As a Job Seeker, certain information about you is shared with the Employer and other service providers, including your full name, telephone number and email address, availability, time and confirmation of payment.

Information you share publicly on the AyeWork Site may be indexed through third party search engines. These search engines may not update their databases. We do not control the practices of third party search engines, and they may use caches containing your outdated information.

3.3 Compliance with Law, Responding to Legal Requests, Preventing Harm and Protection of our Rights.

AyeWork may disclose your information, including personal information, to courts, law enforcement or governmental authorities, or authorized third parties, if and to the extent we are required or permitted to do so by law or if such disclosure is reasonably necessary: (i) to comply with our legal obligations, (ii) to comply with legal process and to respond to claims asserted against AyeWork, (iii) to respond to verified requests relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other of our users to legal liability, (iv) to enforce and administer our Terms of Service, or other agreements with you, or (v) to protect the rights, property or personal safety of AyeWork, its employees, its Users, and Providers, or members of the public.

These disclosures may be necessary to comply with our legal obligations, for the protection of your or another person’s vital interests or for the purposes of our or a third party’s legitimate interest in keeping the Site secure, preventing harm or crime, enforcing or defending legal rights, or preventing damage. Where appropriate, we may notify Users, or Providers about legal requests unless: (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law, or (ii) we believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective, create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud upon AyeWork’s property, its Users, Providers and the Site. In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify that User, or Provider about the request after the fact where appropriate and where we determine in good faith that we are no longer prevented from doing so.

3.4 Service Providers.

AyeWork uses a variety of third party service providers in Canada and the US to help us provide services related to the AyeWork Platform and the Payment Services

 

For example, service providers may help us: (i) verify your identity or authenticate your identification documents, (ii) check information against public databases, (iii) conduct background or police checks, fraud prevention, and risk assessment, (iv) perform product development, maintenance and debugging, (v) allow the provision of the Services through third party platforms and software tools (e.g. through the integration with our APIs), or (vi) provide customer service, advertising, or payments services. These providers have limited access to your information to perform these tasks on our behalf, and are contractually bound to protect and to use it only for the purposes for which it was disclosed and consistent with this Privacy Policy.

AyeWork will need to share your information, including personal information, in order to ensure the adequate performance of our contract with you.

3.5 Business Transfers.

If AyeWork undertakes or is involved in any merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets, bankruptcy, or insolvency event, then we may sell, transfer or share some or all of our assets, including your information in connection with such transaction or in contemplation of such transaction (e.g., due diligence). In this event, we will notify you before your personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

3.6 Aggregated Data.

We may also share aggregated information (information about our users that we combine together so that it no longer identifies or references an individual user) and other anonymized information for regulatory compliance, industry and market analysis, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

4.1 Analyzing your Communications.

We may review, scan, or analyze your communications on the Site for fraud prevention, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, investigation, product development, research, and customer support purposes. For example, as part of our fraud prevention efforts, we scan and analyze messages to mask contact information and references to other websites. In some cases, we may also scan, review, or analyze messages to debug, improve, and expand product offerings. We use automated methods where reasonably possible. However, occasionally we may need to manually review some communications, such as for fraud investigations and customer support, or to assess and improve the functionality of these automated tools. We will not review, scan, or analyze your communications to send third party marketing messages to you, and we will not sell reviews or analyses of these communications.

These activities are carried out based on AyeWork’s legitimate interest in ensuring compliance with applicable laws and our Terms, preventing fraud, promoting safety, and improving and ensuring the adequate performance of our services.

AyeWork Job Seekers and Employers may link their personal or professional websites with their AyeWork booking page. AyeWork is not responsible for any privacy or other terms and conditions applicable to the websites belonging to the Providers and listed on the Site.

THIRD PARTY PARTNERS & INTEGRATIONS

    Information you have shared with others (e.g., Reviews, forum postings) may continue to be publicly visible on the Site even after your Account is cancelled. However, attribution of such information to you will be removed. Additionally, some copies of your information (e.g., log records) may remain in our database, but are disassociated from personal identifiers.

    Because we maintain the Site to protect from accidental or malicious loss and destruction, residual copies of your personal information may not be removed from our backup systems for a limited period of time.

Where you have provided your consent to the processing of your personal information by AyeWork you may withdraw your consent at any time by changing your Account settings or by sending a communication to AyeWork specifying which consent you are withdrawing.

6.6 Objection to Processing.

In some jurisdictions, applicable law may entitle you to require AyeWork not to process your personal information for certain specific purposes (including profiling) where such processing is based on legitimate interest. If you object to such processing AyeWork will no longer process your personal information for these purposes unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for such processing or such processing is required for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
