Protection of Personal Information
Protecting your information from unauthorized disclosure, use, or loss is of the utmost importance. No system for safeguarding personal or other information is 100% secure and even though we have taken steps to protect your personally information from being intercepted, accessed, used or disclosed by unauthorized persons, we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with personal information. However, we employ technical, physical, and administrative controls to safeguard our information systems that contain employee information. We put in place controls and contractual obligations on third parties that have access to employee information to the extent feasible.
Applicants, employees, and contractors are expected to take measures to protect their personal information in their possession and control in accordance with our Information Security Policy https://ritus.com/privacy-policy/.
