(itelligence) respects individual privacy and values the confidence of its business partners, itelligence employees and other persons whose personal data becomes known to itelligence. This EU Data Privacy Policy (the Policy) sets forth the privacy principles (the Principles) that itelligence follows with respect to Personal Information transferred between the European Economic Area (which includes the member states of the European Union) and the United States. itelligence complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and has certified its adherence to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles that can be found under http://www.export.gov/safeharbor.

Notice. Where itelligence collects Personal Information directly from an individual, it will inform the individuals to whom the information pertains about the purposes of such collection and usage, how to contact us, the types of third parties with whom we share Personal Information (if applicable), and any ways that individuals may limit the use and sharing of such information. This notice will be provided when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information to itelligence or as soon thereafter as is practicable.

Choice. itelligence will offer an individual the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether Personal Information is (a) to be disclosed to a non-agent third party or (b) to be used for a purpose that is incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Individuals will be provided with clear and conspicuous, readily available, and affordable mechanisms to choose. For Sensitive Information, individuals will be given affirmative or explicit (opt in) choice if the information is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual through the exercise of opt in choice.

Onward Transfer.
itelligence will only transfer Personal Information to a non-agent third party (i) as permitted under the European Data Privacy Directive or (ii) consistent with the Notice and Choice Principles stated above. If itelligence discloses Personal Information to an agent third party, itelligence will either (i) ensure that the third party is subject to the safe harbor principles or (ii) require the third party by contract to provide the same level of protection as required by the safe harbor principles.
Security. itelligence will take reasonable precautions to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

Data Integrity.
