‍A. How we secure your PI

Producthire takes security very seriously.

We use appropriate security measures to protect the security of your PI both online and offline. These measures vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect, process and store. Please note, though, that no website or Internet transmission is completely secure, so while we strive to protect your PI, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, PI loss or a PI breach will never occur.

To learn more about the Privacy Shield program please visit the Privacy Shield website at https://www.privacyshield.gov/. With respect to PI received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, Producthire is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the United States Federal Trade Commission.

In some cases, Producthire may share your PI with its subprocessors, to the extent permitted by applicable law. Each of these subprocessors are limited to accessing or using this PI to provide our hosted services only and must provide reasonable assurances that they will appropriately safeguard any customer data provided by Producthire.

We have implemented safeguards to ensure an adequate level of data protection where your PI is transferred to countries outside the EEA, such as standard contractual clauses for the transfer of PI as approved by the European Commission (Art. 46 GDPR).

In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EEA individuals received pursuant to the Privacy Shield, Producthire is potentially liable.
