Privacy Policy


Last updated: February 26, 2022

Introduction (“Peoplist”, “we”, “us”, “our”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it in accordance with applicable laws and using generally-accepted industry practices.

This Privacy Policy explains who we are, how we collect, share, and use personal information about you, and how you can exercise your privacy rights. If you have any questions or concerns about Peoplist’s collection and use of your Personal Information, please contact us using the contact details provided below. If however, your questions or concerns are related to a Peoplist customer’s collection and use of your Personal Information, please contact that customer directly.


In order for you to easily find the sections that interest you, we have divided this privacy notice into a number of headings.


Scope of this policy


Peoplist is a provider of cloud-based software services that help companies manage and optimize their recruiting and hiring processes.


Our websites, products and services are designed for businesses and their representatives. We do not offer products or services for use by individuals for their personal, family or household purposes. Accordingly, we treat all Personal Information we collect as pertaining to individuals in their capacities as business representatives and not as individual consumers.


Our customers are the controllers of the Personal Information they collect through Peoplist’s Services to manage their own human resources processes (e.g., names, contact information, and other data collected as part of job applications), and each customer manages that Personal Information in accordance with its own privacy policies. Peoplist’s privacy commitments to our customers are governed by a separate customer agreement that authorizes us to collect, process, and store Personal Information on their behalf, as a processor under the EU GDPR, the UK GDPR and the Turkey KVKK, and a service provider under the CCPA. Peoplist processes Personal Information relating to our customers’ employees and job applicants within our Services only according to our customers’ instructions (as defined in our customer agreements), and we have no direct relationship with the individuals whose Personal Information we process in connection with our customers’ use of our Services. For example, if you apply to a job posted on a career page of a Peoplist customer, your Personal Information will be automatically processed by Peoplist on behalf of that customer. However, the company you applied to is the data controller (or business, as that term is defined in the CCPA) with respect to your Personal Information, and you should contact that entity directly with any questions you may have regarding its privacy policies or data processing practices, or if you wish to modify or access your Personal Information, restrict its processing, or delete it from our Services. Peoplist’s customer contracts require us to redirect any inquiries relating to the Personal Information we process on behalf of a customer back to that customer without taking any action on the request.

However, Peoplist is the controller of Personal Information that we collect directly from visitors to our marketing website, (the “Website”); from our own job applicants; and from our customers and vendors to help us manage our business relationships with them. This Privacy Policy describes the type of Personal Information that Peoplist collects; Peoplist’s policies around the use, disclosure, and retention of that Personal Information; and the choices available to you regarding your rights in relation to your Personal Information generally.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third-party applications or software that can be accessed through our Website or that our customers independently elect to integrate with our Services (“Third-Party Services”). Third-Party Services are governed by the terms and privacy policies applicable to your relationship with the third party, and Peoplist accepts no responsibility or liability with respect to Third-Party Services.

How do we protect your personal data?


We take appropriate measures to ensure that your personal data is kept secure in accordance with industry best practices and applicable laws to protect data we collect from loss, alteration, destruction, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure.

For how long do we process your personal data?


We retain Personal Information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).


When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
