3. BOND INTERNATIONAL SOFTWARE'S SOFTWARE AS A SERVICE (SaaS) PRIVACY POLICY

Bond International Software provides our customers with applications that facilitate many Human Resource related requirements. These applications are not a part of our corporate web site. Bond International Software serves as a Data Processor for the clients who use these applications. More specifically, Bond International Software does not own the information that is submitted to our applications. The information that is submitted to our applications will be subject to our clients’ privacy policies. The following information discloses how information is submitted via our applications and how we handle the information for our clients who are the owners of this data. Bond International Software is a leading end-to-end provider of software, proprietary content, services and process outsourcing that enable organizations to more effectively recruit and retain employees. This SaaS Privacy Policy applies only to the transfer of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") received by Bond International Software in any format through its hosted software, whether supplied directly by Bond International Software customers or by employees or users of the hosted software anywhere in the world.

Notice/Use of Personal Information

Because it supplies a hosted system, Bond International Software operates as a data processor for its customers. Bond International Software’s customers act as data controllers. Individual users involved in employment activities may interact directly with Bond International Software’s customers rather than with Bond International Software. Bond International Software provides its customers with the option of disclosing their relationship with Bond International Software by providing notice to individual employees and candidates of the customer regarding the Bond International Software technology that they use. Bond International Software maintains only that Personal Information which its customers have asked Bond International Software to process. It is the Bond International Software customer's responsibility to ensure that the data the customer collects can be legally collected in the country of origin. The Bond International Software customer is responsible for giving its employees, applicants and users the appropriate level of notification that Personal Information is being collected and maintained.

Notification of Changes/Choice

Bond International Software will maintain Personal Information in accordance with this SaaS Privacy Policy. If Bond International Software decides to change this Policy, Bond International Software will post the changes on this page so our customers and/or their employees, applicants and users are aware of what Personal Information Bond International Software processes, how Bond International Software uses it, and under what circumstances, if any, Bond International Software discloses it. If at any point Bond International Software decides to retain or use Personal Information in a different manner, Bond International Software will notify its customers by way of email or by posting a notice on Bond International Software’s website for at least 30 days prior to the change in use. Customers, in turn, are responsible for their users and providing them a choice as to whether or not Bond International Software uses their Personal Information in this revised manner.

Onward Transfer

Bond International Software is a global corporation with operations in several countries.  We have developed global data practices designed to assure Personal Information is appropriately protected. While our primary data centres are in the UK, USA and Australia we may transfer Personal Information to Bond International Software offices outside of the UK and United States.  In addition, we may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf.  If we disclose Personal Information to a third party or to Bond International Software employees outside of the UK, United States or Australia, we will ensure that such party has agreed to abide by the principles of this policy, or can otherwise assure adequate protection of such Personal Information.

Data Integrity

Bond International Software will use Personal Information only in ways compatible with the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by our customers.

Security

Bond International Software is committed to ensuring the security of the Personal Information that it processes. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of Personal Information, Bond International Software has adopted appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the Personal Information we process. Bond International Software strives to protect the privacy of the Personal Information it processes, and inadvertent disclosure is unlikely. In the event of such an inadvertent disclosure, Bond International Software will take all commercially reasonable steps to limit and remedy the disclosure. However, Bond International Software cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat those procedures or use Personal Information for improper purposes.

Access/Correction 
In most cases, when Bond International Software collects Personal Information, it does so on behalf of another company (as an agent or data processor). To request access to, correction, amendment or deletion of this Personal Information, a user should contact the company to which the data was provided.

Oversight/Enforcement

Bond International Software has a Privacy Officer who is responsible for Bond International Software’s compliance with and enforcement of this Policy. Bond International Software’s Privacy Officer is available to any of its employees, customers, vendors, business partners, or others who may have questions concerning this Policy or data security practices. Bond International Software’s Privacy Officer may be contacted by email to customerservices@bond.co.uk. Bond International Software has agreed to cooperate with Data Protection Authorities. Any questions, comments or complaints about the data practices (including, without limitation, compliance with data privacy principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, access, security, data integrity, or enforcement) of a hosted software customer for which Bond International Software processes data should be addressed to that customer.
