EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss-US Privacy Shield
AMC intends to comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce. These policies govern the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States. We have submitted our application to be self-certified under these policies. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.
AMC has submitted our compliance application to the Department of Commerce. Customers can verify our participation in the EU-US Privacy Shield by utilizing the EU-US Privacy Shield List here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list. As such, AMC acknowledges that it is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
AMC is responsible for processing personal data for our clients. We comply with the Privacy Shield principles for all transfers of personal data, including onward transfer liability provisions.
Privacy Shield requires that under certain conditions, individuals are permitted to seek resolution through binding arbitration. An individual who decides to invoke this arbitration option must take the following steps prior to initiating an arbitration claim: (1) raise the claimed violation directly with AMC and afford AMC an opportunity to resolve the issue within the timeframe set forth in Section III.11(d)(i) of the Privacy Shield Principles (the “Principals”) (2) make use of the independent recourse mechanism under the Principles, which is at no cost to the individual; and (3) raise the issue through the Data Protection Authority to the Department of Commerce and afford the Department of Commerce an opportunity to use best efforts to resolve the issue within the timeframes set forth in the Letter from the International Trade Administration of the Department of Commerce, at no cost to the individual. This arbitration option may not be invoked if the individual’s same claimed violation of the Principles (1) has previously been subject to binding arbitration; (2) was the subject of a final judgment entered in a court action to which the individual was a party; or (3) was previously settled by the parties.
In compliance with Privacy Shield Principals, AMC commits to resolve complaints about our collection and use of your personal information. EU and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact AMC at:

Breach Notification Policy
It is the policy of AMC to provide timely notifications to affected customers about breaches of individual personal information. AMC shall notify individuals when a reportable breach is discovered. A breach is treated as “discovered” by AMC the first day on which such breach is known or should reasonably have been known by AMC. Notification will occur without unreasonable delay and in no event later than 60-days from the discovery of the breach, unless law enforcement requests a delay.
Breach notifications will include a brief description of what happened, a description of the personal information involved, steps individuals should take to protect themselves from potential harm, a brief description of the actions taken by AMC in response to the breach and contact procedures for individuals to ask questions. E-mail shall be the default method of notification. AMC may use first class mail if requested by an individual.

Following termination of service, customer personal data shall continue to be retained for the minimum period mandatory under local law.
