To view the Kratos Privacy Shield certification, see www.privacyshield.gov. Under certain circumstances, Kratos may be required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
If a third party service provider providing services on Kratos’ behalf processes personal data from the EEA in a manner that is inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, Kratos will be liable unless we can prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
Rights You Have About Your Information:
When your information is collected in the EEA, you have the right to: (1) request access to, correction, and/or erasure of your personal data; (2) object to our processing of your personal data; (3) request a copy of your personal data, or have a copy thereof sent to another controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format under the right of data portability. You may exercise these rights by reaching out to us through one of the contact methods provided above.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Kratos commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EEA individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact Kratos at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kratos 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 acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, please visit https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has jurisdiction over Kratos’ compliance with the Privacy Shield.
If you are located in the EEA and have exhausted all other means to resolve your concern regarding a potential violation of Kratos’ obligations under the Privacy Shield Principles, under certain circumstances you may seek resolution via binding arbitration. For additional information about the arbitration process, please visit the Privacy Shield website: http://www.privacyshield.gov.
Legitimate Interest and Direct Marketing Objections:
For information collected in the EEA, you may object to Kratos processing your information where we are relying on a legitimate interest. We will stop processing your information unless we can demonstrate appropriate, overriding legitimate grounds for the processing or if needed for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

Anyone can do this no matter where your information was collected by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link in any automated marketing email or by submitting your request to Kratos through one of the contact methods described above.

We take reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect your personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in processing and the nature of such data, and comply with applicable laws and regulations.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data was collected. When Kratos determines how long to retain your information, we will consider whether we have an active or potential business relationship with you, whether there are any legal obligations to which we are subject, and whether retention is prudent because of legal considerations (such as statute of limitations, litigation, or other investigations).
