Yardi Careers Privacy Notice

Effective Date: April 22, 2024

At Yardi, we strive to take care of our clients, take care of our employees, take care of our communities, stay focused, and grow.

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting the personal information you share with us. We developed this Careers Privacy Notice (the “Privacy Notice”) to inform you of how Yardi will use the personal information you submit through the career opportunities section of the Yardi website, or to Yardi in any other way, as part of a job application or job search process (“Application Information”).

All Application Information you submit to Yardi Systems, Inc., and its affiliated entities (“Yardi”) is collected by Yardi in the United States, as well as the jurisdiction where the contact for the position is located. Application Information may be shared with our affiliates in other jurisdictions for employment consideration purposes. Submitting your Application Information is voluntary. However, if you choose not to submit your Application Information, our ability to consider you as a candidate may be limited. We will ask for your consent before we obtain additional information from third party agencies, and will, where required by law, notify you of the information received from those third parties.

This Privacy Notice does not create or form part of any employment contract.

If you have questions about this Privacy Notice, please contact us using the information below.

What Personal Information is collected through the application process?

Personal information means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.  In some circumstances, it does not include deidentified, anonymized or aggregate information or public information lawfully available from governmental records.  In the course of the job application process, we may collect the following categories of personal information from you for the following purposes:

Data Transfers

Yardi is a global business.  We are headquartered in California in the United States and have offices across North America.  We also have entities located within the European Economic Area (EEA), the United Kingdom (UK), the United Arab Emirates, Australia, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and China. 

Therefore, in connection with our business and for employment, administrative, management and legal purposes we may process and transfer the personal information that we collect about you outside the country in which you are located. 

When we transfer your personal information to members of our group or to our service providers outside the EEA or the UK, we will ensure that the transfer is lawful and that there are appropriate security arrangements in place. We have entered into agreements ensuring appropriate and suitable safeguards with our group members and service providers in those countries. Those agreements incorporate standard contractual clauses approved for such transfers by the European Commission or other approved transfer mechanisms.

You may request information about the safeguards that we have put in place in respect of transfers of personal data by contacting us as described in the Contacting Us section below.

Data Retention

The criteria for deciding how long to retain personal information is generally based on whether such period is sufficient to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it as described in this Privacy Notice, including complying with our legal record retention obligations and for other compliance, protection, and safety purposes described above.  Application Information is retained in accordance with applicable law. We may also retain Application Information to consider you for other jobs for which you may be qualified.

How does Yardi keep your Personal Information secure?

Yardi is committed to protecting the security of any personal information you provide to us.  Yardi uses appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect any such information you submit. Despite these protections, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be completely secure, so you should take appropriate precautions before deciding what information you send us in this way.

Rights of Individuals

If you wish to exercise any of your data protection rights or if you consider that we have processed your personal data in violation of applicable law, please contact us as detailed in the “How to contact us” section below.

For EEA/UK/Swiss applicants:  If you consider that we have processed your personal data in violation of applicable law and failed to remedy such violation to your reasonable satisfaction, you may also lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority in your country. You can find contact details for data protection authorities in the EEA here, and the UK here.
