SAFE HARBOR PARTICIPATION STATEMENT
ALACRA adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles and the Frequently Asked Questions
(collectively, the "Safe Harbor Principles") established by the United
States Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Commission. Compliance
with the Safe Harbor Principles ensures that personal information shared with ALACRA
from the European Union is provided "adequate" protection. Confirmation
of ALACRA's "self-certification" and of its adherence to the Safe Harbor
Principles can be found at: http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/index.html.
As detailed above, ALACRA operates various world wide websites (the "Site(s)"),
which enable individuals to access, purchase and/or download business information
and data. When an individual user browses or accesses an ALACRA Site, ALACRA may
collect personal information. ALACRA also provides professional services to business
clients (the "Services"). For those business clients who engage ALACRA
to provide Services, ALACRA may be required, as part of its contractual obligation,
to process personal information, including personally-identifiable information,
provided to ALACRA by such business clients. In such cases, ALACRA acts merely as
a data processor.
The Safe Harbor is based on the following seven Principles:
ALACRA collects, processes, and discloses personal information in the ordinary course
of its business.
ALACRA Sites: When you browse or access an ALACRA Site, ALACRA may collect personal
information. Generally, however, you have the choice of whether to provide personal
information to ALACRA. If you do, you are prompted only for certain basic or necessary
information, such as your name, company name (if applicable(, address, e-mail address,
telephone number and credit card information (also if applicable). You will not
need to disclose and ALACRA does not collect or use any "sensitive" personal
information, such as your social security number, medical or health condition, age,
racial or ethnic origin, sex, religion, or political affiliation. ALACRA may also
collect information that you choose to include in an e-mail message to our customer
service department, your IP address, web browser and operating system information,
date and time of visits, the web pages your Internet browser visits when browsing
an ALACRA Site, and the number of hits per week or per web page.
ALACRA may use the information you provide us for the following purposes: (i) fulfillment
and tracking of orders; (ii) providing services and support; (iii) tracking of payments
and otherwise ensuring payment; (iv) assessing performance and making assessments
about future purchases; (v) performing direct marketing activities; (vi) improving
our Sites; and (vii) otherwise communicating information regarding ALACRA products
or services (where permitted by law). For information submitted using the online
job application process, ALACRA may use and disseminate this information internally
as necessary to consider your application and to contact you regarding our decision.
ALACRA also may disclose personal information as necessary in connection with the
sale or transfer of all or part of its business, where required by law, where ALACRA
believes that such disclosures are appropriate in connection with a law enforcement
request or otherwise permitted by the Safe Harbor Principles, or in order to investigate,
prevent or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud or enforce
or apply ALACRA agreements.
ALACRA Services: In certain situations, ALACRA may obtain incidental access to information,
including personal information, about its business clients' customers and other
individuals in connection with professional Services ALACRA provides to business
clients. These business clients act as the data controller for such information,
including information collected in the EU and subsequently transferred to ALACRA
in the United States. ALACRA acts as a data processor on behalf and for the sole
benefit of a particular business client and processes such data and information
solely in accordance with the applicable contract with that business client. ALACRA
does not in any manner access or use any information or data, including personally-identifiable
information of individuals, it processes pursuant to such contracts with its business
clients as part of its own business. Further, as a data processor for its clients,
ALACRA does not inform individuals about the purposes for which their personal information
is collected and used by such business clients, but rather relies on its business
clients to provide any required notices.
ALACRA Sites: When you visit an ALACRA Site, you always have a choice as to whether
you wish to provide your personal information to ALACRA. By choosing not to provide
your personal information, you can "opt out" of having any such information
(i) disclosed by ALACRA to a non-agent third party; or (ii) used by ALACRA for a
purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently
authorized by you. Please note, however, that if you choose not to provide certain
personal information to ALACRA, you may be prevented from making a purchase or taking
advantage of other features and benefits of an ALACRA Site. Also, should ALACRA
directly collect Sensitive Personal Information (as defined in the Safe Harbor Principles)
from individuals through one of its Sites, to the extent applicable and required
by the Safe Harbor Principles, ALACRA will offer individuals the choice to opt-in
to having their sensitive personal information (i) disclosed to a non-agent third
party; or (ii) used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally
ALACRA Services: When ALACRA acts as a data processor for its business clients,
ALACRA does not offer individuals a choice regarding the purposes for which their
personal information is collected and used by such business clients. ALACRA relies
on its business clients to provide and comply with any required options.
ALACRA may disclose and/or personal information to its employees, business partners,
subcontractors, consultants, and third-party service providers. ALACRA shall obtain
reasonable assurances from its employees, business partners, subcontractors, consultants,
and third-party service providers that they will treat and safeguard any personal
information shared with them in a manner consistent with this Statement.
Security is extremely important to ALACRA. Accordingly, ALACRA takes reasonable
security precautions to protect personal information it collects and processes from
loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. ALACRA
safeguards information according to established security standards and periodically
assesses new technology for improved methods of protecting information.
With regard to the ALACRA Sites, ALACRA takes reasonable measures to verify that
personal information it collects is relevant for its intended use, reliable for
its intended use, accurate, complete and current. As a data processor for business
clients, ALACRA does not typically collect, access or use the personal information
provided by its business clients, and ALACRA relies on its business clients to ensure
that personal information is relevant for the purposes for which it is used, reliable
for its intended use, accurate, complete and current.
ALACRA provides individuals from whom it directly collects information through an
ALACRA Site the opportunity to access, review and correct their own personal information,
and otherwise provides such individuals access to personal information in accordance
with the Safe Harbor Principles. Any personal information contained in the Services
provided by ALACRA to its business clients as a data processor is under the ownership
and control of the particular business client contracting the Service. ALACRA is
not authorized to access or change any such personal information, and the burden
and expense for ALACRA to identify individuals and provide access for them to correct,
amend or delete information would be disproportionate to the risks to the individuals'
privacy, and would possibly violate ALACRA's contractual obligations to its business
ALACRA will monitor and conduct periodic assessments to verify its adherence to
this Statement. ALACRA will investigate suspected infractions and will take all
appropriate action. If you have any questions, concerns or complaints regarding
ALACRA's collection or processing of personal information pursuant to this Safe
Harbor Statement, please contact our Chief Privacy Officer, by sending an e-mail
message to privacy@Alacra.com. Alternatively, you can contact our Chief Privacy

ALACRA will conduct a reasonable investigation of, and will attempt to resolve any
complaints in accordance with the principles set forth in this Statement. For complaints
that cannot be resolved between ALACRA and complainant, ALACRA agrees to cooperate
with the European Union Data Protection Authorities, participate in the dispute
resolution procedures of the panel established by the European Data Protection Authorities
to resolve disputes pursuant to the Safe Harbor Principles, and comply with advice
from such Authorities that ALACRA needs to take specific action to comply with the
Safe Harbor Principles. ALACRA also agrees to accept the jurisdiction of the U.S.
Federal Trade Commission under Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act.
ALACRA reserves the right to change this Safe Harbor Statement at any time with
or without notice in accordance with the Safe Harbor Principles. Any modified Statement
will be posted on ALACRA's Sites for public viewing.
