Our participation in the Privacy Shield applies to personal data that Nexar Inc. receives from and processes on behalf of any member of the Nexar Group, and any customers, business partners, suppliers, employees or candidates of the Nexar Group, that reside in the EU or Switzerland.
2. Data Subject Rights
EU and Swiss data subjects have the right to access personal data about them, and in some cases to limit use and disclosure of their personal data.

If your request pertains to data processed on behalf of another member of the Nexar Group, we will refer your request to them, and will support them as needed in responding to your request.
3. Onward Transfers and Personal Data
To the extent that we rely on the Privacy Shield framework to facilitate the lawful transfer of personal data originating in the EU or Switzerland to third-parties, we will enter into a written agreement with such third-parties requiring them to provide at least the same level of privacy protection to such personal data as required by the Privacy Shield Principles. In cases of such onward transfer, Nexar Inc. remains responsible and potentially liable, other than for events outside of its reasonable control.
Such third-parties include selected companies and individuals that we have engaged to provide us with services complementary to our own. These include cloud data hosting and delivery services, data and cyber security services, web analytics, content distribution and monitoring services, session or activity recording services, performance measurement, support and customer relation management systems, and our business, legal, financial and compliance advisors.
We may also engage in data transfers internally within the Nexar Group, for the provision of our services. In addition, should Nexar Inc. or any member of the Nexar Group undergo any change in control or ownership, including by means of merger, acquisition or purchase of substantially all or part of its assets, or will be considered or found eligible for a governmental grant and/or a potential investment, then personal data may be shared with the parties involved in such an event. We may also share personal data with others if we believe in good faith that this will help protect the rights, property or personal safety of Nexar Group members, any of our customers, partners or users, or any members of the general public.
