Last updated: May 24th, 2018

At OnFrontiers, your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) applies to all users of the OnFrontiers website, or services or utilities made available through the website (the “Services”). It describes how we collect data from you, including information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify you. (We call that kind of information “Personal Information”.) We also use this Privacy Policy to let you know what we do with the data we collect from and about you, and your rights related to that data.

When we say “you” or “your”, we mean everyone who uses our Services, whether you are just visiting our website, or have signed up as an Expert or a Client.

1.1       By registering to use OnFrontiers Services or by agreeing to the terms of the Client Services Agreement, you agree to be legally bound by the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully and, if you do not agree to any of the terms, do not proceed with registration or use the Services.

1.2       We may change this Privacy Policy in the future, for example, to stay up to date with changing data protection laws. If we do change the policy, we will do our best to contact you to let you know, but please also check back on the OnFrontiers website from time to time for updates. If you do not agree with any change in terms, you must immediately discontinue use of the Services and promptly notify us by emailing hello@onfrontiers.com.

1.3       By accessing or using any part of the Services, you consent to OnFrontiers processing your Personal Data for the purpose of providing you the Services and acknowledge that such processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or contracts between us.

  1. What Information Does OnFrontiers Collect From or About You and How Is That Information Collected?

2.1       OnFrontiers collects Personal Information about you when you voluntarily provide it to us. When you register to use the Services, you create a User profile. We collect and store your name, email address, phone number, and the password that you create at that time. If you register as a Client, or book a Consultation on behalf of a business or organization, we may also collect and store your business’ or organization’s name, address, phone number, and such other details about your business or organization as you may provide us. If you register as an Expert, we collect information regarding your employment history and professional expertise and experience. We also collect and store additional information relevant to providing to the Services, such as information related to your interests, professional experience, settings for communication, billing location, and so on, as well as a photo. We also collect and store any changes or updates to information about you, of which you may notify us from time to time.

2.2       OnFrontiers may collect other information from you related to your use our Services. For example, we may collect (i) any information that you provide OnFrontiers in the process of searching OnFrontiers Website, creating projects and interacting with Experts, (ii) information that you provide an Expert with whom you communicate, as well as (iii) the content of your Consultation sessions and message exchanges, which may be recorded and preserved by OnFrontiers for quality control purposes and for possible use in transcription or other services, including without limitation delivery of recordings and transcriptions by OnFrontiers  to Client for Client’s internal use.

2.3       OnFrontiers may also collect certain information about you automatically. In particular, the OnFrontiers website uses “cookies” and other technology to collect information about your usage of the Services. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent by OnFrontiers to your Internet browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive, and that delivers information to us about your activity on OnFrontiers website. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a setting that you may select in most web browsers that allows you to decline the use of cookies. Cookies are used to remember passwords and user preferences, and help us better understand how you use the Services, so that we can continue to improve them.

2.4       OnFrontiers may also use device identifiers, meta data or other data collection techniques to collect data about your use of the Services. Collection of usage data, such as traffic and usage trends, allows us to understand how the Service is commonly used and improve the Service to better serve users. We combine this data with that of other users of the Services, so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify you individually.

  1. How Does OnFrontiers Use Information That We Collect From or About You?
