Dayforce's Service Provider Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement was last updated on July 3, 2024.


Dayforce, Inc. and all of its affiliates and subsidiaries (herein “Dayforce”) provide human capital management products and related services to organizations to help them manage their workforce. As such, Dayforce processes data about those organizations’ prospective, current and past employees (herein “Employees” or “Individuals”) on behalf of those organizations and as per their instructions. This Privacy Statement (“Statement”) describes our general practices relating to the processing of data about these organizations’ Employees (“Personal Information”). If you are an Individual whose prospective, current or past employer (herein “Employer”) uses a Dayforce application such as the Dayforce product or Powerpay, and your Employer has asked you to submit Personal Information as part of that service, you should review your Employer’s own privacy statement to understand that Employer’s privacy practices.

Personal Information Processing

In connection with products such as Dayforce and Powerpay, Dayforce will provide your Employer the ability to collect, store, use, transfer, share and disclose your Personal Information in support of a prospective, current or past employment relationship between you and your Employer. When Dayforce processes your data in this manner, it acts as a processor for your Employer, who is the controller. In its capacity as a processor, Dayforce only processes your Personal Information as per the instructions of the controller, for their benefit, and on their behalf. Therefore, Dayforce’s customers- your Employer(s)- are responsible for providing you with a notice of what Personal Information they collect, use and disclose, for what purposes they do so, and with whom it is shared. They are also responsible for obtaining appropriate consent where required or identifying other legal basis upon which they may rely to process your Personal Information.

Dayforce relies on its customers and its customers’ Employees to supply Dayforce with accurate, complete and up-to-date Personal Information where relevant to Dayforce’s delivery of the services. Individuals are asked to review their records on a regular basis and make the appropriate updates or notify their Employer of errors promptly. An Employee that contacts Dayforce and wants to make updates or changes to its records is directed by Dayforce to its Employer who is responsible for giving effect to such requests.

Dayforce may share Personal Information with its service providers to help it provide your Employer with a product or a service. When we make such onward transfers, we ensure that adequate contractual protections are put in place with these service providers. Dayforce’s liability for service provider’s performance of its obligations is set forth in the contract between Dayforce and your Employer, where Dayforce remains liable if its service providers fail to meet their obligations and Dayforce is responsible for the event giving rise to damage.

Dayforce may also share Personal Information with other third parties (e.g. banks, government tax agencies, benefit providers) at the instructions of your Employer. In addition, Dayforce may disclose Personal Information to law enforcement or other government authorities if required by law. In the event that Dayforce sells or divests assets or any portion thereof, Dayforce may disclose Personal Information to the company involved in the business transaction in support of the sale, or divestiture, and where applicable, in support of integration activities. It is Dayforce’s practice to require appropriate protection for Personal Information in these types of transactions.

Dayforce processes Personal Information that your Employer may collect through the service from or about you, or that your Employer may provide through the service. For example:

Dayforce may process time and attendance-related information on behalf of your Employer collected by timekeeping devices that leverage biometrics such as your fingerprint. Refer to Dayforce’s Biometric Statement to learn more about our related privacy practices.

When you use our mobile applications, Dayforce collects Personal Information in its capacity as a data controller to understand how these applications are used and to make improvements. For example, the Dayforce Mobile application gathers information for analytics, troubleshooting, and improvement. We use third-party services, such as Google Analytics, to view aggregated information about end-users’ usage and interactions. Please refer to Dayforce’s Global Privacy Statement for additional information.

Cross Border Transfers

To run our business, we may store and process your Personal Information in any country where Dayforce and authorized third parties operate. When we transfer your Personal Information in this manner across country borders, we implement adequate measures for its protection, and for compliance with applicable laws.

Dayforce utilizes the adequacy determinations made by the European Commission to transfer Personal Information to countries with data protection that is adequate to the EU. Dayforce also utilizes Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) for the transfer of Personal Information from the EU and Switzerland to other countries.
