Remotasks Privacy Policy

Effective Date: August 13, 2019

Smart Ecosystem, Inc. (“Remotasks”, “we”, or “us”) provides this Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information we receive from users of our website (such as https://www.remotasks.com/) and our products, services, and applications (collectively, the “Services”), or when you attend a Remotasks event or otherwise interact with us. This Privacy Policy applies to visitors of our websites and individuals registered for our Services (“Users”, “you”, or “your”), including Users who are provisioned an account by our service providers (“Service Providers”). Your privacy is important to us. Please read this policy carefully to understand how we will collect, use, and disclose your information, and what choices you have with respect to your information.

Information We Collect From You and Why

We collect and use the following information to provide, improve, promote, and protect the Services:

  • When you register with us through the Services to become a Remotasks User, we will ask you for information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“Personal Data”). We may request you to provide Personal Data such as your name, email address, address, and other background information related to your experience and education. We collect information, including Personal Data, that you submit to the Services. We use your Personal Data to provide the Services to you and our customers (“Customers”) whose tasks you perform and to administer your inquiries.
  • We also collect Personal Data that: (a) the Service Provider has provided to the Services directly or (b) that the Service Provider has provided to the Services indirectly through a third-party service (e.g., GSuite, Zendesk, etc.). We may use this information to provide the Services to you and our Customer.
  • If you express interest in obtaining information about our Services, sign up for an event or webinar, provide our business partners with your information, or download certain content, we may require you to provide us with Personal Data such as your name, email address, address, phone number, title, company name, and other information. We use this information to promote the Services to you with Remotasks newsletters, marketing, or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications.
  • We may collect information from you in surveys that we may conduct in order to improve the Services.
  • We may accept financial and payment information in order to process payment to you.

What Information We Collect From Devices and Usage and Why

We use typical tools and services, such as log files, cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies to automatically collect information, which may contain Personal Data, from your devices while you navigate our Services or interact with emails we sent to you.

  • When you use the Services, we may collect information about the devices you use to access the Services, including IP address, browser or device type, operating system, the website you visited before the Services, and identifiers of your devices. We use this information to provide, improve, and protect the Services.
  • When you interact with our Services, we collect information about how you use the Services, including tracking Users’ activity in our Services. We use this information to provide and improve the Services, and to protect the Services.
  • We use cookies, tracking pixels, and similar technologies by working with our trusted third-party service providers, including Google Analytics, to provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies for two purposes. First, we utilize persistent cookies to save your username and password for future logins to the Services. Second, we utilize session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Services, to better understand how you interact with the Services and to monitor aggregate usage by visitors and Users and web traffic routing on the Services. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from the Services and then close your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Services. A tracking pixel is a unique identifier embedded in a website, online advertisement, or email. We use tracking pixels to understand how you interact with our websites and emails and helps us and our advertising service providers better promote our Services. We also use HTML5 local storage objects (“HTML5 LSOs”) or Flash local storage objects (“Flash Cookies”) to store content information and preferences. Our website does not respond to Do Not Track signals.

How We Use Information

We collect and use the Personal Data described above in order to provide, improve, promote, and protect the Services, and to develop new products and services. We also collect and use Personal Data for our legitimate business needs. To the extent we process your Personal Data for other purposes, we or our trusted third-party service providers will ask for your consent. We may aggregate or de-identify information submitted to or collected by use of the Services so that the information does not identify you. This Privacy Policy does not restrict our use or disclosure of aggregated or de-identified information that complies with applicable law.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

We use your Personal Data as described below, but we don’t sell it to advertisers or other third parties.

  • If your User account was provisioned by a Service Provider, your administrator (“Admin”) may have access and control over the information associated with your account. The Service Provider may have its own policies governing access and use of information in your User account.
  • Remotasks uses certain trusted third-party service providers to help us provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services. These third parties may have access to your Personal Data to perform services on our behalf and in compliance with this Privacy Policy.
  • The tasks you complete via the Services are provided to our Customers. We may share your Personal Data with our Customers in order to confirm your identity and demonstrate that you have completed a background check.
  • You may provide a third-party service (e.g., a single sign-on service) with access to your information. The use of such information by a third-party service will be governed by the third-party service’s privacy policy.
  • We may share your information, including Personal Data, with Remotasks’s affiliates to provide, improve, protect, and promote the Services, or communicate with you.

Business Transfers

Remotasks may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Data, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy.

Data Modification, Deletion, and Retention

You may have the right to access, review, correct, amend, restrict, delete, opt-out of, or object to our use of the Personal Data provided to Remotasks by contacting us at [email protected]. We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and process your request. If your User account was provisioned by a Service Provider, the Service Provider is a “data controller” of your information, and if you seek to correct, amend, or delete data associated with your account, you should direct your requests to the Service Provider.

We will retain your Personal Data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

Security

Remotasks is concerned with safeguarding your information. Remotasks employs reasonable physical, technological, and administrative security measures. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

International Transfer

Information that we collect from you, will be transferred to, stored at, and processed by us, our affiliates, and other third parties in countries outside the European Economic Area, including, but not limited to, the United States and other countries, where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world.

For transfers of Personal Data from the European Economic Area and Switzerland to third countries, we will transfer Personal Data according to the requirements of EU data protection legislation, including by entering into European Commission Model Contracts or ensuring a third party’s participation in the EU-US or Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks.

Links to Other Websites

Our Services may contain links to, or interoperate with third-party services. When you click on a link to any other website or location, when you provides a third-party service with access to information in your account, such third-party may then collect or access information from you. The use of such information, including Personal Data, by the third-party service will be governed by the third-party service’s privacy policy. We have no control over, do not review, and cannot be responsible for, these third-party services. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of every website you visit and every third-party service you use.

Our Policy on Children

The Services are not directed to individuals under 18, or a higher age depending on your jurisdiction (“Required Age”). If Remotasks becomes aware that a child under the Required Age has submitted information to us, we will delete the information. If you believe that we may have any information from a child under the Required Age, please contact us at [email protected].

Modification of Privacy Policy

Remotasks may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. The “Last Updated” legend at the top of this page indicates when this Privacy Policy was last revised.
