PRIVACY PRINCIPLES

Beatty Group is committed to comply with the Privacy Shield Framework. The privacy principles in this Policy have been developed based on the Privacy Shield. https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome

NOTICE: Where Beatty Group collects personal information directly from individuals in the EEA, it will inform them about the purposes for which it collects and uses personal information about them, the types of non–agent third parties to which Beatty Group discloses that information, the choices and means, if any, Beatty Group offers individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of personal information about them, and how to contact Beatty Group. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide personal information to Beatty Group, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Beatty Group uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.  The types of third parties to which Beatty group may disclose information are travel related vendors including airlines, hotels, car rental companies, tour operators, etc.

Where Beatty Group receives personal information from other entities in the EEA, it will use and disclose such information in accordance with the notices provided by such entities and the choices made by the individuals to whom such personal information relates.

CHOICE: Beatty Group will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether their personal information is (a) to be disclosed to a non-agent third party, or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.

For sensitive personal information, Beatty Group will give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively and explicitly (opt-in) consent to the disclosure of the information to a non-agent third party or the use of the information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.

DATA INTEGRITY: Beatty Group will use personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Beatty Group will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.

TRANSFERS TO AGENTS: Beatty Group will obtain assurances from its agents that they will safeguard personal information consistently with this Policy. Examples of appropriate assurances that may be provided by agents include: a contract obligating the agent to provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the relevant Privacy Shield Principles, being subject to EU Directive 95/46/EC (the EU Data Protection Directive), Privacy Shield certification by the agent, or being subject to another European Commission adequacy finding (e.g., companies located in Canada). Where Beatty Group has knowledge that an agent is using or disclosing personal information in a manner contrary to this Policy, Beatty Group will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.

ACCESS AND CORRECTION: Upon request, Beatty Group will grant individuals reasonable access to personal information that it holds about them. In addition, Beatty Group will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete.

SECURITY: Beatty Group will take reasonable precautions to protect personal information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

ENFORCEMENT: Beatty Group will conduct compliance audits of its relevant privacy practices to verify adherence to this Policy. Any employee that Beatty Group determines is in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment. Beatty Group is also subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and/or the Department of Transportation.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION: Any questions or concerns regarding the use or disclosure of personal information should be directed to Beatty Group at the address given below. Beatty Group will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints and disputes regarding use and disclosure of personal information by reference to the principles contained in this Policy. Under certain conditions it is possible for an individual to invoke binding arbitration. If a complaint or dispute cannot be adequately resolved, outside mediation utilizing JAMS will be the next alternative. A case can be submitted electronically – https://www.jamsadr.com/about/submit-a-case.

LIMITATION ON APPLICATION OF PRINCIPLES

Adherence by Beatty Group to these Privacy Shield Principles may be limited (a) to the extent required to respond to a legal or ethical obligation; (b) to the extent necessary to meet national security, public interest or law enforcement obligations; and (c) to the extent expressly permitted by an applicable law, rule or regulation. In the case of onward transfers to third parties, Beatty Group shall remain liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if its agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless the organization proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

INTERNET PRIVACY

Beatty Group sees the Internet and the use of other technology as valuable tools to communicate and interact with clients, employees, agents, business partners, and others. Beatty Group recognizes the importance of maintaining the privacy of information collected online and has created a specific Internet Privacy Policy (the “IPP”) governing the treatment of personal information collected through web sites that it operates. With respect to personal information that is transferred from the European Economic Area to the U.S., the IPP is subordinate to this Policy. However, the IPP also reflects additional legal requirements and evolving standards with respect to Internet privacy. Beatty Group’ Internet Privacy Policy is available upon request.
