3. What are cookies and how do we use them and other technologies?
A cookie is a small piece of information that a website, online application, or email may save to your browser or your computer’s hard drive for use in subsequent visits to the website or online application. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive new cookies or how to disable cookies altogether. If you reject cookies, you may not be able to participate in certain activities or receive a promotion tailored to you. Employee Cycle does not control and does not guarantee the effectiveness of browser-based tools for managing cookies.
Employee Cycle does not currently participate in interest-based or behavioral online advertising, and information automatically collected from the Site is not used by Employee Cycle for that purpose.
Employee Cycle may use Google Analytics to evaluate use of the Site for our internal purposes such as evaluating usages of the Site. To learn how Google Analytics collects and processes data, please visit: “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners.
Do Not Track (DNT): This is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web Consortium, or W3C, has not yet established universal standards for recognizable DNT signals, and therefore Employee Cycle and the Site do not recognize DNT.
4. How does Employee Cycle protect personal information?
Where applicable, Employee Cycle uses industry-standard technology in connection with our Client Services and on the Site to help protect personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Personal information received from our clients or others in connection with Client Services is typically stored on servers hosted by our clients or their vendors—with limited exceptions, such as call recordings required by our client contracts for quality assurance or other legitimate purposes, personal information collected by our clients is not stored on our or our service provider’s services.
5. How long does Employee Cycle retain my personal information?
Personal information that we collect, access or process will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes for which it was collected, unless otherwise provided for under services contracts with clients or as required or authorized by law. Personal information that is no longer required to fulfil the identified purposes will be destroyed, erased or deidentified.
6. What are my choices concerning my personal information?
Employee Cycle depends primarily on our clients to notify and provide their customers and employees choices regarding the personal information that they provide. Our clients are therefore responsible for notification of purpose and for obtaining appropriate consent, to the extent required by law, when they collect personal information that is transferred to Employee Cycle.
In addition, as part of the Client Services, our clients may use personal information that we have collected on their behalf for their own communication and promotional purposes. Our clients are responsible for ensuring that any commercial emails sent by them to their employees or customers comply with applicable law. If we are instructed by our clients to transmit communications on their behalf, clients remain responsible for ensuring that recipients have consented to receiving such communications and that the information contained in the communications are accurate and complete.
We do not sell, rent, or share the personal information of our clients’ employees or their customers with third parties for their own marketing purposes.
Employee Cycle may, subject to applicable laws, use personal information from our clients and their employees to contact them about our Site and Client Services, including to provide them with information on additional products from Employee Cycle that may be of interest to them. Client contacts may exercise choices regarding these communications as follows:
•Mail marketing, Telephone marketing, Surveys and Quality control communications. You may decide that you prefer Employee Cycle not to use your personal information to promote new and/or additional products and/or services which may be of interest to you and refuse that we contact you by mail or telephone for marketing purposes or by email or telephone for quality control purposes. If this is the case, you may advise us by contacting customer service or contacting us using the information detailed in Section 14 below.
•Emails/Commercial Electronic Communications. You can always limit the communications that Employee Cycle sends to you. To opt-out of commercial emails, simply click the link labeled “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” at the bottom of any commercial electronic communication we send you. Please note that even if you opt-out of promotional communications, we may still need to contact you with important information about your account.
8. What is Employee Cycle’s policy on kids’ privacy?
Employee Cycle and our Site are not directed toward children and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information online from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If Employee Cycle learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personal information online without parental consent, we will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law). If you become aware of any personal information we have collected from children under age 13, please contact us using the information detailed in the Contacting Us section below.
9. Access, Objection, Correction and Deletion
In certain jurisdictions, you may have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether your personal information is being processed, information about the purposes of that processing, and information about the recipients to whom your personal data have been or will be disclosed. You may also have the right to receive a copy of the personal data you have provided and/or request its deletion.
Our clients are responsible for managing any request made by their employees or customers regarding access to and rectification of their personal information that is transferred to us. However, if you have questions about your rights, please feel free to contact using the contact information detailed in the Contacting Us section below.
10. Your California Privacy Rights

11. Cross-border transfer of personal information
In some cases, personal information that we process, including information from our clients and their employees and/or customers located in various countries, including in Canada, the EU and Switzerland or relative to queries or visitors to the Site may be transferred to the United States or other countries that may not have data privacy laws that provide the same protection as the countries where you reside. You understand that your personal information may therefore be transferred, processed and stored outside of your country of residence, and therefore may be available to government authorities under lawful orders and laws applicable in such foreign jurisdictions.
12. Right to Lodge Complaints
We are transparent about the ways in which we collect and use personal information, and welcome your questions and concerns. If you have any concern or complaint about the way we handle your personal information, please contact us as described below. To the extent you believe we have not addressed your concerns or otherwise choose to do so, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in the country where you reside and/or in the United States.
