Last Updated: December 29, 2022

Flexe, Inc. (“Flexe”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) is committed to respecting the privacy of individuals, including its candidates for employment.

This Recruiting Privacy Notice (this “Notice”) describes how Flexe collects, uses, and discloses personal information about job applicants in connection with the recruitment process and when considering such applicants for employment opportunities. For purposes of this Notice, “personal information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular job applicant or household. Personal information does not include information that does not and cannot reveal an individual’s specific identity, such as information that has been de-identified or aggregated.

We may update this Notice at any time. We may also provide you additional privacy notices regarding our collection, use or disclosure of information.

This Notice does not form part of any employment contract or contract to provide services. If you provide information to us through or in connection with another company, we are not responsible for that company’s privacy practices.
