Version 1
Effective Date: December 2, 2019
Last Updated Date: December 2, 2019

Unit of Work, Inc. (“Unit of Work” or “we” or “us”) is committed to protecting your privacy. We have prepared this Privacy Policy to describe to you our practices regarding the Personal Data (as defined below) we collect from users of our website, located at https://unitworkers.com, our Platform, our Application, and/or our Services, or collectively, our “System”. Any terms not defined herein shall have the meaning given to them in the associated Terms of Use https://unitworkers.com/terms.

User Consent

By submitting Personal Data through our System, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and you expressly consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Types of Data We Collect

“Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data as described below. “Labor Communications” means response surveys, questions to your coworkers, and other communications that you submit through the System for you and your coworkers to evaluate and improve your workplace, and in furtherance of labor organizing activities. Personal Data, Anonymous Data, and Labor Communications are collectively “Your Data.” A “Unit” means a group of users who share surveys, questions, responses, and other information with one another as part of an attempt to organize labor in those users’ workplace.

Information You Provide to Us.

·     We may collect Personal Data from you, such as your first and last name, gender, e-mail and mailing addresses, professional title, company name, and password when you create an account to log in to our network (“Account”).

·     We may collect Labor Communications from you when you reply to surveys, create questions of your own, or post other communications to your coworkers.

·     If you use our Services on your mobile device, including through our Application(s), we may collect your phone number and the unique device id number.

·     If you tell us where you are (e.g., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may store and use that information to provide you with location-based information. If you want to deactivate this feature, you can deactivate GPS on your mobile device.

·     Our Site may let you store preferences like how your content is displayed, your location, and other preferences. We may associate these choices with your ID, browser or the mobile device, and you can edit these preferences at any time.

·     When connecting to our Services via a service provider that uniquely identifies your mobile device, we may receive this identification and use it to offer extended services and/or functionality.

·     Certain Services that we may offer, such as two-factor authentication, may require our collection of your phone number. We may associate that phone number to your mobile device identification information.

·     We retain information on your behalf, such as files and messages that you store using your Account.

Information Collected via Technology.

·     Information Collected by Our Servers. To make our System more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.

·     Log Files.  As is true of most websites, we may gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We may use this information to analyze trends, administer the System, track users’ movements around the System, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you use the System again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve information appropriate to your patterns of use. Except as noted in this Privacy Policy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to Personal Data.

·     Cookies. Like many online services, we may use Cookies (as defined below) to collect information. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our System. This type of information may be collected to make the System more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your specific profile.

·     Pixel Tags. In addition, we may use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags may also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ Personal Data.

·     How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals. We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that might enable Users to opt out of tracking on our site.

·     Mobile Services. We may also collect non-personal information from your mobile device if you have downloaded our Application(s). This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include your geographic location, how you use the Application(s), and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event our Application(s) crash on your mobile device, we will receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our Application(s). This information is sent to us as aggregated information and is not traceable to any individual and cannot be used to identify an individual.

·     Analytics Services and Interest-Based Advertising.  In addition to the tracking technologies we place, other companies may set their own cookies or similar tools when you use the System. This includes third party analytics services, including but not limited to Google Analytics (“Analytics Services”), that we may engage to help analyze how users use the System, as well as third parties that deliver content or offers. We may receive reports based on these parties’ use of these tools on an individual or aggregate basis. We use the information we get from Analytics Services only to improve our System. The information generated by the Cookies or other technologies about your use of our System (the “Analytics Information”) is transmitted to the Analytics Services. The Analytics Services use Analytics Information to compile reports on user activity. The Analytics Services may also transfer information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process Analytics Information on their behalf. Each Analytics Services’ ability to use and share Analytics Information is restricted by such Analytics Services’ Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. By using our Site and Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by Analytics Services in the manner and for the purposes set out above. For a full list of Analytics Services, please contact us at mydata@unitworkers.com. We may also partner with ad companies to support our marketing efforts, including by serving you ads better tailored to your likely interests. If you don’t want to take advantage of these services, you may be able to opt-out by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/ or http://networkadvertising.org/choices/ , or if you are located in the EU, http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/.

Information Collected from Third Party Companies. We may receive Personal and/or Anonymous Data about you from companies that provide our Services by way of a co-branded or private-labeled website or companies that offer their products and/or services on our Site. These third party companies may supply us with Personal Data. We may add this information to the information we have already collected from you via our Site in order to improve the Services we provide.

Location Information. If you have enabled location services on your phone, we collect your location information to make a map available to the recipients of your messages showing your location. If you do not want this information collected by us, you can disable location services on your phone.
