EU - US Data Privacy Safe Harbor Policy
This Policy applies to all employee Personal Data received by LI-COR in the United States from the European Union ("EU") in any format. For the purpose of this Policy, "Personal Data" or "Personal Information" is employee data about an identified or identifiable EU Based Employee, received by LI-COR in the U.S. from the EU and recorded in any form.
LI-COR receives employee Personal Information in connection with the management and administration of pre-employment, employment and post-employment matters. LI-COR notifies EU Based Employees about the purposes for which their Personal Information is collected and used. LI-COR will use the information for business operations, employee development, administration and planning, or when required in the course of judicial or administrative proceedings, subject to all nondisclosure safeguards available. Below are listed the general categories of third parties with whom LI-COR may share this Personal Information. Notice to EU Based Employees will be provided before LI-COR uses the information for purposes other than for which it was collected, or before it discloses the information to categories of third parties not specified in this policy.
LI-COR gives its EU Based Employees the opportunity to opt out from allowing LI-COR to disclose their Personal Information to a third party or to use it for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for which it was originally collected or authorized. To exercise this opt out, an EU Based Employee should contact the European Managing Director.
With respect to sensitive data (for example, political or religious beliefs, union membership, health matters), LI-COR will not share such information unless specifically authorized by the individual EU Based Employee.
TRANSFER TO THIRD PARTIES
LI-COR may share employee data with third parties that provide certain services to LI-COR, including but not limited to outside accountants and lawyers, consultants and service providers. Prior to transferring Personal Data within the LI-COR Group, LI-COR will ensure that the protection and transfer of such Personal Data complies with the Safe Harbor Principles.
LI-COR may transfer Personal Data to a third party acting as an agent for LI-COR by having the third party enter into an agreement with LI-COR in which the third party promises to provide the same level of protection as required by the Safe Harbor Principles. If the third party agent does not comply with its privacy obligations, LI-COR will take commercially reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure of Personal Data.
LI-COR takes reasonable measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. These measures include password protection for online information systems and restricted access to Personal Data processed by the Talent Operations Department.
LI-COR does not process Personal Information in a way that is incompatible with the purposes for which it has been collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. LI-COR will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is relevant for its intended use, accurate, complete and current.
Upon request, LI-COR will provide EU Based Employees with reasonable access to Personal Information that it holds about them and will take reasonable steps to permit the employees to correct, amend, or delete any Personal Information which is inaccurate or incomplete.
An EU Based Employee who wants to have access to his or her Personal Information should provide a written request to the European Managing Director.
If a complaint regarding LI-COR's use of Personal Information is raised by an EU Based Employee, LI-COR will investigate and try to resolve any dispute. If the dispute cannot be resolved, LI-COR will participate in the dispute resolution procedures of the panel established by the European Data Protection Authorities.
Any questions or concerns regarding the use or disclosure of Personal Information should be directed to the office of the LI-COR's Chief Compliance Officer indicated below.
