Glassdoor General EEA Safe Harbor Notice
Scope of Safe Harbor Certification
Glassdoor, Inc. ("Glassdoor" or "we") recognize that the European Community has established a data protection regime pursuant to Directive 95/46/EC, which applies to the European Economic Area ("EEA") and that Switzerland ("CH") has also established a data protection regime which applies to CH that restricts companies in the EEA/CH in transferring personal data about individuals in the EEA/CH to the United States, unless there is "adequate protection" for such personal data when it is received in the United States. To create such "adequate protection" and allow our subsidiaries and business partners to overcome the restriction on international data transfers established by the Directive and Swiss legislation, we adhere to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles published by the US Department of Commerce ("Safe Harbor Principles") with respect to personal data about individuals in the EEA/CH that we receive from our subsidiaries, customers and other business partners (“EEA/CH Data”). More information on the Safe Harbor Principles and Glassdoor's scope of participation is available here.
Scope of this Notice
Categories of EEA/CH Data
We receive certain information related to individual independent contractors, employees, and individual representatives of Glassdoor and its subsidiaries’ corporate business partners (including advertising customers). Such EEA/CH Data includes, without limitation, names, addresses, work phone numbers, work email addresses, and any other personal data that are affirmatively provided to Glassdoor in order to manage our business relationship.
We collect and use EEA/CH Data for purposes of providing products and services to our customers, communicating with corporate business partners about business matters, processing EEA/CH Data on behalf of corporate customers, transmitting marketing messages and performing other marketing activities, providing information on our services, processing job applications and conducting related tasks for legitimate business purposes.
We share EEA/CH Data with our subsidiaries, affiliates and contractors, who process EEA/CH Data on behalf of Glassdoor and its subsidiaries. We also share EEA/CH Data with other third parties for the purposes for which we receive the EEA/CH Data (e.g., performance of contractual obligations and rights), and we may also disclose EEA/CH Data where we are legally required to disclose (e.g., under statutes, contracts or otherwise) or the disclosure is permitted by law or the Safe Harbor Principles and we have a legitimate business interest in such disclosure.
With respect to marketing emails, EEA/CH Persons may opt-out of receiving further email marketing communications from Glassdoor by sending an email to the Safe Harbor Contact or by following opt-out instructions that are contained in each marketing email. EEA/CH Persons may also send an email to this address to ask to opt-out of disclosures to third parties, but such a limitation on data sharing may make it difficult or impossible for us to provide the requested services.
Access and Review
If you are an EEA/CH Person about whom we hold EEA/CH Data, you may request access to, and the opportunity to update, correct or delete, such EEA/CH Data. To submit such requests or raise any other questions, please contact the business that provided your EEA/CH Data to us. You can also contact our Safe Harbor Contact. We reserve the right to take appropriate steps to authenticate an applicant's identity, to charge an adequate fee before providing access and to deny requests, except as required by the Safe Harbor Principles.
