Lister Digital Services Privacy Notice
Effective on: 8/29/2022
Introduction and Scope
Lister Digital Services Inc. (“Lister Digital”, “we”, “us”, “our”) takes the protection of personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”) very seriously. This Privacy Notice (the “Notice”) addresses individuals whose Personal Data we may receive from our clients as we provide them with our digital and support services (collectively, the “Services”).
Controllership and Basis of Processing
In the context of this Notice, Lister Digital acts as service provider, also known as a “data processor”, for the Personal Data we process for our clients when providing our Services. This means that our clients determine the type of Personal Data they provide for us to process on their behalf. We typically have no direct relationship with the individuals whose Personal Data we receive from our clients. Within the scope of this Notice, we process Personal Data based on the documented instructions of our clients. To learn about our clients’ lawful bases for processing your Personal Data, please read their privacy notices.
How We Receive Personal Data
We may receive your Personal Data when:
- our clients (including their employees, contractors, and other representatives) provide it to us; or
- we receive it from other companies within our corporate group.
Categories of Personal Data
Our clients have full control over the categories of Personal Data which we process. Therefore, we cannot reasonably foresee and list all the types of Personal Data we may be asked to process, and we are unaware of the exact categories of Personal Data being processed. Generally, we process:
- biographical information (such as first and last name);
- contact information (such as email address, postal address, and phone numbers); and
- employment information (such as position and company).
Purposes of Processing
We process Personal Data for the purpose of providing our Services, as a data processor, on behalf of our clients.
We retain Personal Data for as long as instructed by our respective client (who acts as a data controller). We may retain Personal Data for longer if required by law to do so.
Sharing Personal Data with Third Parties
We may share Personal Data with other entities within our corporate group, as well as outside service providers. These third parties process Personal Data on our behalf and agree to use the Personal Data only to assist us in providing our Services or as required by law. Our service providers may provide:
- hosting services
- cloud storage services
- operational services
- document management, collaboration, and editing services.
Some of these third parties may be located outside of the United States. However, before transferring your Personal Data to these third parties, we will require the third party to maintain at least the same level of privacy and security for your Personal Data that we do. We remain liable for the protection of your Personal Data – within the scope of our Privacy Shield certification – that we transfer to third parties, except to the extent that we are not responsible for the event that leads to any unauthorized or improper processing.
Additionally, some of these third parties may be located outside of the European Union, or the European Economic Area. In some cases, the European Commission may not have determined that the countries’ data protection laws provide a level of protection equivalent to European Union law. We will only transfer your Personal Data to third parties in these countries when there are appropriate safeguards in place. These safeguards may include the 2021 European Commission approved standard contractual data protection clauses.
Other Disclosure of Your Personal Data
We may disclose your Personal Data to the extent required by law, or if we have a good-faith belief that we need to disclose it in order to comply with official investigations or legal proceedings (whether initiated by governmental, law enforcement officials, or private parties). We may also disclose your Personal Data if we sell or transfer all or some of our company’s business interests, assets, or both, or in connection with a corporate restructuring. Finally, we may disclose your Personal Data to our affiliates, but only if necessary for business purposes, as described in the section above.
If we have to disclose your Personal Data to governmental, law enforcement officials, we may not be able to ensure that those officials will maintain the privacy and security of your Personal Data.
Data Integrity & Security
We have implemented and will maintain technical, administrative, and physical measures that are reasonably designed to help protect Personal Data from unauthorized processing. This includes unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Access & Review / Limiting the Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Data
If we process your Personal Data, you may have the right to request access to (or to update, correct, or delete) such Personal Data. You may also have the right to ask that we limit our processing of such Personal Data, as well as the right to object to our processing of such Personal Data. You may also have the right to data portability.
If we have received your Personal Data in reliance on the Privacy Shield, you may also have the right to opt out of having your Personal Data shared with third parties and to revoke your consent to our sharing your Personal Data with third parties. You may also have the right to opt out if your Personal Data is used for any purpose that is materially different from the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or which you originally authorized.
Requests should be sent directly to the Lister Digital client who provided your Personal Data to us. We have limited rights to access the Personal Data our clients submit to us. Therefore, if you contact us with such a request, please provide the name of the Lister Digital client who provided your Personal Data to us. We will forward your request to that client and provide any needed assistance as they respond to your request.
EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks
For Personal Data processed in the scope of this Notice, Lister Digital complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks (the “Privacy Shield Frameworks”), as adopted and set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the processing of Personal Data transferred from the European Union, and/or Switzerland to the United States. We commit to adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles and have certified our adherence to the Department of Commerce.
The Privacy Shield Frameworks are no longer considered legitimate data transfer mechanisms for Personal Data transferred from the EU and Switzerland to the U.S. respectively. Lister Digital will however continue to maintain its Privacy Shield Framework certifications (1) to ensure that data received under these frameworks is appropriately protected and (2) because these frameworks are based on sound data privacy principles which help to protect the Personal Data of the data subjects whose Personal Data we process. The U.S. Department of Commerce continues to administer the Privacy Shield program.
Where a privacy complaint or dispute cannot be resolved through our internal processes, we have agreed to participate in the VeraSafe Privacy Shield Dispute Resolution Procedure. Subject to the terms of the VeraSafe Privacy Shield Dispute Resolution Procedure, VeraSafe will provide appropriate recourse free of charge to you. To file a complaint with VeraSafe and participate in the VeraSafe Privacy Shield Dispute Resolution Procedure, please submit the required information here.
If your dispute or complaint can’t be resolved by us, nor through the dispute resolution program established by VeraSafe, you may have the right to require that we enter into binding arbitration with you under the Privacy Shield’s “Recourse, Enforcement and Liability Principle” and Annex I of the Privacy Shield.
U.S. Regulatory Oversight
Lister Digital is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the United States Federal Trade Commission.
European Union Supervisory Authority Oversight
If you are a data subject whose Personal Data we process, you may also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection regulator in one or more of the European Union member states.
