1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU
You provide us with information (personal and impersonal) by creating an Account, using the gigl Platform and the App and communicating with us, the Company, and other Users generally. You may also provide information by telephone (such as SMS, Whatsapp etc) or by email, but this is more unusual. Let’s call this “Information”.
If you are using the gigl Platform as a Gigler, Information may include your name, email address, physical/correspondence address, availability dates, photograph, audio/video recording of yourself, description, contact details, previous employment experience, identification documents (such as passport, driving license etc, which the Company or its trusted third parties may use to verify your identity), social media accounts and addresses, copies of pertinent documents required by Employers or any legal authorities, date of birth, bank account details, and any other details you may be asked to provide either to create an Account and become a User, or you may wish to place on the gigl Platform in order to increase your potential.
If you are using the gigl Platform as a Employer, we may take the same Information as a Gigler, with logical amendments.
2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
The following Information will be automatically collected each time a User uses the gigl platform:
technical information, including the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your device to the Internet, login information, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform; and information about your visit, including the dates and times you use the gigl Platform, Gig-Jobs viewed, posted or applied for, viewing/searching for screen response times, download errors, length of visits to certain screens, screen interaction information, methods used to browse away from the page.
We also collect Information from other sources.
This is Information provided to us by third party sources, for the benefit of the gigl community. For example:
If you are an Employer, we may collect further Information about you from credit reporting agencies. We may combine this data with the other Information we have collected about you via the gigl Platform. Where possible we will notify you when such Information is received, and how the Company will use it.
