Privacy Shield Policy

MC3 is hereinafter referred to as "the Company."

1. Purpose

MC3 complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from European Union member countries, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom to the United States.  MC3 has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.  If there is any conflict between the policies in this privacy policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.  To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification page, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.
 

2. Scope

This Privacy Shield Policy (the “Policy”) sets forth the privacy principles that MC3 follows when processing Personal Data received from customers or prospective customers located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), Switzerland, and the United Kingdom while providing services. This Policy does not apply to information collected through MC3’s website or to information collected during MC3 sponsored sales and marketing activities.  This Policy also does not apply to Personal Data collected through MC3’s recruiting process.  For purposes of this Policy, Personal Data means information about an identified or identifiable individual that is received by MC3 in the United States from the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom and recorded in any form.   

3. Use of Cookies

When you view one of our websites or advertisements, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “Cookie” or similar file and will be used to determine ways to improve our websites, advertisements, products or services.

4. Role as a Service Provider to its Customers and Prospective Customers

MC3 is a leading provider of innovative training and meeting production solutions for the life sciences industry.   Our services include creative meeting production of sales, product launch and leadership meetings; custom training solutions; and the use of proprietary technologies to support those events, (collectively “Services”) for the benefit of its customers and prospective customers who are primarily located in the US.  For those customers in the EEA, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, services will be provided through employees located in the U.S. These U.S.- based employees may process Personal Data to provide Services to customers and prospective customers located in the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom. 

Customers using MC3’s Services are responsible for managing the data that they store within MC3’s solutions. Customers determine the categories of Personal Data and other information that are stored by MC3.  Similarly, MC3's customers and prospective customers who share data with MC3 in connection with any of its Services determine which categories of Personal Data will be shared and for what purposes.  Consequently, MC3 does not generally know the categories of Personal Data to be processed or the purpose(s) of the processing unless and until MC3 receives this information from its customers or prospective customers. 

When MC3 processes Personal Data, MC3 does so only for the purpose of providing Services.


5. The Customer’s and Prospective Customer’s Responsibilities with Respect to Personal Data

MC3 customers and prospective customers may choose to include Personal Data among the data stored within the MC3 Services or shared with MC3 in connection with its provision of Services. 

MC3 processes only the Personal Data that its customers or prospective customers have chosen to share with MC3.  MC3 has no direct or contractual relationship with the subject of such Personal Data (a "Data Subject").  As a result, when a customer or prospective customer shares Personal Data, the customer or prospective customer is solely responsible for satisfying all legal obligations owed directly to the Data Subject under applicable data protection laws.

It is the customer's or prospective customer's responsibility to ensure that the Personal Data it collects can be legally collected in the country of origin.  The customer or prospective customer is also responsible for providing to the Data Subject any notices required by applicable law and for responding appropriately to the Data Subject's request to exercise his or her rights with respect to Personal Data.  In addition, the customer or prospective customer is responsible for ensuring that its use of MC3’s Services is consistent with any privacy policy the customer or prospective customer has established and any notices it has provided to Data Subjects. 

MC3 is not responsible for its customers’ or prospective customers’ privacy policies or practices or for the customers’ or prospective customers’ compliance with such policies or practices. MC3 does not review, comment upon, or monitor its customers’ or prospective customers’ privacy policies or their compliance with such policies.  MC3 also does not review instructions or authorizations provided to MC3 to determine whether the instructions or authorizations are in compliance with, or conflict with, the terms of a customer's or prospective customer's published privacy policy or of any notice provided to Data Subjects.  Customers and prospective customers are responsible for providing instructions and authorizations that comply with their policies, notices, and applicable laws.

6. MC3’s Compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles

MC3 employees located in the United States may provide Services for customers and prospective customers located in the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom. To provide such Services, MC3 may access and use Personal Data. MC3 will apply the following Privacy Shield Principles to Personal Data physically or remotely transferred from the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom to the United States.

7. Access to Personal Data

Data Subjects have the right to access the Personal Data an organization holds about them. If such Personal Data is inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles, a Data Subject may also request that Personal Data be corrected, amended, or deleted.   

When MC3 receives Personal Data, it does so on its customer's or prospective customer's behalf.  To request access to, or correction, amendment or deletion of, Personal Data, Data Subjects should contact the MC3 customer or prospective customer that collected their Personal Data.  MC3 will cooperate with its customers' and prospective customers' reasonable requests to assist Data Subjects to exercise their rights under the Privacy Shield. 

8. Right to Limit Disclosure of Personal Data

Data subjects have the right to opt out of (a) disclosures of their Personal Data to third parties not identified at the time of collection or subsequently authorized, and (b) uses of Personal Data for purposes materially different from those disclosed at the time of collection or subsequently authorized.  MC3’s customers and prospective customers are responsible for informing Data Subjects when they have the right to opt out of such uses or disclosures.  

 

Data Subjects who wish to limit the use or disclosure of their Personal Data should submit that request to MC3’s customer or prospective customer that controls the use and disclosure of their Personal Data.  MC3 will cooperate with its customers’ and prospective customers’ instructions regarding Data Subjects’ choices.

9. Security of Personal Data

MC3 is committed to safeguarding the Personal Data that it receives.  While MC3 cannot guarantee the security of Personal Data, MC3 takes reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Data in MC3’s possession from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

MC3 utilizes a combination of online and offline security technologies, procedures and organizational measures to help safeguard Personal Data.  For example, facility security is designed to prevent unauthorized access to MC3 computers.  Electronic security measures — including, for example, network access controls, passwords and access logging — provide protection from hacking and other unauthorized access.  MC3 also protects Personal Data through the use of firewalls, role-based restrictions and, where appropriate, encryption technology.  MC3 limits access to Personal Data to employees, subcontractors, and third-party agents that have a specific business reason for accessing such Personal Data.  Individuals granted access to Personal Data are aware of their responsibilities to protect such information and are provided appropriate training and instruction.  

10. Purpose Limitation and Data Integrity

MC3's customers and prospective customers are responsible for limiting their collection of Personal Data to that which is necessary to accomplish the purposes disclosed to Data Subjects and compatible purposes. They also are responsible for providing MC3 with instructions or authorization for the processing of Personal Data consistent with such purposes.   

MC3's customers and prospective customers also are responsible for ensuring that (a) Personal Data they collect is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended uses; and (b) Personal Data is retained only for as long as is necessary to accomplish the customer's or prospective customer's legitimate business purposes disclosed to the Data Subject and for compatible purposes. MC3 will cooperate with customers' and prospective customers' reasonable requests for assistance in meeting these obligations.

In the performance of Services, MC3 will request only the minimum amount of information required to perform the applicable Services and will retain such information only for as long as necessary to provide the Services or for compatible purposes, such as to provide additional Services, to comply with legal requirements, or to preserve or defend MC3’s legal rights.

11. Disclosure of Personal Data

MC3 will not disclose Personal Data to a third party, except as stated below:

MC3 may disclose Personal Data to subcontractors and third-party agents who assist MC3 in providing Services to its customers and prospective customers. Before disclosing Personal Data to a subcontractor or third-party agent, MC3 will obtain assurances from the recipient that it will: (a) use the Personal Data only to assist MC3 in providing the Services; (b) provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Data as required by the Principles; and (c) notify MC3 if the recipient is no longer able to provide the required protections.  Upon notice, MC3 will act promptly to stop and remediate unauthorized processing of Personal Date by a recipient. 

MC3 may also be required to disclose, and may disclose, Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including for the purpose of meeting national security or law enforcement requirements. To the extent permitted, MC3 will inform its relevant customer or prospective customer before making such disclosure and provide it with a reasonable opportunity to object to such disclosure.

12. Recourses, Enforcement, and Liability

In compliance with the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Principles, MC3 commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and MC3’s collection or use of Personal Data transferred to the United States pursuant to this Policy.
