NUSOURCE FINANCIAL PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION PRINCIPLES
NuSource Financial recognizes that appropriate protection and management of personal data is a critical element in enabling consumers to realize the potential of global electronic commerce. NuSource Financial also recognizes that its long tradition of protecting employee personal data is encountering new challenges as its personnel databases and systems become increasingly electronic and global.
NuSource Financial has therefore adopted the following privacy principles for the protection of consumer and employee personal data. (Personal data is defined as any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual.) NuSource Financial will follow these principles, consistent with applicable local laws, in all its operations globally.
Providing Information on Data Protection Policies: NuSource Financial will provide consumers and employees with easily understood information about NuSource Financial’s policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data.
Limiting Data Collection and Use: NuSource Financial will limit the collection and use of personal data to that which is needed for valid business purposes or to comply with local law, and any such data will be obtained only by lawful and fair means.
Ensuring Data Accuracy: NuSource Financial will strive to maintain the accuracy of the personal data held, including establishing, as appropriate, mechanisms allowing consumers and employees to have the opportunity to review and correct their personal data.
Enabling Informed Choice: NuSource Financial will furnish consumers and employees with information on the intended use of personal data, and with mechanisms permitting the exercise of choice on its disclosure. More specifically: Consumers — NuSource Financial will not release personal data to unaffiliated third parties, unless (1) the consumer requests it; (2) the data is provided to help complete a consumer-initiated transaction; (3) the disclosure is required by law; or (4) the consumer has been informed about the possibility of such disclosure and has decided not to opt out. Employees – NuSource Financial will not release personal data to unaffiliated third parties, except and only as specifically provided for, under internal corporate management policies. If employee or consumer personal data is provided to an affiliated third party (e.g., contractors and partners), NuSource Financial will require the third party to adhere to similar data protection principles that provide for keeping such data confidential.
Safeguarding Security: NuSource Financial will take appropriate steps to ensure that personal data is protected from unauthorized access and disclosure, including limiting access to such data only to those employees with a business need to know.
Adapting Privacy Practices to Electronic and Online Technologies: NuSource Financial will apply these principles via practices that have the equivalent effect regardless of the specific technologies employed for data collection and use. Consumers and employees should have a reasonably consistent expectation of privacy in both electronic and paper-based environments.
