International Transfers of Your Personal Data

Your personal information may be collected, transferred to and stored by us in the United States and by our affiliates in other countries where we operate.  Your personal information may also be sent to third parties (see above).  Therefore, your personal information may be processed outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and/or Switzerland, and in countries which are not subject to an adequacy decision by the European Commission and which may not provide for the same level of data protection as the EEA and/or Switzerland.  In this event, we will use additional safeguards to ensure your data is protected, for instance by entering into standard contractual clauses for the transfer of data and, where needed, additional safeguards to ensure your data is protected.

How We Protect Your Personal Data

Emergent uses reasonable procedural, technical and physical security measures to safeguard the personal data in our possession. Such measures are designed to protect your personal data from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.  Although we take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Retention of Your Personal Data

We retain your personal data for the period necessary to fulfill the legitimate business purposes or uses outlined in this Privacy Notice in accordance with our data retention policy, unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by applicable data protection law or to otherwise fulfill a legal obligation.

Children

We do not knowingly collect any information from children, as defined by applicable law, without parental consent or as otherwise permitted by applicable law.

Laws and Rights That May Apply to You

Depending on where you live, you are entitled, in accordance with applicable law, to object to or request restriction of processing of your personal data, and to request access to, rectification, erasure, deletion, destruction and portability of your personal data. Requests should be submitted in writing to the address listed below in the “How to Contact Us” section or via our Personal Information Request Form.  Residents of California may also submit requests by calling 855-894-4986.

We will verify and respond to your request consistent with applicable law, taking into account the type and sensitivity of the personal information subject to the request. For your protection, and to protect the privacy of others, we may need to verify your identity before completing what you have asked us to do.  We may need to request additional personal information from you, such as home address, email address and government issued ID, in order to protect against fraudulent or spoofed requests.  If you reside in California and would like to use an authorized agent to exercise your rights, we may request evidence that you have provided such agent with power of attorney or that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to exercise rights on your behalf.  If you reside in other jurisdictions (e.g., EEA, UK, Switzerland), the applicable law may also allow you to authorize a third party to exercise your rights.

If you are aware of changes or inaccuracies in your personal data, you should inform us of such changes so that the personal data may be updated or corrected.

Depending on where you live, you may also lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you consider that Emergent’s processing of personal data infringes applicable law.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
