Peraton’s Careers website is managed by iCIMS, a third party vendor.

Peraton will not use this information for any purpose other than to evaluate your employment application and for human resources processing. Unless you request otherwise, Peraton’s third party vendor may keep your personal information for Peraton’s future use, including consideration for future employment opportunities with Peraton. It is important to note that the privacy policies of the third party vendor operating Peraton’s Careers website may differ from Peraton’s. Peraton strongly encourages you to review its third party vendor’s privacy policies and terms of use posted on its website before submitting any personal information in connection with your employment application:

Except in rare circumstances where Peraton is required by law to disclose or otherwise process your personal information, Peraton will only process your personal information as necessary for the purposes explained to you when the information is collected or as otherwise described in this notice.

How We Share the Personal Information Peraton Collects

Peraton does not sell, lease, rent, or license the personal information it collects to third parties.

Peraton may disclose personal information to third parties in the following circumstances:

  • To third party service providers to facilitate the services they provide (for example, third party payroll processors and auditors);
  • To submit bids for proposals from the government or commercial customers;
  • To perform contractual services for customers (including, for example, with a Peraton subcontractor or a prime contractor for which Peraton is a subcontractor);
  • To protect Peraton’s rights, privacy, safety, or property, and that of its customers, employees, its affiliates, users, and others;
  • To support an investigation of cybersecurity and other security events, espionage, fraud, insider threats, and other illegal activity;
  • In the event of a merger, sale, transfer, or other disposition of all or any portion of Peraton business assets or stock;
  • When requested by law enforcement or other government authorities;
  • When required by law, regulation, court order, or other legal process; and
  • For any other legal purpose.

Peraton routinely requires the third party business partners to which it provides personal information to protect and maintain that information in confidence, and not to license, sell or otherwise transfer such information except as directed by Peraton.
