TrueVault complies with the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Frameworks, as well as the U.K. extension of the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from European Union / European Economic Area member countries, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland to the United States. We have certified with the U.S. Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Data Privacy Framework Principles. To learn more about the Data Privacy Framework Principles, visit the official website.

In the course of providing our services to our customers in our role as a “processor,” we may receive the personal data of individuals located in the European Union / European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland. This personal data consists of names, email addresses, and online identifiers that are necessary for our customers to authenticate and respond to privacy requests from European data subjects. We also provide secure storage for personal data being provided in response to data subject access requests. We do not use this data for any other purposes, and we are contractually bound to adhere to our customers’ instructions. 

We disclose personal data received under the Data Privacy Framework to third-party cloud computing & storage providers and email service providers acting on our behalf, solely for the purpose of enabling our services. These third parties’ use, access, and disclosure must be in compliance with our Data Privacy Framework obligations. We remain liable for any violations of the Data Privacy Framework Principles by these third parties unless we prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

Individuals whose personal data is transferred under the Data Privacy Framework have the right to access personal information about them that an organization holds, and to be able to correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate, or has been processed in violation of the Data Privacy Framework Principles. Individuals also have the right to choose whether their personal information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please write to us at moc.tluaveurt@ycavirp. As a data processor, we may not have the independent authority to act on your request, in which case we will refer you to the organization with which you have a direct relationship.

If you have any questions or complaints about our handling of your personal data under the Data Privacy Framework, please contact us at moc.tluaveurt@ycavirp

In compliance with the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF, TrueVault commits to cooperate and comply respectively with the advice of the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) with regard to unresolved complaints concerning our handling of personal data received in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF.  In some situations, the DPF Framework gives you the right to invoke binding arbitration. You can do this to resolve complaints not resolved by other means, as described in Annex I to the Framework.

You can review our Data Privacy Framework registration here. We are subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission. We may be required to disclose personal information that we handle under the Data Privacy Framework in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

The Services are intended for a general audience and are not directed to children under 13 years of age. TrueVault does not knowingly collect personal information as defined by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) in a manner that is not permitted by COPPA. If you are a parent or guardian and believe TrueVault has collected such information in a manner not permitted by COPPA, please contact us at moc.tluaveurt@ycavirp and we will remove such information to the extent required by COPPA.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to the Services. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Services.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to revise this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting of the revised Privacy Policy and updating the “last modified” date above. Your continued use of the Services indicates your consent to the Privacy Policy then posted. If the changes are material, we may provide you additional notice to your email address. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable email address for you, and for periodically visiting our website and this Privacy Policy to check for any changes.
