WORKERSPRING ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY 

Your privacy is important to us.  This Privacy Policy describes how Worker Apps, LLC (“W-APPS,” “we,” “our,” “us”) collects, uses and discloses Personal Information when you interact with our mobile application, WorkerSpring (the “App”).  As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means information that identifies or that could be used to identify you. 

The App provides a technology platform that allows non-profit community-based organizations (“Community-Based Organizations”) providing educational, economic development or other related programs to individuals in the community, to invite their members to join the App under their account, to help connect them to job opportunities (“Job Seeker”) from employers approved by the Community-Based Organization (“Employers”).  

W-APPS is a technology service provider whose App helps connect job seekers with job opportunities.  W-APPS does not itself provide job seekers, employers, or job opportunities. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that our customers collect, create, or provide to W-APPS when they use the App to search for candidates or post, apply for, and communicate about, job openings. This data is owned and controlled by Community-Based Organizations and Employers. If you have questions about the information practices of the Community-Based Organizations or Employers using the App for job placement purposes, please review their respective privacy policies or contact them directly.   

In addition, we do not control the actions of anyone with whom you may choose to share information in the course of searching for candidates, posting or applying for jobs on the App, and we cannot and do not guarantee that any information you share will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. You should therefore be cautious about the information you choose to share when searching for candidates, posting or applying for jobs on the App.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU AND HOW WE USE IT

The Personal Information we collect and how we use it depends on the context of your interactions with us.  As explained below, we collect Personal Information when you provide it directly to us and when we receive it from third parties.  We also collect certain information automatically when you interact with the App

W-APPS and third parties with whom we work may place cookies with the following functions on the computers of visitors to the App to allow the Website to deliver the service requested by the visitor; to remember repeat visitors; to improve the user experience of the Website; to allow the company to perform site or application analytics; and to serve and help tailor our marketing messages based on the visitor’s previous browsing activity.

Otherwise, most browsers will allow a visitor to choose which cookies can be placed on their computer and to delete or disable cookies. Please note that disabling cookies may prevent a visitor from using certain features on the App.

YOUR CHOICES

You can always choose whether or not to provide information to the App. However, if you choose not to disclose certain information, you may not be able to establish an account on the App, which may limit your access to certain functions of the App.

  • You may email us to make a request at privacy@workerspring.com.
