CSR describes the personal information we collect in the sections below.

Collection of your Personal Information
Generally, you can visit the CSR websites without providing any personal information. However, in order to access some parts of our websites, we may need to collect personal information from you. CSR obtains and uses personal information, as defined below, for its business use and for local, state, federal and foreign country reporting requirements.
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of information. Providing personal information to us is voluntary. If you do not provide personal information to us, then you will not be able to benefit from the respective functionality offered by our websites, including our online solution sets, such as Readiness® or any other solutions offered by CSR Privacy Solutions.
Overall, your personal information may be used for the following reasons:
- Browser based data such as IP Address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, etc.
- Personal information during registration of our online tools such as name, email addresses, full mailing or physical address, company name, title, privacy role, industry, and phone number(s);
- Account number of your provider for our online solution sets;
- Username and password;
- Information for subscribing into our email newsletters; and
- Information submitted as a web request through our web based online forms.
Collection of personal information will occur when responding to a job posting on our website and will consist of the personal information included on the resume and/or cover letter.
Submitted personal information that that relates to another person(s) will only be accepted once consent has been received from that person(s) and documented. Some of our services are intended to assist parent(s) or guardian(s) with needs related to their children. We will not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal data from a minor under the age of 18, without obtaining prior consent from a person with parental responsibility (e.g., a parent or guardian) through direct off-line contact. We will provide the parent with (i) notice of the specific types of personal data being collected about or from the minor, and (ii) the opportunity to object to collection, use, or storage of such information. We abide by laws designed to protect children.
Use of your Personal Information
We use the information collected for legally required reporting to governmental or regulatory entities, marketing of our products, supporting products purchased and providing continuing services. Personal information submitted via our websites may be used for the purposes outlined in this policy.

Where applicable, clients may have the option of providing, or not providing, personal information.
Sharing of Information
CSR may share personal information with third-parties. Doing so allows us to efficiently conduct our business. Information may be shared with or obtained by third-party service providers who provide us with services such as data hosting or processing, credit card processing, credit checks or processing and fulfilling reservations or purchases. We believe these providers exercise reasonable care to protect personal information and third-party contracts restrict the use of personal information to the purposes for which it was provided to them.
Personal information may also be disclosed if necessary: as required by law or regulation; to comply with legal, regulatory or administrative requirements of governmental authorities; to comply with a court order, subpoena, search warrant or other valid legal process; in connection with legal action, claim or dispute, including, but not limited to, the collection of debts; and for the protection of persons or property.
Record Retention and Data Destruction
CSR keeps Personal Information for as long as is necessary for business purposes, or as legally required by appropriate state, federal and regulatory bodies or other countries. Beyond that time period, records, both physical and electronic, are destroyed.
All data is ultimately transferred to and stored in the United States. CSR’s online solution sets will request consent to complete this transfer. CSR cannot provide the online solution set without consent.
CSR uses security safeguards to protect Personal Information from unauthorized access. We have policies and procedures in place to set forth physical, administrative and technological safeguards around data security. We train our employees in these policies and procedures. In the event of an actual or suspected breach, CSR follows the steps outlined in its Incident Response Plan.
Payment related data, if stored on our secure servers, will be encrypted and stored with a multi-key encryption algorithm or hashed. Transmission of data on the internet is insecure and transmission of data over the internet cannot be 100% guaranteed.
User is responsible for keeping secure passwords generated on CSR online applications. CSR hashes passwords and does not have access to passwords through back-end systems. CSR will never ask for a password other than on the log in page of the CSR online solution.
