CS Disco, Inc. Privacy Shield Policy

1. What this policy covers.

CS Disco, Inc. (“DISCO”, the “Company,” “we,” or “us”) is committed to safeguarding the private information entrusted to it by its customers. DISCO complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework (“Privacy Shield”) as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.  DISCO has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles of Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, and Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability (“Principles”).  If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.  To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.

This Privacy Shield Policy (“Policy”) extends to DISCO’s secure collection, use and storage of Personal Data transferred from European Union (“EU”) member countries and Switzerland to the United States (“Personal Data”) and supplements the terms set forth in our Privacy Policy (located at www.csdisco.com/privacy-policy/).  Unless specifically defined in this Policy, the terms in this Policy have the same meaning as our Privacy Policy with respect to such Personal Data.

2. Information we receive from our customers

We collect and store Personal Data provided to us by individuals, law firms, business organizations, and government entities (collectively, our “Customers”) who sign agreements with us to use our software. Personal Data we receive from Customers are names, addresses, email addresses, email content, file-shares and other Personal Data identifiable to an individual. Any Personal Data received from our Customers is used strictly for the business purposes defined in the software agreement between the Customer and DISCO. It is not shared with third parties unless otherwise agreed between DISCO and the Customer, and in such a case, solely to third parties who are parties or counsel involved in litigation or other forms of dispute resolution, but strictly to provide the software and services to the Customer in accordance with the software agreement. We also collect and store names, addresses, email addresses, and email content received from Customer representatives using our software and accessing our support services site at www.support.csdisco.com.

You have the rights with respect to the Personal Data we receive from our Customers including the right to access, delete, amend, and correct your Personal Data. If you wish to access, correct, amend, or delete your Personal Data provided by a Customer to DISCO, you may contact us as described below. Similarly, if you wish to limit the use or sharing of your Personal Data, you should contact us as described below.

3. Information about visitors to our website

Visitors to our website www.csdisco.com will occasionally provide us with Personal Data on a completely voluntary basis.  DISCO will only process and store this data in ways that are compatible with the purpose for which the visitor gave it to DISCO, or for which DISCO stored it, or for purposes the visitor later authorizes. Before we use this data for a purpose that is materially different than the purpose for which we received it or for which it was later authorized, we will provide the visitor with the opportunity to opt out. DISCO maintains reasonable procedures under the circumstances to help ensure that data collected from visitors is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.

We also collect and store anonymous general information about the use of our websites and software, such as which software features our Customers use most frequently, and which services our Customers access the most. We use only aggregated data for this purpose, which de-identifies any individual Customer or visitor to our site. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users and how we can continually create a better overall software and services experience. We may use this general and aggregated anonymous information and share it with our business partners so that they too may understand how our site is used.

4. Sensitive Personal Data

Our Customers may provide us data without our knowledge that includes Personal Data relating to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, genetic information, or health or sex-life information (collectively “Sensitive Personal Data”), solely for the purpose of using DISCO’s software and services. DISCO does not otherwise collect or store Sensitive Personal Data as a matter of course in its operations and does not ask its Customers or any visitors to supply it.  Any Sensitive Personal Data received from Customers is used strictly for the business purposes defined in the software agreement between the Customer and DISCO. It is not shared with third parties unless otherwise agreed in writing between DISCO and the respective Customer, and in such a case, solely to third parties who are parties or counsel involved in litigation or other forms of dispute resolution, and strictly to provide DISCO’s software and services to the Customer.

You have the rights with respect to the Sensitive Personal Data we receive from our Customers including the right to access, delete, amend, and correct your Sensitive Personal Data. If you wish to access, correct, amend, or delete your Sensitive Personal Data provided by a Customer to DISCO, you may contact us as described below. Similarly, if you wish to limit the use or sharing of your Sensitive Personal Data, you should contact us as described below.  Any requests to obtain your opt-in consent where the Privacy Shield requires, including disclosure of your Sensitive Personal Data to third parties, or before your Sensitive Personal Data is used for a different purpose than for which it was provided to DISCO by the Customer or for which you later authorized, should be directed to us as described below.

5. Compliance with law enforcement

DISCO may be required to disclose EU or Swiss Personal Data in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including the need to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

7. Data Transfers to Third Parties

We may transfer Personal Data to our third-party agents or service providers who perform functions on our behalf as described in our Website Privacy Policy. Where required by the Privacy Shield, we enter into written agreements with those third-party agents and service providers requiring them to provide the same level of protection the Privacy Shield requires and limiting their use of the data to the specified services provided on our behalf. We take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that third-party agents and service providers process Personal Data in accordance with our Privacy Shield obligations and to stop and remediate any unauthorized processing.  Under the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks, we are responsible for the processing of information about you we receive from the EU and Switzerland and onward transfers to a third party acting as an agent on our behalf. We comply with the Privacy Shield Principles for such onward transfers and remain liable in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that we engage to process such information about you on our behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, unless we prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
