Hard Copy and Electronic Storage Protections Personal information stored in our offices or stores is also subject to physical, administrative and technical checks. Physical copies of sensitive personal data are kept in closed spaces or cabinets with similar restrictions for electronic storage. When disposed of, the information is shredded, destroyed, erased or otherwise unreadable. Information provided or collected by the company is stored as part of physical, electronic and procedural security measures that restrict access to authorized personnel and comply with applicable legislation to protect such data from loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification and improper disclosure. For example, security guards are deployed at various entrances, exits and critical areas to prevent unauthorized access, and secure access cards are also issued to staff needed to access all office areas, work areas and other areas where data is stored. Surveillance and surveillance are also provided by video cameras installed at strategic sites. System data is protected by secure passwords and is only accessible to authorized employees. Employees are strictly prohibited from sharing their systems or passwords. Each associate partner signs an associated employment contract that contains a specific obligation not to disclose confidential information, including personal data. Associates are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to disciplinary action, including termination and criminal prosecution, where they do not comply. For example, shipping providers, account and refund providers, payment card providers and companies that help us improve our product and service offerings and websites. Your personal data may be stored and processed by our service providers in India or the United States or in other locations where service providers or Walmart and/or Walmart maintain facilities.
We require our service providers to protect your data. In addition, our service providers are not authorized to use or disclose personal data for any purpose other than providing the Services on our behalf. We also strive to secure information provided to service providers by taking appropriate action, including enforcing a confidentiality agreement, to ensure that service providers are applying appropriate security standards and complying with privacy laws and rules. We may disclose your data in other special circumstances. These include situations where common use is necessary to protect the safety, property or other rights of Walmart, our customers, employees or any other person, or if required by law. Examples include protecting the health or safety of customers or combating offences committed on Walmart real estate. Information from surveillance cameras in the store may also be made available to law enforcement agencies on written request. Walmart may provide your personal data in response to a search warrant or other valid request or injunction or to an investigative body in the event of a breach of contract or violation of the law or in any other manner required by applicable law.
