This notice is adopted by: MITA Group, Inc. (“MITA Group”) and other entities which directly or indirectly are controlled by MITA Group (each, an Affiliate, with MITA Group and its Affiliates being collectively referred to as MITA Group).
MITA Group understands your concerns about the privacy of data you may submit through this MITA Group Web site. This notice provides you information about what type of information is gathered and tracked on the Web site, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.

Compliance with European Privacy Principles
EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shields
All personal data that MITA Group receives either as a data controller or data processor from the EEA and Switzerland (or accesses from the US in the EEA or Switzerland) will be processed pursuant to the applicable Privacy Shield Principles. However, MITA Group often processes customer information as data processor, without knowing the content or origin of such data. For the types of personal data and the purposes for which such data is transferred and processed, as well as the third parties with which such data may be shared, please review MITA Group’s Privacy Shield certification statement (https://www.privacyshield.gov/list). .
Access, Recourse (Dispute Resolution), Enforcement and Liability
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, MITA Group commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. European individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Private Shield policy should first contact MITA Group at:
Privacy & Compliance PO Box 9829 McLean, VA 22102-0829 (703) 402-4810 privacy@MITAgroup.com
MITA Group has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to the American Arbitration Association, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, please contact or visit the American Arbitration Association (http://go.adr.org/privacyshield.html) for more information or to file a complaint. The services of the American Arbitration Association are provided at no cost to you.
With regard to human resources data transferred from the EEA in the context of the employment relationship, MITA Group commits to cooperate with EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and comply with the advice given by such authorities. With regard to human resources data transferred from Switzerland, MITA Group commits to cooperate with the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner’s office and comply with the advice given by such office.
Finally, under certain conditions, more fully described on the Privacy Shield website, you may be entitled to invoke binding arbitration when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted.
With respect to Personal Information received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, MITA Group is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
If a third party service provider providing services on MITA Group’s behalf processes personal data from the EEA or Switzerland in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, MITA Group will be liable unless we can prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damages.
MITA Group may disclose personal data in special cases to conform to legal requirements or to respond to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements or to protect and defend our rights or property.
The information we collect
MITA Group collects two types of information about users of this Web site; "Personal Information" (including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) and non-personally identifiable and anonymous "Aggregate Information" (such as information about how many users log onto our Web site). Unless you provide it to us voluntarily or the information is collected via cookies in the manner described in this notice, MITA Group does not collect Personal Information in connection with your use of this Web site.
Please read this notice carefully to learn how you can verify the accuracy of any Personal Information we have concerning you and how you can request that MITA Group delete or update your Personal Information.
In order to accommodate your information request, we ask you to submit your name, title, company affiliation (if any), mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address. At your option, you may also provide us with the best time at which to contact you, the annual revenues of the company with which you are affiliated, the number of employees of the company you are affiliated with, and other relevant comments [if a comment field exists for the information you have requested]. By providing your personal information to MITA Group via its website, you agree to the terms of this notice and to receive communications from MITA Group.
How we use the information we collect
We will use the information you submit (a) to answer your specific inquiry; (b) at your option, to send you additional materials relating to MITA Group and services that may be of interest to you; (c) in the administration of the Web site; and (d) as otherwise described in this notice.
MITA Group may, from time to time, share your Personal Information with marketing consultants, in which case, the consultants shall be prohibited from using your Personal Information except with respect to assisting MITA Group in the sale of its services and products, and the consultants shall also be required to comply with the terms of this notice.
General - When you visit this site, information about your browser type, operating system, IP address, and the domain name from which you access this site (e.g., yahoo.com) is collected. In addition, we may collect information about your browsing behavior, such as the number of times you have visited the site, the date you visited the site, and the amount of time you spent viewing the site. In addition, MITA Group may track your response to MITA Group's advertisements, e-mails and site content, determine your ability to receive HTML-based e-mail messages, learn how many users open an e-mail and allow our service providers to compile aggregated statistics about an e-mail campaign for MITA Group. This information is used solely for our internal purposes in managing the site and improving its functionality, as well as to assist us in better targeting interactive advertising, thereby enhancing customer support and site usability. The collection of such information, whether by us or by data aggregators, is subject to the terms set forth in this notice.
Transparent GIF Files - In addition to our own cookies, we use pixels, or transparent GIF files, on our sites to help manage our online advertising and e-mail marketing. These GIF files are provided by one or more third-party service providers, based on our specification as to where they are used. The files enable our service providers to recognize a unique cookie in your Web browser, which, in turn, enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and e-mails bring you to our website and how you use the site.
Examples of the ways in which MITA Group and our third-party service providers use GIF files include:
• Tracking customer response to our advertisements, e-mails and site content. • Determining your ability to receive HTML-based e-mail messages. This capability helps us or our service providers send you e-mail in a format you can read. • Knowing how many users open an e-mail, thereby enabling our service providers to compile aggregate statistics about an e-mail campaign for us. • Allowing us to better target interactive advertising; enhancing customer support and site usability; and providing offers and promotions that we believe would be of interest to you, if you have given us permission to do so by opting-in to receive them. To conduct these or other activities, we or our service providers sometimes may link Personal Information you previously provided us (such as, for example, your name and e-mail address) to the information the GIF files provide about how you arrive at, navigate through and leave our sites.
Do Not Track
Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has not yet established universal standards for recognizable DNT signals and therefore, Crozier and the Website do not recognize DNT.
The information we disclose.
Subject to applicable law, we and our service providers (as defined below) disclose and share your personal information:
• Among MITA Group and its Affiliates; • To unaffiliated third parties that are under contract to perform services for or on behalf of MITA Group (Service Providers), and are required to uphold and maintain policies with respect to privacy and the treatment of your Personal Information (e.g., vendors hosting aspects of this web site or other vendors providing services of the nature referred to in this notice); • To a third party in connection with a proposed or actual sale, merger, or transfer of all or a portion of a business or division; and • To other persons as permitted or required by applicable law or regulation. • For credit card payments, we employ third parties to process these payments on our behalf. These third-party credit card processing parties will only have access to the personal information which you provide directly to them when you make a credit card payment. They are required under their contract with MITA Group to process this personal information securely and in accordance with the relevant privacy or data protection laws. • Any access to such information will be limited to the purposes for which such information was provided to us or our Service Providers. MITA Group, its Affiliates and Service Providers are located throughout the world. Accordingly, your Personal Information may be sent to countries which have a different level of privacy protection than the United States of America (USA) or your country of residence.

MITA Group will, at your request, provide you with details of companies and countries to which your information has been sent. MITA Group does not and will not sell your personal information.
