If your information is not accurate, up-to-date and current, we may not be able to process your requests for information or contacts or provide Service to you effectively.

In its sole discretion or when required by law, TrueBlue may give you choices about how personal information or analytics information is Disclosed. These choices include the following options with respect to certain communications:
• Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. You may access, correct, or request deletion of your personal information by sending an email to your local TrueBlue branch or representative or texting "Help" to 27697. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
• We acknowledge that you have the right to access your personal information. In some circumstances, we have no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data we process. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should direct their query to our client (the data controller). If requested to remove data we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
• We may provide you with information about special or new features of our website, services, products or offers from us which we think may be of interest to you; if you would rather not receive this information, please send an email to your local TrueBlue branch or representative or text "Help" to 27697;

• We may provide your information to third parties whose products or services we believe may be of interest to you, so that they may contact you directly with information and offers about their products or services.

You may sign-up to receive emails from us on some of our websites. If you would like to discontinue receiving this information, you may update your email preferences by using the “Unsubscribe” link found in emails we send to you, by sending an email to your local TrueBlue branch or representative or by texting “Help” to 27697.
You may opt out of certain other communications that we provide by following the instructing for opting out in those communications.
We use “cookies”, clear gifs, log file information, and other tracking technologies (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”) to obtain certain information when your browser or mobile device accesses our website. For example, when you log in to our website to apply for an employment opportunity, a session cookie is created while you are on the website. This enables you to apply for multiple positions without having to log back into the system each time. If you do not wish to receive any Tracking Technologies, you should examine your browser settings and instructions, though we make no promise that they will be effective. This may mean you will not be able to take full advantage of the services provided on our website.
We use Tracking Technologies to do a variety of things, including (without limitation) to: understand what web pages you have viewed, what links you click, the searches you conduct on the website and how frequently specific pages are visited.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your ability to access or use certain features of the website or our services. Similarly, you may be able to adjust settings on your mobile device to limit the personal information it stores, and these adjustments may affect your ability to access or use certain features of the website or our services.
Your selection of a “Do Not Track” option provided by your browser may not have any effect on the Tracking Technologies or the automatic collection of analytics information. This may be for a number of reasons. For example, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognizable even if you disable a Tracking Technology; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website usually will not be able to control other websites.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received. The internet and mobile phones are not secure media and no system can be considered 100% secure. We do not guarantee personal information or analytics information is protected and we accept no liability for loss or exposure of user information in the event of a breach. In the event a security breach should occur, we will endeavor to remedy the problem. By registering for our services or by using the website, you hereby affirmatively consent to receiving our notification regarding any breach or compromise, or suspected breach or compromise, of the security of your personal information, by email, telephone whether through voice or text messages, posting on our website, or postal mail, as we deem appropriate, and as required by law.
It is your responsibility to keep your username, password and other account access information in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also, remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.
TrueBlue reserves the right: to keep personal information and analytics information:
• for as long as it provides Services to you;
• to comply with our legal obligations;
• to resolve disputes and enforce our agreements; and
• to dispose of it at TrueBlue’s discretion without notice, subject to applicable law.
TrueBlue participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. TrueBlue is committed to subjecting all personal data received from European Union (EU) member countries, in reliance on the Privacy Shield Framework, to the Framework’s applicable Principles.
