COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We provide workplace software to small businesses to enable them to onboard employees, monitor employee time off, manage employee development and performance reviews, organize employee data and store employee files. In the course of providing these services to our customers, we collect and use personal information of our customers’ employees and other representatives (“Customer Information”). In addition, we collect personal information on our own behalf in limited circumstances, such as in connection with visits to our Website, job applications, responding to customer enquiries, and to send marketing communications (“Other Information”).

Information we process on behalf of our customers:

People by Wagepoint Services: In the course of providing the People by Wagepoint services, we collect and use Customer Information which is comprised of personal information that our customers upload or otherwise provide to us through the Website. This information includes, but is not limited to, employee/representative contact information, employee employment information (such as SIN number, benefits information, salary information and emergency contact information), performance reviews, electronic signatures, time off requests and employee onboarding information. Customer Information will be used by us in accordance with a customer’s instructions, including to provide the services, any applicable terms in the Terms of Service and as required by applicable law.

We use Other Information to operate our services, Website and business. More specifically, we process Other Information for the purposes below. We must receive or collect some information to operate, provide, improve, understand, support, and market our services. For example, you must provide an email address to create an account to use our services.

The information we collect includes name, company email address, company address, company phone number, and billing and payment information. We use this information to create and administer the account.

SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We do not sell or disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent, except as set forth below or as required or permitted by law.

Service Providers: Your personal information will be transferred (or otherwise made available) to certain third parties that provide services on our behalf. We use service providers to provide services such as hosting the Website, processing payments, call recording, and providing advertising, analytics and marketing services.

Our service providers may be located in the U.S., Canada, or other foreign jurisdictions.

Legal and Compliance: We and our Canadian, U.S. and other foreign service providers may provide your personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to another organization for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or contravention of law or detecting, suppressing or preventing fraud, or as otherwise may be required or permitted by applicable Canadian, U.S. or other law or legal process, which may include lawful access by U.S. or foreign courts, law enforcement or other government authorities. Your personal information may also be disclosed where necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspected loss or harm to persons or property. Where a disclosure of our customers’ information is required by applicable law, we notify our customer prior to complying with such requirements (to the extent we are not prohibited from doing so) and co-operate with our customer’s instructions with respect to our response.

Sale of Business: We may transfer any information we have about you as an asset in connection with a proposed or completed merger, acquisition, or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of People by Wagepoint or as part of a corporate reorganization or other change in corporate control.

INFORMATION ABOUT OUR WEBSITE

Visiting our Website: In general, you can visit our Website without telling us who you are or submitting any personal information. However, we collect the IP (Internet protocol) addresses of all visitors to our Website and other related information such as page requests, browser type, operating system and average time spent on our Website. We use this information to help us understand our Website activity and to monitor and improve our Website.

Cookies: Our Website uses a technology called "cookies". A cookie is a tiny element of data that our Website sends to a user’s browser, which may then be stored on the user’s hard drive so that we can recognize the user’s computer or device when they return. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to not accept certain cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from our Website, you may not be able to take advantage of all of the Website features.

Analytics: We may use a third-party such as Google Analytics to help us gather and analyze information about the areas visited on the Website (such as the pages most read, time spent, search terms and other engagement data) in order to evaluate and improve the user experience and the Website. These third parties may use cookies and other tracking technologies.

Third-Party Links: Our Website may contain links to other websites that People by Wagepoint does not own or operate. We provide links to third-party websites as a convenience to the user. These links are not intended as an endorsement of or referral to the linked websites. The linked websites have separate and independent privacy policies, notices, and terms of use. We do not have any control over such websites, and therefore we have no responsibility or liability for the manner in which the organizations that operate such linked websites may collect, use, or disclose, secure and otherwise treat personal information. We encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.

INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING

We work with third-parties such as ad networks and other advertising companies that use their own tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) on our Website in order to provide you with tailored advertisements across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your activity on our Website and third-party websites (such as web pages you visit and your interaction with our advertising and other communications) and use this information to make predictions about your preferences, develop personalized content and deliver ads that are more relevant to you on third party websites. This information may also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns.

Opting-out of Interest-Based Advertising: For more information about interest-based advertising and to understand your options, including how you can opt-out of receiving behavioural ads from third-party advertising companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada website at http://youradchoices.ca/choices.

  • Please note that even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a third party, these tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will be less targeted to you and your interests.

    To successfully opt out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser’s instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Your opt-out only applies to the web browser you use so you must opt-out of each web browser on each computer you use. Once you opt out, if you delete your browser’s saved cookies, you will need to opt-out again.

We do not respond to browser-based Do Not Track signals or similar signals.
