Privacy Shield Policy Effective Date: January 1, 2020 | Last modified: January 7, 2020
The Company recognizes that the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland have established strict protections regarding the handling of Personal Data, including requirements to provide adequate protection for Personal Data transferred outside of the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland. To provide adequate protection for certain Personal Data about consumers, corporate customers, clients, suppliers, and business partners received in the US from the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland, the Company has elected to self-certify to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework administered by the US Department of Commerce ("Privacy Shield"). The Company adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles of Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, and Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability.
For purposes of enforcing compliance with the Privacy Shield, the Company is subject to the investigatory and enforcement authority of the US Federal Trade Commission.

Personal Data Collection and Use
Data Transfers to Third Parties
Disclosures for National Security or Law Enforcement. Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your Personal Data in response to valid requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
The Company maintains reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction in accordance with the Privacy Shield.
You may have the right to access the Personal Data that we hold about you and to request that we correct, amend, or delete it if it is inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of someone other than the individual requesting access. If you would like to request access to, correction, amendment, or deletion of your Personal Data, you can submit a written request to the contact information provided below. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity. In some circumstances we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information.

You can direct any questions or complaints about the use or disclosure of your Personal Data to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1 818-880-9021. We will investigate and attempt to resolve any complaints or disputes regarding the use or disclosure of your Personal Data within 45 days of receiving your complaint. For any unresolved complaints, we have agreed to cooperate with JAMS, an independent dispute resolution provider located in the United States. If you are unsatisfied with the resolution of your complaint or if you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, you may contact JAMS at https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield for further information and assistance or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.
Binding Arbitration. You may have the option to select binding arbitration for the resolution of your complaint under certain circumstances, provided you have taken the following steps: (1) raised your compliant directly with VS Media and provided us the opportunity to resolve the issue; (2) made use of the independent dispute resolution mechanism identified above; and (3) raised the issue through the relevant data protection authority and allowed the US Department of Commerce an opportunity to resolve the complaint at no cost to you.
