Unless prohibited by applicable law, we reserve the right to transfer the information we maintain in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (or during the negotiations of any of such sale or transfer). If we engage in such a sale or transfer (or related negotiations), we will – where required by applicable law – make reasonable efforts to direct the recipient to use the personal information we provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice. After such a sale or transfer, individuals may contact the recipient with any inquiries concerning the processing of their personal information.

Our retention periods for personal information are based on business needs and legal requirements. We retain personal information only for as long as is necessary to fulfill the processing purpose(s) for which the information was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose, depending on the purpose(s) for which the information was collected, the nature of the information, any contractual relationship that may govern the retention of the data, and our legal or regulatory obligations.

International Data Transfers

We collect certain information directly from you, including via our mobile apps and website.  We are headquartered in the United States, so this information comes directly to us in the United States, from wherever you are based.  We will apply the same data protection measures to the data we collect directly from you that we deploy inside the EEA and the UK  to ensure that your data is kept secure.  We may otherwise transfer personal information to CQ Hotels parent entities, and subsidiaries and third parties located in countries other than the country in which the data was originally collected for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. The countries to which we transfer personal information may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which we initially collected the information. If we transfer personal information of a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA) outside of the EEA, or of a resident of the United Kingdom outside of the UK, we will implement appropriate safeguards in accordance with applicable law to ensure that your data is kept secure.

Data Privacy Framework

Shared Mutual Services, LLC and Shared Operating Services, LLC (collectively, “we,” or “us”) comply with the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework and the UK Extension of the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, and the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Frameworks (collectively, the “Data Privacy Framework”) as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union, United Kingdom, and Switzerland to us in the United States. We have certified to the Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Data Privacy Framework Principles (described below). If there is any conflict between the policies in this Privacy Notice and the Data Privacy Framework Principles, the Data Privacy Framework Principles shall govern.

Accountability for Onward Transfers. We may be accountable for the personal information that we transfer to third-party service providers (described in the “Personal Information We Disclose” section of this Privacy Notice). We maintain contracts with our third-party service providers restricting their access, use, and disclosure of personal information in compliance with our obligations under the Data Privacy Framework. If such service providers process personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Data Privacy Framework Principles, we are responsible for the harm caused.

Security. We maintain security measures to protect personal information as described in the “How We Protect Personal Information” section of this Privacy Notice.

Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation. We take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is reliable for its intended use, and that it is accurate, complete and current for as long as we retain it.

Please see the “Privacy Preferences, Rights and Choices” section of this Privacy Notice for more information on the rights of individuals in the EEA, UK, and Switzerland.

Sensitive Data. We provide individuals with an opt-out choice, or opt-in for sensitive data, before we share their personal information with third parties other than our agents, or before we use it for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized. To request to limit our use and disclosure of your personal information, please submit a request as set out in the “Privacy Preferences, Rights and Choices section” of this Privacy Notice or by written request to legal@clubquarters.com.
