Intra-Group Personal Data
The Bureau of National Affairs, Inc. and its affiliates
(“Bloomberg BNA”) are committed to compliance with their privacy obligations in
the United States and throughout the world. This Intra-Group Personal Data
Protection Statement (“Statement”) sets out the privacy principles Bloomberg
BNA follows with respect to personal information that it transfers from the
European Union, European Economic Area, and Switzerland (collectively, “EU”) to
the United States (“U.S.”).
The relevant Bloomberg BNA group companies have entered
into an Intra-Group Personal Data Protection Agreement (“IGA”) in order to
ensure that responsibility for personal information transferred from the EU to
the U.S. is clearly identified. The parties to the IGA are considered as data
controllers, or data controller and data processor under applicable law.
As relevant Bloomberg BNA companies are located in the
U.S., the group companies involved in the processing shall be known as a Data
Exporter and a Data Importer respectively, although there may be more than one
company involved in the processing of personal information.
The IGA incorporates unchanged EU Commission Standard
Contractual Clauses for controller to controller, and controller to processor
transfers, and the relevant Data Exporter and Data Importer will abide by these
EU Commission Standard Contractual Clauses where personal information is
transferred to or accessed from Bloomberg group companies in the U.S.
Questions or comments regarding this Statement should be
submitted to email@example.com.
