Global complies with and adheres to the Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of the data.

Notice

Global receives personal information about consumers from its clients. Global' clients (employers, financial institutions, other background screening or credit agencies, etc.) certify to Global that they have obtained the consumer's consent to share this information for a permissible purpose, usually for use in making employment-related decisions (who to hire, retain, promote, reassign, etc.), or for license applications (for professional or business purposes). 

Services are performed in accordance with applicable local and national laws. The scope of this notice covers EU and Switzerland consumer report data that Global has obtained on behalf of clients by contacting the appropriate sources of the data (courts, law enforcement agencies, educational institutions, employers, etc.).

Choice

Global affords individuals the opportunity to choose whether their personal information will be disclosed to a third party or will be used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Therefore, consumer data may be disseminated under these circumstances unless the consumer explicitly opts-out. Where a consumer chooses to opt-out, the data is not necessarily erased or deleted. Various laws require that the data be maintained on file for a specified period of time for consumer protection purposes. A consumer can opt-out by contacting Global in writing or by e-mail at the addresses listed below.

Accountability For Onward Transfer

Global discloses personal data that it collects to third parties in connection with the business transaction for which it was collected. Third party disclosure of the information may include the Global' client whom the consumer has authorized to receive such information, the third-party representative of Global authorized to receive such information (affiliate companies, agents, in-country sources, educational institutions, employers, courts, law enforcement agencies and other persons or entities that may provide or verify information as necessary for Global to process the authorized transaction). Information you provide may also be disclosed in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including disclosures to meet national security or law enforcement requirements (subpoenas, court orders, etc.).

Access

A consumer may request, in writing, a copy of their consumer report. Global affords the consumer a reasonable opportunity to correct, amend or delete information that is inaccurate or incomplete, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual's privacy or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated. Consumers who wish to exercise these rights may contact Global using the contact details listed below. For security purposes, Global will require verification of the consumer's identity.

Security

Global is committed to protecting personal information. While Global cannot guarantee the security of the information, Global utilizes a combination of online and offline security technologies, procedures and organizational measures to help safeguard consumer information against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

In accordance with applicable law, Global takes reasonable steps to ensure that the information Global collects is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use. Global only collects data that is necessary for the purposes listed under the section on "Notice."Global takes reasonable and appropriate measures to retain personal data only for as long as Global has a legitimate legal or business need, such as compliance with legal or contractual retention obligations, retention for audit purposes, customer service, security and fraud prevention, preservation of legal rights or other reasonable purposes consistent with the purpose of the collection of the information. Global will adhere to the Principles for as long as Global retains personal data transferred in reliance upon the Privacy Shield.Global makes every effort to ensure that the data it collects and stores is as accurate as possible.
