Privacy Shield Statement
The EU has established strict protections regarding the handling of EU Personal Data, including requirements to provide adequate protection for EU Personal Data transferred outside of the EU. To provide adequate protection for certain EU Personal Data relating to website visitors, customers, prospective customers, partners, vendors, third party suppliers and contractors that CGI receives in the U.S., CGI has elected to self-certify to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Privacy Shield”). For more information about the Privacy Shield, see the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield website located at https://www.privacyshield.gov.
Types of EU Personal Data Collected
CGI may collect EU Personal Data (i) from individuals who visit our website and voluntarily provide their information, and (ii) from our customers, vendors, contractors and agents, including: (i) contact information, including name, address, email address and phone number, (ii) Health or medical treatment-related information, (iii) Identification information, and (iv) Financial information.
Purposes of UE Personal Data Collection and Use
CGI may collect, use and process EU Personal Data for the purposes of (i) Providing products, services and support to our customers, (ii) Communicating with business partners, vendors, agents and contractors about business matters, (iii) Analysis of information in order to improve business practices, products and services, (iv) Conducting related tasks for legitimate business purposes, and (v) Other purposes disclosed at the time of collection.
CGI will only process EU Personal Data in ways that are compatible with the purpose for which CGI collected the EU Personal Data, or for purposes that the individual or entity providing the EU Personal Data later authorizes.
Data Transfers to Third Parties
CGI may transfer EU Personal Data to our third party agents or service providers that perform functions on the Company’s behalf. Where required by the Privacy Shield, CGI enters into written agreements with those third party agents and service providers requiring them to provide the same level of protection that the Privacy Shield requires and limiting their use of the data to the specified services provided on our behalf. CGI takes reasonable and appropriate steps (i) to ensure that third party agents and service providers process EU Personal Data in accordance with our Privacy Shield obligations and (ii) to stop and remediate any unauthorized processing.
Third Party Data Controllers
In some cases, CGI may transfer EU Personal Data to unaffiliated third party data controllers. These third parties do not act as agents or service providers and are not performing functions on the Company’s behalf. CGI may transfer EU Personal Data to third party data controllers to facilitate provision of services to CGI customers.
CGI complies with the Notice and Choice Principles. CGI will only provide EU Personal Data to third party data controllers where the individual has not opted-out of such disclosures. CGI also limits third party use of Personal Data so that such use is consistent with any consent the individual has provided and with the notices the individual has received. CGI enters into written contracts with any unaffiliated third party data controllers providing that any such data may only be processed for limited and specific purposes consistent with the consent provided by the individual, and requiring third party controllers to provide the same level of protection for EU Personal Data that the Privacy Shield requires. Third party controllers shall be required to notify CGI in the case that they can no longer meet these contractual obligations; and, upon such notification, the third party controller will cease processing Personal Data or take other reasonable and appropriate steps to remediate.
If CGI transfers EU Personal Data to one of the Company’s affiliated entities within our corporate group, CGI will take steps to ensure that EU Personal Data is only processed for limited and specific purposes consistent with the consent provided by the individual, and is protected with the same level of protection that the Privacy Shield Principles require. CGI will take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that the affiliate entity effectively processes the Personal Data in a manner consistent with CGI’s obligations under the Privacy Shield Principles. Any affiliated entity must notify CGI in the event that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide this level of protection of Personal Data, and, in such case, will take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized data processing. CGI will provide a summary or a representative copy of the privacy provisions of its contract with an affiliated entity to the US Department of Commerce upon request.
Disclosures for National Security or Law Enforcement
Under certain circumstances, CGI may be required to disclose your EU Personal Data in response to valid requests by public authorities or to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
CGI maintains reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect EU Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction in accordance with the Privacy Shield.
An individual may have the right to access the EU Personal Data that CGI maintains about them and to request that CGI correct, amend, or delete such information if it is inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances, or where it would violate the rights of someone other than the individual requesting access. If you would like to request access to, correction, amendment, or deletion of your EU Personal Data, you can submit a written request to the contact information provided below. CGI may request specific information from you to confirm your identity, and in some circumstances, may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information.

You can direct any questions or complaints about the use or disclosure of your EU Personal Data to us as noted below (Contact Us). CGI will investigate and attempt to resolve any complaints or disputes regarding the use or disclosure of your EU Personal Data within 45 days of receiving your complaint. If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm. The services of EU DPAs are provided at no cost to you.
