Information We Collect
How We Use Your Information
We use the personal information you supply in order to create your user account and to communicate with you concerning open positions for which you may be qualified as well as about company-sponsored events and company promotions. For example, we use your e-mail address in order to notify you of upcoming events we are sponsoring for health care professionals, such as complementary cooking class demonstrations, as well as to notify you of open assignments at health care facilities where we supply supplemental health care staff and bonuses associated with completion of such assignments.
We may send certain messages, including electronic newsletters, notification of account statuses and marketing communications, on a periodic basis. If you wish to be removed from such messages, you may request to discontinue future ones by opting out.
After you apply for an open contract or per diem assignment, we share PII collected as part of the credentialing process with a third-party provider of background checks. We also share PII collected during the employment application process with supervisory staff at health care facilities who are responsible for making and/or providing input with respect to, hiring decisions concerning supplemental staff. In addition, we use a Vendor Management System (VMS) administered by our affiliate, Davin Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (“Davin”) to maintain caregiver profiles and submit such profiles to health care facilities. As such, we share PII collected as part of the credentialing process with Davin. For those facilities where we provide supplemental health care staff through a VMS administered by another health care staffing organization, we share PII collected as part of the credentialing process with the employees of such VMS provider who are responsible for credentialing and submitting caregiver profiles to health care facilities. If you accept an assignment with one of our health care facility clients, authorized personnel within the facility will have access to your credentials.
We may also disclose PII to accountants, our insurance carriers and to federal and/or New York State regulatory agencies where such information is needed for tax or audit reasons, for underwriting purposes, or to fulfill a regulatory requirement. For example, if you are injured on the job and file a workers’ compensation claim, we will share PII with our workers’ compensation insurance carrier.
Measures To Protect Your Information
In coordination with our hosting partner, we employ the following data security tools in order to protect your PII: use of 256-bit encryption security certificate to transmit your personal information between your browser and the server that hosts our staffing and credentialing system; use of encrypted e-mail to communicate with you whenever possible where PII is transmitted; use of secure authentication protocol to limit unauthorized access to our system; vulnerability scans of our staffing and credentialing system; disablement of unused ports on our server; physical controls, including automatically locking doors and 24/7 surveillance of the facility where our server is located; and suspension of user credentials after 5 unsuccessful login attempts to our system. Ultimately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of your PII.
No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, we disclaim any liability if a third-party illegalLY obtains your personal information.
