Inquiries, Complaints and your Rights
If you have any questions about this Data Privacy Framework Statement or wish to make a complaint, we encourage you to contact us at [email protected].

Information on how to contact JAMS is available at https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-data-privacy-framework. Under certain conditions, as further explained in the Data Privacy Framework Principles, you may be entitled to invoke binding arbitration when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted, but prior to initiating such arbitration, you must: (1) contact Forter and afford us the opportunity to resolve the issue; (2) seek assistance from Forter’s designated independent recourse mechanism above; and (3) contact the U.S. Department of Commerce (either directly or through a European Data Protection Authority, the UK ICO or the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner) and afford the Department of Commerce time to attempt to resolve the issue. Forter is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

If you wish to exercise any of the aforementioned rights, please contact us at [email protected]. We will respond within the timeframes required under applicable law. When handling your request, we may need to request additional information from you (which may include personal data) to help us confirm your identity.
