Privacy Statement
SSGA's goal is to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. To achieve this, we may collect personally identifiable as well as anonymous information during your visits to the site. Personally identifiable information is information that can be used to uniquely identify you, such as your name, job title, telephone number and e-mail address. Anonymous information is information that tells us what you do on the site, such as functions utilized, searches conducted, the time of day you visited the site. Any information gathered is confidential and is used in the delivery of the service you have requested and to allow SSGA to improve the service and your on-line experience.

Policy and Practices
Although information about your needs helps us to provide superior service, nothing is more important to our business than the trust and confidence you have in us. That is why we want you to know how we will manage any information we obtain about you when you visit this Site.

Recognizing your expectation of privacy on the Internet, we will make every effort to:

  • Safeguard any information you share with us by applying strict standards of security and confidentiality
  • Limit the collection, use and retention of information to what we believe is necessary or useful in order to provide quality service
  • Permit only authorized employees to have access to your information
  • Share information with external organizations only when we have previously informed you in disclosures or agreements, have received your authorization or are required by law
  • Require any organization we hire to provide support services to conform to our privacy standards and to allow us to audit them for compliance
  • Keep your files complete, accessible, up-to-date and accurate
  • It is important to note that this policy is for general guidance. It neither constitutes a contract nor creates legal rights. It does not modify or amend any agreements we have with you. We reserve the right to change these privacy principles listed above at any time without prior notice

Since your use of the Site constitutes your acceptance of the terms of this privacy statement, you should periodically review it for changes. If you have any question about this Privacy Statement, please contact your SSGA Relationship Manager or SSGA. This privacy statement applies only to the Site.

It is SSGA's policy to treat customer, employee, and vendor Social Security numbers that we obtain in the course of business as confidential and to protect them throughout their lifecycle from accidental, malicious or unauthorized disclosure, misuse, modification, destruction, loss and/or damage.

To that end, SSGA has developed controls and procedures reasonably designed to protect the confidentiality of, prohibit unauthorized disclosure of, and limit access to customer, employee, and vendor Social Security numbers.

Security Measures: Maintaining Privacy
Maintaining your privacy and personal data we may obtain in the course of business requires that we guard against unauthorized access to your information. Therefore, we operate secure data networks protected by industry-standard security measures designed to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the data you share with us, either directly or indirectly.

User Authentication
Your access to certain portions of the Site is password-protected and for higher risk applications may have an additional authentication challenge. Once you select your personal password, you may enter and access information.

Browser Security Measures
To ensure browser security, (i) we require that your browser support SSL and (ii) you do not allow information to be stored on your hard drive unless you specifically download it and save it on your computer.

Data Security Measures
We take industry-standard steps to protect against any anticipated threat or hazards to the security or integrity of your data. We utilize information-scrambling technologies to protect the information sent to or from this Site. This Site uses VeriSign® global certificates that automatically enable 128-bit encryption with all versions of the required browser.

Nonetheless, no representation is made regarding the unconditional security of such submissions.

Firewalls
To prohibit unauthorized access that may harm your records or inconvenience you, we utilize specialized computers ("firewalls") that limit the entry of those without proper authorization. These shields check to make sure that communication occurs between approved individuals in accordance with proper protocol.

Ongoing Surveillance
Our security systems regularly monitor the Web server to help maintain the security of this Site. This includes monitoring SSGA's employees to ensure that only authorized individuals have access to the information you provide us.

How we Transfer and Store Personal Data

SSGA is a global organisation and part of the global State Street group; Personal Data we collect may be transferred internationally throughout the world to countries where State Street does business, which may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you reside. We have relevant legal safeguards, internal policies and procedures in place in an effort to achieve an equivalent level of protection across our organisation. To find out more about the safeguards that SSGA has in place please contact Jill Stoller (Chief Privacy Officer) at JStoller@StateStreet.com. The transfer of Personal Data to other countries is based on a business need or to comply with applicable laws. Personal Data stored or processed in a foreign jurisdiction may be accessed under a lawful order made in that jurisdiction.

By providing your information to SSGA in the course of your access and use of our Sites or the Services, you agree that your Personal Data, for the purposes explained in this privacy notice, may be transferred to and stored in other countries where SSGA does business, which may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you reside.

How we protect your Personal Data

We use security measures, in compliance with applicable law, to protect Personal Data from unauthorised access or use. Yet you should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that information and Personal Data may flow, without security measures, over networks connecting you to our systems and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.

To safeguard against unauthorised access to Personal Data by third parties, all electronic Personal Data held by SSGA is maintained on systems protected by secure network architectures that contain firewalls and intrusion detection devices. The servers holding Personal Data are "backed up" (i.e., recorded) on a regular basis in an effort to avoid any inadvertent erasure or destruction of such Personal Data and are stored in facilities with appropriate security and fire detection and response system.

When you contact SSGA with questions about our Sites or the Services, we must confirm your identity on the phone before discussing your information. The questions and answers you select when logging into our Sites for the first time are used for this identification process.

Our Sites may, from time to time, contain links to and from the sites of third parties. If you follow a link to any of these sites, please note that these sites have their own privacy notices or practices and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these notices, practices or sites. Please check these policies before you submit any Personal Data to these sites.

Your Rights

Any person who has sent us Personal Data has the right to:

  • Be informed about the Personal Data
  • Access to the Personal Data
  • Rectification of Personal Data, where it is inaccurate or incomplete
  • Erasure of Personal Data in certain circumstances (for example, where the Personal Data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collated).
  • Obtain restriction of processing in certain circumstances (for example, where the accuracy of the Personal Data is contested, for the period enabling State Street to verify the accuracy of that Personal Data)
  • Object to the processing of the Personal Data
  • Receive Personal Data in a structure, commonly used and machine-readable format, and to have that Personal Data transmitted directly to another data controller (data portability)
  • Lodge a complaint to the relevant local data protection authority

In the interests of security, we may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity when you are exercising your rights.

If you have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your Personal Data, you have the right to fully or partly withdraw your consent. If you choose to withdraw your consent, we will no longer process your Personal Data for the purpose(s) to which you originally consented unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for further processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. You may also unsubscribe from any direct marketing at any time.

You will not generally have to pay a fee in relation to the exercise of the above rights but please note that a reasonable fee may be levied on excessive or manifestly unfounded requests or in such cases, we may refuse to comply with such excessive or unreasonable requests.
