This Policy applies to Personal Information collected in connection with your use of the Sites or when you interact with us in other communication channels such as via phone or email. 

Personal Information means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual.

This Policy applies to our internal colleagues, clients, client employees, prospective clients, job applicants, contingent workers, vendor or partner employees, and Site visitors.  

Please note that the applicability of certain details of this Policy may vary depending on your relationship with us, where you reside, and, if applicable, the services Alight provides to you, your employer or plan sponsor or that are otherwise made available to you on your behalf or at the request of your employer or plan sponsor.

Data protection laws in different jurisdictions distinguish between “controllers” and “processors” of Personal Information. While other jurisdictions and laws use similar terminology, the concept remains the same. Alight may be a controller (meaning, the entity deciding over how Personal Information is being processed) or a processor (meaning, the entity that processes Personal Information on behalf of the controller), depending on the nature of the relationship with clients and/or individuals. 

Depending on the Sites you visit, or the services Alight provides to you, we may collect information from or about you listed in the below categories including, but not limited to, the following:
