Security of Information
ATTCON understands that the security of the Independent Contractor’s Information is very important. ATTCON takes precautions (including administrative, technical, and physical measures) to safeguard the Independent Contractor’s Information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Although ATTCON makes good faith efforts to store Independent Contractor Information collected through the Website or Services in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, ATTCON cannot guarantee the absolute security of such Information during its transmission or its storage on ATTCON systems. ATTCON does not warrant or represent that the Independent Contractor’s Information will be protected against loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties. The Independent Contractor acknowledges and agrees that ATTCON shall not be liable in any way to compensate the Independent Contractor for any lack in security that the Independent Contractor might experience. In the event that Information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, ATTCON shall notify affected persons as required by applicable law.
Deletion of Information
The Independent Contractor may also contact ATTCON to request that ATTCON correct or delete the Independent Contractor’s Information. For the Independent Contractor’s protection, ATTCON will only implement requests with respect to Information related to the Independent Contractor (not anyone else), and ATTCON may need to verify the Independent Contractor’s identity before implementing the Independent Contractor’s request. ATTCON will comply with the Independent Contractor’s request as soon as reasonably practicable and in accordance with applicable law. ATTCON may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law.
Transfer of Information
If ATTCON should ever merge with another entity, the Independent Contractor’s Information is an ATTCON asset that ATTCON may freely transfer in connection with such merger without the Independent Contractor’s prior consent.
