Topaz International Privacy Policy

Topaz International, Ltd. is the global leader of auditing services to the corporate travel industry. We are committed to protecting the privacy of both our corporate clients and their travelers by exercising complete data confidentiality. Topaz is dedicated to the protection of data for our clients, and will not sell, distribute, release or provide any client specific data, including but not limited to traveler name, addresses, credit card numbers or any personal information.

This privacy policy has been in effect since the opening of Topaz International in 1978. Topaz International complies with the EU Privacy Shield as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries. Topaz International has certified that it adheres to the EU Privacy Shield Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement published by the U.S. Department of Commerce with respect to all such data. If there is any conflict between the policies in the privacy policy and the EU Privacy Shield Principles, the EU Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.

We have no intentions on ever transferring any personal information in entirety or partial form to any third party. As a company we never transfer any information to any third party.

As part of the comprehensive policy of these privacy standards, we provide the following promises to each of our clients:

a) Notice: If we were to collect any personal information, we will provide timely and appropriate notice describing what personal information we are collecting, how we will use it, and any third parties we will be sharing this information with. 

b) Choice: We will always give you choices about the ways we use and share your personal information, and we will respect and follow the choices you make. 

c) Relevance: While we have no intentions of collecting any information, if we do, it will only be what we fully disclose to you and what we obtain your approval to collect. 

d) Retention: While we have no plans to retain any personal information, we will communicate and mutually agree upon the time we will retain any personal information. 

e) Accuracy: We will take all appropriate steps to make sure that any information we retain is accurate, however we have no plans to retain any personal information. 

f) Access: We will provide ways to access your personal information, as required by law, so you can correct inaccuracies. 

g) Security: We will take extensive measures to protect any personal information, including but not limited to physical, technical and organizational measures, to protect from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alternation and destruction.

Topaz International uses a self-assessment approach to ensure compliance, and will resolve any dispute internally. If a complaint or dispute cannot be resolved through our internal process, Topaz has selected ICDR/AAA as our independent recourse mechanism (http://info.adr.org/safeharbor).
