NUANCE utilizes the self-assessment approach to assure its compliance with this Policy. NUANCE periodically verifies that the Policy is accurate, comprehensive for the information intended to be covered, prominently displayed, completely implemented, and in conformity with the law.
All employees, contractors and third party vendors who have access to Employment/Employee Data must comply with this Policy. In some countries, violations of data protection regulations may lead to penalties and/or claims for damages from the individuals who are adversely affected.
Failure to observe this Policy or deliberate breach of confidentiality or security in relation to Employment/Employee Data may result in disciplinary action against those individuals responsible. If at any time, an individual believes that personal data relating to him or her has been processed in violation of this Policy, he or she may report the concern to the local Human Resources manager or to the Director, International Human Resources in the USA. If the concern relates to an alleged violation of this Policy by an entity located in a country other than that of the individual or the NUANCE entity exporting the Employment/Employee Data in question, he or she may request the assistance of that NUANCE exporting entity. That NUANCE entity will assist him or her in investigating the circumstances of the alleged violation and if necessary take that matter up with the entity importing that data. If the violation is confirmed, the exporting and importing entities will work together with any other relevant parties (including co-operating with competent national data protection authorities) to resolve the matter in a satisfactory manner, consistent with the provisions of this Policy.
