EML will adhere to EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Principles in using data to (1) reasonably provide, maintain, protect, improve services; (2) investigate fraud or report a card lost or stolen; and (3) respond to legal requests from public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

EML enables individuals to exercise rights to access their personal information and choices provided to them through EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Principles.  Within 45 days of a written request, EML will make reasonable efforts to grant individuals access to any personal information held by them.  EML will provide access so that the individual may review, correct, amend, or request deletion of their personal data.  EML offers individuals the opportunity to opt-out of (1) personal information being disclosed to third-party, or (2) personal information being used for a purpose other than the intended use or as otherwise authorized by the individual.
