Xidcorp Limited - Privacy Statement
Privacy is paramount to Xidcorp Limited (“Xidcorp”), and it is important that you understand the purposes for which we collect, use and sometimes disclose your personal information.
"Personal Information" constitutes information about an identifiable individual, which includes but may not be limited to an individual’s name, home address and phone number, age, sex, marital or family status, an identifying number, date of birth, financial information, educational history, medical history etc. Personal information, however, expressly excludes the name, title and business contact of the organization that an individual may be employed with.
In this privacy statement, we refer to the individuals whose certification records we maintain as “Members” or “Workers” and refers to those organizations that are associated with an individual Member for the purpose of accessing their skills and certifications. “Employers” are those organizations that authenticate the member and validate certifications. “Trainers” are the organizations that can perform training and issue certifications.
Who We Are?
workXid® is a Business Ecosystem that enables participating organizations to maintain common records of identification and training certification in a manner that maintains industry records integrity. Our Workforce Identity Services Ecosystem (WISE) promotes a shared workforce management environment that enables a network of organizations – including workers, employers, trade unions, training agencies, associations, and industry regulators to participate in the exchange of information supporting:
- Issuance of an industry photo ID card, with worker occupation and title (virtual, plastic or paper);
- A process to allow the worker to upload and manage their personal profile and proofs of skills and training certifications (an organization administrator can only validate certifications);
- An optional encrypted Emergency Medical Profile (fully worker-managed, access restricted and systems audited);
- A process to allow the worker to temporarily share their active certificate profile with a non workXid registered organization;
- An organization process to authenticate workers during employment onboarding;
- An organization process to validate a worker’s submitted certifications;
- Automated periodic notification of expiring certifications;
- Audited access to a worker’s training records or any other credentials supporting requisite skills compliance by Industry and Occupation (supporting National Occupational Classification coding);
- Realtime requisite credential checks during job assignment or site visitation;
- A process to automate worker attendance and perform screening with the use of our OnSite kiosk app (site check-in and out by location);
- Organization restricted Team messaging and collaboration; and
- Provision to allow Trainers to issue digitally signed training certificates to active registered workXid members.
