Use Of Data Received from Clients
As an eDiscovery company, much of the data we collect, and store is provided by clients rather than directly from individuals. Any data received on behalf of clients is used strictly for the business purposes defined in the agreement between the client and Everest Discovery. It may be shared with third parties for the sole purposes of providing eDiscovery services to our clients. A written approval from our clients will be requested prior to sharing any data with a third party. An individual who seeks access or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data provided to Everest by a client should direct their query to that client and not to Everest Discovery. Additionally, an individual wishing to limit the use or sharing of their data should direct their query to that client and not to Everest Discovery.
Disclosing & Retaining Information
We may share personal information with our affiliated or related entities in connection with delivering services to you and to companies who provide services to us. Everest Discovery is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Everest Discovery may also be required to disclose an individual’s personal or confidential information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. Data provided to Everest Discovery will be retained only so long as is required for the purpose for which it was given.

Adherence to the Privacy Shield Frameworks for EU, UK and Swiss Individuals
We will provide an individual opt-out choice, or opt-in for sensitive data, before we share your data with third parties other than our agents, or before we use it for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized. To request to limit the use and disclosure of your personal information, please submit a written request to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Everest Discovery’s accountability for personal data that it receives in the United States under the Data Privacy Frameworks and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the Data Privacy Framework Principles. In particular, Everest Discovery remains responsible and liable under the Data Privacy Framework Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Everest Discovery proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
In compliance with the EU-US Data Privacy Framework Principles, Everest Discovery commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information transferred to the United States pursuant to the DPF Principles. European Union, Swiss and United Kingdom individuals with DPF inquiries or complaints should first contact Everest Discovery at 215-325-1800.
Everest Discovery has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the DPF Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, Data Privacy Framework Services, operated by BBB National Programs. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit https://bbbprograms.org/programs/all-programs/dpf-consumers/ProcessForConsumers for more information and to file a complaint. This service is provided free of charge to you.
If your DPF complaint cannot be resolved through the above channels, under certain conditions, you may invoke binding arbitration for some residual claims not resolved by other redress mechanisms.
Everest Discovery acknowledges the EU, UK and Swiss individual’s right to access their personal data. An individual who seeks access or who seeks to access or correct inaccurate personal data provided to Everest Discovery by a client should direct their query to that client. Similarly, an individual wishing to limit the use or sharing of their personal data should direct their query to that client.
