This Privacy Policy sets out:
  1.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.

We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy. Your continued use of the Services after such changes have been notified will constitute your acknowledgement of those changes.
In relation to the Processing of your Personal Data, we will comply with the relevant laws and regulations relating to the protection of individuals with regard to the Processing of their Personal Data (the "Data Protection Legislation"), including for the European Union (a) until May 24, 2018, the national laws implementing Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of October 24, 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and Directive 2002/58/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of July 12, 2002 concerning the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector, (b) as of May 25, 2018, Regulation 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation, the "GDPR") and (c) any other relevant national privacy law.

Security

Taking into account the state of the art of the technology, the costs of its implementation, the nature of the data and the risk of the processing, we implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security and confidentiality of our systems so as to protect your Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction or alteration, accidental loss, theft, misuse, alteration and unauthorized access or disclosure or access, unlawful or accidental destruction and against other unlawful forms of processing.

Transfer of Information to the U.S. and Other Countries

The file containing your Personal Data will be stored at our offices or on our servers and those of our service providers, which may be located in the U.S. or other countries which may not have a level of data protection law equivalent to that of your country, and your Personal Data may become subject to the laws of such foreign jurisdictions including those that may grant access to your Personal Data to the authorities of such foreign jurisdictions. In this case, we will take the following measures as required under the GDPR to ensure such transfer is carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection rules.

The European Commission has approved the use of model contract clauses as a means of ensuring adequate protection when transferring data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). By incorporating model contract clauses into a contract established between the parties transferring data, personal data can be protected when transferred outside the EEA to countries which have not been deemed by the European Commission to adequately protect personal data. ESCO has incorporated model contract clauses into agreements between ESCO’s European subsidiaries and ESCO Corporation where data processing occurs.
