Prior to the re-certification, ABC Family Law will conduct an in-house verification to ensure that its attestations and assertions with regard to its treatment of Customer Personal Data are accurate and that the company has appropriately implemented these practices. Specifically, as part of the verification process, ABC Family Law will undertake the following:

4. COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA
ABC Family Law provides various solutions to its Customers, which are predominantly business Customers, and collects some Personal Data from Customers when they purchase our services, log in to their account, request information from ABC Family Law, or otherwise communicate with ABC Family Law. For example, ABC Family Law’s Customers may choose to seek live support or request transactional data concerning a chargeback or the associated customer to a transaction where a chargeback has occurred.
The Personal Data that ABC Family Law collects may vary based on the Customers and their specific request for services. As a general matter, ABC Family Law may collect the following types of Personal Data from its Customers: contact information, including, a contact person's name, work email address, work mailing address, work telephone number, title, and company name, as well as payment information (which might include credit card and/or bank account information). Customers have the option to log in to their accounts online and ABC Family Law will collect information that Customers choose to provide to ABC Family Law through these portals.
ABC Family Law serves as a service provider to its Customers. In our capacity as a service provider, ABC Family Law will receive, store, and/or process Personal Data owned and/or controlled by our Customers, including information about their employees, clients, customers, agents, or other individuals. In such cases, ABC Family Law is acting as a data processor and will process the personal information on behalf of and under the direction of each Customer. The information collected from ABC Family Law’s Customers in this capacity is used for managing transactions, reporting, invoicing, renewals, other operations related to providing services to the Customer, and as otherwise requested by the Customer.
5. DISCLOSURES / ONWARD TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA
Except as otherwise provided herein, ABC Family Law discloses Personal Data only to a Third Party who reasonably need to know such data. Such recipients must agree to abide by confidentiality obligations. ABC Family Law provides, upon request, Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreements for its Customers, which may be tailored based upon Customer’s individual business needs, as a means to control and limit the disclosure of Customer Personal Data.
ABC Family Law may provide Personal Data to a Third Party that act as agents, consultants, and contractors to perform tasks on behalf of and under our instructions. For example, ABC Family Law may store such Personal Data in the facilities operated by a Third Party. Such Third Party must agree to use such Personal Data only for the purposes for which they have been engaged by ABC Family Law and they must either: (1) comply with the Privacy Shield principles or another mechanism permitted by the applicable European data protection law(s) for transfers and processing of Personal Data; or (2) agree to provide adequate protections for the Personal Data that are no less protective than those set out in this Policy. ABC Family Law also may disclose Personal Data for other purposes or to another Third Party when a Data Subject has consented to or requested such disclosure. In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of E.U. or Swiss individuals, received pursuant to the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, ABC Family Law is potentially liable.
6. DATA INTEGRITY AND SECURITY
ABC Family Law uses reasonable efforts to maintain the accuracy and integrity of Personal Data and to update it as appropriate. ABC Family Law has implemented physical and technical safeguards to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. For example, electronically-stored Personal Data is stored on a secure network with firewall protection, and access to ABC Family Law's electronic information systems requires user authentication via password or similar means. ABC Family Law also employs access restrictions, limiting the scope of Employees who have access to Customer Personal Data. Further, ABC Family Law uses secure encryption technology to protect certain categories of Personal Data. Despite these precautions, no data security safeguards can guarantee absolute security all of the time, and as such ABC Family Law does not make any such guarantee.
