Disclosure to Third Parties
VideoAmp does not sell or otherwise disclose your personal information to any third parties for any monetary consideration. VideoAmp intends on only sharing your personal information with service providers in order to administer employee benefits, including for payment of wages, tax processing, and health insurance, in connection with its human resource activities (including job performance and employee satisfaction feedback, and building and office access), business operations, and network security purposes. These service providers may include, but are not limited to, employee benefit providers, payroll, wellness apps, and third-party providers for operations such as software licenses, communication tools, video conferencing access, and key cards for access to the facilities and certain company equipment, and other security. Information on your employment status may also be provided to third-party servicers, such as in response to reference checks and other inquiries. Additionally, your personal information may be stored and used through other services such as, for example, cloud data storage services. Any and all of these third-party service providers, and especially software providers, platforms, and apps, may change frequently as technology develops and as we find other providers. It is important to note that third party service providers have their own privacy policies regarding the collection and use of personal information, and data collected by them will be subject to such service provider’s policy and are not covered by this Privacy Notice. We urge you to review relevant third party privacy policies. If you would like to know more information about our service providers, please reach out to legal@videoamp.com.

Regarding disclosure, when VideoAmp discloses your personal information to third party service providers it is for business and employment-related purposes, and when we do so we ask them to agree to keep the information confidential and to not use it for any purpose except as permitted in their agreement with VideoAmp. Your continued employment with VideoAmp is implied consent to our using and disclosing that personal information in this manner. Third party vendors who obtain information from and/or about you might provide the information to VideoAmp, and you similarly impliedly consent to this disclosure and to our use of that information.

Changes to This Privacy Notice
VideoAmp reserves the right to update this Privacy Notice at any time, and will provide you with a new Privacy Notice when and if any updates are made. If VideoAmp intends to use your previously collected personal data for different purposes than those it notified you about at the time of collection, it will endeavor to provide you with notice and, where required by law, seek your consent, before using your personal data for a new or unrelated purpose. In our increasingly technological society, privacy laws are rapidly evolving.
