Data Privacy Commitment Statement

Last updated: February 2, 2022

At ATC, privacy is important to us. This privacy statement explains the personal data ATC processes, how ATC processes it and for what purposes. ATC leverages a wide range of technologies to accomplish its business objectives.

Personal data we collect

ATC may collect information through our interactions with you and the technologies we employ. The data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with ATC and the choices you make, including your privacy settings and the tools or features you use. Where technologies collect information outside of ATC’s intentions, there may be additional Privacy Statements supplied by the provider.

When you submit personal information to ATC, you are agreeing to permit ATC and its affiliates to access, store and use the information wherever ATC and its affiliates do business.

You have choices when it comes to the technology you use and the data you share. When asked to provide personal data, you may decline – with the exception of when ATC needs to collect personal data by law, or for security reasons. If required personal data is not provided, ATC will notify you. Where providing data is optional, and you choose not to share personal data, some resources may not be available for your use.

How we use personal data

ATC may use your personal information for general business purposes. Examples include but are not limited to  generating and tracking surveys, improving services, protecting the security or integrity of its websites and its business, notifying you about services, projects and/or changes that may affect you, and answering your questions. ATC retains all information for as long as needed to fulfill its business purposes and as necessary to comply with legal obligations.

Your data protection rights

The privacy, security and integrity of your information is very important to ATC. ATC uses security best practices to protect information from loss, misuse, alteration and destruction. However, security is not infallible and ATC cannot guarantee the information provided will never be obtained by unauthorized persons. To ensure ATC is securing information in accordance with best practices, ATC participates in both internal and external audits to identify vulnerabilities or opportunities for improvement within its practices.

ATC uses reasonable efforts to address concerns you may have about your personal information. If you have questions, you may email us at privacyinquiries@atcllc.com
