Mitratech has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles. The Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction over Mitratech’s compliance with the Privacy Shield.
If there is any conflict between the terms in this Privacy Notice and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.

Please mark this request as “European/Swiss Privacy Shield Request: (First name, Last name)”
Mitratech has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to alternative dispute resolution providers located within the European Union and Switzerland. Specifically, the EU Data Protection Authorities (DPA) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC). Mitratech commits to cooperate with these authorities and comply with the advice given regarding human resources data transferred from the EU and Switzerland in the context of individuals.
If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not resolved your complaint, please contact the EU Data Protection Authorities (DPA) or Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) for further information. The services of these authorities are provided at no cost to you. An individual has the possibility, under certain conditions, to invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance not resolved by any of the other Privacy Shield mechanisms.
