Hello there!

Socure is committed to protecting personal privacy, which includes the security of Personal Information that we hold and use. This Candidate and Employee Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”) covers the collection and use of Personal Information we collect and process of our job recruits and job applicants (our “candidates”), as well as our employees. If you have questions, or wish to exercise your legal privacy rights, please use our Data Rights form or email us at  As it pertains to requests to correct and/or delete your Personal Information, Socure shall make good faith efforts to correct and/or delete such Personal Information and shall instruct applicable third parties with whom it has disclosed such Personal Information, unless such correction and/or deletion is not feasible, is unduly burdensome, and/or violates applicable law.

This Privacy Notice is not a contract and does not create any legal rights or obligations. This Privacy Notice also is not intended to replace other notices or disclosures we may provide to you in connection with your application for a job or your role in our organization, which will supersede any conflicting disclosures contained in this Privacy Notice.
