Our use of information collected through our service is limited to the purpose of providing the service for which you (“User”) have engaged GigSurf.

The specific information we collect through our service is dependent on how you use our service:

You may use GigSurf as a “Requestor”, which means we collect information such as that needed to promote gigs you have to GigSurfers, provide you with updates relating to those gigs and facilitate payment for work performed.

You may use GigSurf as a “GigSurfer”, which means we collect information such as that needed to onboard you, run a background check, notify you of suitable gigs, provide you with information and updates relating to gigs and facilitate payment for work performed.

By submitting or making available Anonymous Data or Personal Data through our mobile applications, website or Services, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and you expressly consent to the processing of your Anonymous Data and Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Data That We Collect

We collect Anonymous Data and Personal Data from you when you when you use our mobile applications, visit our site and when you send us information or communications:

“Anonymous Data” means data about you that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data.

“Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, phone number, zip code, location and e-mail address.

We collect Personal Data from you, such as first and last name, zip code, phone number, e-mail, company name, professional title, and password, when you use applications or services, our website, or post information in our support system. In addition, we (or our third-party credit card, payment processors and background check processors on our behalf) may collect Personal Data including your credit card number, bank account information and social security number when you use GigSurf, for the purpose of providing services that are an integral part of GigSurf, such as running background checks and facilitating payment for work completed. We also retain information on your behalf, such as the Personal Data described above and any correspondence. If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply, and any information that you submit to us. When you post in our public support forums, the information contained in your posting will be stored on our servers and other users will be able to see it.

To request removal of your personal information from our public forums, contact us at In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why. We also collect other types of Personal Data that you provide to us voluntarily, such as browser version, phone model and version, operating system and version, and other requested information if you contact us for support. We may also collect Personal Data at other points in our mobile applications or website that state that Personal Data is being collected.

We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a personalized experience. If you choose to disable Cookies, some functions of our Services may not work properly.

In order to notify you of suitable gigs, we use the location information provided by your phone through the GigSurf application. We may receive updates to your location even when the GigSurf application is running in the background. You are able to use your phone settings to prevent GigSurf from obtaining your location. However, this will mean that you will be unable to receive notifications from GigSurf of suitable gigs.

We use your Personal Data in the following ways: to identify you as a user in our system, for the creation and security of your account, to provide administration of our Services, to send you an e-mail to verify ownership of the e-mail address provided by you when your account was created, to perform a background check, to send you administrative e-mail notifications, to send you alerts you have configured, to notify you of suitable gigs, to send promotional communications, to facilitate payment for work performed and to charge you for work performed.

We may create Anonymous Data records from Personal Data by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you.

We reserve the right to use Anonymous Data for other purposes and to disclose Anonymous Data to third parties at our discretion.
