YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT TO PAR 

PaR Systems, LLC (PaR) is committed to respecting an individuals privacy. While PaR had developed this policy with the intent of meeting the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we are committed to meeting the same standards across the global organization.

PaR complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States. PaR has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles. If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.

PaR and all of its subsidiaries adhere to the Privacy Shield. PaR collects information about employees that are required to support payroll, benefits, background checks, and personnel matters related to performance. PaR does not sell or release any personal data to third parties other than those it uses in the process of supporting outsourced operations. Individuals have the right to access their personal data and should contact the Privacy Officer if they have concerns about the data that is collected or would like to limit it any way. Most, if not all, data collected is required in order to be employed by PaR or in the process of doing business with PaR.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, PaR commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. Individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact PaR at:

PaR commits to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and comply with the advice given by the panel with regard to personal data transferred from the EU. The Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction over PaR's compliance with the Privacy Shield.

Individuals have the possibility, under certain conditions, to invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance not resolved by any of the other Privacy Shield mechanisms. See Annex I for additional information: https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction.

PaR has a legal requirement to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements. In the context of an onward transfer, PaR is responsible for the processing of personal information it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. PaR uses third parties to support background checks, payroll and benefits.

PaR does not collect identifying information about you, unless you voluntarily submit that information. Please do not provide to PaR any confidential information about you or anyone else via electronic communication, except for employment purposes.

Employment information is kept confidential.
