We may also collect information about you from our users and third parties.  If you are a Wonoloer, we may receive information about you from Customers and combine it with information we receive from or about you.

If you choose to share any Personal Data with us, you agree that you have obtained permission to share such information with us.  

3. How We Use Your Information

We use the information you submit to us to provide our Service, to improve our Service, to facilitate the relationship we have with our users, for safety and security reasons, and to provide you with a personalized experience when using our Service.

To provide our Service. We use information you provide to keep our Service and operations up and running. Specifically, your Personal Data is used for the creation and security of your account, to identify you as a user in our system, to provide administration of our Service, to send you an e-mail to verify ownership of the e-mail address provided by you when your account was created, to send you administrative e-mail notifications, to perform a background check, to send you alerts you have configured, to notify you of suitable jobs, to pay you for work performed, to charge you for work performed, and to send you promotional communications.

To improve our Service. We use the information you provide to develop and test new products and features on our mobile application and related services, and improve our current products and features. For example, we may use Personal Data to better personalize the jobs that our app displays to Wonoloers.

To facilitate the relationship between our users. If you are a Wonoloer, we may share portions of your Personal Data, including contact information and photograph, with Customers to communicate the acceptance of your job and to allow Customers to communicate with you regarding current and future jobs. Customers may retain your contact information after jobs are complete. In order to notify you of suitable jobs, and to notify Customers when you are arriving onsite or leaving the site, we use the location information provided by your phone through the mobile application. We may receive updates to your location even when the mobile application is running in the background. You are able to use your phone settings to prevent Wonolo from obtaining your location. However, this will mean that you will be unable to receive notifications from Wonolo of suitable jobs.  We also may collect and share information about you if you were referred to Wonolo by another Wonoloer. We may share the following information with that Wonoloer: (1) your onboarding status (i.e., whether you have onboarded onto our mobile application); (2) whether you have accepted your first job; (3) whether you have completed your first job; and (4) your customer rating on your first job.

For safety and security. We use some Personal Data to enhance our security in our mobile application, websites, platform, and related services.

For marketing and advertising. We use information we receive from you through the use of your activity on our websites, mobile application, platform, and related services to improve our advertising services, ad targeting, and ad measurement, so that we can provide you with a personalized experience. This means that you may see ads that are personalized to you based on your location or your interests.  Along these these lines, you grant Wonolo a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, sublicensable, royalty-free license to use, copy, modify (for formatting purposes only), transmit, publicly and digitally display and perform and distribute any content that you provide to or share with Wonolo.  Such license shall also permit Wonolo to use that content and other information related to your use of the Service for the purposes of (i) growing Wonolo communities, (ii) conducting marketing activities and analyses, (iii) conducting statistical analyses and; (iv) maintaining or making improvements to the Service.

4. How We Share Your Information

We share your Personal Data with service providers that are authorized by us and perform services on our behalf, including background checks, payment processing, customer support, web hosting, information technology, fraud control, direct mail and email distribution, events, contest, sweepstakes and promotion administration, marketing, and analytics services. We may also share Personal Data that is aggregated or de-identified information with authorized third parties for legitimate business purposes.

We use third party cloud data hosting and storage providers such as AWS to store your information. In any event, we only share with authorized service providers the Personal Data that they need to perform services for us.

Compliance, Safety, and Security. We may also disclose your Personal Data for legal, safety, and security reasons.
