Sitel’s Safe Harbor Certification can be found at www.export.gov/safeharbor.
Accordingly, Sitel adheres to the following Safe Harbor Privacy Principles, as agreed to by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission.
This Safe Harbor Privacy Statement outlines our general policy and practices for implementing the Principles, and sets forth how Sitel handles personal data transferred from countries in the EEA to the United States that is collected in managing our workforce or received in conducting our outsourced business process and tele-services activities. This Statement covers the types of data Sitel gathers, how we use it, and the choices affected individuals have regarding our use of, and their ability to correct, that data.
The following terms are used throughout this document and defined here for clarification.
Agent: "Agent" means a third party that processes personal data solely on behalf of and under the instructions of Sitel.
Personal Data: "Personal data" means any data or set of data that (i) identifies or can reasonably be used to identify an individual, directly or indirectly, and (ii) in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more factors specific to physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.
Sensitive Data: "Sensitive data" means any personal data that reveals race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, or that concerns health or sex life. Data will be treated as sensitive personal data where it is received from a third party that treats and identifies it as sensitive.
Notice: Sitel will inform individuals about the purposes for which we collect and use personal data about them, how to contact us, the types of non-agent third parties with whom we may share personal data, and any ways that individuals may limit the use and sharing of such data. This notice will be provided when individuals are first asked to provide personal data or as soon thereafter as is practicable.
Choice: Sitel will offer an individual the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether personal data is (a) shared with a non-agent third party or (b) used for a purpose other than that for which the data were originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
For sensitive data, Sitel will give an individual an affirmative or explicit (opt in) choice if the data is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual except where permitted by law.
Access: Sitel will provide individuals with reasonable access to personal data about them and they may request the correction or amendment of personal data that they demonstrate to be incorrect or incomplete.
Onward Transfers to Agents: Sitel will only transfer personal data to an agent where Sitel has first ascertained that (i) the agent subscribes to these Principles or is subject to the European Commission’s Directive on Data Protection or another adequacy finding, or (ii) has obtained assurances from the agent by written agreement that it provides at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by these Principles. Where we have knowledge that an agent is using or sharing personal data in a way that is contrary to these Principles, Sitel will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop such processing.
Onward Transfer to Non-Agents: Sitel will only transfer personal data to a non-agent third party where consistent with the notice and choice Principles stated above.
Integrity: Sitel will only use and share personal data about individuals in a way that is consistent with the purposes for which the data were collected or subsequently authorized by those individuals. To the extent necessary for those purposes, Sitel will take reasonable steps to ensure that the data are accurate, complete, and current.
Information Security: Sitel will take reasonable precautions to protect personal data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
Enforcement: Sitel has put in place mechanisms to verify our ongoing adherence to these Principles. We encourage individuals covered by this Policy to raise any concerns that they have about the way that we process their personal data by contacting us at the address below, and we will do our best to resolve them. We have also agreed to participate in the dispute resolution program provided by the European Data Protection Authorities Panel.
