By voluntarily disclosing your personal information on our web site or to an employee, you will be deemed to have granted your consent to the mutually beneficial uses reasonably contemplated at the time of your consent, including ordinary data processing activities by any third parties on our behalf, to the extent such consent is legally sufficient in your country of residence.

Elevate uses your personal information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your personal information to update you on the benefits and features of working with or for Elevate and to provide you with information and material requested by you. We may collect personal information when Users communicate with User support services. ​By using these Service, you are authorizing us to gather, parse, and retain data related to the provision of the Service.

We will never: (a) rent or sell any personal information to third parties, (b) share personal information with third parties for the purpose of targeted advertising, (c) use personal information for marketing purposes, or (d) claim ownership of your personal information. 

If you fail to provide certain personal information when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract or provide the services that we have entered into with you (such as paying you or providing a benefit), or we may be prevented from complying with our legal obligations.

We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. NOTE – Elevate may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent where this is required or permitted by law.

Elevate may have to share your personal information with third parties, including third-party service providers and other entities. We will take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that the third parties respect the security of your personal information, treat it in accordance with all applicable laws, and use it only for the specific purpose that it was provided.

It is not the objective or intent of Elevate to seek any sensitive personal information through our web site. Sensitive personal information may include several types of data relating to; race or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious or other similar beliefs; trade union membership; physical or mental health; sexual life or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive personal information of this nature, unless as part of an employment application or your employment. If you elect to provide sensitive personal information not requested by Elevate, you expressly provide consent to Elevate for the use of that personal information consistent with the mutually beneficial uses reasonably contemplated at the time of your consent or as more specifically described at the point where you choose to disclose your personal information.

Elevate does not assume responsibility for verifying the personal information you submit, or for establishing the ongoing accuracy of the content of the personal information. If Elevate is informed that any personal information collected through a web site is no longer accurate, we will make appropriate corrections based on the updated information provided by the authenticated visitor.

Despite our commitment to protecting your personal information, there may be circumstances under which we may be deemed to be legally compelled to access, preserve, or disclose your personal information. These circumstances may include, among others: (a) Situations where disclosure is required by law, or necessary to comply with an order of a court or governmental agency, or necessary for matters of safety and security, (b) In response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, and (c) In such cases, Elevate will make good faith efforts to provide only that personal information which is the subject of the official order or request.

Cookies and Internet Tags:

 We may collect and process information, such as anonymous usage statistics, by using “cookies,” server logs, and other similar technology as you use the Service in order to help us improve the Services and to compile aggregate statistics about the use of Services for internal purposes. Cookies enable you to sign in to the Service and access your stored preferences and settings. If you choose to block this function, it may impair required functionality and therefore your use of the Services. 

Data Retention:

Elevate will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes that we collected it for. This also includes satisfying any applicable legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you. Additionally, once you are no longer an employee or worker of Elevate, we will retain and/or securely destroy your personal information in accordance with our data retention policy and/or applicable laws and regulations.

If you want to review, verify, correct, or request erasure of your personal information or object to the processing of your personal information please contact us at [email protected]​.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights defined within this Policy). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is an appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person or entity that has no right to receive it.

Website Third Party Links: 

There are several places throughout the web site that may link to other web sites that do not operate under our privacy practices. Elevate does not endorse or make any representations about them, or any information, software or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. When you link to other web sites, the Elevate Privacy Policies no longer apply, and we assume no responsibility for the information or other practices of a site that is accessible through ours. We encourage you to review each sites privacy policy before disclosing any personal information.
