If you reside in the European Union, you have various rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regarding the processing of your personal data, including under certain circumstances, the right to request access to and rectification or erasure of your personal data, data portability, restriction of processing of your personal data, the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, and the right to object to the processing of your personal data on certain grounds, including:

  • The right to object when your personal data is processed based on the legitimate interests of IAA or a third party, including profiling related to such legitimate interests.
  • The right to object when your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, including profiling related to direct marketing.

If you live in the European Union, and you wish to exercise any of these rights, you can make a request by writing to us at the following local address: Data Privacy Manager, Two Westbrook Corporate Center, Westchester, IL 60154. You may also send an email to Privacy@iaai.com or submit a Data Subject Request form. If you do not live in the European Union but you believe you have rights under your local laws, please contact IAA at Privacy@iaai.com.

If you reside outside of the European Union, you may have similar rights under your local laws.

If you reside in the European Union, the United Kingdom or Switzerland, you also have the right, under the Privacy Shield, to access and to correct, amend or delete your personal data where it is inaccurate or where it has been processed in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy or where the rights of other individuals would be violated.

If you reside in the European Union, the United Kingdom or Switzerland, your rights under the Privacy Shield include the right to notice of the choices and means that IAA offers you for limiting the use and disclosure of your personal data. IAA provides you with the opportunity to choose how your personal data may be used under certain circumstances. If your personal data is to be used for a new purpose that is materially different from that for which your personal data was originally collected or subsequently authorized, or if your personal data is to be disclosed to a third-party controller, IAA will provide you with an opportunity to choose whether to have your personal data so used or disclosed. When sharing your personal data with third-party processors that IAA has retained to perform services on its behalf and pursuant to its instructions, IAA may disclose your personal data without offering an opportunity to opt out.

IAA also provides you with specific rights related to your sensitive personal data. “Sensitive Data” under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is defined as personal data specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or information specifying the sex life of an individual. Under the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, “Sensitive Data” means personal data specifying medical or health conditions, personal sexuality, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, ideological or trade union-related views or activities, or information on social security measures or administrative or criminal proceedings and sanctions, which are treated outside pending proceedings. If your sensitive personal data is to be used for a new purpose that is different from that for which your sensitive personal data was originally collected or subsequently authorized, or is to be disclosed to a third party, IAA will obtain your affirmative express consent prior to such use or such disclosure.

In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, IAA is committed to resolving complaints about our collection and use of EU/UK/Swiss personal data. EU, UK and/or Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact IAA by email at Privacy@iaai.com or by writing to us via mail at: Data Privacy Manager, Two Westbrook Corporate Center, Westchester, IL 60154.

IAA has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States. If you do not receive timely acknowledgement of your complaint from us, or if we have not resolved your complaint to your satisfaction, please contact or visit JAMS for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you. Additionally, you may, under certain conditions, invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance that are not resolved by any of the other Privacy Shield resolution mechanisms. More information about Privacy Shield arbitration is available here.

Do Not Track

IAA does not track its customers over time and across third-party websites and online services (e.g., mobile apps), and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track signals. However, some third-party sites and apps track your browsing activities when they provide you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. Third parties may collect personal data relating to your online activities over time and across different sites and apps when you use our Sites.

If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1789.83 permits you to request (once per calendar year) information regarding the disclosure of your personal data (if any) to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
