9. International Data Transfers/Users from the European Economic Area
International Data Transfers
AGSN may transfer your Personal Information (or Personal Data under GDPR) to countries other than the one in which you live. To the extent that Personal Information is transferred abroad, AGSN will ensure compliance with the requirements of the applicable laws in the respective jurisdiction in line with our obligations. Specifically, we use European Union Model Clauses (“Model Clauses”) also known as Standard Contractual Clauses, to meet the adequacy and security requirements for our Customers that operate in the EEA, Switzerland and the UK and for other international transfers of Customer Data as relevant.
Legal Basis for Processing
If you are an individual resident in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), ASGN collects and processes information about you only where we have a legal basis for doing so under applicable European Union laws. In that regard, ASGN is the controller of the information that you provide. The legal basis depends on how you use the Website including (1) our need to collect and use the information to provide our services to you; (2) it satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the services and to protect our legal rights and interests; or (3) you give us consent to do so for a specific purpose.
If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use, although, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the services.
How to Access or Control Your Information
The General Data Protection Directive (“GDPR”) grants individuals residing in the EEA certain rights with respect to their information. These include the right to request a copy of your information, to object to Our use of your information (including for marketing purposes), to request the deletion or restriction of your information, or to request your information in a structured, electronic format. To communicate with our Data Protection Officer or to exercise these rights, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The GDPR provides that we may limit or deny your requests in certain cases. For example, if fulfilling your request would reveal information about another person, or if you ask to delete information which we have compelling legitimate interests to keep, including as required by law. You may have the right to complain to a data protection authority in the country where you live, where you work or where you feel your rights were infringed if you have concerns about your rights.
