Safe harbor policy

Last updated on August 21, 2012


The U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission established the Safe Harbor Framework to ensure the privacy and security of personal data that is created in EU member countries. This Framework assures predictability for those EU organizations that transmit personal data to the United States.

Affirmative Commitment to Adhere

In accordance with our commitment to protect personal privacy, Logik adheres to the principles of the Safe Harbor Framework as developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Commission. The seven principles and fifteen Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) referred to in this policy constitute the Safe Harbor privacy framework.

Notice and Choice

Logik does not collect and use data provided directly by individuals in the EU. Logik may, however, receive data containing personal information from client organizations in the EEA for the purposes of electronic discovery (“eDiscovery”) processing. Consistent with and to the extent anticipated by the Safe Harbor Agreement, Logik reserves the right to process personal data in the course of providing eDiscovery services to our customers located in the EEA. As provided in the Safe Harbor Agreement FAQ 1, Logik may opt not to obtain explicit consent from the individuals whose personal data is being processed in the event that eDiscovery data processing is necessary for the establishment of legal claims or defenses, and in the event that the processing is related to data that are made public by the individual.

Onward Transfers – Disclosures to Third Parties

Logik does not disclose the personal data of EU individuals to third-party entities, except for circumstances in which one or more of the following conditions apply:

  • The individual has granted permission for the transfer of his or her data to the third party;
  • The disclosure is required for the purpose of meeting applicable law or professional standards;
  • The information in question is publicly available;
  • The disclosure is reasonably necessary for the establishment or defense of legal claims;
  • The transferee is a third-party acting as an agent, and that third-party subscribes to the Principles or is subject to an adequacy finding or enters into a written agreement requiring that third-party to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the relevant Principles.

Data Security

In the interests of protecting your privacy and security, Logik has implemented appropriate precautions to protect personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Logik protects your security through the use of both electronic and procedural safeguards.

Data Integrity

The data processed by Logik is relevant for the purposes for which it is to be used, it is processed in a manner compatible with the purposes for which it has been collected or in a manner subsequently authorized by the individual. Accordingly, Logik takes reasonable steps to ensure that the data it processes for the purposes of eDiscovery is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.

Access and Correction

Within the limitations anticipated by the Safe Harbor Framework (see Safe Harbor FAQ 8), upon written request Logik will provide EU individuals with reasonable access to personal information about them for the purposes of allowing individuals to correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate.


Logik has adopted internal mechanisms of self-assessment to verify ongoing compliance with this statement of its privacy policy. This policy is periodically reviewed to ensure that it is accurate, comprehensive, prominently displayed, completely implemented, accessible, and in conformance with the Safe Harbor Principles. Logik encourages any individuals affected by non-compliance with the Principles, to whom the data relates, to contact Logik. Logik will endeavor to address and correct any reasonable concerns. In the event that any concern is unable to be resolved through these internal mechanisms, a complaint may be pursued through AAA. Decisions produced by the arbitration panel will be final and binding upon the parties.
