Hey friends, future friends, clients, contractors, colleagues, social media stalkers, those just stopping by, and everyone in between! There are a few housekeeping items and legal matters we have to share before we get to the fun part of working together.
Our Commitment to Privacy
Your Acceptance of These Terms
The Information We Collect
Anytime you access our website, your IP address (the internet address of your computer) is recorded so we may know how you are using our website. Your browser may automatically provide us with information regarding your computer and operating system (Mac or Windows; desktop, tablet, or mobile device; etc.). We use this information to monitor and improve our website. This information is not linked back to you as an individual user. On our Platform, you may fill out forms, order services, make requests, and register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected on these pages are name, address, email, phone, and billing information. To tailor our future communications with you and continue to improve our services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with our services, and contact preferences.
From Clients: First and last name, company name, company roles and department specifics, contact information (phone number, street address, city, state, postal code, country and email address), project description, as well as payment and invoice related information.
From Contractors: First and last name, contact information (phone number, street address, city, state, postal code, country and email address), resume, your skills, the type of work you are interested in, and payment information (so we can pay you). Some companies have strict security measures and require background checks prior to working on their project. This would require additional information, including your date of birth, being collected.
How We Use The Information
We gather and use this information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate with you, update you, and personalize our Website for you.
Occasionally, we may also use your information to contact you or provide you with information about our other solutions that we think would be of interest to you. You will always have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving direct marketing emails or market research communications. You may choose to opt-out at any time. We never use or share the personal information you provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or prohibit unrelated use of your information. We will not sell your personal information with any other third parties or sell your email address or any other contact information to any third parties for any purpose.
We may contact you through email, phone, or through notices posted on our Website or Platform. We may send you calendar invites to facilitate interviews with prospective Clients and messages about the projects available. We also send messages about how to use our Platform, network updates, reminders, project notifications, and promotional messages. Please be aware that you cannot opt-out of receiving service messages from us, including security and legal notices.
We also enable communication between you and prospective employers. You may receive email and phone communications from prospective employers.
Occasionally, we may post Client and Contractor testimonials, which may contain your personal information, including the Client or Contractor’s name on the Website. We will obtain your consent prior to posting the testimonial.
How You Can Correct Your Information
At any time, you can request a summary of your personal information that we have on record. You may also request that we dispose of any or all personal information about you, except the personal information we need to complete outstanding transactions or maintain records of previous transactions. We appreciate you helping us maintain the accuracy of your information by notifying us of any change to your personal information.
How to Contact Us
We strive to protect you and your personal information. Your information is stored on our Platform and is not publicly accessible. Each of our Contractors signs a confidentiality and nondisclosure agreement to ensure Client privacy. The Website has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control, and meets or exceeds community standards for the protection and confidentiality of personal identifiable information (“PII Data”). All of our services, including any payment information, are communicated across the internet using secure connections. Despite our efforts to keep your PII Data protected, we cannot guarantee the security of data traveling over the internet, especially via email.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a data privacy law that applies to certain businesses and is intended to enhance privacy rights and consumer protection for California residents.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a data privacy law that gives residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) more clarity and control over how their personal data is used. Personal data is anything that can directly or indirectly identify a person, such as a photo, name, bank details, medical information, computer IP address, etc.
Protecting the Privacy of Children
Children under 18 years old are not the target audience for our Website. To protect their privacy, we prohibit the solicitation of personal information from children under 13 years old and do not knowingly collect PII Data from children. No one under age 13 may provide any PII Data on the Website or Platform. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on this Website.
It is possible that we may have to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, other legal process, or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to:
- investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities;
- assist government enforcement agencies;
- enforce our agreements with you;
- investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations;
- protect the security or integrity of our company; or
- exercise or protect the rights and safety of Clients or Contractors.
