Personal Data Accure Collects
Accure collects data from you through our interactions with you and through our products. The data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with Accure and the choices you make, including your privacy settings and the products and features you use. You provide some data to us directly (e.g., contact information, job information), we collect data about your interactions with and use of our products (e.g., cookies or other electronic trackers, customer relationship management information), and we obtain data about you from third parties (e.g., information from an Accure partner or information about your attendance at an event sponsored by Accure).
When you interact with us, we collect information sent to us by your device. The information we collect may include data about the pages you access, your computer IP address, device ID or unique identifier, device type, geolocation information, computer and connection information, and mobile network information.
You have choices about the technology you use and the data you share with us. When we ask you to provide personal data, you may decline. However, many of our products require some personal data to provide you with a service. If you choose not to provide that necessary data, you will not be able to use that product or feature. Similarly, where we need personal data by law or to enter into or carry out a contract with you, we will not be able to proceed if you do not provide the data. We will let you know if not providing the personal information will result in our inability to provide you with a product or service. In cases where providing personal data is optional, certain features like personalization will not work if you choose not to provide the personal data.
Applicants’ Personal Data
If you are applying for a job with either Accure or one of its customers, we collect additional information related to your employment application.
At our customer’s or your request, we may disclose your personal data to third parties for employment screening, background checks, credential verification services, or other similar services related to verifying the accuracy of the information you have provided. If you do not want your personal data, (including test results or background checks) used as described here, you should not provide us with your personal data.
For job applicants applying directly to Accure, we use the personal data you have provided to make employment decisions, as well as for our other legitimate business purposes, such as workforce analysis, gaining a greater understanding of our applicants, attracting talented individuals, and providing you with information about job vacancies at Accure. We also use your data to comply with our legal obligations, such as employment laws.
How Accure Uses Personal Data
Accure uses the data we collect about you to provide you with rewarding, interactive experiences. In particular, we use data to:
• Provide our products and services, which includes updating, securing, and troubleshooting, as well as providing support. It also includes sharing data, when necessary to provide the service or other transaction you have requested
• Improve and develop our products
• Personalize our products
• Advertise and market to you, which includes sending promotional communications and targeting advertising
We also use the data for our business purposes, including analyzing our performance, meeting our legal obligations, and developing our workforce. To achieve these purposes, we sometimes combine data we collect from different contexts to give you a better experience, to make informed business decisions, and for other legitimate reasons. For example, we may combine information we have about your current engagement with our products with information relating to your other interactions with Accure, including your attendance at Accure sponsored events. We may also combine data in other contexts.
Reasons We Share Personal Data
We share your personal data with Accure affiliates and subsidiaries, vendors, partners, and service providers (when you have approved such sharing) to complete transactions, or to provide a product you have requested. We also share data with vendors working for us, when required by law or legal process, to protect lives, to maintain the security of our products, to provide support services and to protect the rights and property of Accure and its customers. For example, we may share information with our partners to complete a business transaction with you or to provide support during your use of our products and services.
How to Access and Control Your Personal Data
You have choices about how Accure collects and uses your data. You can exercise your data protection rights by contacting Accure.
