This policy must clearly state the information being collected and the parties with whom it is shared.

Understanding and implementing these principles is crucial for compliance with various privacy laws that safeguard personal information.

To align with the Fair Information Practices, we will take the following responsive measures in the event of a data breach:

We also uphold the Individual Redress Principle, which grants individuals the right to seek legal remedies against data collectors and processors who fail to comply with the law. This principle ensures that individuals not only have enforceable rights against data users but also have the means to pursue legal action through courts or government agencies to address non-compliance by data processors.
