Instawork collects information and makes it available to help create economic opportunity for local businesses and local professionals, globally. One of the main reasons we use the information is to help people find the right jobs and businesses to find the right people, either for temporary jobs (including gigs) or permanent jobs.
Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Information include information you may provide in connection with a payment or banking service (“Payment Service”) offered as a convenience to you in association with the Services, whereby you can maintain your credit card or bank account information (each a “Payment Account”) securely with us in connection with your Registered Account. Such information may also include, depending on whether it can be reasonably linked to your other Personal Information or used to identify you, your IP address, MAC address, device-specific information (including hardware information about any device you are using to access or use the Services, such as your UDID or hardware model information), device type, unique device identifiers, advertising identifiers, serial numbers, mobile network information, file names and versions, preferred languages, operating system information (including your operating system version), browser type, location information, user preferences, dates and times of use of the Services, browsing activity and browsing history, and features you have used (collectively, “Usage Data”). Personal Information and Personally Identifiable Information also include certain combinations of such information that meets the applicable statutory or other legal definition of “Personally Identifiable Information” or “Personal Information” for purposes of breach notification (such information, “Statutory PII”).
By registering and creating a Registered Account or using the Services in a way in which you disclose your Personally Identifiable Information, you consent to and authorize us to receive, view, display, use, disclose, transmit and maintain such Personally Identifiable Information on your behalf in connection with providing the Services to you. You acknowledge and agree that such Personally Identifiable Information may be transferred from your current location to our offices and servers and the authorized third parties referred to herein.
“Information” collectively refers to Personal Information, Non-Personal Information and Usage Data.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
1. Information You Choose To Submit
The Services aim to match businesses with prospective workers who will be a good fit for a given job, and the information we collect is intended to support that goal. For example, if you post a job on behalf of a Business or created a related Registered Account, we may collect your name, email address and other Personal Information about you and the Business. Similarly, if you are a Worker, we may collect your name, email address, home address and other materials and other Personal Information you submit as part of the registration or application submission process or gig-matching process (including your resume, name and contact information for your References and related data pertinent to using the Services). Specifically, we collect information about you (including Personal Information) that you choose to submit to us in connection with your use of our Services, including information submitted when you:
· Create or update your Registered Account (including creating and updating information on your Worker or Business profile), which, depending on your location and the Services you use, may include your name, email, social security number, mobile device number, phone number, username and password, address, payment or banking information, government identification numbers, birth date and photographs
· Request certain services or features through the Services (such as through our mobile applications or websites)
· Contact Instawork, including for support
· Contact other users (including Workers, References or Businesses) through our Services
· Work gigs as a Worker through our Services
· Post gigs as a Business through our Services
· Complete surveys sent to you by Instawork or on behalf of Instawork
· Enable features that require Instawork’s access to your address book or calendar
2. Information Created When You Use The Services
· Location Information: Depending on the Services that you use, and your mobile application settings or device permissions, Instawork may collect your precise or approximate location information, as determined through data such as GPS, IP address and WiFi. Instawork collects location information when the mobile application is running in the foreground (mobile application open and on-screen) of your device. Instawork may collect this information when the mobile application is running in the background of your device if this collection is enabled through your application settings or device permissions. You may use the mobile application without enabling Instawork to collect your location information. However, this may affect the functionality of the mobile application and you may not be able to use all features of the Services. For example, to be considered for jobs or to work gigs offered through our Services, you must enable Instawork to collect your location information so that we can ensure you show up to interviews or gigs on time.

· Calls and Text Messages: In addition to our Communications with Businesses and Workers, we enable users to communicate with each other directly through communications initiated by them through the Services. For example, we enable Businesses and Workers to contact one another directly through the Services. Instawork receives some information regarding such calls or texts, including the date and time of the applicable call or text, and the content of the text messages. Instawork may use this information for customer support services (including to resolve disputes between users), for safety and security purposes, and for analytics.Additionally, in order to provide the Services to you, Instawork will communicate with you with Communications or through its Alert Service, which includes contacting or messaging you by telephone, email, short message service or text message. Additionally, Instawork and its partners and affiliates may contact you at any telephone number(s) you provide in connection with your use of the Services. By providing your contact information, you consent to receive Communications (including Communications containing an artificial voice or prerecorded message or made using an automatic telephone dialing system) from us, our affiliates and partners, and any Business from which you are seeking a temporary job (including a gig) or permanent job, at any of the contact information you provided, including your wireless number, even if that number is registered on a corporate, state, or national do-not-call registry.
