Privacy Shield Principles
1. and 2. Notice and Choice
If you are our Customer, Lokalise may act as an agent for you in relation to the Personal Data that you provide or make available to Lokalise. Lokalise usually will not have a relationship with your Authorized Users (as defined in the Terms of Service), customers or end-users. Here, the Customer is responsible for ensuring that its Authorized Users customers or end-users are provided with appropriate notice and choice with respect to their Personal Data.
In its role as a controller, and as required by applicable law, Lokalise generally offers individuals in the EU and Switzerland (together: “EEA/CH Consumers”) the opportunity to choose whether their Personal Data may be (a) disclosed to third-party controllers or (b) used for a purpose that is materially different from the purposes for which the information was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the relevant EEA/CH Consumer. To the extent required by the Privacy Shield Principles, Lokalise obtains opt-in consent for certain uses and disclosures of sensitive data. EEA/CH Consumers may contact Lokalise as indicated below regarding the Lokalise’s use or disclosure of their Personal Data. Unless Lokalise offers EEA/CH Consumers an appropriate choice, Lokalise uses Personal Data only for purposes that are materially the same as those indicated in this Policy.
3. Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
We only collect Personal Data that is relevant to providing our Services. We process Personal Data compatible with us providing the Services or as otherwise notified to you. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Data received under the Privacy Shield is needed for Lokalise’s Services and is accurate, complete and current.
4. Accountability for Onward Transfers
Except as permitted or required by applicable law and in accordance with Lokalise’s role as a controller or processor, Lokalise provides EEA/CH Consumers with an opportunity to opt out of sharing their Personal Data with third-party controllers. Lokalise requires third-party controllers to whom it discloses the Personal Data of EEA/CH Consumers to contractually agree to (a) only process the Personal Data for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by the relevant EEA/CH Consumer, (b) provide the same level of protection for Personal Data as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles, and (c) notify Lokalise and cease processing Personal Data (or take other reasonable and appropriate remedial steps) if the third-party controller determines that it cannot meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection for Personal Data as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles.
We may also need to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, for law enforcement or national security reasons, or when such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding or court order, or when otherwise required by law. We do not offer an opportunity to opt out from this category of disclosure.
Lokalise shall remain liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if its agent processes your Personal Data in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, unless Lokalise proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
5. Data Security
We use reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the nature of the Personal Data and the risks involved in processing that information.
6. Access to Personal Data
When Lokalise acts on behalf of its Customers, Lokalise will assist all Customers in responding to individuals exercising their rights under the Privacy Shield Principles.
If you are an Authorized User, customer or end-user of our Customer, please contact the Customer directly with your request to access or limit the use or disclosure of your Personal Data. If you contact us with the name of the Customer to which you provided your Personal Data, we will refer your request to that Customer and support them in responding to your access request.
7. Recourse, Enforcement and Dispute Resolution
If you have any questions or concerns, please write to us at the address listed below. We will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints and disputes regarding use and disclosure of Personal Data in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles.
For complaints from EU/CH Consumers that cannot be resolved directly by us, we have chosen to cooperate with EU data protection authorities (the "DPAs") and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (the "FDPIC"), respectively, and comply with the information and advice the DPAs and the FDPIC may provide in relation to such unresolved complaints (as further described in the Privacy Shield Principles). Please contact us in order to be directed to the relevant DPA or FDPIC contacts.
Lokalise has further committed to cooperating with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning human resources data transferred from the EU in the context of the employment relationship.
In the event that we are unable to resolve your concern, EU Consumers may contact the American Arbitration Association and CH Consumers may contact JAMS, which provide an independent third-party dispute resolution body based in the United States. They will investigate and assist you free of charge. A binding arbitration option may also be available to you in order to address residual complaints not resolved by any other means. Lokalise is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”).
