Personal Data Security and Storage

All information you provide to us is stored at our third party data centers. Only authorized Blue Beyond Consulting, Inc. personnel and third party service providers are provided access to personal data, and these employees and service providers are required to treat this information as confidential.

Personal data collected by our data processor (Google Analytics), based on your interactions with our website, is stored in an encoded format optimized for performance. The processor’s data is spread across a number of physical and logical volumes for redundancy and expedient access, obfuscating it from tampering. Data from all users is distributed across a shared infrastructure of the data processor’s numerous homogeneous machines and located in its data centers. In addition, the data processor ensures secure transmission of its JavaScript libraries and measurement data.

The personal data we collect from you via direct contact and your web traffic will be transferred to, and stored by, our third party partner at their secure locations. Our third party partner, who has designed their procedures and facilities to be GDPR-compliant, have met industry standards for ISO 27001 and SOC 2 Type 2 and has certified compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. The organization allows for access, exportation, rectification, stoppage, and erasal of personal data, which can be done by request. If erasal is not requested, Blue Beyond Consulting, Inc. retains personal data, as necessary, for business relationship reasons, to protect ourselves against legal claims, analysis or record-keeping, or compliance with information management policies and schedules.

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. Unfortunately, material transmission via the internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we use strict procedures and security features, in coordination with our third-party partners, to try to prevent unauthorized access. Should a data breach occur, we will report the incident to the correct authorities, notify you and other relevant parties, and take action to remedy the situation within 72 hours.

 

Data Transfers

Our data processor holds servers around the world and your information may be processed on servers located outside of your resident country. While data protection laws vary among countries, with some providing more protection than others, our data processor applies the same protections in all instances. They also comply with certain legal frameworks that discuss data transfer, like the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks. When our data processor receives formal written complaints, they respond by contacting the person who made the complaint. They coordinate with the appropriate regulatory authorities to resolve any complaints regarding data transfer not resolved directly.

Information Access

Depending on where you are located, you may have the right, under law, to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with applicable law. Similar to above, any access request may be subject to a fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you or may be disallowed under local law.
