Our Commitment to Privacy

WorkRails, Inc.

The Site is also supported by Business Partners, which includes Software providers, Software distributors, or other potential business partners of our service. Clients, Consultants and Business Partners are all deemed “Participants” in our service.

WorkRails.com values its customers and is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to our Site (“users,” “you,” or “your”). This Privacy Policy describes how the Site collects, uses, stores and discloses your Personally Identifiable Information (“Personal Information”). This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect online, not offline.

Personal Information

Personal Information is information about you that you provide to us that is personally identifying, such as your name, email address, social security or tax ID number, and phone number and that is not otherwise publicly available. The legal definition of Personal Information depends on your physical location and may include other types of information. Only the legal definition that applies to your physical location will apply to you under this Privacy Policy.

We retain Personal Information we collect for as long as you continue to be a Participant, to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

We use this information to assess your qualifications for open positions and to contact you for an interview if we choose to do so.

Public Forums

In the future, the Site may include a feature that enables Consultants and Clients to post job history, participate in chats with a potential match, and submit ratings on Consultants and Clients. This feature will be publicly available and the information you post or upload will be viewed by others. We are not responsible for the Personal Information or other information you choose to post in public forums.

Payment Information

We use a third party payment vendor, Stripe.com to process payments to and from Consultants, Partners and Clients and to comply with PCI regulations. Stripe will collect your Personal Information and other related information in order to process the transaction. As Stripe.com is a third party vendor, the collection of your information for payment purposes is covered by Stripe.com’s Privacy Policy and not by our Privacy Policy. We will have access to the information collected by Stripe.com for the purposes of managing your account, although the information we receive may be encrypted and we will not retain or store any of the data.

Do We Use Cookies or other Technologies?

When you visit the Site, we use session “cookies” — a piece of information stored on your computer — to allow us to uniquely identify your browser while you are browsing the Site. Users who disable their web browsers’ ability to accept cookies will be able to browse the Site but may not have full functionality.

The Site uses Google Analytics. For more information about Google analytic cookies, please see Google’s help pages and privacy policy:

  • Google’s Privacy Policy
  • Google Analytics Help pages

We may also use other analytics providers to collect non-personal information to help us improve our Site and services and your user experience.

Log files, IP addresses and information about your computer

Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Site we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, email patterns, as well as the name of your ISP. This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us improve the Services.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

We will take reasonable precautions to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Do We Disclose Personal Information to Third Parties?

We disclose Consultant information to our Clients and Client information to Consultants in order to match and connect Consultants and Clients.

We disclose our users’ Personal Information to trusted third parties such as our Business Partners that enable us to operate the Site and conduct our business. We may disclose Personal Information to third party vendors that check Consultant credentials and conduct background checks for the purposes of verifying Consultant credentials and performing a background check.

We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our Site policies and terms, detect or prevent fraud, security or technical issues, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and spam/malware prevention. Because our servers that store your information are located in the U.S.A., your information may be available to U.S. government entities or agencies under a lawful court order or other legal process in the U.S.

We may provide non-personally identifiable visitor information to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

If our assets are merged with or purchased by a third party, your Personal Information will be transferred to that third party.

Third Party Sites and Links

Our Site may contain links to other websites that are independent, are not owned or operated by us, are not covered by this Privacy Policy and which may incorporate third party information. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you, which will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy and terms of service, which may differ from ours. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of other websites, even if they are linked to our Site.

Social Media Features

Our Site includes features from social media websites such as LinkedIn and Google+ that run on our Site. Please note that our Site is not sponsored or endorsed by LinkedIn or Google+, which are trademarked and owned by third parties and not by us. These features may collect your IP address or other Personal Information, which page you are visiting on our Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media websites also disclose information to us, in accordance with their privacy policies, when you log in to our Site through social media. For example, we collect your name, email address, description and image. By connecting to our Site through social media you are authorizing us to collect, store, use and disclose your information as described in our Privacy Policy. The social media website’s collection, use, storage and disclosure of your Personal Information is not covered by our Privacy Policy.

California Do Not Track Disclosures/Your California Privacy Rights

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the "Shine The Light" law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the Personal Information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of Personal Information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request to support@workrails.com. In addition, we currently do not honor Do Not Track signals.
