Purpose of This Policy
- This Policy applies to all PLI employees and facilities wherever located; references herein to BIPA are specific to the Company’s employees located in the State of Illinois and do not apply elsewhere. If you have any questions concerning the applicability of this Policy, please contact the Company’s Human Resources Department.
- PLI and/or its vendors, such as staffing agencies and payroll services, or a licensor of the Company’s time and attendance software, may use biometric identification systems for employee timekeeping, fraud prevention, and/or for security purposes at some facilities. Staffing agencies and payroll services may have separate biometric privacy policies which an employee may be required to acknowledge and consent to.
Definition of Biometric Data
As used in this Policy, Biometric Data includes “biometric identifiers” and “biometric information” which are defined as follows:
“Biometric identifier” means a retina or iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, or scan of hand or face geometry. Biometric identifiers do not include writing samples, written signatures, photographs, human biological samples used for valid scientific testing or screening, demographic data, tattoo descriptions, or physical descriptions such as height, weight, hair color, or eye color.
“Biometric information” means any information, regardless of how it is captured, converted, stored, or shared, based on an individual’s biometric identifier used to identify an individual. Biometric information does not include information derived from items or procedures excluded under the definition of biometric identifiers.
The Company’s Policy
- PLI’s policy is to protect and store Biometric Data in accordance with applicable standards and laws wherever the Company’s employees and facilities are situated.
- An individual’s Biometric Data will not be collected or otherwise obtained by PLI without the written consent of the individual. PLI will inform the employee of the reason his or her Biometric Data is being collected and the length of time the data will be stored. A Consent to Collection of Biometric Data and Release Form is included in this Policy.
- PLI maintains control over the information and does not and will not sell, lease, trade or otherwise profit from an individual’s Biometric Data. Biometric Data will not be released by PLI unless (i) an employee’s written consent is obtained, (ii) disclosure is required by law, or (iii) required by valid legal subpoena.
- Biometric Data will be stored, used and protected using a reasonable standard of care for PLI’s industry and in a manner that is the same or exceeds the standards used to protect other confidential and sensitive information held by PLI. No PLI employee will have direct access to Biometric Data.
- PLI will permanently destroy Biometric Data within a reasonable period of time of when the purpose for obtaining or collecting such data has been fulfilled. Generally, this means within one (1) month of an employee’s termination of employment but in no event will it be longer than three (3) years.
- Prior to collecting an individual’s Biometric Data, PLI will obtain the written consent of the individual. Consents will be stored by PLI’s Human Resources Department in employee personnel records.
- This Policy replaces and supersedes all previous PLI policies related to biometric information. PLI reserves the right to amend this policy at any time without notice.
- PLI may expand its use of Biometric Data in the future. In the event PLI begins collecting Biometric Data for any additional purpose, PLI will update this Policy.
