Recent changes in privacy laws, particularly in the European Union (“EU”) with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), have caused us to review our policies and procedures for communicating with those living in the EU, and others whose “Personal Data” (defined below) may be subject to the GDPR, as we export data for processing within the EU, but primarily at the Advion headquarters, located in the United States. We have not significantly changed our practices and policies as many of the GDPR’s requirements are current best practices that we already adhere to, and apply to Data Subjects and individuals in all countries. We generally do not process special categories of Personal Data, and where there are exceptions to this rule, we will not further process such data except as we may notify you from time to time. Our organization follows strict compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act, the US CAN-SPAM policy, and the GDPR across all platforms of communication.
Under the GDPR, “Personal Data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable “Data Subject;” specifically including, but not limited to, name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that Data Subject. A Data Subject is an identifiable natural person, i.e., one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular, by reference to Personal Data. Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on Personal Data or on sets of Personal Data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction. “Process” and “processed” have a corresponding meaning.
The GDPR prohibits the processing of “special categories” of Personal Data unless certain exceptions apply, because this type of data could create more significant risks to a Data Subject’s fundamental rights and freedoms. For example, an unauthorized disclosure of “special categories” of Personal Data may put Data Subjects at risk of unlawful discrimination. For this purpose, processing of “special categories” of Personal Data includes processing of: (i) Personal Data that reveals; (A) racial or ethnic origin, (B) political opinions, (C) religious or philosophical beliefs, or (D) trade union membership; or (ii) (A) genetic data, (B) biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, (C) data concerning health; or (D) data concerning a natural personal’s sex life or sexual orientation.
