Axiom further certifies that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Privacy Principles (the "Principles") of 1) Notice; 2) Choice; 3) Accountability for Onward Transfer; 4) Security; 5) Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation; 6) Access, and 7) Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability.

The information Axiom collects falls into three primary categories: non-personally identifiable information, personally identifiable information, and sensitive personally identifiable information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that cannot alone be used to identify or contact you. A primary source of such information includes browser information when you are using our websites. Website log files and Third Party scripts collect information that may include IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referral / exit pages, pages viewed, date & time stamps, and other similar information. Log files and Third Party scripts may also collect general demographic information. We use these log files and Third Party scripts to help us analyze traffic patterns & site usage, understand audiences, as well as improve our sites and services.
Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") is information that can be used to identify or contact you. Such information might include your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, company, title, site username or site password.
PII may be collected when you apply for an employment opportunity on our site, establish a user account for use with our services, register for an event, complete a survey, inquire about employment, correspond with us, or inquire about our service offerings.
Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information is Personal Identifiable Information specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information specifying the sex life of an individual.
Such information is only collected in the context of an employment relationship as 1) required by law (e.g. equal opportunity / anti-discrimination statutes) or 2) for employment purposes (e.g. offering of benefits).
Axiom is the sole owner of the information collected through its marketing, recruitment, sales, and other commercial activities. In these activities, we only have access to and collect Personal Information that 1) you voluntarily provide us or that 2) we acquire through third-party sources such as business intelligence platforms. We will not sell or rent to anyone the information provided to us or obtained by us.
You may opt-out of communications at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link provided in an email or by sending a request to email@example.com.
Axiom is the sole owner of Personal Information collected from its employees in the context of employment relationships. In this context, the data collected is solely used for employment-related purposes.
When Personal Information collected is no longer needed for the purpose(s) for which it was collected and Axiom no longer is required to retain this information by law or policy, the information will be deleted or destroyed.
In connection with the services provided by Axiom professionals to clients, Axiom may receive, store, and/or process Personal Information on behalf of our customers and partners within the context of the services. In such cases, we are acting as a data processor and will process such personal information on behalf of and under the specific direction of our client and their agents. Axiom does not own this Personal Information or use it for its own commercial purposes.
In achievement of internal business operations, Axiom discloses Personal Information only to Third Parties who reasonably need to know such data in accomplishment of a contracted task or Axiom business purpose. For example, the electronic billing of clients or processing of benefits/payroll through third-party providers.
Recipients must agree to abide by contractual obligations established 1) restricting use of information to Axiom instructed/specified purposes, 2) securing the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of the information whilst in their possession, and 3) returning & purging information upon termination of contract. Axiom will ensure that the same or a better level of protection as Axiom provides is afforded to Personal Information by contracted third-parties throughout the defined term during which a third-party is contracted. Third-parties are not permitted to use Personal Information except for the purpose of providing contracted services.
Axiom may also disclose your personally identifying information in the following circumstances:

Axiom has designated that the Leadership Committee of its Information Security Management System (ISMS) oversee its information security program including its compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss Safe Harbor programs. The Leadership committee will review and approve any material changes to this program as necessary.
Axiom will maintain, monitor, test, and improve information security policies, practices, and systems to protect Personal Information that it collects. Axiom team members and contractors will receive role-specific training to effectively implement this policy.
To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to allow only the appropriate use of your Personal Information, we utilize industry standard physical, technical, and administrative controls to safeguard the information we collect and process.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect access, storage, and transmission of Personal Information submitted to or acquired by us. Axiom’s Information Security policies define acceptable use, protocols for access & authorization, and appropriate safeguards around information through information’s lifecycle (i.e. collection/acquisition through destruction).
Axiom team members and contractors may access and use Personal Information only if they are authorized to do so and only for the purposes for which they are authorized.
With the exception of legally privileged, client materials for which Axiom is operating as a contracted data processor, you as a Data Subject have the right to 1) know what Personal Information has been collected and stored within Axiom’s information systems about you and 2) ensure that this Personal Information is accurate and relevant for the purposes for which Axiom has collected it.
Upon reasonable written request directed to firstname.lastname@example.org, you may 1) review your Personal Information, 2) request modification/correction of any data that it is incorrect, or 3) request removal/inactivation of Person Data as permitted by applicable law and Axiom policies.
Such updates will not have an effect on other information that we maintain, or information that we have provided to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Statement before such update.
To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity, before granting access to your Personal Information. In addition, we may limit or deny access to Personal Information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or expensive in the circumstances.
Axiom will endeavor to respond to all reasonable written requests of individuals to view, modify, or remove/inactivate Personal Information within 30 days of the original request.
Axiom will record 1) legally binding requests for disclosure of Personal Information by law enforcement authorities unless prohibited by law or regulation as well as 2) requests received from Data Subjects.
In the context of employment relationships, Axiom will make reasonable efforts to accommodate employee privacy preferences.
This Policy may be amended from time to time, consistent with 1) EU-US Privacy Shield Principles and 2) other data protection and privacy laws/principles applicable in the regulatory jurisdictions in which Axiom conducts business. Updates will be posted on this page.
Axiom team members and contractors will be notified of changes to the policy through email and through other internal communication mediums.
We will notify Candidates, Team Members, and Customers if we make changes that materially affect the manner in which we handle Personal Information previously collected. In such cases, we will allow those impacted to choose whether their Personal Information may be used in the proposed materially different manner.
Axiom commits to cooperate with EU, Swiss, Hong Kong and Singapore data protection authorities (DPAs) and comply with the direction given by such authorities with regard to information transferred from the EU or other countries.
In compliance with the US-EU Privacy Shield Principles, Axiom commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection/use of your personal information. EU or Swiss individuals with questions or concerns about the use of their Personal Information should contact us at: email@example.com
