UASI Privacy/Security Notice
United Audit System, Inc. (“UASI“) adheres to the principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. This applies to all personal information we handle, including on-line (except as noted below), off-line, and manually processed data.
Notice and Choice
UASI notifies individuals about the personal information we collect from them, how we use it, and how to contact us with privacy concerns. We obtain personal information only as permitted by applicable law or with the consent of the individual affected. We may require consent for personal information to be collected, used, and/or disclosed in certain ways in order for an individual to obtain or use our services. To the extent permitted under applicable law, we reserve the right to process personal information in the course of providing services to our clients without the knowledge of individuals affected.
Disclosures and Onward Transfers
UASI does not disclose personal information to third parties, except when one or more of the following conditions is true:
We have the individual’s permission to make the disclosure;
- The disclosure is permitted by law;
- The disclosure is reasonably related to the sale or other disposition of all or part of our business or assets;
- The personal information to be disclosed is publicly available;
- The party to whom the disclosure is made controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with UASI;
- The disclosure is reasonably necessary for the establishment or maintenance of legal claims; or
- The disclosure is to persons or entities for whom we are providing services, provided the disclosure is consistent with the purpose for which the personal information was obtained.
UASI complies with applicable law with respect to disclosures of sensitive information, including, when applicable, obtaining the consent of the individual prior to disclosing sensitive information to a third party or using sensitive information for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Transfers of information permitted under this notice, either to third parties or within UASI, include the transfer of data from one jurisdiction to another, such as transfers to and from the United States of America.
Data Security, Integrity, and Access
UASI employs physical, electronic, and administrative measures, including education and training of our personnel, designed to protect the personal information in our possession from accidental destruction, loss, improper use, alteration, or disclosure. Personal information collected or displayed through a web site is protected in transit by industry standard encryption processes. However, UASI cannot guarantee the security of personal information accessible on or transmitted via the internet. UASI processes personal information in ways compatible with the purpose for which the personal information was collected, or as otherwise authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for such purposes, we take reasonable steps to make sure that personal information is accurate, complete, current, and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use. If an individual becomes aware that personal information we maintain about that individual is inaccurate, or if an individual would like to update or review his or her personal information, the individual may contact us. As a security precaution, we may request that the individual provide identifying information such as name, address, birth date, and/or social security number. In addition, we may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or expensive in the circumstances, or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. In some circumstances, we may charge a reasonable fee, where warranted and as permitted by law, for access to personal information.
UASI has established a program to monitor our adherence to applicable privacy laws and to address questions and concerns regarding our adherence. We encourage interested persons to raise any concerns with us using the contact on our web site. With respect to any dispute relating to information privacy that cannot be resolved through our internal processes, we will cooperate with applicable governmental authorities and comply with the advice of such authorities. In the event that we or such authorities determine that we did not comply with our privacy policies, we will take appropriate steps to address any adverse effects and to promote future compliance. We may amend this notice from time to time by posting a revised notice on this web site. If we amend the notice, the new notice will apply to personal information previously collected only insofar as the rights of the individual affected are not reduced. We will not amend this notice in a manner inconsistent with applicable law.
