FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS POLICY:
"Personal Information” shall refer to any information that (i) is transferred from the European Economic Area or Switzerland to MTFX in the United States, (ii) is about an identified or identifiable Individual, (iii) can be linked to that Individual and (iv) is recorded in any form.
“Individual” means any natural or legal person, other than those acting in their capacity as Workers
“Worker” means any person who was previously, is currently, or might in the future be engaged by a MTFX affiliate as an employee under contract of service or in any other capacity under a contract for service or any other arrangement to work for any MTFX affiliate (e.g. intern, temporary staff, contractor, job applicant, etc.), as well as any dependents, beneficiaries and other related persons about whom such person provides information to a MTFX affiliate in connection with such relationship with MTFX or its affiliate.
Where MTFX receives personal information from its subsidiaries, affiliates or other entities in the EEA and Switzerland, it will use and disclose such information in accordance with the notices provided by such entities and the choices made by the Individuals to whom such personal information relates.
MTFX will offer Individuals the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether their personal information is (a) to be disclosed to a third party (other than MTFX’s service providers or as specified in the Onward Transfer section below), or (b) to be used for a purpose other than for what it was originally collected or subsequently authorised by the Individual.
ONWARD TRANSFER OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
MTFX shall take reasonable steps to ensure that Individual Personal Information is: (i) relevant for the purposes for which it was collected or authorised by the Individual, (ii) reliable for its intended use and (iii) information is accurate, complete and current. Please contact us or use our website to update your Personal Information as necessary.
MTFX will provide Individuals with reasonable access to examine Personal Information that it holds. MTFX will take reasonable steps to permit Individuals to correct, delete, change or challenge the accuracy of the data that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete.
Requests for access to Personal Information should be made as discussed in the Contact section below during normal business hours, in line with MTFX standard procedures and the frequency of access shall not be excessive.
Under the Safe Harbor Principals there are some exceptions to the obligation to provide access to Personal Information. For example, MTFX may restrict access to proprietary information, such as business plans or other such sensitive information. Granting of access shall be restricted where the burden of expensive of providing access will be disproportionate to the risks of the privacy of other persons, or in cases where the rights of others would be violated.
Should an Individual be denied access to Personal Information, MTFX shall provide the Individual with the reason(s) and a contact point.
MTFX takes reasonable precautions to protect Individual Personal Information against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, destruction and theft.
MTFX has in place appropriate physical and technical safeguards in addition to employee policies and procedures to protect Individual Personal Information.
