Privacy Policy


Effective Date: July 1, 2022

Welcome to Accredible!
Regardless of whether you’re a current Accredible team member, or you’re applying to be part of our team, it’s important to us that you’re aware of personal information ("PI”) we collect, how we use   that   information,   and   how   you’re   empowered   to   opt-out,   correct,   delete,   or   change   that information. 

This   Privacy   Notice   applies   to   all   applicants   and   prospective   employees   (collectively, “Applicants”)   and   current   and   former   employees,   officers,   directors,   contractors,   agents contingent  and  other  personnel   (collectively,  “
Workers”)  of   Accredible,   and  their  emergency contacts   and   beneficiaries,   whose   PI   is   collected   and   processed   by   us   in   the   course   of   our business. The terms “Accredible,” “we,” “us,” and “our” in this policy apply to all companies in the Accredible family of companies, which includes EdInvent, Inc. dba Accredible, its affiliates, and subsidiaries. The terms “you,” and “your” in this policy apply to Applicants and Workers, as applicable. 


We are committed to complying with all data privacy laws in the jurisdictions in which we collect PI of Applicants and Workers. This notice is a general guide to how we treat the PI of Applicants and Workers and their emergency contacts and beneficiaries. You should be aware that data privacy laws can vary in different jurisdictions where we operate and have employees. As we are an international   business with offices in the U.S., it is possible that your information will be shared, processed, and kept in a country different from where you live. To help keep your PI safe, we keep informed of local laws and take best efforts to follow those. Where local laws are stricter than the protections described in this notice, we work to apply specific privacy practices in those locations to comply with those stricter requirements. Where local laws are less strict than these policies, the protections described in this notice will apply. No matter the jurisdiction, we will never sell your PI.


We are committed to achieving meaningful accessibility to this notice for all 
Applicants, Workers, emergency   contacts   and   beneficiaries,   including   those   with   disabilities.   We   do  this   based   on accessibility   guidelines   developed   by   the   World   Wide   Web   Consortium   (W3C). This   notice   is available in Portable Document Format (PDF), and we try and ensure it is produced using the latest   version   of   Acrobat   (file   conversion   software   for   PDFs),   which   is   the   most   accessible technology currently available for this type of document. To improve viewing of the PDF version, please download the latest free version of

Since we recognize that even this version does not work for everyone, if you are prevented from accessing this notice, please contact us for assistance and we will do our best to provide an alternative   accessible   format. Applicants,   Workers
,   and   their   emergency   contacts   and beneficiaries   with   disabilities,   may   make   an alternative   format request   by   contacting

  • Device Information. Like most companies, when you use company issued devices or access/login to company  sites, accounts or messaging channels from a personal device, 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, browsing history, search history, information regarding your   interaction   with   a   website,  and   other   information   about   activities   you   engage   in while working with us. 
  • System Monitoring. To ensure that our hardware and software is working optimally, the company   devices   issued   to   you,   and   Accredible’s  accounts,   information   technology systems and networks you use, may be monitored and reviewed by us to ensure they’re used  appropriately   and   to   determine   what   IT   upgrades   may   be   necessary.   Should   it become necessary, Accredible can also access and review electronic files, messages, and emails   sent   or   stored   on   its   information   technology   systems  and   hardware.  To   the maximum extent permitted by law,    you have no expectation of privacy while at Accredible   premises  or using  Accredible  information  technology systems,  networks,  and  electronic communication tools.  To underscore this point, Workers should know that they may not have access to every file, network, and programs – this is because we need to maintain confidentiality and protect our team members.

We  use and disclose your PI primarily for the purpose of managing our relationship with you, along with other purposes to operate our business. These uses include:
  • determining employment eligibility and if you are a good fit for our team (e.g., verification of   references   and   qualifications,   administering   background   checks   where   permitted   bylaw);
  • administering   payroll   and   benefits   as   well   as   processing   employee   work-related   claims(e.g., worker compensation, insurance claims) and leave of absence requests;
  • keeping   you   safe,   establishing   emergency   contacts,   and   providing   efficient   resources(e.g., responding to emergencies and providing HR support);
  • preventing wrongdoing and unauthorized access to our IT, communications systems and network (e.g., IT security, IT administration, record activity, system monitoring and access logs); 
  • responding   to   HR-related   questions   and   supporting   our   HR   operations   generally   (e.g.,administration,  communication, running diversity  and  inclusion initiatives, worker safety, absence management, helpdesk, IT support services); 
  • establishing   employee   training,   reviewing   work   performance   and   determining performance requirements and disciplinary actions or termination;
  • complying  with  the laws and regulations  (e.g.,  labor and employment laws, health and safety,   tax,   anti-discrimination   laws,  fraud   prevention),  disclosing  to   affiliated organizations for administrative tasks, Worker monitoring for safety or management, for the  establishment,  exercise,  or defense of  legal claims,   and  performing  internal  and/or external or governmental compliance investigations or audits; and
  • other   legitimate   purposes   reasonably   required   for   day-to-day   operations,   such   as accounting,   financial   reporting,   business   planning,   employee   management,   compiling internal directories, such as employee directories and research purposes.

We take care to ensure your PI is only disclosed to those who really need it in order to perform their tasks and duties, and to third parties who have a legitimate purpose for accessing it.

To run our business, we may share your information with other Workers, Accredible affiliates and subsidiaries,   contractors,   consultants   and   service   providers   who   require   the   PI   to   help   us establish, manage or terminate your employment with Accredible, including parties that provide products or services to us or on our behalf, parties that collaborate with us to provide services to you, or to law enforcement if we’re served with a court order, a subpoena, receive a valid legal request, or we reasonably believe it is necessary to protect the rights or safety of you or the team.   For   example,   we   may   engage   third   parties   such   as   employee   benefit   plan   providers, payroll support services and employee travel management services. In some cases, these parties may   also   provide   certain   IT   and   data   processing   services   to   us   so   that   we   can   operate   our business. When we share PI with these parties, we typically require that they i) use or disclose that PI only as instructed  by Accredible and in a manner consistent with this Privacy Notice, and/or ii) enter into contracts with us to ensure they respect the confidentiality of your PI and have appropriate data security measures in place. If you post content to Intra-Company Sites or our public-facing sites, other Workers or parties may have access to the information you post.While we expect all Workers to use professional judgment and treat other Workers fairly, we are not responsible for practices of the individuals who view and use such information.

Additionally, if we are involved in a merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another entity, your PI may be transferred as part of such an event. Any such acquirer or successor of Accredible may continue to use your PI as described in this notice, unless you consent otherwise.


In accordance with applicable law, you may have certain rights to your PI. In particular, the right to access, correct, or delete the personal data Accredible holds about you. 
  • Right to Access. This is the right to request confirmation of whether we are processing your PI and request access to or a copy of the information we hold about you. 
  • Right to Correct. This is the right to ask us to correct information we hold about you if it is inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete. It is important that the information contained in our records is both accurate and current. 
  • Right to Delete. This is the right to ask us to delete information we hold about you, subject to certain exceptions prescribed by law. You can also ask that we delete personal data that you believe is inaccurate or no longer relevant in this same way. 
In addition to being able to access, update, and delete your PI, you may also have other data protection rights. These rights may include: 
  • The right to object to our use of your PI; 
  • The right to restrict how we use your PI; 
  • The  right to withdraw consent  if we collected and processed your PI based on your consent. Note: Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we carried out prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal data carried out in reliance on other lawful grounds other than consent; and
  • The   right   to   request   a   copy   of   your   PI   an   electronic   format   or   ask   us   to   send   that information to another company (the ‘right of data portability’);
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please use the contact details provided in the“Contact Us” section below.   To protect your privacy, Accredible will take steps to verify your identity before fulfilling your request. In certain cases,  we may not be able to comply with a request, such as when providing access might infringe someone else’s privacy rights or impact our legal obligations. However, all requests will be processed and evaluated in accordance with applicable laws. If   you   are  a   Worker   or  Applicant  who   lives  in   the   European   Economic   Area, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, or Brazil, you may have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe our processing of your PI violates applicable law.


We use  appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect the security of your PI both online and offline including the implementation of access controls, implementation of firewalls, network intrusion detection and use of anti-virus software. We work hard to ensure that your information is kept secure and in accordance with this Privacy Notice. That said, no system is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your PI, we cannot guarantee unauthorized access or a data breach will never occur and are not liable for any such unauthorized disclosure.If that does happen, we’ll work with you and provide help consistent with the provisions of this Privacy Notice. If you have any questions about the security of your PI, please contact us using the contact details provided in the “Contact Us” section below.


We  will  retain  and  use  your  PI  as necessary  to  fulfil  the  purpose  for which  it  was collected, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, including to conduct audits, ensure we comply with applicable laws, carry out HR operations, etc. Once we’ve fulfilled these purposes, we endeavor to safely and securely destroy, and delete the data we’ve collected about you.
