Privacy Shield Policy
Pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, EU individuals have the right to obtain our confirmation of whether we maintain personal information relating to you in the United States. Upon request, we will provide you with access to the personal information that we hold about you. You may also correct, amend, or delete the personal information we hold about you. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data transferred to the United States under Privacy Shield, should direct their query through our contact form https://www.unicon.net/contact-us with the Subject: Privacy Shield. If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
We will provide an individual opt-out choice, or opt-in for sensitive data, before we share your 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 request to limit the use and disclosure of your personal information, please submit a written request through our contact form https://www.unicon.net/contact-us with the Subject: Privacy Shield.
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.
Unicon’s accountability for personal data that it receives in the United States under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, Unicon remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Unicon proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Unicon commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. European Union individuals with Privacy Shield inquiries or complaints should first contact The Unicon Privacy Program:
Unicon Privacy Officer
1760 East Pecos Road
Gilbert, Arizona 85295
Additionally, you can contact us via this brief form (https://www.unicon.net/about/contact).
Unicon 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 addressed to your satisfaction, please visit www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers for more information and to file a complaint. This service is provided to you free of charge.
If your Privacy Shield complaint cannot be resolved through the above channels, you may, under certain conditions, 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.
The Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction over Unicon’s compliance with the Privacy Shield.
