We make your online security our priority.
Payworks respects and understands your concerns about privacy. Our goal is to provide you with the personal and financial information required to generate payroll and related transactions for your company. We hope that you will find the website useful and we provide you with this notice of our policy with respect to the information we may collect from you while you are using this site. Additionally, certain aspects of use of this site or information collected through this site may be covered by our contracts, if any, with customers.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
Collection of personal information online is designed to protect access to your personal accounts and to assist in providing you with the products and services you want and need. All personal information collected and stored by Payworks is used for specific business purposes - to protect and administer your personal accounts and transactions, to comply with provincial and federal payroll regulations, and to help better understand your payroll needs in order to design or improve our products and services.
Employing stringent security measures in the collection of your personal information, all Payworks online account applications are submitted to Payworks' secure administration site through an encrypted direct line to the secure database. Once received by Payworks, only approved personnel may open and process the application. Furthermore, auditing mechanisms have been put into place to further protect your information by identifying which employees have accessed and in any way modified-for example, updated or added to-your personal information.
Maintenance of Accurate Information
It is in the best interest for you to maintain accurate records concerning your personal information. For this reason, Payworks allows you to update your personal information online, at anytime.
Personally Identifiable Information
From time to time, we may request information that personally identifies you such as your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, or other information that can be used to identify you. Payworks is very aware of the sensitive nature of such information and sets the highest standards for confidentiality. We are committed to protecting the privacy of both our corporate clients and the individuals for whom payroll transactions are prepared.
Payworks respects your right to privacy and takes every precaution to provide you with the same level of privacy within our website that you receive through more traditional payroll delivery channels.
