Sensitive Information and Sensitive Information Privileges (SIP)

Lever's Sensitive Information Privileges allows for flexible and granular permissioning of your most sensitive hiring data. These Privileges can be flexibly scoped on a per-user basis. They allow a user to view specified types of Sensitive Information on candidate profiles that are associated with jobs within specified departments, team, locations or individual job postings (learn more here).

You can also grant specific users one-off access to certain secret objects during the process of making those objects secret. Admins, Team Members, and Limited Team Members can also see hired candidate profiles if they are the owner or hiring manager of the posting the candidate was hired for.

For a more detailed and complete description of SIP and its configuration, please visit the Sensitive Information Privileges article here.
