Whether you’re a current PeopleConnect team member or you’re applying to be part of our team, it’s important to us that you’re aware of the personal information we collect, how we use that information, and how you’re empowered to opt-out, correct, delete, or change that information.
The terms “PeopleConnect,” “we,” “us,” and “our” in this Privacy Notice apply to all companies in the PeopleConnect family of companies, which includes The Control Group Media Company, LLC, TruthFinder LLC, Instant Checkmate, LLC, Intelius, LLC, PeopleConnect, Inc. (d/b/a Classmates.com), Intelicare Direct, LLC, as well as any other parents, affiliates or subsidiaries that may now exist or we may form in the future. This Privacy Notice applies to all our applicants and prospective employees (collectively, “Applicants”) and current and former employees, officers, directors, contractors, agents contingent and other personnel (collectively, “Workers”), whose personal information is collected and processed by us in the ordinary course of our business, as well as Applicant’s and Workers’ emergency contacts and beneficiaries.
We are committed to complying with all applicable data privacy laws regarding the personal information of Applicants and Workers. Applicants, Workers, emergency contacts and beneficiaries with disabilities may access this notice in an alternative format by contacting [email protected]. We do not sell your personal information.
The personal information we may collect about you includes:
We may also collect other information from you, such as:
Apart from information you provide directly, PeopleConnect also collects information automatically from you while you work for us. For example, like most companies, we receive data like your internet protocol (IP) address, your location based on your IP address or activities, identifiers associated with your computer or device, cell phone-related information, activity logs, and other information about activities you engage in while you use our equipment, accounts, systems, and networks.
Our hope and goal is to collect only information and data that we need to conduct our work, fulfill our obligations to you, comply with our legal obligations, and otherwise help you be successful at PeopleConnect.
For Applicants, we collect your data to determine if you’re a good fit for our team, and to help you get on board if we make you an offer. For Workers, we ask for items like bank information so you can be paid. In the event you get hurt or we need to reach out to your emergency contact, we need to know who to call. When you’re at our office, we want to keep you safe and provide efficient resources, including IT and Human Resources support. If you reach out to us with questions about benefits, we want to give you the best service—so we may ask for personal information to get you the right responses. We also need your information to support our HR operations generally (administration, communication, running diversity and inclusion initiatives, worker safety, absence management, helpdesk and IT support services), and to comply with the law (for example, for fraud prevention, network and information security, to disclose to affiliated organizations for administrative tasks, Worker monitoring for safety or management, whistleblowing requirements, for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, to perform internal and/or external or governmental compliance investigations or audits, and for research purposes). Finally, various governments also require that we collect information like your Social Security number to ensure we follow all laws and fulfill our obligations and get you your money legally.
Note that it’s possible that your information will be shared, processed, and kept in a country different from where you live. To help keep your personal data safe, we keep informed of local laws and take best efforts to follow them.
Vendors and other companies we work with, like those we use for HR and IT needs, may require that we provide them with your information. There may also be situations where we have to share personal information with our company affiliates and subsidiaries to support our business. Similarly, if we’re served with a court order, a subpoena, or receive a proper request from law enforcement, we would have to comply with that. We might also share your information if we reasonably believe it is necessary to protect the rights or safety of you or the team.
Note that if something were to happen to PeopleConnect as a company, such as us being involved in an actual or proposed merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another entity, that might entail your personal information being seen by or transferred to an outside party (such as an investor).
So, what are your rights and obligations? For example, if you’re thinking about joining PeopleConnect, but you don’t want to know about future job opportunities, and only want us to use your information for the purpose of considering your suitability for the specific position for which you applied, you can let us know that by emailing Human Resources at the email listen below. In some instances, you can opt out of certain uses and disclosures of your personal information.
Depending on where you live, you also can request confirmation of whether we are processing your personal information, get a copy of that data, receive an electronic copy of the data you gave us, correct inaccurate information we have, object to or restrict the use of your data, or ask for your personal information to be deleted. In as much as we can do all of that while complying with our legal and other obligations, we will do so. Note that we’ll also take steps to verify your identity before fulfilling your request. You can also file a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe our processing of your personal information violates applicable law.
We’ve all seen news of data leaks from other companies—and those are unfortunate when they happen. Please know that we take seriously the trust you place in us to protect your information. We work hard to ensure that your information is kept secure and in accordance with this Privacy Notice. That said, despite best efforts and considering all potential situations, there exists the possibility of unauthorized disclosure. If that does happen, we’ll work with you and help you to be consistent with our legal obligations. However, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we do not accept liability for unauthorized disclosure of your information.

We do not endorse, screen, or approve these third-party services, and are not responsible for their privacy practices or content. Visiting these other websites or applications is at your own risk.
