• Other internal policies and procedures that define the roles and responsibilities of the Company’s personnel throughout the information life cycle and limit their access to such information on a “need-to-know” basis;

• When information is collected or stored in electronic format, technical safeguards such as encryption, firewalls, passwords, antivirus software and similar measures;

• A designated Privacy Officer to monitor compliance with applicable data protection laws; and
