We maintain a marketing and general information website, https://www.viapeople.com, for the purpose of publishing marketing and general business communication. The applications, where we provide services in the area of human resources, are located in a number of domains under the base domain viapeople.net.
Our web applications collect information about our customers’ employees, including title, reporting hierarchy, and basic identifying information (e.g., name, email address, user ID). By using the applications, we may also accumulate textual and numeric indications of employee performance. We do not receive or store any financial or government-identifying information. The information is used within the applications to assist the customer with personal performance feedback, managing goals, and similar human resource assessments.
Customers may also provide certain demographic information, such as gender and age, about the customer’s employees. This information may be sent back to the customer in the form of individual or aggregated reports. viaPeople does not process this information for any other purpose.
Information provided is accessible only to the customer's employees and management team. viaPeople accesses and uses this information only to support the functions contracted by our customers. There is no data sharing across customers or to any third parties.
All data entering or leaving our applications are encrypted using industry-standard secure sockets. viaPeople also maintains strict rules regarding the security of all customer data and remains successful at maintaining the confidentiality of all customer information. viaPeople commits to inform the HR personnel at our customers if at any time a security breach occurs which has the potential to compromise customer data.
All data is maintained in a secure system, encrypted at rest, and made available only within a customer’s environment. No customer information will be disclosed to any other entity by viaPeople. However, all information provided (except the identity of the author in the case of anonymous feedback) is made available to our customer, the employer.
viaPeople also may be required to disclose an individual’s personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
You have access to data pertaining to you as defined by our customer (your employer), and in coordination with our customer, any inaccurate data will be promptly corrected. viaPeople acknowledges that EU individuals have the right to access the personal information/data that we maintain about them. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should click here to contact us. If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable time frame. You may also email our EU representative at email@example.com.
We will provide an individual opt-out or opt-in choice before we share their data with third parties other than our agents, or before we use it for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized. Individuals have an opportunity to opt-out of using viaPeople applications. The customer will establish the language and interface for the end-user (employee) to opt-out.
Our server software gathers, in log files, general demographic information from all users of our website. For each visitor to the viaPeople website, our web server automatically recognizes the visitor’s domain name, browser type, operating system, referring domains, entry page, exit page, and average time on the website. This information is used for internal purposes only to help us improve our website and better understand our visitors’ needs.
If you choose to receive company or product information, you will need to complete our online request forms. The online forms provide site visitors with an opportunity to request free product downloads and demos, view viaPeople white papers, register for free viaPeople e-guides, and review other content. These forms require your name, company name, email address, company address, and phone number, as well as other information to help us determine and respond to your needs. All information provided by the visitor is voluntary. We use this information to send updates about our company and our products and to contact you if requested or necessary. We also use the demographic information you provide on these forms in connection with studies and reports regarding our website, such as website usage patterns, in order to better understand the needs of visitors to our website. We will not, however, associate any personally identifiable information which you provide with the information in these studies and reports.
We do not collect email addresses without the site visitor voluntarily providing us with this information (typically via our online information request form, white paper request form, and other website forms and surveys). We will periodically use your email information for service, sales, support, and marketing purposes. From time to time, we may share your email address with our partner organizations and companies for service, sales, support, and marketing purposes. If you do not wish to receive marketing emails from us or our partners in the future, you may opt-out as described below.
We use a variety of security measures and employ appropriate physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to protect against the loss or unauthorized use, alteration or disclosure of, or unauthorized access to the personal information under our control. We have licensed the industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which permits encryption of potentially sensitive information such as your name, address, and email address. This will make your information unusable in the event of unauthorized third-party interception. We store this information in a secure environment.
viaPeople personnel with access to this information have been trained and advised of the importance of maintaining the security and confidentiality of such information and of using it only for the purposes described in this privacy statement.
Other than as expressly described in this privacy statement, we will not share personally identifiable information with anyone outside of viaPeople without your prior permission unless we believe in good faith that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with applicable law; (ii) enforce the terms of any of our user agreements; or (iii) protect the rights, property, or safety of viaPeople, our visitors, or others.
In the event your personal information is acquired—or is reasonably believed to have been acquired—by an unauthorized person, and applicable law requires notification to you by viaPeople, viaPeople will notify you of such breach promptly by phone, email, fax, and/or U.S. mail as permitted by law and consistent with the reasonable investigatory needs of law enforcement and/or viaPeople.
viaPeople may amend this privacy statement from time to time. If viaPeople decides to make material changes in the way we use your personal information, we will post the changes on this page so that you always will know what information we collect, how it is used, and when and how it will be disclosed. Your use of the viaPeople website following notice of such change will be deemed acceptance of the revised privacy statement, which may include an application of the new policy to information provided prior to the date of such change.
If you receive marketing or similar email messages from us and wish to opt-out of receiving such messages, you may simply follow the opt-out procedure specified in such email.
