Disclosures & Accountability for Onward Transfers

Consistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, A&M DI may transfer personal data to third parties, including transfers from one country to another. We will only disclose an individual’s non-public personal data to third parties under one or more of the following conditions:

  • The disclosure is to a third party providing services to A&M DI, or to the individual, in connection with the operation of our business, and as consistent with the purpose for which the personal data was collected. We maintain written contracts with these third parties and require that these third parties provide at least the same level of privacy protection and security as required by the Privacy Shield Principles. To the extent provided by the Privacy Shield Principles, A&M DI remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if a third party that it engages to process personal data on its behalf does so in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, unless A&M DI proves that it is not responsible for the matter giving rise to the damage.
  • With the individual’s permission to make the disclosure.
  • Where required to the extent necessary to meet a legal obligation to which A&M DI is subject, including a lawful request by public ities and national security or law enforcement obligations and applicable law, rule, order, or regulation.
  • Where reasonably necessary for compliance or regulatory purposes, or for the establishment of legal claims.


Individuals whose personal data is covered by this Privacy Shield Notice have the right to access the personal data that A&M DI maintains about them as specified in the Privacy Shield Principles. Individuals may contact us to correct, amend or delete such personal data if it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles (except when the burden or expense of providing access, correction, amendment, or deletion would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy, or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated). Requests for access, correction, amendment or deletion should be sent to: the JAMS Privacy Shield website.

Under certain conditions, a binding arbitration option may be available to you in order to address complaints not resolved by any other means. For further information, please visit the Privacy Shield website.

A&M DI is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission with respect to all matters associated with the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks and A&M DI’s rights, practices and obligations associated therewith.
