CLARITY is committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of individuals and keeping Personal Information secure by complying with applicable data protection, privacy and information security laws and regulations.

This Policy describes CLARITY’s methods regarding the necessary collection, use, disclosure, and safeguarding of Personal Information for business related purposes. CLARITY shall protect Personal Information and ensure that such information remains secure and available.


This Policy applies to all CLARITY lines and departments globally, including all corporate office locations, lines of business, shared services and operational business units. It also applies to independently operated subsidiaries.


1. Personal Information

Any and all information or data (regardless of format) that (i) identifies or can be used to identify, contact or locate an individual, or (ii) that relates to an individual, whose identity can be either directly or indirectly inferred, including any information that is linked or linkable to that individual regardless of any attributes or status of such individual.


2. Sensitive Personal Information

A subset of Personal Information, which due to its nature has been classified by law, contract, or by CLARITY policy as requiring additional privacy protections and Enhanced Safeguarding.

Examples of Sensitive Personal Information may include:

  • (i) government-issued identification numbers,

  • (ii) financial account numbers (including payment card information and Cardholder Data, as defined by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard),

  • (iii) individual medical records (including Protected Health Information, 45 CFR § 160.103) and biometric information,

  • (iv) data obtained from a consumer reporting agency (including employee background investigation reports, credit reports, and credit scores),

  • (v) data elements revealing race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, trade union membership, sex life or sexual orientation, and criminal records or allegations of crimes, and

  • (vi) any other Personal Information designated by CBRE as Sensitive Personal Information.

3. Enhanced Safeguarding

The implementation of more stringent physical, technical, and administrative measures against the risk of inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information than the safeguards generally required because the inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information may create a risk of substantial harm to the individual (for example, identity theft or financial fraud).
