PETTYGIGS PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated: November 20, 2020

Welcome to PettyGigs, a platform connecting requestors (“Gig Posters”) and performers (“Giggers”) of common tasks and errands (“Gigs”). A Gig Poster posts a Gig and gets matched with a Gigger who performs the Gig.  

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains the privacy practices of PettyGigs mobile applications, the www.pettygigs.com website, and other associated PettyGigs services (the “Services”). This Privacy Policy also governs your relationship with PettyGigs Inc., a North Carolina corporation (“PettyGigs,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). We refer to users of the PettyGigs Services as “User,” “Users,” “Gig Posters,” “Giggers,” “you,” or “your,” as appropriate. Please read this Privacy Policy in full before using the Services. By using our Services, you are consenting to our use of your data as explained in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not access or use any of the Services. 

PettyGigs will update this Privacy Policy over time, and the “Last Updated” date at the top of the Privacy Policy will list the last date we updated this Privacy Policy. In the event we make minor changes that do not materially affect your rights, we will post the updated Privacy Policy on the website. If we make a change that materially affects your rights, we will notify you by email, through the PettyGigs Services, or by requiring you to review and accept updated Terms before continuing to use the Services.

We collect information such as your name, date of birth, email address,  username, password as well as other information you directly give us on our Services as part of creating a Gig Poster or Gigger profile (“Account”) during the onboarding process or your responses to surveys. 

For Giggers, we also collect information necessary to conduct a background check, which is required to access Gigs. If, as a Gigger, you want to be considered for Gigs requiring a vehicle, you will also have to upload a copy of your driver’s license. If a Gigger wants their profile to display that a Gigger holds a license or certification, then a copy of such license or certification must also be uploaded to the PettyGigs platform. Giggers aged 14 to 17, we also have you provide contact information for a parent or guardian in order to obtain the necessary consent.
