- Personal Data That We Receive From Our Customers:
In addition to our own data processing involving Personal Data, PointHR may process certain Customer data at the direction of our Customers which may potentially include Personal Data. In such instances, PointHR is acting as the data processor on behalf, and pursuant to the instructions, of our Customers, who act as the data controller (an entity that determines the purposes and means for processing personal data). If you have any questions about our processing of this information, you are advised to contact the PointHR’s Customer who has directed us to process the particular information.

Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
PointHR may disclose Personal Data to third-party service providers (such as providers of compute and storage resources) who perform certain services or provide certain solutions on our behalf and under our instructions as necessary in connection with the performance of requested services or solutions. PointHR maintains contracts with these third parties restricting their access, use and disclosure of Personal Data in compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles.
PointHR may also disclose Personal Data as required or permitted by law, or when PointHR believes that disclosure is necessary to protect its rights or to comply with a judicial proceeding, a court order, a law enforcement request, or other legal process, or lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
In addition to the above, we may share Personal Data about you with others to the extent you consent to such sharing.
PointHR will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether their Personal Data is (a) to be disclosed to third parties, except when disclosure is made to a third party that is acting as an agent to perform task(s) on our behalf and under our instructions or (b) to be used for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. PointHR will provide individuals with clear, conspicuous and readily available mechanisms to exercise their choices should applicable circumstances arise. In order to request that PointHR not use an individual’s Personal Data, such individual should contact PointHR by email at: answers@PointHR.com.
Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation:
Consistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, we will limit collection of Personal Data to the information that is relevant for the purposes of processing and we will not process such Personal Data in a way that is incompatible with the purposes for which it has been collected or subsequently authorized by you. To the extent necessary for those purposes, we will also take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete and current. We will adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles for as long as we retain Personal Data about you.
Accountability for Onward Transfer:
Pursuant to the Privacy Shield Principles, PointHR remains accountable for Personal Data that it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party agent. In particular, PointHR remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process the personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, unless PointHR proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
We are committed to securing all Personal Data provided to us. We have deployed and maintain reasonable and appropriate process and technology measures to provide reasonable assurance that your Personal Data is secured against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
Upon request, PointHR will grant individuals reasonable access to Personal Data that it holds about them. In addition, PointHR will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information where it is inaccurate, or has been processed in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles.
PointHR will process all reasonable requests for access within a reasonable time period, but reserves the right to restrict access in cases where the legitimate rights of persons other than the individual would be violated or where the burden or cost of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy.
