Our Commitment to Privacy
Information We Collect
Although much of the Site is available without registration or providing personal information, in order to take advantage of some of our Site’s features, you will be asked to provide personal information. This personal information is provided voluntarily by you, the user, in order to participate or register for a particular product or service, or when you otherwise communicate with us or the Site. Personal information will be collected at various pages on the Site, including when you:
- Submit an online inquiry
- Submit an investor relations information request
- Sign up for email alerts, newsletters and other MAXIMUS information
- Submit an employment application
We clearly identify data you must provide so we can deliver the services or information you request. MAXIMUS may ask that you provide personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP/Postal code), country of residence, email address, employer, job title and department, telephone numbers and other personal information. Providing this information is optional, but failure to do so in some cases will limit the services available to you.
In addition, our web servers automatically collect and log web usage data from you when you visit the Site. This information, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, referring sites, pages viewed, browser type, operating system, CPU speed, referring or exit web pages, and length of visit, informs us about how visitors use and navigate the Site.
How We Use and Share the Information Collected
MAXIMUS does not share your personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties, but we may use your information to, among other things:
- Provide newsletters and information about MAXIMUS
- Provide the information or service requested or otherwise respond to your inquiries
- Improve the content, navigation and efficiency of the Site
- Make you aware of other benefits, products, services or events offered by MAXIMUS that may interest you
In order to respond to an information request you submit through the Site, we may share your personal information with our affiliated companies that may be able to respond directly to your inquiry. In addition, we may disclose your information to third parties (1) in connection with a merger, sale or consolidation of all or substantially all our assets, or (2) to comply with valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order. By using this Site, you agree and acknowledge that personal information collected through the Site may be transferred across national boundaries and stored and processed in any country around the world, including the United States.
We may use and share with others aggregated or anonymous (not personally identifiable) information that we have collected based on web usage data, surveys or statistical information that we have compiled about our users.
MAXIMUS collects your personal information to allow us to process your application for employment. Your personal information will be treated as confidential and made accessible only to authorized MAXIMUS employees and/or suppliers, external representatives and third parties engaged specifically to support MAXIMUS in conducting recruitment and selection or onboarding activities and for employment purposes in respect of successful candidates.
You may be asked to provide additional information not contained in your application to assist the recruitment and selection processes (for example, references or for vetting and/or security checks). If you choose not to provide the requested information, it may limit our ability to assess your suitability for employment and we may be unable to proceed with your application.
Certain email alerts you sign up for on the Site (e.g., investor email notifications) allow you to update your notification preferences online. You may also change your preferences regarding the types of communications you receive from MAXIMUS by emailing us at PrivacyOfficial@maximus.com.
If you are a California resident, California law (Calif. Bus. & Prof. Code § 22575-22578) entitles you to request information concerning whether your personal information has been disclosed to nonaffiliated third parties for their direct marketing purposes. We do not share your personal information with nonaffiliated third parties for such purposes.
"Do Not Track" is a preference you can set in your web browser to let the websites you visit know that you do not want them collecting information about you. The Site does not currently respond to a "Do Not Track" or similar signals.
MAXIMUS uses various technological and procedural security measures in order to protect the personal information we collect through the Site from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. We have documented Information Security & Privacy policies to address data protection. We regularly provide information security and privacy awareness training to our employees. However, you should be aware that, due to the open and unsecured character of the internet, MAXIMUS cannot be responsible for the security of transmissions of personal information over the internet. We have prepared a formal incident response plan in case of a data breach. Please do not submit Protected Health Information through our Site.
