Skuid, Inc. (Skuid) participates in the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks regarding the collection, use, and retention of non-human resources personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland that may be processed using Skuid products and services. We have certified with the Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles described at www.privacyshield.gov. The details of Skuid’s Privacy Shield certification can be viewed here.
Processing of non-human resources personal information
Skuid is considered a Data Processor for non-human resources personal information related to providing products and services that our customers use to process their data in order to operate their business. Skuid customers decide what information they provide when using Skuid products and services. A wide variety of applications can be built using the Skuid products and services such as customer relationship management, customer service, data analytics, human capital management, enterprise resource planning, time sheet management, expense reporting, talent acquisition, and supplier registration. Examples of information processed include customer, lead, prospect, employee, financial, contact, billing resource planning, time tracking, expense, hiring and supplier information.
In the operation of Skuid products and services, Skuid may share non-human resources personal information we process with the certain types of third parties for the purposes stated below:
- Subsidiaries, affiliates, contractors and partners who process non-human resources personal information on behalf of Skuid to provide the services requested.
- Third party service providers contracted to provide services on Skuid’s behalf.
Under the Privacy Shield, Individuals from EU member countries and Switzerland are entitled to have access to non-human resources personal information that an organization maintains about them, to limit use and disclosure of their non-human resources personal information and to be able to correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate, or has been processed in violation of the Principles.
Although Skuid personnel have a limited ability to access data that customers submit using our products and services, Skuid will provide assistance in these situations where appropriate by working with the individuals and the customer to provide the necessary access and to correct, amend, or delete information except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.
If Skuid transfers non-human resources personal information received under the Privacy Shield to a third party, the third party’s access, use, and disclosure of the non-human resources personal information must also be in compliance with Skuid’s Privacy Shield obligations. Skuid will remain liable under the Privacy Shield for any failure to do so by the third party unless we prove we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the failure.z
If you have any inquiries or complaints about Skuid’s handling of your non-human resources personal information under Privacy Shield, or about our privacy practices in general, please contact us at: infosec@skuid. We will respond to your inquiry within 45 days.
In the event we are unable to resolve your concern, Skuid commits to cooperate with the relevant EU Data Protection Authority and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner and comply with their advice regarding personal and human resource data transfers and the Privacy Shield Principles. Per the terms of the frameworks and under certain circumstances, you may invoke binding arbitration.
Skuid participates in the VeraSafe Privacy Shield Dispute Resolution Procedure. Subject to the terms of the VeraSafe Privacy Shield Resolution Procedure, VeraSafe will provide appropriate recourse services free of charge to you. To file a complaint with VeraSafe, please submit the required information to VeraSafe at: https://www.verasafe.com/privacy-services/dispute-resolution/submit-dispute/
If neither Skuid nor Verasafe resolves your complaint, the Privacy Shield Framework provides the right to invoke binding arbitration to resolve complaints not resolved by other means, as described in Annex I to the Privacy Shield Principles located here.
Skuid is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). In addition, Skuid may be required to disclose non-human resources personal information that we handle under the Privacy Shield in response to lawful requests by public authorities as needed to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
