Implementation Summary

Ethyca uses the following endpoint in Greenhouse to retrieve Personally Identifiable Information (PII) when a user submits a data subject request. See below for a summary of what Ethyca does with each endpoint:

Endpoints Download My Data (SAR) Erase Me (Right to Forget)
Candidate Yes Yes

Because Greenhouse is an applicant tracking system and recruiting software, it stores PII about your customers. Keep this in mind when you are creating your PII mapping as it will impact what is returned in your subject’s DSR package.

If this aligns with your use of Greenhouse, please proceed to the next section to begin setting up your integration in the Control Panel.

For any questions, please reach out to your dedicated Privacy Success Manager.
