Ascendify Corporation ("Ascendify" or “we”) has adopted the following Privacy Shield Policy to help you learn about how we handle Personal Information that is collected in the European Economic Area (the “EEA”) by our clients and transferred to Ascendify in the U.S. For the purpose of this Privacy Shield Policy, “Personal Information” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual.
When providing talent acquisition and talent management services (the “Service”), Ascendify is a data processor and only processes Personal Information on behalf of and by instructions of its clients, which are data controllers. Our customer’s agreement defines the roles and responsibilities of the parties for the processing of Personal Information in the context of the Service. This Privacy Shield Policy applies only to EEA Personal Information that Ascendify processes in the U.S. on behalf of clients located in the EEA.
Ascendify complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Information that is transferred from the EEA to the United States (“Privacy Shield”). Ascendify commits to subject to the Privacy Shield Principles for all Personal Information received from clients in the EEA in reliance on the Privacy Shield.
Ascendify’s clients determine the types of data they submit to Ascendify to process on their behalf in the course of using our Service. Examples of Personal Data processed in this context include human resources-related information such as first name, last name, email address, mailing address, phone number and other contact information, role, job title, experience, education, skills, and social profile information when provided. Ascendify does not control such information, and does not select or determine the specific types of data that it processes.
Ascendify acts only as a data processor with respect to Personal Data from the EEA that it receives from its clients, and does not determine the purpose for which it is processed. Accordingly, Ascendify only processes Personal Information as necessary to provide its Service and as instructed by its customers in the Customer Agreement, or as required or permitted under applicable law.
Ascendify may share Personal Information with a limited number of third parties, including subsidiaries, and affiliates. If requested by the client, we may also share Personal Information with select business partners with whom our clients have independently contracted and authorized such disclosures in connection with our services.
We may also share Personal Information with subcontractors, who process Personal Information on our behalf to assist us in providing our Service. In case of disclosure to a third party acting on our behalf, we remain responsible for the processing of Personal Information received under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transferred to that third party if it processes such Personal Information in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, unless we prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the inconsistent processing.
We may also disclose Personal Information as may be required or permitted under the Privacy Shield Principles and under applicable law, including in response to lawful requests by public authorities, such as to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Since we process Personal Information on behalf of our clients in connection with the Service, our clients control the type of information we obtain, how that information is disclosed and used, and how it can be modified. Therefore, requests to access, correct, amend, or remove Personal Information, or to limit the use and disclosure of Personal Data that Ascendify processes on behalf of its clients should be submitted to the clients who submitted your data to our services. However, if you provide us with the name of the Ascendify client who submitted your Personal Data to Ascendify, we will forward such requests to the identified client to respond directly to you and we will provide any necessary assistance in that client’s response to your request. You can contact us as described in the How to Contact Us section below.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Ascendify commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EU individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our privacy shield policy should first contact Ascendify at the “How to contact us” section below.
Ascendify has further committed to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning data transferred from the EU.
Ascendify is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission with respect to its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.
