Leidos Digital Solutions, Inc. (“DSI,” “we,” “us” or “our”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, Inc., recognizes the importance of protecting your Personal Information. This Privacy Statement (“Statement”) provides you with information about how DSI collects, uses, and discloses your Personal Information when you visit the Intranet Quorum (“IQ”) website, and the rights you may have with respect to your Personal Information.
We commit to collecting and processing your Personal Information responsibly and in compliance with applicable data protection/privacy laws. This Statement applies to our processing of Personal Information collected through intranetquorum.com (the "site).
DSI provides products and services to federal, state, and local elected officials and government offices (collectively “Customers”). Accordingly, while we may collect and process Personal Information and other data on behalf of our Customers (collectively, “Customer Data”), our normal business practice is to do so only at the request or direction of our customers and solely for the purpose(s) agreed to in the applicable customer contract. We collect and process such Customer Data responsibly and in compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and customer contract obligations.
If you are a resident of California, you have additional rights, which are explained in the Additional Rights under Local Laws section. These rights may apply regardless of whether we collect your Personal Information through our Site or through other means.
If there is a conflict between this Statement and the terms of any written agreement between a DSI customer and DSI, the terms of such written agreement will control.
