Information Collection and Use
We collect and use your information below to provide our Services and to measure and improve them over time. We do not disclose your private personal information except in the limited circumstances described within this policy.
Basic Account Information
When you create or reconfigure a WorkJam account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Your name and username are listed on our Services, including on your profile section and in search results. In some cases, you may be required to provide information such as your mobile phone number to use WorkJam via SMS or to help us prevent spam, fraud, or abuse.
You may provide us with profile information to make available to others, such as a short biography, past work experience, your location, picture and video and other information about yourself. You may also provide further information about yourself to customize your account.
Our Services are primarily designed to help you find work, manage your work schedule and communicate with employers and other co-workers. Information you share with us is information you are asking us to use to accomplish these and other related tasks. This includes your activity on the service including messages you write and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services. We may use this information to customize the content we show you, including ads.
You may choose to allow us to use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as work available near you, relevant ads and to improve and customize the Services.
WorkJam may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant content, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.
When you use our Services, we may receive information (“Log Data“) such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications, use your WorkJam account to authenticate to a third-party website or application, or visit a third-party website that includes a WorkJam button or widget. We may also receive Log Data when you click on, view or interact with a link on our Services to a third-party application. WorkJam uses Log Data to provide, understand, and improve our Services.
Third-Parties and Affiliates
WorkJam uses a variety of third-party services to help provide our Services, such as hosting our web site and blogs, and to help us understand and improve the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address. Third-party ad partners may share information with us, like a browser cookie ID, website URL visited, mobile device ID, or cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as an email address), to help us measure and tailor ads.
Law and Harm
Our Commitment to Security
Although we can’t guarantee the security of the information we collect and receive, we do employ a number of safeguards intended to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access or disclosure of this information. For example:
- We store the data you provide in controlled facilities;
- We use HTTPS encryption when you authenticate (i.e., log into) one of our Services, which helps prevent unauthorized access to your login credentials;
- We limit access to personal information to employees and third parties who need that access to perform their jobs for us; and
- We provide company-wide training on privacy and data security.
The safeguards we apply to protect the information we collect and receive depends on the type of information and its sensitivity.
“Do Not Track” Signals
Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which the browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. WorkJam currently does not take action in response to these signals. If and when a standard for responding is established, WorkJam may revisit its policy on responding to these signals.
Modifying Your Personal Information
If you are a registered user of our Services, we provide you with tools and account settings to access or modify the personal information you provided to us and associated with your account.
Our Policy Towards Children
Our Services are not directed to persons under 13. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at email@example.com. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.
