EU - U.S. Privacy Shield Notice

This Notice provides a comprehensive overview of the reasons we collect information from you and why we collect that information. 

LanguageLine Solutions (“LanguageLine”) is a self-certified participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield program. You can access a list of participating organizations at the following web address: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.

LanguageLine is committed to the Principles listed in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and will subject itself to those principles when handling Personal Data from the European Economic Area.

Customers: When we form relationships with our customers, they may ask us to gather information from their employees before placing a call with an interpreter.  Customers ask us to collect that information for billing purposes.  Such information can include an ID number, a badge number, a work code, a billing code, or information about the employee’s position, work group, or department.  That information is stored in a Salesforce application and in LanguageLine’s corporate headquarters for billing purposes.  We do not sell this information to third parties. 

End-Users: End-Users do not need to provide Personal Data to LanguageLine’s interpreters as a pre-condition to using LanguageLine’s services.  During a call, End-Users may incidentally provide Personal Data to our interpreters so our interpreters can facilitate a dialogue between the End-User and the Customer’s representative.  LanguageLine does not record these calls and does not collect any Personal Data provided by End-Users.    

Employees: As a global company, LanguageLine tries to create efficiencies in business processes. Accordingly, LanguageLine collects HR data about its employees for employment-related activities such as:

- Staffing
- Organizational planning and development
- Workforce management
- Budget planning and administration
- Compensation, payroll, and benefit planning and administration
- Talent management, education, and certification
- Employee communications

To facilitate the above, LanguageLine collects the following information from its employees:

- Name

- Medical records
- Performance records

- Interview records

LanguageLine provides this information to its affiliates, its parent company (Teleperformance), and its parent company’s affiliates for HR and employment-related purposes. None of those entities sell that data to third parties. Despite transferring that information to those entities, LanguageLine accepts liability associated with transferring this information to them. LanguageLine remains responsible and liable under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework if those entities process information in a manner inconsistent with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework’s Principles unless LanguageLine proves that it is not responsible for nonconforming processing activities.

LanguageLine may provide this information pursuant to lawful requests by public authorities.

You have the right to access the information LanguageLine collects about you. If you would like access to that information, please contact us using the information below.

If you would like to correct any of the information LanguageLine has collected about you, please contact us using the information below.

If you would like LanguageLine to stop or limit its use of your Personal Data, please contact us using the information below.

For privacy concerns that cannot be resolved with LanguageLine directly, LanguageLine has chosen to cooperate with Data Protection Authorities (“DPAs”) in the European Economic Area and will comply with the advice and information provided by those DPAs.

LanguageLine has committed to cooperate with EU data protection authorities (DPAs) with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning human resources data transferred from the EU in the context of the employment relationship. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, please contact the EU DPAs for more information or to file a complaint. The services of EU DPAs are provided at no cost to you.

As discussed in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, some cases are eligible for binding arbitration and those resources will be made available to you in order to address residual complaints unresolved by other means.

LanguageLine is subject to the investigatory and enforcement power of the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Transportation, and the Department of Commerce.
