You can choose not to provide certain information; however, as a result you might not be able to participate in all Services offered through the Platform. We use the information that you provide for ensuring that you receive information specific to you, responding to your requests, customizing the Platform for you, improving our Platform, and communicating with you.

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. We may also automatically collect certain information when you provide information to the Platform, such as your location/GPS coordinates (if you enable this feature), a device identifier (but not the UDID), MAC address, and wireless service provider. You can enable or disable location services when you use the App at anytime, through your mobile device settings. However, if you disable location services, you might not be able to participate in any or all tasks provided in the App. This location information is not treated as personal information unless we combine it with or link it to any of the personally identifiable information mentioned above.

We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be accessed every time you use the Platform.

 

You have the right to choose whether or not to accept Cookies. However, certain Services are only available through the use of Cookies, so if you choose to disable or decline Cookies, your use of certain Services may be limited or not possible. Most web browsers are set to accept Cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser Cookies. To do so, please follow the instructions provided by your browser which are usually located within the "Help" or “Preferences” menu.

3. Does Field Agent Share the Personal Information It Receives?

Personal information about our users is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. Except as set out in this Privacy Policy or in Section 6 of the Agent Participation Agreement, Field Agent does not disclose or sell your personal information to any third parties.

Users:

As a User, we may share certain information in order to facilitate the relationship outlined in the Agent Participation Agreement, the Terms of Service and any agreement between Field Agent and its Clients. We may also share certain information with third-party partners for the purpose of improving or expanding our Platform and/or the Services provided or offered through the use of our Platform, as described in additional detail in Section 6 of the Agent Participation Agreement.

Agents:

We employ third-party companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include analyzing data, processing payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Screening:

As the Services offered through our Platform continue to expand, Client may require that certain Services only be made available to Agents who meet certain specifications. We may use your information to determine your eligibility for such Services and to customize your interactions with the Platform accordingly.  

Promotional Offers:

We may also send offers to selected groups of Users on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your personal information. If you do not want to receive such offers, we will give you the opportunity to unsubscribe to them.

Business Transfers:

As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy additional services or business units. In such transactions, User information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the User notifies us otherwise). Also, in the event that Field Agent or substantially all of its assets are acquired, User information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of Field Agent and Others:

We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Agent Participation Agreement, Terms of Service, agreements with Clients and other similar agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Field Agent, our Users, or others. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from Users for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice, the Agent Participation Agreement and Terms of Service will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, but you should check our Site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account.
