Our Role: Controller and Processor
Certain data protection laws, including the laws in the EU, differentiate between a party that determines why and how personal data is processed (called a "controller") and a party that processes personal data solely on the controller's behalf and according to the controller's instructions (called a "processor"). We are the controller in respect of the processing described in this Privacy Notice. That said, in respect of certain personal data, we serve as a processor. Please see the section below on Personal Data We Collect as a Processor for more information.
Definitions and Recommendations
When we refer to "services" or “solution”, we mean artificial intelligence based solution for employees' engagement analysis, managerial issues detection and employees' resignation prediction services.
When we refer to "personal data", we mean information that is defined as personal data under law. This includes information that identifies you directly or indirectly, including unique identifiers like IP addresses or cookie IDs.
When we refer to "you", we mean visitors to our website/job applicants and event participants and any user of our solution as applicable, including our customers (the “Customers”).
A Note on Legal Bases
Certain jurisdictions only allow the processing of personal data where a legal basis has been established. Under the EU's General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), the possible legal bases include (but are not limited): your consent, the processing is necessary to perform a contract with you, the processing is necessary to fulfill our legal obligations, or a company has a legitimate business interest to process your personal data. Where we are a controller, we only collect and process data where we have established a legal basis. Below you can find more details about specific legal bases.
We process certain personal data about our Customers' employees when we provide services to our Customers. In that case, we serve as a processor and the Customer serves as a controller. We process that data on behalf of the relevant Customer and according to its instructions. If you are an employee of one of our Customers, we may process personal data about you that includes employment data (tenure, salary, manager, level, current job title, vacation days, benefits, and historical changes of the above), personal data (gender, ethnicity, age, marital status), Company’s messaging and scheduling meta-data (usage patterns only, no content)]. As we use data from multiple data sources, we may use your email address as an identifier to synchronize between these data sources. After the synchronization is complete, we delete your email address and replace it with a unique identifier generated using a UUID4 anonymization protocol.
Special Categories of Data: In the course of providing our services to our Customer, we may also collect data relating to your ethnicity, which is subject to special protections under the law. We will only collect such data if you have provided it to your employer voluntarily.

What are cookies?
A cookie is a small piece of text that is sent to your browser by a website you visit. This piece of text acts as a sort of tag, letting the website know that it's you (really, your device) that's visiting. There are other technologies that act similarly, like web beacons, pixel tags, and Device IDs for apps, but for simplicity's sake we'll refer to them all as "cookies".
Websites can place their own cookies (called "first-party cookies") but can also place cookies from other sites (called "third-party cookies"). If your browser holds both first and third-party cookies for a given website, both the website and the third party are notified when you visit the site. We may place both first and third-party cookies on our site.
While the specific names and types of cookies we use may change from time to time, they generally fall into one of the categories listed below. We will not place any cookies on your browser that are not strictly necessary unless you have first consented to receive them.

By changing your device settings, you can prevent your device's ad identifier being used for interest-based advertising, or you can reset your device's ad identifier.

Typically, you can find the ad identifier settings under "privacy" or "ads" in your device's settings, although settings may vary from device to device. Adjusting your preferences does not mean you will no longer receive ads, it only means the ads that you do see can be less relevant to your interests.
