You may be able to create, upload, publish, transmit, distribute, display, store, or share information, data, text, graphics, video, messages or other materials using the Services. Some of this data may be stored and maintained on our servers or those of partners with whom we contract. If you run into technical errors in the course of using the Services, we may request your permission to obtain a crash report along with certain logging information from your system documenting the error (“Diagnostic Information”). Such information may contain information regarding your operating system version, hardware, browser version (and .NET version information in case of Windows systems), and your email address, if provided.
During the Workera skill-based assessment testing process, we obtain express permission from you to utilize the video camera on the device you use to take the test. We only utilize the video camera during the test itself, and we use this video exclusively for the purpose of validating your test results.
We do not collect any information regarding your real-time geo-location while using the Services, though we do receive country-level and city-level information from Google Analytics tied to IP address. If, at some point in the future, we do seek to collect such information, we will request your permission before doing so.
3. Use of Information.
We use the information we collect in the following ways:
We use your Personal Information to manage your account, to provide the Services, to maintain our customer/visitor lists, to respond to your inquiries or provide feedback, for identification and authentication purposes, for service improvement, and to address issues such as malicious use of the Services. We will use information that you voluntarily provide to us through any online job applications to assess your candidacy for the jobs for which you have applied.

4. Disclosures & Transfers.
Generally, we will not provide your Personal Information to any third parties except as reasonably necessary in the performance of the Services or otherwise in order to operate our business. From time to time we may employ contractors to help us improve the product and Services, and to maintain or perform certain parts of the Services. Our website also runs on WordPress. These third parties may have limited access to databases of user information, including Personal Information, solely for the purpose of helping us to improve the product and Services, and they will be subject to contractual restrictions prohibiting them from using or disclosing the information about our members for any other purpose. Such agents or third parties do not have any rights to use Personal Information beyond what is necessary to assist us.
We may use your Personal Information without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as analyzing how the Service is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing the Services. We may also store Personal Information in locations outside our direct control (for instance, on servers, or databases co-located with hosting providers).
5. Important Exceptions.
We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your consent if we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other users of the Services, or anyone else (including the rights or property of anyone else) that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose Personal Information when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is required by and in accordance with the law.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We use commercially reasonable efforts to store and maintain your Personal Information in a secure environment. We also take technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps designed to protect Personal Information that you provide to us. We have implemented procedures designed to limit the dissemination of your Personal Information to only such designated staff as are reasonably necessary to carry out the stated purposes we have communicated to you.
You are also responsible for helping to protect the security of your Personal Information. For instance, never give out the credentials you use in connection with accessing the Services, so that other people will not have access to your Personal Information. Furthermore, you are responsible for maintaining the security of any personal computing device on which you utilize the Services.
We are not liable for disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized access or acts by third parties, or omissions or acts beyond our reasonable control.
