Do we collect Biometric Data?
Several of our time clocks can use biometric information to aid in the clocking processes of users and to ensure that only authorized users gain access to restricted functions of the time clock device. Biometric Identifiers are collected and analyzed creating a “Template” that is stored while the Biometric Identifier (image) is immediately and permanently destroyed. All our clocks support alternate methods of clocking and biometric enrollment is not explicitly required for someone to use a Sundial Timekeeping device.
Biometric information (Template) is used for improving the user experience while clocking. Templates are collected and distributed to each of the time clock devices within the clock group. The time clock devices store the Template in an encrypted format. An encrypted copy of the Template is also maintained on the server where it is used to redistribute to other connected time clock devices as needed. Stored Templates, whether stored in the time clocks or on the server, are stored in an encrypted format. Sundial Time Systems does not provide the tools or knowledge needed decrypt the stored template. In addition, users of the Timekeeping software cannot access the stored Template. Because of this, they cannot disclose, redisclose or disseminate the stored Template.
Templates are based on the analysis of Biometric Identifiers (i.e. images), but are not images. The Template stored is an analysis of the biometric identifier and no biometric identifier or image is actually stored. As such, Templates cannot be used to recreate a fingerprint, face print, or palm print.
Templates are stored and used during the period of employment. When the employment is terminated and the employee record is deactivated, all copies of the Template are destroyed from the time clock(s) and software alike. It is possible to prevent the destruction of the Template. Check with your individual employer if you are concerned about delayed destruction of the Template.
Sundial has a policy specifically created for Biometric Data, its collection, use and destruction. We encourage any interested party to review it.

Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe.

Biometric Device Privacy Statement
Biometric Devices (“Device”) purchased by you (“Customer”) from Sundial Time Systems (Sundial) for time tracking, visitor management or other intended purposes, use biometric technology to recognize and record biometric data from individuals who interact with the Device. “Biometric Data” means any information based on an individual’s retina or iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, or scan of hand or face geometry which is used to identify an individual, regardless of how it is captured, converted, stored or shared.
Description of Device Biometric Functionality
- When an individual enrolls with or authenticates themselves to the Device, the Device captures and stores an image of that individual’s biometric identifier, either the individual’s face, fingerprint, or palm vein geometry, (“Identifier”) but only for the time needed to create the individual biometric template (“Template”) used for subsequently recognizing that same individual.
- Thereafter, only the Template, which is a binary computer file (not an image file) representing a tiny subset of the individual’s Identifier is stored. After an individual’s Template is generated, the individual’s Identifier (the image of the employee’s face, fingerprint or palm vein geometry) is immediately and permanently destroyed from the Device.
- The individual’s Identifier is temporarily stored during the process of generating the Template and the device does not permanently store any Identifier.
- Sundial Devices and all Templates stored in the Devices operating software or in the hosted service are built with precise algorithms and or encrypted and protected.
Customer Responsibilities and Compliance with Laws
It is the sole responsibility of the Customer that collects, captures, stores or otherwise uses Biometric Data relating to an individual, to:
- Inform the individual from whom Biometric Data will be collected, in writing and prior to collecting the individual’s Biometric Data, that Biometric Data is being collected, stored and/or used;
- Indicate, in writing, the specific purpose(s) and length of time for which Biometric Data is being collected, stored, and/or used; and
- Receive a written release from the individual (or a legally authorized representative) authorizing the Customer and Sundial to collect, store, and/or use the Biometric Data and authorizing the Customer to disclose such Biometric Data to Sundial and any Customer third party service providers
Sundial encourages Customer to consult with legal counsel knowledgeable in the area of biometric privacy, especially if the Customer operates in state(s) which have enacted privacy laws governing the collection and/or storage of an individual’s Biometric Data. The Customer is solely responsible for taking any steps necessary to ensure that the Customer is in compliance with applicable biometric privacy laws when using biometric Devices.
Sundial Responsibilities and Hold Harmless
Disclosure and sharing of Biometric Information
Sundial will not sell, lease, trade or otherwise profit from any Biometric Data that it receives from Customer’s or their employees. Customer data used for development and support purposes is available only to the Sundial team members that are working on the specific tasks described. Biometric Data will not be used for any other purpose than as described herein.
Sundial will not disclose, redisclose or otherwise disseminate any Biometric Data received from Customer to any person or entity other than Sundial or Sundial’s third party service providers except for if disclosure or redisclosure is required by state or federal law or municipal ordinance or disclosure is required pursuant to a valid warrant or subpoena issued by a court of competent jurisdiction.
Retention of Biometric Information
Sundial shall retain Customer Biometric Data for up to 90 days after it is deleted by the Customer. Customer deletion of Biometric Data occurs when the Customer marks an employee Inactive and instructs the Service to remove the employee’s clock identity. Any Customer data that is being used by development and/or support personnel is permanently deleted when no longer needed by Sundial.
Storage of Biometric Information
Sundial will use a reasonable standard of care, consistent with the industry in which Sundial operates, to store, transmit and protect from disclosure all Biometric Data, and shall store, transmit, and protect from disclosure all Biometric Data in a manner that is the same as or more protective than the manner in which Sundial stores, transmits, and protects other confidential or sensitive data that can be used to uniquely identify an individual or an individual’s account or property.
Sundial shall be held harmless by Customer and all of Customer’s individual users for the use of Devices by Customer in a manner that is not compliant with applicable laws.
