European Union or Swiss Safe Harbor Policy
The Booth Company ("the company," "we," "us," or "our") respects individual Privacy and values the confidence of our customers,
employees, consumers, business partners, and others. The Booth Company complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the
U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework concerning the transfer of personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United
States of America. Accordingly, we follow the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles published by the U.S. Department of Commerce ("Principles")
with respect to all such data. This statement outlines our general policy and practices for implementing the Principles, including the
types of information the company gathers, how we use it, and the choices affected individuals have regarding our use of, and their
ability to correct, that information. This statement applies to all personal information we handle, including on-line (except as
noted below), off-line, and manually processed data. For purposes of this statement, "personal information" means information that:
- is transferred from the European Union or Switzerland to the United States;
- is recorded in any form;
- is about, or pertains to, a specific individual or can be linked to that individual.
Principles Protecting Individuals' Privacy
Notice and Choice
To the extent permitted by the Safe Harbor Frameworks, we reserve the right to process personal information in the course
of our internal business operation without the knowledge of individuals involved. Where the company receives personal
information from its subsidiaries, affiliates, or other entities in the EU or Swiss, the company will use and disclose such
information in accordance with the purposes for which it was originally collected, or in accordance with the notices
provided by such entities. The company will provide notice and provide individuals with an opportunity to "opt out" if
such personal information is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for
which it was originally collected. For sensitive information, affirmative or explicit, the company will provide notice
and individual choice will be given to "opt-in" if such sensitive information is to be disclosed to a third party or used
for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected. We collect personal information from
individuals only as permitted by the Principles or with the consent of the individual affected. Consent for personal
information to be collected, used, and/or disclosed in certain ways may be required in order for an individual to obtain
or use our services.
Disclosures and Transfers
We do not disclose an individual's personal information to third parties, except when one or more of the following conditions is true:
- We have the individual's permission to make the disclosure;
- The disclosure is required by law or mandatory professional standards;
- The disclosure is reasonably related to the sale or other disposition of all or part of our business;
- The information in question is publicly available;
- The disclosure is reasonably necessary for the establishment of legal claims; or
- The disclosure is to another The Booth Company entity or to persons or entities providing services
on our or the individual's behalf (each a "transferee"), consistent with the purpose for which the information
was obtained, if the transferee, with respect to the information in question:
- is subject to law providing an adequate level of privacy protection;
- has agreed in writing to provide an adequate level of privacy protection; or
- subscribes to the Principles.
Permitted transfers of information, either to third parties or within The Booth Company, or between subsidiaries of
The Booth Company, include the transfer of data from one jurisdiction to another, including transfers to and from the
United States of America. Because privacy laws vary from one jurisdiction to another, personal information may be
transferred to a jurisdiction where the laws provide less or different protection than the jurisdiction in which the information originated.
Data Security, Integrity and Access
We employ various physical, electronic, and managerial measures, designed to provide personal information with reasonable
protection from accidental loss or destruction, improper use, alteration, or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee the
security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.
We process personal information only in ways compatible with the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by the individual. To
the extent necessary for such purposes, we take reasonable steps to make sure that personal information is accurate, complete,
current, and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use.
If an individual becomes aware that information we maintain about that individual is inaccurate, or if an individual would like to
update or review his or her information, the individual may contact us using the contact information below. The individual will
need to provide sufficient identifying information. We may request additional identifying information as a security precaution.
In addition, we may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or
expensive in the circumstances, or as otherwise permitted by the Safe Harbor Frameworks. In some circumstances, we may charge a
reasonable fee, where warranted, for access to personal information.
This policy may be amended from time to time, consistent with the requirements of the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles. If we amend
this policy, a revised policy will be posted on our Web site.
