This Policy sets forth the privacy principles that Company follows when processing Personal Data received from customers or prospective customers located in the EEA, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom (UK) while providing services from the United States (U.S.).

Defined Terms

Capitalized terms in this Privacy Policy have the following meanings:

Right to Access, Change or Delete Personal Data

Upon reasonable request, and to the extent the request does not compromise the protections set forth in this Policy, Company allows EEA, UK and Swiss Data Subjects reasonable access, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, to their Personal Data that Company may maintain. Individuals may request that Company correct, amend or delete such data where it is inaccurate. Company will grant such requests, except where doing so would cause unreasonable burden or expense, or pose a risk to such individual’s privacy.

If a Data Subject wishes to access, change, or delete their Personal Data held by Company, requests should be sent to the Company’s Privacy Official at:

ComPsych Corporation,
455 N. Cityfront Plaza Drive, 13th Floor,
Chicago, IL 60611, U.S.A.,
Attn: Privacy Official

or via email at:

Company will endeavor to respond in a timely manner to all reasonable requests.

Right to Opt-out/Opt-in

Data Subjects have the right to opt-out of:

(1) any transfer of their Personal Data to a Third Party not identified at the time of collection or subsequently authorized; and

(2) uses of Personal Data for a materially different purpose from the purpose for which it was originally collected.

Sensitive Data

Data Subjects have the right to opt-in to allow collection of Sensitive Data. Except as stated otherwise herein, Company does not process or disclose Sensitive Data to Third Parties without the express consent of Data Subjects. Further, Company does not use Sensitive Data for any purpose other than (i) for the purpose for which it was originally provided by the Data Subject, (ii) for a purpose later expressly consented to by the Data Subject, or (iii) for an exception expressly noted below.

Notwithstanding the above, Company may use or disclose Sensitive Data (and other Personal Data) without prior express consent where such disclosure or use: (a) is in the vital interests of the Data Subject or another person; (b) is necessary for the establishment of legal claims or defenses, to obtain legal advice, or for the purposes of establishing, exercising or defending Company’s legal rights; (c) is required to provide behavioral and medical care or diagnosis; (d) is necessary to carry out Company’s obligations under applicable employment, workers’ compensation, public health or other laws; (e) is necessary for specified public health activities and purposes; (f) is data manifestly made public by the Data Subject; (g) is required by law enforcement officials or public authorities in response to a lawful request made pursuant to national security interests or law enforcement requirements; or (h) as otherwise required or permitted by law.

If a Data Subject wishes to exercise their rights under this section, requests should be sent to the Company’s Privacy Official at:

ComPsych Corporation,
455 N. Cityfront Plaza Drive, 13th Floor,
Chicago, IL 60611, U.S.A.,
Attn: Privacy Official

or via email at:

Company will endeavor to respond in a timely manner to all reasonable requests.

Confidentiality and Security of Personal Data

Company maintains reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards designed to secure Data Subjects’ Personal and Sensitive Data, and to prevent unauthorized access to such information. For example, all customer communication and files in digital format are stored on a secure network, accessible only by approved staff. All critical systems and servers are separately housed within Company's secure facilities and are accessible only by authorized personnel. Company takes precautions to protect personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Company periodically performs network backups; all backup files are stored offsite and are handled by authorized personnel only.

Despite these precautions, however, no data security safeguards are foolproof. Identity thieves, hackers and other unauthorized individuals may find ways to obtain Personal Data. Although this is unlikely, if Company learns that any Personal Data was obtained without authorization and there is a risk of fraud or identity theft, Company will notify the affected Data Subject(s) and take steps to mitigate harm.

Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation

Company will limit the collection of Personal Data to that which is necessary to provide services and compatible purposes. Company will use reasonable efforts to maintain the accuracy and integrity of any Personal Data it receives and update it as appropriate. Personal Data is retained only for as long as is necessary to provide services or for compatible purposes, such as to provide additional Services, to comply with legal requirements, or to preserve or defend Company’s legal rights.

Onward Transfers of Personal Data

Except as otherwise provided herein, Company discloses Personal Data only to those Third Parties who reasonably need to know such data for a legitimate business purpose, such as those who are engaged by us to provide a Data Subject with services. Such recipients must agree to abide by confidentiality obligations consistent with the DPF Principles.

Company may also provide Personal Data to Third Parties who act as agents to perform tasks on behalf of and under the instructions of Company. Such Third Parties must agree to: (1) use such Personal Data only for the purposes for which they have been engaged by Company and they must either: (a) comply with the DPF Principles for transfers and processing of Personal Data; or (b) agree to provide adequate protections for Personal Data that are no less protective than those set out in this Policy, and (2) notify ComPsych if the Third Party is no longer able to provide the required protections. Company may allow exceptions to this policy, permitting Personal Data to be disclosed, when a Data Subject has consented to the disclosure.

If Company learns that one of its data processors/service providers is using or disclosing Personal Data in a manner contrary to this Policy, Company will take necessary steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure. Company acknowledges its potential liability in cases of its onward transfer of Personal Data to third parties that do not meet the criteria set forth in the immediately preceding paragraph.

Company is required to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful request by public authorities, which enforcement authority has jurisdiction over Company’s compliance with the DPF Principles.

Recourse, Enforcement & Liability

In compliance with the DPF Principles, ComPsych commits to resolve complaints about a Data Subject’s privacy and Company’s collection or use of Personal Data transferred to the United States pursuant to this Policy.

Individuals in the EEA, UK or Switzerland with DPF inquiries or complaints should first contact Company’s Privacy Official at: ComPsych Corporation, 455 N. Cityfront Plaza Drive, 13th Floor, Chicago, IL 60611, USA Attn: Privacy Official or

Company has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the DPF Principles to the American Arbitration Association, a non-profit alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit for more information and to file a complaint.
