Guidelines

WorldofMissMindy.com has adopted the seven Privacy Shield Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer (transfer to third parties), access, security, data integrity, and enforcement with respect to personal data to be transferred to the U.S. from WorldofMissMindy.com operations in the EU.

Notice – WorldofMissMindy.com will notify employees and customers in the EU about the purposes for which personal data will be collected and used. Information will be provided on how employees and customers can contact WorldofMissMindy.com with inquiries or complaints regarding personal data. WorldofMissMindy.com will give notice to employees and customers regarding third parties to which it discloses the information, and restrictions that limit the information’s use and disclosure. In certain situations, data is “anonymized” so that the names of the data subjects are not known by data processors within WorldofMissMindy.com. In these cases, data subjects do not need to be notified.

Choice – Prior to releasing personal data to a third party, WorldofMissMindy.com will give an individual employee or customer the opportunity to choose whether their personal data is disclosed to that third party or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by that individual. For sensitive data, an affirmative choice will be given to the employee or customer if the personal data is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose other than its original purpose or the purposes authorized subsequently by the individual.

Onward transfer – (transfer to third parties) – Prior to disclosing personal data to a third party, WorldofMissMindy.com will apply the notice and choice principles, enumerated above.

Access – Employees and customers covered under this policy will have access to personal information about them that WorldofMissMindy.com holds and will be able to correct, amend, or delete information if it is inaccurate (the exception is when the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks of the individual privacy in the case in question or the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.)
