  • information that is considered aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data which EPAM may use for any purpose. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal information but is not considered personal information in law as it does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity, unless EPAM combines or connects aggregated data with your personal information so that it can directly or indirectly identify you; and
  • EPAM collects technical data from various third parties and public sources as, such as:
    • analytics providers

Other than as required by law, EPAM websites do not collect any special categories of personal information about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). EPAM will not collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

EPAM will only use your personal information for the purposes for which it was collected, unless it reasonably considers that it needs to use it for another reason that is compatible with the original purpose. If EPAM needs to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, EPAM will notify you and explain the legal basis which allows EPAM to do so.

Sharing of Information

EPAM may disclose your personal information to the following categories of recipients:

  • to its group companies, professional advisers, third party services providers and partners who provide data processing services to EPAM (for example, to support the delivery of, provide functionality on, or help to enhance the security of EPAM websites), or who otherwise process personal information for purposes that are described in Privacy Notices or notified to you when EPAM collects your personal information. A list of EPAM’s current group companies is available upon request.
  • to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where EPAM believes disclosure is necessary (a) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (b) to exercise, establish or defend its legal rights, or (c) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person.
  • to any other person with your consent to the disclosure.
Legal Basis of Processing

If your personal information is protected by EU data protection law, EPAM’s legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which EPAM collects it. 

However, EPAM will normally collect personal information from you only (a) where it needs the personal information to perform a contract with you, (b) where the processing is in its legitimate interests and is not overridden by your rights, or (c) where it has your consent to do so. In some cases, EPAM may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which EPAM collects and uses your personal information, please contact EPAM using the contact details provided under the “Contact Details” heading below and in the right-hand side column. 

Use of Information

Any information collected by EPAM will be done in accordance with this Privacy Policy for the purposes of making better business decisions, supporting the activities you choose to engage in, and providing higher quality solutions and services to EPAM’s customers. EPAM uses your location information to tailor your experience with EPAM websites. It may also use any non-personal information collected to enhance EPAM websites, and your IP address for website diagnostics and administration. EPAM will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes it was collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, EPAM considers the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which EPAM processes your personal information and whether it can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

International Transfers

EPAM processes information on servers in many countries around the world and you consent to your personal information being processed on a server located outside the country in which you reside. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective). However, EPAM has taken appropriate safeguards to require that your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy, including, utilizing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal information between its group companies, which requires all group companies to protect personal information being processed from the European Economic Area to an equivalent standard to that required under European Union data protection law.

Information Security

EPAM protects your personal information in the same way that it protects its other confidential information, such as storing it on secure servers that only select EPAM personnel have access to, and by encrypting it to help prevent access by any unauthorized parties. EPAM has put in place procedures to deal with any personal information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach when legally required to do so.

  • Similarly, if EPAM has collected and processes your personal information based on your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time.  Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing EPAM conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
  • You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about EPAM’s collection and use of your personal information.  For more information, please contact your local data protection authority.
