Technical Precision Privacy & Data Handling Policy

  1. Purpose

Technical Precision is committed to protecting the privacy of Personal Data of its Workers, Customers, Business Partners, and other identifiable individuals. Technical Precision has, therefore, implemented a global data protection and privacy program to establish and maintain high standards for collecting, using, disclosing, storing, securing, accessing, transferring, or otherwise processing Personal Data. This Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy is the foundation of that data protection and privacy program and describes the approach taken by Technical Precision when processing Personal Data anywhere in the world.

  1. Scope

All employees, contractors, consultants, temporary, and other workers at Technical Precision and its subsidiaries must comply with this policy, including all personnel affiliated with third parties who may have access to any applicable Technical Precision resource, including cloud-based services, hosted inside or outside of Technical Precision.

This Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy applies globally to Technical Precision’s processing of Personal Data, whether by electronic or manual means (i.e., in hard copy, paper, or analog form). All Technical Precision entities and Technical Precision Workers shall comply with this Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy.

With respect to HR Personal Data and Business Personal Data specifically, this Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy is supplemented by Technical Precision’s Global HR Data Protection Policy and Technical Precision’s Business Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy. These internal policy documents describe in more detail how this Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy applies to HR Personal Data and Business Personal Data, respectively, and provide guidance to Technical Precision Workers on the proper handling of Personal Data.

This Policy applies to any Personal Data that is created, collected, processed, used, shared, or destroyed for or by Technical Precision.

  1. Policy Statement(s)

3.1 Adequate Safeguards for Processing of Personal Data

In conjunction with the Global HR Data Protection Policy and Business Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy, this Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy is also intended to provide adequate safeguards for the processing of Personal Data entrusted to Technical Precision and transferred from countries requiring such protections. This is to enable Technical Precision to transfer Personal Data wherever it is needed around the globe to enable and support its internal business processes or enable services and product functionality. In order to do this, each of the Global HR Data Protection Policy, EEA HR Data Protection Policy and the Business Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy describe certain additional obligations and legal rights in circumstances where European Data Protection Law, American, APEC, and other countries or regions’ data protection law or requirements differ and are applicable.

3.2 Compliance with Applicable Law

Technical Precision shall comply with applicable local data protection laws and requirements worldwide.

Where applicable data protection laws require a higher standard of protection for Personal Data than that set out in this Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy, the requirements of applicable data protection law shall prevail. Where applicable data protection laws establish a lower standard of protection for Personal Data than that set out in this Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy, the requirements of this Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy shall prevail.

Where Technical Precision Workers have reason to believe that applicable law prevents Technical Precision from fulfilling its obligations under this Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy, they shall promptly inform the Global Privacy Office – privacy@TechnicalPrecision.com and/or Technical Precision Legal – generalcounsel@TechnicalPrecision.com. Where there is a conflict between applicable law and this Global Personal Data Protection & Privacy Policy, the Chief Privacy Officer and Technical Precision Legal shall make a responsible decision regarding what action to take to resolve such a conflict and shall consult with the relevant regulatory authority in cases of doubt.

Technical Precision shall instruct and contractually require third parties processing Personal Data on behalf of Technical Precision, if any, to: (a) process it only for purposes consistent with Technical Precision’s purpose(s) for processing; and (b) implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to safeguard the Personal Data.
