Teletype processes such information in accordance with this Policy. The affiliated sites may have different privacy practices and policies and Teletype encourages all visitors to read and familiarize themselves with the affiliated company's privacy policies.

Once a visitor has used these links to leave Teletype's site, the visitor should note that Teletype does not have any control over that other website.

Notice and Choice.

To the extent permitted by the Safe Harbor Agreement, Teletype reserves the right to process personal information in the course of providing professional services to Teletype's clients without the knowledge of individuals involved. Where Teletype collects personal information directly from individuals in the European Union and Switzerland, Teletype will inform them about the types of personal information Teletype collects from them, the purposes for which Teletype collects and uses such information, and the types of non-agent third parties to which Teletype discloses that information. Teletype will also inform those individuals about the choices and means, if any, Teletype offers individuals for limiting the use or disclosure of their information.

Disclosure and Transfers.

In general, Teletype will not disclose any personally identifiable information except when Teletype has permission under special circumstances, such as when Teletype believes in good faith that the law requires it or under other circumstances outlined in this Policy. Teletype may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting Teletype in fraud prevention or investigation. Teletype may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; or, (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or, (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these companies for marketing purposes. Permitted transfers of information, either to third parties or within Teletype, include the transfer of data from one jurisdiction to another, including transfers to and from the United States of America. Because privacy laws vary from one jurisdiction to another, personal information may be transferred to a jurisdiction where the laws provide less or different protection than the jurisdiction in which the personal information originated.

Data Integrity.

To the extent necessary for such purposes, Teletype take reasonable steps to make sure that personal information is accurate, complete, current and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use.

To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use and confidentiality of personally identifiable information, either for its own purposes or on behalf of Teletype's clients, Teletype has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information Teletype possess. However, Teletype cannot guarantee the security of personally identifiable information on or transmitted via the Internet.

Access and Correction.

If an individual becomes aware that personally identifiable information Teletype maintains about that individual is inaccurate, or if an individual would like to update or review his or her personal information, the individual may contact Teletype using the contact information below. Teletype will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete personally identifiable information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate. The individual will need to provide sufficient identifying personal information, such as name, address, birth date, and social security number. Teletype may request additional identifying personal information as a security precaution. Teletype may limit or deny access to personally identifiable information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or expensive in the circumstances, or as otherwise permitted by the Safe Harbor Agreement. In some circumstances, Teletype may charge a reasonable fee, where warranted, for access to personally identifiable information.

Enforcement and Dispute Resolution.

Teletype utilizes the self-assessment approach to ensure its compliance with Teletype's privacy policy. Teletype periodically verifies that the policy is accurate, comprehensive for the information intended to be covered, prominently displayed, completely implemented, and in conformity with the Safe Harbor Principles. Teletype encourages interested persons to raise any concerns with Teletype using the contact information below.

If Teletype or the European Union and Switzerland Data Protection Authorities determine that Teletype did not comply with this Policy, Teletype will take appropriate steps to address any adverse effects and to promote future compliance.
