Alps Agility Limited, together with its affiliates, Alps Agility Inc is committed to conducting its business in accordance with all applicable data protection laws and regulations and in line with the highest standards of ethical conduct.
This policy sets forth the expected behaviours of Alps Agility employees, vendors, and third parties in relation to the collection, use, retention, transfer, disclosure, and destruction of any personal data belonging to a Alps Agility contact (i.e., the data subject).
Personal data is any information (including opinions and intentions, whether true or not) that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. Personal data is subject to certain legal safeguards and other regulations, which impose restrictions on how organizations may process personal data. An organization that handles personal data and makes decisions about its use is known as a data controller. Alps Agility is responsible for ensuring compliance with the data protection requirements outlined in this policy. Non-compliance may expose Alps Agility to complaints, regulatory action, fines, and/or reputational damage.
Alps Agility’s leadership is fully committed to ensuring continued and effective implementation of this policy and expects all Alps Agility employees and third parties to share in this commitment. Any breach or violation of this policy shall be taken seriously and may result in disciplinary action or business sanction.
