4.4. THE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS PURSUED BY YOUR EMPLOYER

MyPeopleDoc® is provided to you by choice of your Employer, as a benefit. It is your option to register to create your MyPeopleDoc® account or not. Once created, the MyPeopleDoc® account allows you to receive HR Documents directly from your Employer. If you choose not to create a MyPeopleDoc® account, you will not be able to receive HR Documents electronically. 

The legitimate interest of your Employer is clearly articulated, and it is also pursued by PeopleDoc. Your Employer has an interest in providing MyPeopleDoc® to you in order to: comply with legal requirements; increase the transition from paper to digital and enhance HR procedures. PeopleDoc pursues these same legitimate interests on behalf of your Employer when processing your Files, to assure the conformity and quality of the services delivered.

When balancing these interests with your rights and freedom, such rights will not be overridden, since the processing of your Personal Information is limited to the purposes described in this Terms of Use and all your rights (such as erasure and access) are guaranteed at all times.

The functionality of receiving HR Documents from an Employer ends whenever any of the following events occurs:

  • The relationship binding you to your Employer ends; or 
  • Your Employer ceases to send you HR Documents, for any reason whatsoever; or
  • Your MyPeopleDoc® account is deleted, either by you or by PeopleDoc.

SPECIAL CONDITIONS APPLICABLE BY JURISDICTION

 

FRANCE

SPECIFIC CONDITIONS FOR THE DELIVERY OF PAY SLIPS IN FRANCE

  1. YOUR RIGHTS CONCERNING PAYSLIPS

Your Employer will choose between the two options below as ways of obtaining your agreement for the set-up of the service of electronic distribution of your pay slips (‘distribution’), as follows: (i) your Employer decides to obtain your consent prior to setting up the Service (‘Opt-in’); or (ii) your Employer decides to give You the opportunity to refuse distribution (‘Opt-out’).

      • With prior consent (‘Opt-in’)

If your Employer has chosen to collect your consent before setting up the distribution, you agree that your payslips will be delivered electronically by accepting these Terms of Use. 

If you decide to revoke your consent thereafter, you may do so at any time by configuring your settings in your MyPeopleDoc® account. Your Employer shall comply with your request (i.e., resumption of the delivery of hard-copy payslips) as quickly as possible, and no later than three (3) months following reception of your request. 

      • Digital payslip by default (Opt-out)

If your Employer has chosen to set up the electronic distribution of payslips by default you will have one (1) month from the date you received the notice from your Employer to refuse the distribution before your first payslip is delivered electronically. You can inform your Employer that you refuse the distribution, either via MyPeopleDoc® or through any other method that can be duly dated (addressing yourself to your Employer directly).

Following this (1) month retraction period and once the distribution is set up, two situations are also possible:

  • In the absence of prior objection on your part, your payslips will be distributed electronically in your MyPeopleDoc® account.
  • In the event of prior objection on your part, the activation of your MyPeopleDoc® account entails acceptance of the distribution.

In both of the above situations, you have the option of revoking your consent at any time via MyPeopleDoc® or any other method that can be duly dated (addressing yourself to your Employer directly). Your Employer shall comply with your request (i.e., resumption of the delivery of hard-copy payslips) as quickly as possible, and no later than three (3) months following reception of your request. 

Your employer may decide that the option to return to paper payslips, as described above, will not be available in your MyPeopleDoc® account settings. In this case, you must submit your request directly to your Employer.

 

2. PAYSLIP RETENTION PERIOD

Payslips will be stored in MyPeopleDoc® for at least fifty (50) years from the date they are first stored, even if you subsequently decide to go back to receiving hard-copy payslips. During this pay slip retention period, you will be free to view, print, download and/or share your payslips.   

The provisions of this article will continue to be valid after the expiry of these Terms of Use.

 

3. IF PEOPLEDOC CEASES TRADING

In the event that the Services are discontinued because PeopleDoc ceases trading, you will be notified at least three (3) months prior to the definitive cessation of service. During this period, you will be able to retrieve/download all your stored payslips without needing to perform complex or repetitive actions, and in a structured electronic format that is commonly used. 

 

GERMANY

  1. LIABILITY

The following sentence of item 11 above:

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, PeopleDoc shall not be held liable for any indirect harm, such as loss of revenue or interest, which you might suffer. PeopleDoc is not liable for any malfunctions or problems in accessing your MyPeopleDoc® account following events of force majeure, as defined by applicable laws and jurisprudence.

Is exchanged by:

  • Slight Negligence 

In case of slight negligence PeopleDoc shall only be liable if and to the extent a violation of an obligation is essential for the execution of this Terms of Use, i.e. where the obligation itself is a necessary prerequisite for the service performance, or where the violation of the relevant obligation jeopardizes the purpose of this Terms of Use and where you could legitimately rely upon its fulfillment. PeopleDocs liability shall be limited to damages which have been foreseeable and which can typically arise in connection with this Terms of Use.

  • Indirect Damages

Subject to Section 3, PeopleDoc shall only be liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential, or special loss

or damages, including but not limited to loss of profits, interruption of Service, loss of business, business opportunity or anticipated savings, or harm to reputation, however caused, which have been foreseeable and which can typically arise in connection with this Terms of Use. The same applies for PeopleDoc’s liability for the procurement of substitute services.

  • Exceptions

Nothing in this Terms of Use limits or excludes PeopleDocs liability (a) for death, bodily injury or injury of health arising out of its negligence or that of its vicarious agents, (b) for losses suffered as a result of gross negligence or willful misconduct, or (c) for losses that cannot be limited or excluded by law, in particular the liability under the German Product Liability Act (Produkthaftungsgesetz).
