Privacy Policy

At CrowdGig we provide an online platform that connects organizations and a global talent pool. Our platform enables organizations to get help from talented participants on a project-by-project basis and enables individual participants the opportunity to offer their talents on projects on a voluntary basis.

This Privacy Notice applies to personal information CrowdGig (“we,” “us,” and “our”) may collect and process. This personal information pertains to non-registered individuals visiting our CrowdGig website (“Website Users”) as well as individuals that have registered for a profile and/or completed jobs listed on this site (“Participants”). This Privacy Notice explains the kinds of information we may collect, how we intend to use and share that information, and the rights you may have related to these processing activities. When Participants provide services and information to our customers sponsoring a project-based job on our platform (our “Business Customers”), Participants may be informed that our Business Customer’s privacy policy governs use of their information for a particular job. In those cases, the Business Customer’s privacy policy will govern the Business Customer’s use of Participant’s information.

Please note that this information is only collected from Participants who have chosen to participate in a specific project requesting this type of information.

    collect “biometric information,” the content Participants choose to upload could include photographs, videos, audio recordings and other information about their physiological attributes, which may qualify as such under current or future biometric privacy laws applicable in your jurisdiction.
