This Privacy Policy applies to the Personal Information we collect through the following means:

VideoWorkers will undertake all the necessary measures to protect your Personal Data, which include:

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, the terms used in this Privacy Policy should be interpreted in accordance with regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 (UK), the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and other applicable law regulations.

In the context of this Privacy Policy, references to the EU also include the United Kingdom (UK), Switzerland, and the European Economic Area (EEA) countries Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.

2. Collection of Information

When you use the Site or the Service, interact with VideoWorkers through online communications, sign up for our newsletter, or interact with a third-party website containing advertisements leading you to the Site, you may provide us with information about you.
The following sections outline the Personal Data we collect from Candidates and Companies/Agencies, along with the Personal Data we collect from all Users, irrespective of their classification as Candidates or Companies/Agencies (including website visitors who do not sign up for a VideoWorkers account).

2.1. Information We Collect from All Users

The information we collect about you as a User will vary based on the type of interaction you have with the Site and the specific Service we are providing to you. We only gather personal and non-personal information from you that is reasonably necessary to effectively fulfill the Service.
Personal Information means information that can identify you as a User. This may include information such as an identification number or various factors pertaining to your physical, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity. Non-Personal Information means information that does not permit us to specifically identify you.

VideoWorkers may collect either all or a portion of the following information about you, irrespective of whether you are a Candidate, a Company/Agency, or simply browsing the Site without holding a VideoWorkers account.

Please note that Personal Information excludes de-identified information or corporate data that relates to a Company/Agency rather than an individual, such as business name, business address, or business phone number. However, in the case of one-person companies, information that permits the identification of a natural person may be considered Personal Information. This is also applicable to personal data associated with individuals during professional activities, including, but not limited to, business email addresses containing the full name of an employee or employees’ business phone numbers.

2.1.1. Personal Information

;”>VideoWorkers may collect from Users the following Personal Information:

2.1.2. Non-Personal Information

We also collect, utilize, and share Non-Personal information (also known as “aggregated information”) which may include statistical data, demographic data, ZIP codes, or information about your use of the Service. Aggregated Information may be derived from your Personal Information, but it does not qualify as Personal Information because it does not disclose your identity.

2.1.3. Information Collected Automatically

Certain information including, but not limited to, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, device and browser type, information about the links you click, the pages you view, and the date and time of your visit, is collected automatically by us or third parties.

4. Retention of Your Personal Information

Unless you specifically request that we delete specific information or otherwise required by law, we will only keep your Personal Information for as long as it is required to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected.

In order to determine the appropriate retention periods, we consider a wide array of factors including, but not limited to, the purpose for which we retain your Personal Information, our legal obligations in relation to your Personal Information, and the nature and sensitivity of the Personal Information we hold about you.

For example, we retain your profile information and content for the duration of your account. Typically, we retain other personally identifiable data we collect about you for a period of up to 18 months.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we may anonymize your Personal Information under certain circumstances in order to remove any association with your identity. In such cases, we may utilize this anonymized information without prior notice to you.

If your Personal Information is no longer necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, we will securely delete or destroy it in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

In the event that we need to comply with legal requirements or for security reasons, we may keep certain Personal Information about you longer than our policies specify.

5.3. Disclosure of Non-Personal Information

6. Storage of Your Personal Information

VideoWorkers stores your Personal Information in computer systems or databases that may be under our control or managed by service providers on our behalf.

While the Service is maintained in Romania, we may store, process, and access your Personal Information in any country inside or outside of the EU where we have a subsidiary or where we have engaged service providers for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.
By using the Service and providing us with your Personal Information, you acknowledge and consent that your Personal Information will be exported and stored in Romania or any country inside or outside of the EU/EEA and used in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Consequently, your Personal Information may be subject to data protection laws that vary from the laws in your country of residence.

In cases where your Personal Information is transferred from Romania to entities outside the EU/EEA, we utilize specific contracts endorsed by the European Commission to ensure that Personal Information receives the same level of protection as it does within the EU.

7. Security of Your Personal Information

VideoWorkers has taken all the necessary measures to ensure that your Personal Information is secure.

We have implemented procedures to address any suspected breach of your Personal Information and protect it from loss, misuse, modification, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. These procedures include, but are not limited to, using security systems, firewalls, and passwords and conducting regular vulnerability assessments of our systems. For example, all payment transactions are handled by a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.

Additionally, access to your Personal Information is restricted to those who require it explicitly to provide you with the Service or for any other purposes permitted with your consent and by the applicable law. All those who have access to your Personal Information are subject to a contractual agreement of confidentiality and all of our staff members are trained in how to keep your information safe and secure.

Please bear in mind that while we make every effort to safeguard the Personal Information we collect from you, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

In the event of a data breach, VideoWorkers will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and, where appropriate, notify you and the relevant legal authority.
