These programs and functions include, but are not limited to: job applications and hiring programs, compensation and benefit programs, performance appraisals, training, access to United facilities and computer networks, employee profiles, internal intranet employee directories, Human Resource recordkeeping, Affirmative Action data, and other employment related purposes. It is the policy of United to keep all past and present employee information private from disclosure to third parties. There are certain business related exceptions and they are:

  • To comply with local, county, state or federal agency requests;

  • Inquiries from third parties with a signed authorization from the employee to release the information, except in situations where limited verbal verifications are acceptable (see below);

  • Third parties with which United has contractual agreements to assist in administration of company sponsored benefits.

 

Verifications of Employment

Except as described in this Privacy Policy, United will not share Personal Information with a third party, unless a customer requests, consents to such disclosure, or disclosure is required or authorized by law. United reserves the right to disclose Personal Information to a third party if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so. United also reserves the right to disclose and/or transfer Personal Information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale, lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, or financing of all or any portion of United or of any of the business or assets or shares of United or a division thereof in order for a franchisee or Development Agent to continue to receive the same products and services from the third party.
