PRO242 Technologies, Inc. participates in the Safe Harbor program developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Union and Switzerland. To learn more about this program and our participation in this program,
I. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
a) Information You Give Us
We collect information that you voluntarily share with us through the PRO242 Platform.
If you are using the PRO242 Platform to request professional services, you may give us:
If you participate on the PRO242 Platform as a service professional, you may give us:
If you apply on the PRO242 Platform for employment with PRO242, you may give us:
More about payment card information:
You may, at your choice, complete surveys on the PRO242 Platform about, for example, your level of satisfaction with the PRO242 Platform, your engagement with the PRO242 Platform, and your awareness of PRO242 Platform features. In some cases, we may link the information you provide in the survey with Personal Information in your PRO242 account, such as your name or email address. When linked to Personal Information, your survey information becomes Personal Information too.
b) Information We Collect Through Technology
We collect information through technology to enhance our ability to serve you. When you access and use the PRO242 Platform, PRO242 and, in some cases, our third-party service providers collect information about how you interact with the PRO242 Platform. We describe below a few of the methods we use to collect information through technology.
We require camera access and permissions to take pictures of the tasks from users, so that it could be sent to the vendor.
When you visit the PRO242 Platform, we collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is often associated with the portal you used to enter the Internet, like your Internet service provider (ISP), company, association, or university. While an IP address may reveal your ISP or geographic area, we cannot determine your identity solely based upon your IP address. However, we may link the last IP address you used to access the PRO242 Platform to Personal Information you provide us.
We may also collect a unique identifier for your computer, mobile device, or other device used to access the PRO242 Platform ("DeviceIdentifier"). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to the device you used to access the PRO242 Platform. We may link the Device Identifier to other information about your visit, such as what pages you viewed, and to Personal Information you provide us, such as your name.
Yes. For more information about cookies, please visit our Cookies Policy.
We may include small graphic images or other web programming code, called web beacons (also known as "pixeltags", "webbugs" or "clearGIFs"), in our web and mobile pages and messages. The web beacons are minute graphics with a unique identifier. They are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored in a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Web beacons help us better manage content on the PRO242 Platform by informing us what content is effective, monitoring how users navigate the PRO242 Platform, counting users of the PRO242 Platform, and counting how many e-mails sent by us were actually opened.
Your 'Do Not Track' Browser Setting
We do not support the Do Not Track (DNT) browser setting. DNT is a preference you can set in your browser's settings to let the websites you visit know that you do not want the websites collecting your Personal Information.
We do track your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. For example, we use web beacons to help us determine what links or advertisers brought you to our Site. We also use third-party service providers to display advertisements to you on other websites based on your activities while on the PRO242 Platform.
c) Information Collected by Mobile Applications
When you use the App, the App may automatically collect and store some or all of the following information from your mobile device ("Mobile Device Information"), including, but not limited to:
We may also collect information about how you use the App, such as the amount of time you spend using the App, how many times you use a specific feature of the App over a given time period, how often you use the App, and actions you take in the App. In addition, we may gather information about the website from which you downloaded the App to help us determine what App download site is most effective (collectively "App Usage Information").
We may link your Mobile Device Information and App Usage Information to Personal Information you have provided us, in which case we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
If you are a service professional using PRO242's mobile application for service professionals (the "ProPortal"), we may collect your geographic location by using Global Positioning System (GPS) information sent to us from the Pro Portal. For more information on when this information is collected, how we use it, and with whom it is shared, services professionals should refer to the Service Professional Agreement available on the service professional portal.
We only collect location information about service professionals who have been accepted to participate on the PRO242 Platform and not about service requesters or about service professionals applying to participate in the PRO242 Platform.
d) Information You Provide About A Third Party
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about the PRO242 Platform, we may collect your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the PRO242 Platform. We store this information only to send this one-time email and to track the success of our referral program. We do not use this information for any other marketing purpose unless we obtain consent from that person or we explicitly say otherwise. Please be aware that when you refer a friend, your e-mail address may be included in the message sent to your friend.
If you are using the PRO242 Platform to request professional services, you may provide us ratings and reviews of the service professionals you engage through the PRO242 Platform.
e) Information Third Parties Provide About You
We may supplement the information we collect about you through the PRO242 Platform with records received from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you information that we believe may be of interest to you. For example, websites on which we have placed advertisements, such as Google, may tell us which ads about PRO242 you clicked. This is often called "conversion tracking."
In addition, when third parties such as Hirease, Onfido, Sterling, or Checkr conduct background checks on service professionals, those third parties share the results of the background check with PRO242.
If you login to the PRO242 Platform through a social networking site, such as Facebook, we may collect your Facebook authentication token and account identification number and use that information to provide you with access to your account on the PRO242 Platform.
If you call or text (SMS) message a service professional or service requester using the telephone number provided by PRO242, PRO242 uses Twilio to mask your telephone number. During this process, PRO242 and Twilio receive in real time and store call data, including the date and time of the call or text (SMS) message, the parties’ phone numbers, and the content of the text (SMS) messages.
If you send a message to a service professional or service requester in the App, PRO242 uses Layer to process the communications. During this process, PRO242 and Layer receive in real time and store message data, including the date and time of the message, and the content of the messages.
If you are using the PRO242 Platform as a service professional, we may receive information about you in the form of ratings and reviews from requestors who engaged your professional services through the PRO242 Platform.
f) Information You Provide to a Third Party
The PRO242 Platform includes links from the PRO242 Platform to sites or applications operated by third parties ("Third-PartySites") and plug-ins (such as Twitter buttons) from Third-Party Sites.
For example, service professionals may be directed to a Third Party Site, such as Checkr.com, Onfido.com, SterlingTalentSolutions.com, or Hirease.com, so that the Third Party Site can conduct a background check. The Third Party Site may ask the service professional for identifying information to conduct the background check.

III. HOW WE SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The PRO242 Platform may display profiles of the service professionals who participate on the PRO242 Platform. These profiles may include the service professional’s name, and ratings and reviews about the service professional provided by their customers. The service professional’s profile may be visible to all users of the PRO242 Platform.
If you provide a rating or review about a service professional, we may post your first name, the initial of your last name, and the name of your neighborhood along with your rating or review on the service professional’s profile. In addition, service professionals may use your ratings and reviews, as well as this personal information about you, in their own marketing materials.
b) Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf

IV. HOW WE PROTECT THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The security and confidentiality of your Personal Information is important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access or disclosure and improper use.
For example, when users book services, the information they input is encrypted through SSL encryption. We do not store credit card information on our servers, and we use SSL encryption to protect your credit card information when it is transferred to our third-party payment processor. In addition, access to your Personal Information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the Personal Information to perform a specific job, for example, sales representatives, managers, and customer service staff, are granted access to Personal Information. All employees with access to Personal Information are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. After a new policy is added, these employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to enhance protection for our users' Personal Information.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your account password and to your computer. Be sure to log out of your account or to close your browser after you have completed your visit to our Site.
Please note that despite our reasonable efforts, no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information.

The employee Personal Information that PRO242 US receives from the Member States and Switzerland consists largely of information provided by Applicants, such as resumes and completed job applications and information created by PRO242 US or its affiliates to administer the employment relationship, such as business contact information, compensation and benefits information, etc.
PRO242 US will not use or disclose Personal Information transferred from a Member State or Switzerland to the United States for any purpose that has not previously been disclosed to the Individual unless: (a) the Individual has received notice and an opportunity to exercise choice, as described below, with respect to such use or disclosure; or (b) applicable law permits the use or disclosure without requiring that PRO242 US first comply with the Notice and Choice Principles.

PRO242 US will offer Individuals in the Member States and Switzerland whose Personal Information has been transferred to the United States the opportunity to opt out from: (a) the disclosure of Personal Information to a non-agent third party; and (b) the use or disclosure of their Personal Information for a purpose other than the purposes for which the information originally was collected or subsequently authorized by the Individual or a compatible purpose. PRO242 US will provide Individuals with reasonable mechanisms to exercise their choices should such circumstances arise.
