Information Collection and Use
APC Postal Logistics, LLC. is a global ecommerce and mail solutions company, providing shipping services to retailers and e-retailers (the “SHIPPERS”) to send their customer’s (the “CONSUMERS”) orders overseas. We use the personal information of the Consumers, which is provided by these Shippers (our customers) solely for the purpose of producing the shipping information to transport their ordered products to them (the Consumers). The Shippers agree to the collection and use of the information in accordance with this policy. While using our services, we may ask the Shippers to provide us with certain personally identifiable information of the Consumers that can be used to contact or identify them.
Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to the name, address and contact number of the Consumers. We receive the data in digital format from the Shippers. We process the packages to confirm the correct data provided and to create the final address label needed for shipping these packages based on the data provided by the Shippers. We then ship these packages along with transmitting the data to third parties in order to clear the packages in country for duty and VAT purposes. These third parties then clear these packages based on the information provided by APC Postal Logistics, LLC. All third party vendors who may gain access to shipping information have been vetted to make sure they are compliant with all data security procedures and they themselves are GDPR compliant.
APC Postal Logistics LLC may send personal information to third parties such as customs brokers and final mile delivery carriers. Such information is disclosed only in order to complete the shipping of the ordered merchandise of the Consumer.

With respect to onward transfers to Third Parties, the Privacy Shield program requires that APC Postal Logistics LLC, to the extent it is responsible for such event(s), shall remain liable should its Third Parties process Personal Information in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles.
