Please review this Policy from time to time.
The following topics are covered below:
We collect information about you when you interact with us, including when you visit and use the Sites. We also collect information about you from your employer or its service providers. Alight also automatically collects information about the devices you use to interact with the Sites.
Over the past 12 months, we may have collected information from or about you including, but not limited to, the following information:
Where we collect and process sensitive information (as described above), and where applicable, we rely on one of the exceptions listed in Art.9(2) of the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") to permit that processing, including the affected person's consent.
Your Choice to Provide Information: You may choose not to provide personal information to Alight by refraining from, among other things, using the Sites. You also may refrain from submitting information directly to us. However, if you do not provide personal information when requested, we may not be able to provide you with the full range of our products and services, or with information about our products and services, promotions, and other opportunities.
We may use the personal information we collect for the following purposes:
We may send text messages to mobile devices of customers who have consented to these messages via an opt-in request. We may also send emails unless you have opted-out. These messages may also include marketing related messages about additional services we think may be useful to you. The opportunity to opt-out of a specific campaign is made available with the messages we send. You can opt-out of these text and email message at any time by following the instructions in the message or by contacting us using the information below.
With your consent, we may also use your personal information for additional purposes. For example, with your consent we may use your Google Fit service or Apple HealthKit service (“Fitness Service”) to collect your fitness activity data through our mobile app. When you agree to this integration, in the background, our mobile app will collect and analyze your fitness activity data from the Fitness Service to track your progress in our health program challenges. We do not use data collected through Fitness Service for marketing or advertising purposes. Our mobile app cannot read from or write to your Fitness Service without your consent. You can disable our access to any type of fitness activity data at any time in Fitness Service settings on your device. The use and transfer of information received from Google APIs will adhere to Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements.
We will not use your information for automated individual decision-making, including profiling, as contemplated under Article 22 of the GDPR.
Legal Basis for Processing your Personal Data: Your information will be processed by our workforce personnel when they have been instructed to do so in accordance with Alight's policies or as requested by your employer. We will process personal information only when we have a legal basis to do so. The legal basis we rely on will be one of the following:
In order to process any special category of personal information under the GDPR, we rely on the consents that we or your employer obtain from you in order to provide you with the services or any other applicable basis for processing that applies to your employer.
If we intend to use personal information for a purpose other than the purpose for which we collected the data, we will provide you with information about this secondary purpose, the legal basis for processing and, where required, obtain your consent, before we engage in further processing.
We do not sell any personal information to third parties and have not done so for the past 12 months.
In the past 12 months, your information may have been disclosed for a variety of business purposes:
We do not sell any personal information to third parties and have not done so for the past 12 months.
Alight has implemented physical, technical and administrative security safeguards, designed to protect personal information from loss, misuse, alteration, exfiltration, or destruction; taking into account the sensitivity of the information and the purpose for which it was collected. However, no method of data storage or transmission is 100% secure.
Unless provided otherwise in this Policy, we will retain your information for as long as your account is active or for as long as necessary for the relevant purposes of processing. We may also retain and use your information for longer periods in case it is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and/or enforce our agreements. To the extent possible, Alight will de-identify, or take reasonable steps to delete from its records, information no longer required for the purposes identified in this Policy, other than information which we are required by law to retain.

Links to Other Websites: The Sites may contain links to other sites that are outside of our control and are not covered by this Policy. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of those sites may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their own privacy policies. We encourage you to read the privacy policies on other websites you visit. Alight is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of linked sites or any use of those sites.

Please read this Policy from time to time as we may modify the Policy at any time in our sole discretion.
