NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES
6 Degrees Privacy Consulting, LLC
Our Privacy Principles:
At 6 Degrees Privacy Consulting, LLC (“6 Degrees”), we believe the privacy of clients’ personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) is important. Our business practices demonstrate our belief that less is more–collecting and using less of your personal information allows us to focus more on our mission, which is to provide world class data privacy consulting services. Put simply, if we don’t need Personal Information to deliver our services, we don’t ask for it, use it, store it or share it. Please see below for a few more details, and let us know if you have questions.
Personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) is generally information or data that can be used to uniquely identify a specific individual. Some examples include name, phone number, mailing or email address, social security number, personal financial information, geolocation data or date of birth.
We will ask you to provide Personal Information (ie, phone number/mailing address/email) so that we can contact you, send you information, deliver work and bill you for our services.
Types of Personal Information We Collect and How We Collect It:
We collect only as much Personal Information as we need to provide our services, and nothing more. We collect this information from you electronically, via phone and in-person. This may include some or all of the following:
- Contact information, such as name, phone number(s), email addresses and mailing addresses (business and/or personal)
- Personal Information contained in electronic or physical documents, or verbally discussed during project planning and execution.
Generally we accept checks and electronic payments as compensation for our services. We do not retain payment information for later use, and we do not share it with others.
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13. If we become aware that we have mistakenly collected such information, we will delete the information as soon as possible. We use web analytics on our website, which track visitor website activity such as IP addresses.
Use of Personal Information:
We use your Personal Information to complete the work we have agreed upon and to communicate with you. We may also use your Personal Information to contact you about additional services, to respond to your inquiries, to seek your feedback on the quality of our work or to request a reference. If you prefer not to be contacted, you may opt out anytime by clicking here.
We may also track website activity and security using third party data provided by website development tools and data security providers.
Transfer of Personal Information:
We will only share your Personal Information with third parties who assist us in providing our services, such as third party vendors, if engaged by 6 Degrees on your project. Our third party service providers, such as Internet Service Providers (“ISP’s”), email service providers, cell service providers, website security and analytics providers, etc. may have access to any Personal Information we transmit or receive via their services. We do not share Personal Information with third parties for other reasons without your consent.
We will share your Personal Information if we are required to do so by law, legal process, litigation and/or requests from public or government authorities. We may also disclose your Personal Information if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to assist with law enforcement, national security or other issues of public importance.
If we need to enforce our agreement with you and/or collect unpaid fees, we may disclose your Personal Information for those purposes. If we sell or transfer our business, we may also transfer the Personal Information we have collected to the appropriate third party.
Access to Personal Information:
You may contact us to request that we correct, complete, update or delete your Personal Information.
Retention of Personal Information:
We do not retain your Personal Information longer than necessary to meet the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. We may retain the Personal Information we have collected to maintain your account as a client or future client (ie, your contact information and project data), unless you contact us to request that we delete some or all of your data.
Protection of Personal Information:
We protect your Personal Information against loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction using physical, technical and administrative processes. These measures include:
- Backing up computer files to a local or external computer drive, and/or using third party online backup and security services.
- Hard copy Personal Information is stored in client files located in the 6 Degrees office, and locked as needed for security.
Changes to this Notice:
We may periodically update this Privacy Notice, and the updated Notice will be posted on our website at www.6degreesprivacy.com.
