Aon Hewitt's Commitment to Protecting Personally Identifiable Information
We have implemented various security measures to help reduce the risk of unauthorized
processing or disclosure of personal information and accidental loss, destruction,
or damage to your personal information. We have implemented a computer security
policy and related procedures, and we train our employees about data security
issues. Only employees who have a job-related need to do so are authorized
to access personal information, and they have agreed to protect the confidentiality
of that information. In addition to these employees, only your employer and
particular service providers are authorized to access your personal information.
We also require that our subcontractors enter into confidentiality agreements
intended to protect your personal information.
Our commitment to protecting personally identifiable information also means
- We won't sell your personally identifiable information to any third party;
- We won't use, transfer,
or disclose your personally identifiable information to anyone outside
of Aon Hewitt, unless authorized by you, except in connection
with your employer's plans and programs, as required by law or legal process,
in response to law enforcement requests, and as necessary to protect the
property, interests, and rights of Aon Hewitt and/or your employer.
Aon Hewitt is committed to accurately maintaining your personally identifiable
information. Although we can't guarantee that your personal information will
be 100% accurate at all times, we'll take reasonable steps to correct personal
information that is properly identified as incorrect.
