At Workforce Cloud Tech, Inc (Recruit CRM), we care deeply about maintaining the trust of our customers, as well as being as transparent as possible about government and third-party requests for customer data. As such, we are publishing our first report about requests for data by law enforcement and governmental entities.
This first report covers all such requests from January 1, 2019 - June 30, 2021. We plan to publish updates to the report annually.
In addition to our commitment to trust and transparency, we also believe in the importance of fundamental privacy, protection of user data, constitutional guardrails and judicial oversight of government data collection and surveillance.
We abide by the following guiding principles:
- We are committed to maintaining customer privacy and confidentiality.
- All legal process is carefully reviewed. Workforce Cloud Tech, Inc (Recruit CRM) rejects or challenges any requests that have no legal basis or are unclear, overbroad or otherwise inappropriate.
- Workforce Cloud Tech, Inc (Recruit CRM) construes the legal process as narrowly as possible.
- Wherever possible, we encourage customers and third parties to obtain relevant data without our intervention.
