When we do this, we will require our business partners to use the personal information we share with them in a manner consistent with the purposes for which it was originally collected (or to which you subsequently consent) and only as permitted under this Policy, any applicable country’s privacy and data protection laws.

The level of information protection in countries outside the EEA may be less than that offered within the EEA. Where this is the case, we will implement appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information remains protected and secure in accordance with applicable data protection laws. EU standard contractual clauses are in place between all SAi entities that share and process personal information. Where our third-party service providers process personal information outside the EEA in the course of providing services to us and they are not in compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield or in absence of an adequacy decision by the European Commission, our written agreement with them will include appropriate measures, usually standard contractual clauses.
We maintain safeguards to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of your personal information. For example, we use secure socket layer (SSL) technology to transfer personal information over the internet. Although we use security measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized disclosure, misuse, or alteration, as is the case with all computer networks linked to the internet, we do not guarantee the security of information provided over the internet and are not responsible for breaches of security beyond our control.
We have implemented technical and organizational measures to protect all our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information that we hold. We encrypt many of our services using SSL. We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems. We restrict access to personal information to SA International Inc. employees, contractors and agents, including external development contractors who may reside outside of the EU, who need to access that information in order to process it for us and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations. They may be disciplined or their contract terminated if they fail to meet these obligations. We have a robust data breach policy and if such a breach is discovered we will immediately assess the seriousness of the breach and decide an appropriate course of action. If required, the relevant supervisory authority will be notified of the breach within 72 hours of the breach being discovered by an officer of SA International Inc.
