Data Protection Addendum and EC Standard Contractual Clauses

This Privacy Policy incorporates The European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (or “SCCs”) a copy of which can be obtained at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=celex%3A32010D0087. The SCCs are standardized contractual terms, recognized and adopted by the European Commission, with the primary purpose of ensuring that any Personal Data leaving the European Economic Area (“EEA”) will be transferred in compliance with EU data-protection law. The SCCs also incorporate the principal EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements covering access, disclosure, security and transparency of Personal Data, and sets forth a framework for U.S. companies, and EU entities working with U.S. companies, to meet the requirements of the GDPR. 

In certain cases, Swee will transfer Personal Data in accordance with the SCCs.

Swee, complies with the SCCs regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Data transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.

Both you and Swee will comply with the SCCs, so that Swee’s EU-based users can share Personal Data with Us and remain compliant with the GDPR.

We are committed to protecting Your privacy in compliance with the SCCs. EU and Swiss Individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Policy can contact us at support@swee.ai.

We work hard to promptly respond to any requests We receive regarding privacy and data protection. If You do not receive a timely acknowledgement of Your request from us, or if We have not addressed Your request to your satisfaction, You agree to refer the matter to the International Center for Dispute Resolution / American Arbitration Association (ICDR/AAA). ICDR/AAA is an independent recourse mechanism chosen by Swee. You may get more information or contact ICDR/AAA at https://www.icdr.org/about_icdr.
