Collection of Personal Information

Personal Information’ means information that identifies you as an individual. In general, when you visit our website, EMA does not track your visit by individual name or other identifiable personal information. Our website does use cookies (small text files that store website data about how you use our website and whether errors occur on your computer) to improve your experience using our website through a service provided by Google Analytics. These cookies do not typically collect information that can individually identify you.  More information about cookies we use for analytics can be found here in these two links: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage?csw=1 and https://policies.google.com/privacy. To enhance visitor interaction with our website, we have also included links on our website to social media services, each of which also uses cookies. Please be advised that once you link from EMA’s website to another site, EMA has no control over that website or its cookies and cannot be responsible for the protection of your privacy on those sites. Please refer to the privacy policies of the websites that you link to from our site for further information. You may manage or “turn off” cookies in your browser settings, but please understand that declining cookies may affect how our website performs for you. To the extent that EMA collects personal information, it is only in situations where you voluntarily choose to provide it, by emailing us, submitting our ‘contact us’ form to us, or applying for employment with us. Our website will ask for your consent before you submit this type of information.

Processing of Personal Information

If you provide EMA with personal information, EMA will process that information only for the purpose it is submitted. For instance, if you contact us with questions regarding our services, we will only use your personal information to respond to your request, and not for direct marketing purposes. If you apply for employment with EMA, we will use the information provided on your employment application (including any supporting documents, references or interview details) to process your application, verify the information and make an employment determination. If you are required to undergo certain additional background checks or procedures as part of the job offer process (e.g. criminal convictions checks or visa application procedures), we will use this information only as required to comply with applicable law. We will share your personal information only with EMA staff, or the governmental agencies necessary to verify information such as citizenship or work status. We will store your personal information for as long as necessary to complete the application process or, if you are hired by EMA, for the duration legally required.

Storage and Security of Personal Information

EMA will not share your personal information with third parties without your consent unless the law requires or allows us to do so. Personal information collected by EMA is stored in EMA’s offices in the U.S. and/or on its servers in the U.S. We take appropriate technical measures so that your information is not unlawfully obtained or processed. While such measures reduce vulnerability, please recognize that no system is completely secured. By submitting your personal information, you agree to EMA’s processing and storage of your information.

Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Information

You have the right to object to our processing or storage of your personal information or to request a copy of your personal information in our records by contacting us; if you contact us, please refer to “Data Privacy” in your communication. You may request that your personal information be deleted from our records or request a restriction on how your personal information is used. To the extent that you have consented to our processing of your personal information, you can withdraw your consent. If you are not happy with the manner in which your information is handled or with a response received by EMA, please contact us so the matter may be referred to an appropriate manager and please also consider other steps you might take.
