The company ('we') collect certain personal information about anonymous visitors and registered users of our platform.

The most common types of information we collect include things like: user's login, names, postal address, email address, IP addresses, other contact details, bank & payment details, and internal support messenger threads. We will also collect personal information from CVs and cover letters sent by candidates , notes taken during job interviews, collaborators's photos.

How we collect personal information

We collect personal information directly when you provide it to us, like for example when, as a registered Affiliate user, we need to identify you as owner of a website you want to apply to in our platform, when this cannot be done automatically.

We collect your IP's device when, as an anonymous web user, you click on a advertisr's banner hosted by our platform or a textual tracking link hosted by our platform.

We collect your personal information when you provide it to us when you complete the registration form, when you enter your bank details once authenticated in your user account, when you send messages to an Affiliate Manager via our internal messenger feature or directly when you send us  a communication via email or Skype.

How we use personal information

We will use your personal information where this is necessary for purposes which are in our, or third parties, legitimate interests. These interests include:

  1. Operating the platform.
  2. Providing you with services described on the Terms & Conditions
  3. Verifying your identity when you sign up first and then sign in to our platform, with two typical examples:
    1. To identify a registered Affiliate user as the valid owner of the web site he/she wants to insert advertising material in, delivered by our platform.
    2. To be able to process the payment of Affiliates' commissions.
  4. Responding to your queries submitted via an internal messenger or other external communication supports..

  7. Monitoring activity on the platform to identify potential fraudulent activity and to ensure compliance with the Terms & Conditions.
  8. Processing your job application.

Finally we will use your personal information for purposes which are required by law, like the retention of payment invoices for accounting tracking and tax purposes, responding to requests by government, a court of law, or law enforcement authorities conducting an investigation.
