these marketing emails by contacting ITC2.

Choice
Individuals may opt out of having their personal information (a) disclosed to a third party that is not a permitted transferee (as defined below) (a "non-transferee third party") or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual such as receiving marketing information by contacting ITC2. Customers may not, however, opt out of receiving information from ITC2 which is essential for maintaining or updating customers' accounts or system information.

Disclosures and Transfers
ITC2 does not disclose an individual's personal information to third parties except when:

  • ITC2 has the individual's permission to make the disclosure; 
  • the disclosure is required by law or mandatory professional standards;
  • the disclosure is reasonably related to the sale or other disposition of all or part of ITC2’s business;
  • the information in question is publicly available;
  • the disclosure is reasonably necessary for the establishment of legal claims; or
  • the disclosure is to another division of ITC2, to an affiliate of ITC2, or to persons or entities providing services on ITC2’s or the individual's behalf (each a "permitted transferee"), consistent with the purpose for which the information was obtained, if the permitted transferee, with respect to the information in question (a) is subject to law providing at least the same level of privacy protection as the Safe Harbor Principles; (b) has agreed in writing to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as the Safe Harbor Principles; or (c) subscribes to the Safe Harbor Principles. 

Permitted transfers of information include the transfer of data from one jurisdiction to another, including transfers to and from the United States of America.

Security
ITC2 protects the confidentiality of its customers' personal contact and account information. To secure the information collected online, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure only appropriate use of information that is collected from customers, ITC2 has implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. Further, ITC2 requires that employees keep customer information confidential. ITC2 cautions its customers and website visitors that no medium of communication, including the Internet, is entirely secure.

Data Integrity
ITC2 processes personal information only in ways compatible with the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for such purposes, ITC2 takes reasonable steps to ensure that data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.

Enforcement
ITC2 is committed to ensuring all customer personal information is handled in a manner consistent with the purpose for which the information was obtained. If a customer has inquiries or complaints about how their personal information is handled, please send an email to itc2administrator@itc2.net. We will provide answers or begin investigations as necessary.

Amendment
ITC2 may amend this policy from time to time by posting a revised policy on this website, or a similar website that replaces this website. If ITC2 amends the policy, the new policy will apply to personal information previously collected only insofar as the rights of the individuals affected are not reduced. So long as ITC2 adheres to the Safe Harbor Principles, we will not amend our policy in a manner inconsistent with the Safe Harbor Principles.

Contact Information
If a customer has inquiries or complaints about how their personal information is handled, please send an email to itc2administrator@itc2.net. We will provide answers or begin investigations as necessary.
For more information about the Safe Harbor Principles, please visit the U.S. Department of Commerce's Website at http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/index.asp.

HIPAA Policy
While its functions and services do not involve the use or disclosure of protected health information ("PHI") ITC2’s goal is to provide the highest level of service and will safeguard any PHI it may receive and will work with our customers and business partners to help them meet the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") directives for any PHI we may receive in connection with our service.

Other Privacy Policies
ITC2 is committed to adhering to the Safe Harbor Principles for all personal information within the scope of the Safe Harbor Principles. For customer information that does not fall within the scope of the Safe Harbor Principles, the general privacy policy (as amended from time to time, the "Privacy Policy") set forth at Privacy Statement Terms and conditions applies.‚Äč
