Sources of Personal Information

Some of the Personal Information that we collect about you comes from you. For example, you tell us your contact details. Other Personal Information about you is generated from references and third party companies such as recruitment agencies.

Purposes for collecting Personal Information

  1. Recruitment
    If you are applying for a role at Sift, we collect and use this Personal Information primarily for recruitment purposes – in particular, to determine your qualifications for employment and to reach a hiring decision. This includes assessing your skills, qualifications, and background for a particular role, verifying your information, carrying out reference checks or background checks (where applicable), and to generally manage the hiring process and communicate with you about it. If relevant, we may also process information concerning your health, any disability and in connection with any adjustments to working arrangements.

  2. Contacting you or others on your behalf
    We may use your Personal Information to contact you or reach out to others including your references or next of kin.

  3. Security
    We may use your Personal Information, such as CCTV footage, to assess and maintain the security of our offices and facilities.

  4. Monitoring of diversity and equal opportunities
    In some circumstances, we may need to collect, or request on a voluntary disclosure basis, some Personal Information for equal opportunities monitoring, to uphold our commitments to diversity and inclusion, to comply with anti-discrimination laws, or for government reporting obligations.

Sift does not:

  • “Sell” your Personal Information or “Share” (for cross-context behavioral advertising) your Personal Information as those terms are defined by CCPA;

  • Have actual knowledge that Sift Sells or Shares Personal Information of consumers under 16 years of age; or

  • Use or disclose your Sensitive Personal Information for purposes other than those set forth in by the CCPA.

Who we disclose your Personal Information to for business or commercial purposes

We may disclose each category of Personal Information we collect with other members of the Sift entity group and to third parties who provide services to us on a “need to know basis” for the purposes specified in Section 4 above.

If you are unsuccessful, your Personal Information will normally be destroyed twenty-four months after you have been informed that you were unsuccessful. Irrelevant Personal Information such as video surveillance or CCTV images, if applicable, may be deleted after a short period.

The CCPA provides you certain rights regarding your Personal Information including:

  • The right to know what Personal Information we have collected about you, including the categories of Personal Information, the categories of sources from which the Personal Information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling, or sharing Personal Information, the categories of third parties to whom we disclose Personal Information, and the specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you.

  • The right to correct inaccurate Personal Information that we maintain about you.

Exercising your rights

You may exercise your rights under California law by submitting a request by one of the following methods: (i) send an email to us at [email protected], (ii) complete this webform, or (iii) call us toll free at 877-571-0124. To protect your privacy and security, we may need to take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to your request.
