RRD adheres to US and other international regulations such as:
Personal Information Protection and Electronic Document Act (PIPEDA)
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (for the purposes of Article 3(2) of that Regulation.
ePrivacy Directive (ePD) - Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive (2002/58/EC)
Directives (as amended)
California Consumer Protection Act - AB-375 (CCPA)
Consistent with the spirit of International Privacy Regulations, RRD aims to resolve complaints
about our collection or use of your personal data at no cost to the individual. However, as
permitted by applicable Privacy Regulations, RRD reserves the right to seek compensation for
requests that are unfounded, impose an excessive burden or have a repetitive character.
RRD recognizes and has controls in place to ensure that the privacy of personal data about an
"identifiable individual" used in the course of "commercial activity" is protected and managed
in such a manner which meets or exceeds the guidelines set out in PIPEDA and applicable
GDPR and the Standard Contractual Clauses (European Union, Switzerland and United
RRD uses Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) and internal assessments to ensure that
appropriate data safeguards can be used as a ground for data transfers from the EU,
Switzerland, and UK to third countries. These clauses have been “pre-approved” by the
European Commission under the GDPR for data transfers from controllers or processors in the
EU/EEA (or otherwise subject to the GDPR) to controllers or processors established outside the
EU/EEA (and not subject to the GDPR).
RRD may obtain in the US the following types of EU, UK and Swiss information: name, address,
invoice information including bank account information, and order information (“EU, UK and
Swiss Business Contact Information”). RRD uses EU, UK and Swiss Business Contact Information
for the following purposes: managing customer relationships, managing orders, tracking
payments and ensuring payment, and otherwise maintaining the customer relationship. RRD
may disclose EU, UK and Swiss Business Contact Information to its affiliates, subsidiaries,
business partners, and service providers for the purposes listed above.
In situations where RRD discloses (i.e., onward transfers) EU, UK and Swiss Business Contact
Information to any third parties acting as service providers or “agents” on behalf of RRD, RRD
will require the recipient to protect the disclosed EU, UK and Swiss Business Contact
Information in accordance with the Standard Contractual Clauses, or otherwise take steps to
ensure that the EU, UK and Swiss Business Contact Information is appropriately protected. With
respect to any sharing of EU, UK and Swiss Business Contact Information for the purposes of
marketing RRD products and services, RRD obtains guarantees from its affiliates, subsidiaries
and business partners that such entities will use and disclose such EU, UK and Swiss Business
Contact Information for purposes of marketing RRD products and services only. In cases of onward
transfer of EU, UK or Swiss Business Information to third parties pursuant to Standard
Contractual Clauses, RRD is potentially liable in the event of an improper disclosure. In certain
situations, individuals may seek to opt-out of disclosures of their EU, UK and Swiss Business
Contact Information by contacting RRD as specified in the “Contacting RRD” section below.
RRD takes appropriate technical and organizational measures to safeguard EU, UK and Swiss
personal data against unauthorized or unlawful processing of, or accidental loss, damage,
misuse, unauthorized access, unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized alteration, or destruction,
and maintains reasonable procedures to help ensure that such information is relevant for its
intended use, accurate, complete, current and not excessive and that such information is not
retained longer than is reasonably necessary.
With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Standard Contractual
Clauses, RRD is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the United States Federal
Trade Commission. In certain situations, RRD may disclose EU, UK and Swiss personal data as
necessary in connection with the sale or transfer of all or part of its business, where required or
permitted by law, where RRD believes that such disclosures are appropriate in connection with
a law enforcement request or as otherwise permitted by the Standard Contractual Clauses, or
in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud or in
order to comply with, enforce or apply RRD agreements.
While RRD has certified its adherence to and continues to comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield
framework, RRD no longer relies on Privacy Shield as a legal basis for cross-border transfers of
personal data from the EU to the US, and instead utilizes SCCs and internal assessments for
such as described above.
European Union, UK and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy
policy should contact the RRD Privacy point of contact - at DataPrivacy@rrd.com. RRD will
respond to your inquiry within 45 days.
In the event of a reported complaint that RRD does not resolve itself, RRD commits to
cooperate with the EU Data Protection Authorities (DPA’s) and the Swiss Federal Data
Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) and comply with the advice given by the EU
DPA panel or Swiss Commissioner with regard to human resource and non-human resource
data transferred from the EU,UK and Switzerland to RRD in the United States (US).
