(1) Information Covered by This Policy
This Policy covers all non-public, personal information received by us that may be used to identify you (“Personal Information”). This may include a wide variety of information depending upon the services you are set to receive. For example, this could be name and address information (real estate or household goods moving services); social security, date of birth, or other identification numbers (applications or account setup); banking information (mortgage or expense payment services); and/or passport or driver’s license information (visa & immigration services).
(2) General Data Protection Regulation Information
When we are acting at the direction of a corporate client to provide services to you as part of your relocation or assignment, then the client is responsible as the Data Controller for telling us how your Personal Information should be used and processed. Under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, VIAMAR and its family of companies are Data Processors who receive Personal Information and instructions on how to process that Personal Information from the Data Controllers. Where we act as a Data Controller for services you independently request of us (i.e. where we independently determine how any Personal Information is processed), then we manage your Personal Information according to what you have consented to and the terms of this policy. Whether acting as a Data Controller or a Data Processor, we maintain the privacy of your information and only use, share, transfer or store it as permitted.
