For information collected from residents of EU member states and residents of Switzerland, FactSet complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework, as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union and Switzerland. FactSet has certified that we adhere to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement.

I. Notice. FactSet will notify you about the purposes for which it collects and uses your personal information. You may contact FactSet’s compliance officer using the contact information provided below with any inquiries or complaints or to request information about the types of third parties to which we may disclose your personal information and the choices and means we offer for limiting use and disclosure of your personal information.
II. Choice. If you do not want your personal information to be disclosed to third parties, you may choose to prohibit disclosure of your personal information unless disclosure of your personal information is required by law or legal process or necessary to provide services to you. We will not disclose your sensitive personal information unless you specifically authorize us to do so.
III. Onward Transfer. FactSet will only transfer your personal information (i) as required by applicable law or regulation, including pursuant to a valid court or governmental order or subpoena; and (ii) to those representatives of FactSet, such as FactSet’s affiliates, employees, subcontractors, and vendors, (collectively, “Representatives”), who have a need to access your personal information for purposes of providing services to FactSet or to you. When FactSet transfers personal information to one of our Representatives, we will ensure that the Representative (1) subscribes to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles, (2) is subject to the EU Data Protection Directive or another equivalent EU or Swiss finding (as applicable) that its privacy practices are adequate, or (3) enters into a written agreement with FactSet requiring that the third party provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles.
IV. Access. FactSet will enable you to access your Personal Information held by FactSet and you will be able to correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate, except (1) where the burden or expenses of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy in the case in question, or (2) where the rights of persons other than you would be violated.
