Avesta Systems, Inc. ("Avesta") provides Software as a Service (SaaS) products, including “CandidateCare” (“candidatecare.jobs”), an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Through CandidateCare, you, the “Applicant” (or “End User”), may be required to submit information for the purpose of applying for Employment, Volunteering, Training, or other Activity or Institution. Any information submitted may be used by the Client to evaluate your Application, but may also be used in aggregate to help Avesta improve its services. Information provided is available ONLY to the Client for which the Applicant is applying. We take security seriously. Your information is transmitted over a secure connection to be stored on our secure servers in a secure facility. It is Avesta’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect during the use of our websites.
Gathering and Use of Non-Personally-Identifiable Information
Avesta collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request for the purpose of understanding how visitors use our sites. This enables us to craft a better system for our Clients and their Applicants. From time to time, Avesta may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate.

Protection of Personally-Identifying Information (PII)
Any information disclosed in the course of completing an application or other decision-related document for a Client is available to:
- Any Client Administrator with permissions and authorized access, as directed by the Client.
- Avesta Employees with access to the system or database.
- To other Software platforms (such as HRIS, Payroll, or Background Screening Providers [CRAs]) over secured web connection (‘Integration’). Information is only sent to those platforms which are able to receive and store PII securely. Avestato which the Client has authorized and requested Avesta send such information on the Client’s behalf. Such information would otherwise be entered manually on said systems by the client.
- Otherwise, only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request.
- Avesta does not share PII with any other parties.
All Avesta employees with access to PII have cleared background screening and have been trained in the handling of PII.
Avesta takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Due to varied reporting requirements of indeterminate duration, Avesta will not destroy PII.

In addition to the above protections, SPI information is stored in an encrypted format using modern encryption policies.
