Information We Collect
We collect information about you, including information that directly or indirectly identifies you, if you choose to share it with us. We receive information in a few different ways, specifically when you register for an account. There are also several opportunities for you to share information about yourself with us. For example:
We collect basic account information such as your name, email address, and password that helps secure and provide you with access to our Services.
Profile and use information is collected about you when you choose to upload a profile picture.
We collect and process location information when you sign up for and use the Services.
We might allow you in the future to sign up and log in to the Services using accounts you create with third-party Products and Services, such as Facebook (collectively, “Third-Party Accounts”). If you access the Services with Third-Party Accounts we will collect information that you have agreed to make available such as your name, email address, profile information and preferences with the applicable Third-Party Account. This information is usually collected by the Third-Party Account provider and could be provided to us under their privacy policies. You can generally control the information that we receive from these sources using the privacy settings in your Third-Party Account.
We collect information from your browser, computer, or mobile device, which provide us with technical information when you access or use the Services. This technical information includes device and network information, cookies, log files and analytics information.
Cookies and Similar Technologies
When you visit the Services, a cookie will be stored on your computer. Generally, cookies and similar technologies work by assigning to your browser or device a unique number that has no meaning outside of our services. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. To manage the collection of information through cookies or other equivalent technology you can use the settings on your browser or mobile device. We are committed to providing you choices to manage your privacy and sharing. Not accepting cookies may make certain features of the Services unavailable to you. We may also use your IP address to identify you, to administer the Services and to assist in diagnosing problems with our servers.
How We Use Your Information
We use the information to analyse, develop and improve the Services. To do this, we may use third party analytics providers to gain insights into how our Services are used and to help us improve the Services. We may also use your information to market the Services, provide support related to the Services, protect members and enforce our Terms of Service, promote safety, and communicate with you.
We use your information to communicate with you about the Services, send you marketing communications (and by registering you have agreed to receive such messages), or let you know about new features or updates to our Terms of Service. We also use your information to respond to you when you contact us. We will use your information to communicate with you, for example by sending you notifications.
How Information is Shared
We will not sell any personal information with any external entity. We may use third parties to carry out certain activities, such as social media processing and sorting data, monitoring how customers use the Website and issuing our e-mails for us. Third parties will not be allowed to use your personal information for their own purposes.
As mentioned, we may share your information with third parties who provide services to us such as supporting and improving our Services (i.e. Google Analytics) . These service providers will only have access to the information necessary to perform these limited functions on our behalf and are required to protect and secure your information.
Publicly Available Information
Your information and content will not be publicly accessible.
Affiliates and Acquirors of our Business or Assets
We may preserve and share your information with third parties, including law enforcement, public or governmental agencies, or private litigants, within or outside your country of residence, if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the law, including to respond to court orders, warrants, subpoenas, or other legal or regulatory process. We may also retain, preserve or disclose your information if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary or appropriate to prevent or detect violations of our Terms of Service or fraud or abuse of DigitalWorkforce.ch or its members, or to protect our operations or our property or other legal rights, including by disclosure to our legal counsel and other consultants and third parties in connection with actual or potential litigation.
How We Protect Information
We take several measures to safeguard the collection, transmission and storage of the data we collect. Although we strive to employ reasonable protections for your information that are appropriate to its sensitivity, we do not guarantee or warrant the security of the information you share with us and we are not responsible for the theft, destruction, loss or inadvertent disclosure of your information or content. No system is 100% secure. We are in the process to implement Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of personal information.
While we continue to work hard to protect your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Transmitting personal information is done at your own risk.
Updating Account Information
You may correct, amend or update profile or account information that is inaccurate at any time by adjusting that information in your account settings.
EU Members’ Rights
If you are habitually located in the European Union, you have the right to access, rectify, download or erase your information, as well as the right to restrict and object to certain processing of your information.

Where we process your information based on our legitimate interests explained above, or in the public interest, you can object to this processing in certain circumstances. In such cases, we will cease processing your information unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing or where it is needed for legal reasons.
Where you have previously provided your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your information at any time. In certain cases, we may continue to process your information after you have withdrawn consent if we have a legal basis to do so or if your withdrawal of consent was limited to certain processing activities.
Should you wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local supervisory authority.
