We offer individuals the opportunity to opt-out of disclosures of Personal Data to a third party or the use of Personal Data for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
We will comply with the Privacy Shield Principles with respect to disclosures of sensitive data including, when applicable, obtaining the explicit consent (i.e., opt-in consent by way of our Customers) of the individual prior to disclosing Sensitive Personal Data to a third party or using Sensitive Personal Data for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
Accountability for Onward Transfers of Personal Data to Third Parties
We may be responsible for onward transfers of personal information to third parties, such as when third parties act as agents on our behalf to process personal information. Qumulex uses a limited number of third-party service providers to assist us in providing our Services to Customers. These third parties may access, process, or store Personal Data in the course of providing their services. Qumulex maintains contracts with these third parties to ensure that they provide the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Privacy Shield principles and to restrict their access, use and disclosure of Personal Data in compliance with our Privacy Shield obligations.
We also transfer Personal Data to our third-party agents, such as infrastructure as a service providers and vulnerability testing providers.
Right to Access Personal Data
Qumulex recognizes that individuals from E.U. member countries have the right to access their Personal Data, and to limit use and disclosure of their Personal Data and Qumulex is committed to respect such rights. Individuals also have the right to obtain our confirmation of whether we maintain Personal Data relating to them.

The right to access such Personal Data may be restricted in exceptional circumstances, including, but not limited to, when the burden or expense of providing this access would be disproportionate to the risks to privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of other persons would be violated by the provision of such access. If Qumulex determines that access should be restricted in a particular instance, we will provide an explanation of our determination and respond to any inquiries.
