    Privacy Notice for California Residents

    Privacy Rights for California Residents

    California residents have certain rights regarding their Personal Data. Subject to certain exceptions, if you are a California resident, you may request:  

    • access to your Personal Data including the right to know the categories of Personal Data we have or will collect about you and the reason we will or have collected such information;
    • correction of the Personal Data that we have or will hold about you that is inaccurate; and
    • deletion or removal of your Personal Data. 

    You also have the right not to be discriminated against (as provided for in California law) for exercising your rights.

    Exceptions to Your Rights: There are certain exceptions to these above rights. For instance, we may retain your Personal Data if it is reasonably necessary for us or our service providers to provide a service that you have requested or to comply with law or to detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity or prosecute those responsible for that activity.

    Exercising Your Rights: To exercise one of the rights above, you may contact us as provided below.

    We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request. In doing so, we may ask you for verification information so that we can match at least two verification points with information we maintain in our files about you. If we are unable to verify you through this method, we shall have the right, but not the obligation, to request additional information from you.

    California law places certain obligations on businesses that “sell” Personal Data to third parties or “share” Personal Data with third parties for “cross-context behavioral advertising” as those terms are defined under the CCPA. We do not “sell” or “share” the Personal Data covered by this Policy and have not done so in the twelve months prior to the effective date of this Policy.

     

    Sensitive personal data

    Some Personal Data may be considered sensitive personal information under certain privacy laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Sensitive personal information may include, for example, government-issued identification number, information relating to a person's race or ethnic origin, political opinions or religious beliefs, physical or mental health or condition, sexual orientation, or trade union membership. It may include information about an individual's criminal offenses or convictions, as well as any other information deemed sensitive under applicable data protection laws.

    Salsify does not request sensitive Personal Data in connection with recruiting and your application unless permitted or required by local law (for example, for equal opportunity monitoring or internal policies related to diversity and anti-discrimination). Where required by applicable data protection or privacy law, we will obtain your consent to our use of your sensitive Personal Data.

    When Sensitive Personal Data is collected for the employment relationship between you and Salsify, we only collect such information for the purposes disclosed in this Notice, and not for any purposes for which California law provides a "right to limit" such use. Pursuant to the forgoing, we use such information only as necessary to conduct our employment relationship with you, in the following ways:

    • Social Security number or passport information for legal compliance, payroll, benefits, tax, and immigration purposes.
    • Health information, which may include disability status, to provide reasonable workplace accommodations and manage absences, for workplace health and safety purposes, and for compliance with applicable law and contracts or to exercise rights thereunder.
    • Racial/ethnic origin, citizenship/immigration status, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and/or disability status for equal opportunity and diversity, equity and inclusion purposes and compliance with applicable law or to exercise rights thereunder.

     

    Residents of the European Economic Area and United Kingdom

    You may have legal rights under applicable law, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applicable to EU residents' personal data or UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) if you are a resident of the United Kingdom.  This privacy notice describes how we collect and use personal information about you during and after your working relationship with us, in accordance with the GDPR and UK GDPR.  

     

    Our Legal Bases for Storing and Processing Your Personal Data

    Our legal bases for processing your Personal Data, in the ways described in this Policy, include:

    • As necessary to prepare and enter into an employment contract with you.
    • Consistent with specific consents, which you may revoke at any time.
    • As necessary to comply with our legal obligations.
    • To protect your vital interests or those of others.
    • As necessary for legitimate interests, including interests in considering candidates for current and future employment opportunities, and in managing and improving our recruitment and hiring processes, unless those interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, which require protection of personal data.

     

    International Transfers

    We will protect your personal information when it is transferred outside of the EEA by:

    • Processing it in a territory which the European Commission has determined provides an adequate level of protection for personal information; or
    • Otherwise implementing appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information, including implementing the European Commission's standard contractual clauses.

     

    Data with special protections 

    Information such as health information is subject to special protections. We may process such data where necessary to carry out our obligations or for the establishment, exercise or defense of a legal claim by us, or with your explicit consent, or for the exercising of our rights or your rights in the context of employment or social security law. For example, we may need to process information about your health to accommodate any special needs you have if you are selected for an interview.

     

    Your Privacy Rights: access, correction, erasure, and restriction

    Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

    • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a data subject access request). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
    • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
    • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
    • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
    • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
    • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party. If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact privacy@salsify.com.

    Salsify will review and update this Policy periodically in response to changing legal, technical, and business developments. When we update this Policy, we will note the date of its most recent revision above. If we make material changes to this Policy, we may take appropriate measures to inform you in a manner that is consistent with the significance of the changes we make. We encourage you to review this Policy frequently for information on how Salsify is processing your information.
