COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

 

Information You Provide to Us

We collect information you provide directly to us.  For example, we collect information when you send us a message through TEAM Websites, provide us with your business card at an event, fill out a form or survey, are referred for or apply to a job, request services or customer support, or otherwise communicate with us.  The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, postal address, phone number, account or employment related information, and any other information you choose to provide.

 

Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, when we receive a referral for a worker for hire, we may collect information about the client/service recipient as applicable, including information about their name, address, date of birth, and nature of services requested. We may also collect information about the referred worker, such as their name, address, date of birth and other employment related information.

 

Additionally, if you are referred to us for employment purposes, we may collect information about you from identity verification and background check services.

 


USE OF INFORMATION

 

We use the information we collect to respond to inquiries, process job employment referral information and to provide, maintain and improve our services. We also use the information we collect to:

 

  • Communicate with you about products, services, and events offered by TEAM and others, and provide news and information we think will be of interest to you (see “Your Choices” below for information about how to opt out of these communications at any time);
  • Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages and to respond to your comments, questions, and customer service requests;
  • Determine your eligibility for employment with us;
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, and protect the rights and property of TEAM and others;
  • Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;
  • For limited internal uses, provided the personal information is not disclosed to another third party and is not used to build a profile about you or otherwise alter your experience outside the current interaction; and
  • Carry out any other purpose described to you at the time the information was collected.

 


SHARING OF INFORMATION

 

We may share information about you as follows or as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy:

 

  • With vendors, service providers, and consultants that perform services for us, including background check services, administering health and welfare benefits, and backup and storage of data and CRM services;
  • In response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law or legal process, including lawful requests by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements;
  • If we believe your actions are inconsistent with our policies, if we believe you have violated the law, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of TEAM or others;
  • In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company;
  • Between and among TEAM and our current and future parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and other companies under common control and ownership; and
  • With your consent or at your direction.

We may also share aggregated or de-identified information that cannot reasonably be used by those third parties to identify you.

 


TRANSFER OF INFORMATION WITHIN THE U.S. AND OTHER COUNTRIES

 

TEAM is based in the United States and we process and store information in the United States.  Therefore, we and our service providers may transfer your information to, or store or access it with, equivalent levels of data protection across the United States.
