The Sullivan Alliance privacy statement


The right to privacy is a priority to The Sullivan Alliance. We recognize everyone’s need for reasonable control of information that is shared with The Sullivan Alliance. This statement is an organization-wide principle. The Sullivan Alliance does not sell any customer information to outside organizations without their specific permission. Our goal in gathering information is to consistently improve our relationship with our partners and visitors.

The Sullivan Alliance uses the following guidelines to protect the information we collect during your visit to our website, over the telephone, at trade shows, or through any other interaction. Because these guidelines affect information about you, please read them carefully and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Application of The Sullivan Alliance privacy statement outside the U.S.

To the extent applicable, The Sullivan Alliance attempts to comply with local data protection rights laws. If you are unsure whether this privacy statement is in conflict with applicable local rules, you should not submit your information. IF YOU ARE LOCATED WITHIN THE EUROPEAN UNION, YOU SHOULD NOTE THAT YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO THE UNITED STATES, WHICH IS DEEMED BY THE EUROPEAN UNION TO HAVE INADEQUATE DATA PROTECTION. We have made an effort to add greater protection. Nevertheless, in accordance with local laws implementing European Union Directive 95/46/EC of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data ("EU Privacy Directive"), customers located in countries outside of the United States of America who submit personal information do thereby consent to the general use of such information as provided in this Privacy Statement and to its transfer to and/or storage in the United States of America.
