In addition, this Policy does not govern our Customers’ use or disclosure of Employee information; each Customer is required to post a privacy policy that provides notice to, and if required obtains consent from, their employees to the collection, use and disclosure of information by that Customer, as well as by Beyond Attendance via the Services. We encourage employees to review the privacy policy of any website they visit, or any organization with which they engage online.
