We value your privacy, and we make this policy easily accessible throughout our site to assist you in understanding the way information is handled. At BOE we want to make your online experience easy and safe. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want you to fully understand our policies surrounding the attainment and use of that information.
EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield
BOE participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. BOE is committed to subjecting all personal data received from European Union (EU) member countries, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, respectively, in reliance on the Privacy Shield Framework, to the Framework’s applicable Principles. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Frameworks, and to view our certification, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield List. [https://www.privacyshield.gov/list]
BOE is responsible for the processing of personal data it receives, under each Privacy Shield Framework, and subsequent transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. BOE complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.
With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, BOE is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, BOE may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request.
Under certain conditions, more fully described on the Privacy Shield website [https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=How-to-Submit-a-Complaint], you may invoke binding arbitration when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted.
