Version Date:  January 1, 2023

Purpose

Your privacy is important to us. The purpose of this document is to set out how Conductor LLC and its affiliates (“Conductor,” “us,” “our,” or “we”) collect, use, store, or otherwise process personal data about our employees (collectively, “you”), with whom we share it, and the rights to which you are afforded. This Employee Privacy Notice (“Notice”) does not cover your use of Conductor’s products or services as a consumer (for more information, please read our website privacy notice at https://www.conductor.com/privacy-policy/), or to any third-party websites and apps that you may use, including those to which we link in our websites. You should review the terms and policies for third-party websites and apps before clicking on any links. We recommend that you read this Notice in full to ensure you are fully informed about the manner in which we collect, use, store, or otherwise process your personal data as well as your privacy rights. For purposes of this Notice: The term “employee” refers to all current and former employees, directors, officers, and Board members of Conductor. For the purposes of this Notice, it also refers to independent contractors engaged by Conductor, even though they are not otherwise employees. The term “personal data” means any information which relates to an identified or identifiable, living individual that directly or indirectly references one or more factors specific to their physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity. Personal data excludes anonymous data. The term “sensitive personal data” means personal data of children, or personal data that reveals information about a living individual’s physical or mental health, racial or ethnic origin, political or religious views, trade union membership, sexual orientation, genetic information, biometric information, commission or alleged commission of crime or related proceedings, and, in some countries, financial information.
  1. Collection of Personal Data

Personal Data We Collect from You. Subject to applicable law, we may collect several types of personal data from you in connection with your employment with Conductor, which includes the following:
  • Identification Data. Such as your name, gender, photograph, date of birth, employee identification number, driver’s license, and languages.
  • Contact Information. Such as your home address, telephone number, email addresses, and emergency contact details.
  • Employment Details. Such as job title, position, office location, hire dates, employment contracts, performance and disciplinary records, grievance procedures, and sickness and vacation records.
  • Educational and Professional Background Data. Such as academic and professional qualifications, education records, CV/resumé, reference letters, interview notes, and criminal records data. Where permissible, criminal records data will be collected for vetting purposes and in accordance with applicable law.
  • National Identifiers. Such as national ID, passport, immigration status and documentation, visas, social security numbers (for US only), and national insurance numbers.
  • Spouse, Beneficiary, and Dependents Information, and Marital Status.
  • Financial Data. Such as banking details, tax information, payroll information, withholdings, salary, bonus, benefits, expenses, and company allowances.
  • Health Data. Such as information about short- or long-term disabilities or illnesses that you might share with your Human Resources Business Partner or manager, particularly in relation to any leave of absence you may need to take.
  • Monitoring Data. Such as identifiable images contained in CCTV footage, system and building login and access records, keystroke, download and print records, call recordings, data caught by IT security programs and filters (for further information about how we process information, see our “Monitoring” section below).
  • Other information. We also collect any additional information that you choose to share with us, such as hobbies, social preferences, or survey data.
We may also collect certain demographic data that qualifies as sensitive personal data, such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and disability to help us understand the diversity of our workforce. When collected, this sensitive personal data is generally done so on a voluntary consensual basis. Most often, the personal data we collect from employees is collected from them directly. In some cases, we may collect personal data about employees from third parties; for example, when we perform background screening checks that are necessary for the role to be performed by the employee. In most circumstances, we will get your permission before we collect personal data about you from a third party. If we ask you to provide any other personal data not described above, then the personal data we will ask you to provide, and the reasons why we ask you to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point we collect it. If we ask you to provide personal data that we consider to be mandatory for us to administer your employment relationship, we will inform you of such at the time of collection. In addition, we will also inform you of the consequences for not providing us with the mandatory personal data.
  1. Use of Personal Data

In general, and subject to applicable law, we use your personal data primarily for the purposes of managing our employment relationship with you, along with other legitimate business purposes. Such uses include:
  • Determining eligibility for hiring, ongoing employment, and eligibility for promotions, including the verification of references, qualifications, and criminal records checks data. Where permissible, criminal records data will be collected for vetting purposes and in accordance with applicable law;
  • Administering payroll and benefits, processing employee work-related claims (e.g., worker compensation, insurance claims, etc.), and processing leave of absence requests;
  • Establishing training and/or development requirements;
  • Reviewing work performance and determining performance requirements;
  • Enforcing disciplinary actions or termination;
  • Establishing emergency contacts and responding to emergencies;
  • Complying with applicable laws (e.g., labor and employment, health and safety, tax, and anti-discrimination laws), judicial requests from courts of competent jurisdiction, or exercising or defending legal rights;
  • Compiling internal directories, such as employee directories;
  • Preventing and detecting fraud or other types of wrongdoing;
  • Evaluating or conducting a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal data held by us is among the assets transferred;
  • Implementing and administering IT systems and information security, including authentication and authorization to access Conductor’s IT systems and networks;
  • Monitoring access to Conductor’s offices;
  • Fulfilling the purpose for which you provide it; and
  • For other lawful or legitimate purposes, which may be reasonably required for day-to-day operations, such as accounting, financial reporting, and business planning.
Other Uses.  If we need to process your personal data for an incompatible purpose not discussed in this Notice, we will provide notice to you and, if required by law, seek your consent. We may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent only where required by applicable law. Lastly, Conductor does not subject its employees to automated decision-making. Lawful Basis for Processing Your Personal Data. If applicable law requires a lawful basis for processing, our lawful basis for collecting and using the personal data described in this Notice will depend on the type of personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collect or use it. Depending on the jurisdiction in which you live, there may be other applicable lawful bases for processing your personal data that are not listed here. We normally collect or use personal data from you or others where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (e.g., to communicate with you, to manage your benefits, or to provide you with access to our IT systems), or where applicable, where we have obtained your consent to process for a specific purpose. In certain situations, we may have a legal obligation to collect or retain personal data (e.g., to comply with applicable employment and works council laws and regulations) or need the personal data to protect your vital interests or those of another person. When we process sensitive personal data about you, we will make sure that one or more of the lawful bases for processing sensitive personal data, as referenced above, applies. For instance, these include processing which is necessary for the purpose of satisfying our obligations in relation to employment law, processing related to data about you that you have made public, and processing which is necessary for the purpose of establishing, making or defending legal claims. If you have questions about or need further information concerning the lawful bases on which we collect, use, store, or otherwise process your personal data, please contact us using the contact details provided in Section 10 of this Notice.
  1. Personal Data Sharing

Conductor shares your data with those who need such access to perform their tasks and duties, and to third parties who have a legitimate purpose for processing or accessing it. Subject to applicable law, including consent (as required), we may share personal data to the following categories of recipients (where applicable):
  • Your personal data may be disclosed to Human Resources and other employees.
  • We may share your personal data with affiliates under common ownership or control with Conductor.
  • We may share your personal data with our owners, investors, or lenders for use, review, and analysis in their capacity as such.
  • Service Providers. We may share your personal data to our contractors, business partners, service providers, and other third parties who require the data to assist us in establishing, managing, or terminating your employment with us, including third parties that provide products or services to us and, by extension, to our employees.
  • Corporate Transactions. We may share your personal data to a potential buyer (and its agents and advisors) in connection with any proposed or actual merger, acquisition, or any form of sale or transfer of some or all of our assets (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution or liquidation), in which case, personal data held by us about you will be among the assets transferred to the buyer or acquirer.
  • Other Third Parties. We may share your personal data to a third party under the following circumstances where we, in good faith: (i) believe we are compelled by applicable law or regulation, judicial request from a court of competent jurisdiction, or another legal process or government authority; (ii) find it necessary to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights; (iii) seek to protect Conductor’s rights or property; (iv) seek to protect Conductor, our employees, our customers, or the public from harm or illegal activities; (v) seek to respond to an emergency which we believe, in good faith requires us to disclose data to prevent harm; and (vi) rely on your consent.
Please note that we do not sell (as defined in applicable data protection and privacy laws) your personal data (and will not sell it without providing any required notices and/or opt-in/opt-out rights). Subject to applicable law, your personal data may be processed in the countries where you are employed, the United States, or any other country where Conductor or its affiliates have operations. Any third party processing your personal data on behalf of Conductor must comply with all relevant privacy laws in order to protect your personal data in any country where they process or transfer your personal data. If Conductor transfers your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) to our affiliates or to a third party, Conductor has and will continue to implement measures with any such recipients of your personal data to ensure it remains protected in accordance with this Notice and applicable data protection laws and to ensure that the transfer is lawful and that there are appropriate security arrangements in place, including, where appropriate, the usage of the EU standard contractual clauses.
  1. Retention of Personal Data

Unless a longer retention period is required by law, we will retain your personal data for as long as is needed to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Notice or for as long as we have a legitimate business interest that is not outweighed by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal data, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (e.g., because your personal data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. As such, we reserve the right to use such anonymous data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to you or your consent.
  1. Monitoring

Conductor physically and electronically monitors its offices, information technology systems, and corporate network for specific, lawful purposes. Where permitted by applicable law, Conductor may monitor or record activities that involve employee personal data. For example, we may monitor employees’ activity and presence in our offices with badge readers, sign-in technology, and surveillance cameras, or we may monitor or record employees’ activity on our information technology systems and corporate network, such as internet traffic, website filtering, email communications, or systems accessed. We generally conduct monitoring to protect our employees, authorized visitors, and property, and to prevent unauthorized access to our offices.   In addition, Conductor may carry out monitoring for other purposes such as:
  • Validating business transactions;
  • Training and evaluation of employee performance;
  • Protecting confidential information, intellectual property, and other business interests;
  • Investigating breaches of Conductor’s policies and procedures, or other unlawful or improper acts;
  • Complying with legal obligations; or
  • Any other legitimate purpose permitted by applicable law.
  Conductor’s monitoring activities will be done in a manner that is proportionate to the underlying purpose and only as required or permitted by applicable law.

E. Your Rights Under the CCPA

As a California resident, you may have the rights listed below in relation to personal information that we have collected about you. However, these rights are not absolute, and in certain cases, we may decline your request as permitted by law.
Right to KnowThe right to request that we disclose to you the categories of personal information we collect, use or disclose, and information about our data practices.
Right to AccessThe right to access specific pieces of personal Information or categories of personal information collected about you and to know the source from which it was collected, the business or commercial purpose for which it was collected or shared and the categories of third parties with whom the personal information was shared.
Right to DeleteThe right to request that Conductor delete your personal information that we have collected from you.
Right to Correct The right to request that Conductor correct any inaccurate personal information that it maintains about you.
Right of No RetaliationThe right not to be discriminated against because you exercised any of your CCPA rights.
To exercise a CCPA consumer right as described above, you can submit a verifiable consumer request to us by emailing privacyrequests@Conductor.com.

Making a Verifiable Consumer Request:

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. Using an Authorized Agent: If you use an authorized agent to submit a consumer request, the authorized agent must provide documentation or other proof indicating that they are authorized to act on your behalf. For requests to correct, access or delete, we may require you to verify your identity directly with us (for example, by emailing us directly from your email address associated with your application), and directly confirm with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.  If you are an authorized agent, you may make a request by emailing privacyrequests@Conductor.com and providing documentation or other proof indicating that you are authorized by the consumer to act on their behalf. The agent must provide documentation necessary (as determined in Conductor's discretion) to verify the agent has authority to act on the consumer's behalf in relation to CCPA requests. Limitations on CCPA Requests: You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
Response Timing and Format: We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing (email suffices). Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data access requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, for example, through an Excel file format. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
