PineappleHR is very serious about the data privacy. PineappleHR collects information from our users at several different points on our website that we do not share, sell, rent, or trade personally identifiable information collected through this website with third parties for their sole promotional purposes. We take every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via this website, your information is protected both online and offline.
When we import sensitive information such as date of birth, home address and social security number, that information is encrypted using SSL. During this process, the user creates a username and password that establishes their account. Once the account is established, users must log on to update their profile, place orders or review account status – all of which are done on secure pages.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information offline. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific function – such as customer support – are granted access to personally identifiable information.
All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Furthermore, every time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our users’ information is protected. Finally, all our computers are password protected and physical files and the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment in a locked facility.

In order to use this website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration, employers may required to grant PineappleHR access to their payroll system, from which PineappleHR imports information such as name, email address, date of birth, home address, and social security number for the company’s employees. This information is required to search best price quotes on various insurance and employee benefits products and services. It is also used to enroll the company and employees in those products if they choose to enroll, and, if the employer chooses to enroll in a benefits program, to contact employees about enrollment process and information on benefits products.
If you use any of the services that PineappleHR offers through our partners, affiliates and others, you may be asked to supply identifying information about yourself and/or other family members to facilitate delivery of such services to you. In all instances, the information is only used for the purpose for which it was supplied and is not otherwise used or disclosed. PineappleHR offers several services on our site where we will, by necessity, need to provide some of your information to the third party offering the services. We supply this information only as necessary to provide these services but we make no representation or warranty about these entities and how they will treat your personal information.
PineappleHR may disclose information in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: 1) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; 2) protect and defend our rights or property; 3) enforce the website Terms and Conditions of Use; or 4) act to protect the interests of our users or others.
If PineappleHR goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information collected through our website may be among the assets transferred. We’ll notify the change via website or email if you have provided and opted in to receive this kind of information.
