As part of the commitment to preserve and protect your Personal Information, Ubii adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles developed by the United States Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Commission and the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner of Switzerland (the "Safe Harbor Program") with respect to personal information within the scope of this Statement, pursuant to the European Commission’s personal data directive (the "EU Personal Data Directive") and the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection. The Company complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland.
We collect any and all information that you voluntarily share with us through the Ubii Platform. If you are using the Ubii Platform to request professional services, you may give us :
If you participate on the Ubii Platform as a service professional, you may give us:
More about payment card information:
You may, at your choice, complete surveys on the Ubii Platform about, for example, your level of satisfaction with the Ubii Platform, your engagement with the Ubii Platform, and your awareness of Ubii Platform features. In some cases, we may link the information you provide in the survey with Personal Information in your Ubii account, such as your name or email address. When linked to Personal Information, your survey information becomes Personal Information too.
We collect information through technology to enhance our ability to serve you. When you access and use the Ubii Platform, Ubii and, in some cases, our third-party service providers, we collect information about how you interact with the Ubii Platform. Below is a description of a few of the methods we use to collect information through technology: When you visit the Ubii Platform, we collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is often associated with the portal you used to enter the Internet, like your Internet service provider (ISP), company, association, or university. While an IP address may reveal your ISP or geographic area, we cannot determine your identity solely based upon your IP address. However, we may link the last IP address you used to access the Ubii Platform to Personal Information you provide us. We may also collect a unique identifier for your computer, mobile device, or other device used to access the Ubii Platform (“Device Identifier”). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to the device you used to access the Ubii Platform. We may link the Device Identifier to other information about your visit, such as what pages you viewed, and to Personal Information you provide us, such as your name.
Yes. For more information about cookies, please visit www.ubii.com/cookies
We may include small graphic images or other web programming code, called web beacons (also known as “pixel tags”, “web bugs” or “clear GIFs”), in our web and mobile pages and messages. The web beacons are minute graphics with a unique identifier. They are used to track the online movements of Web service seekers. In contrast to cookies, which are stored in a service seekers computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Web beacons help us better manage content on the Ubii Platform by informing us what content is effective, monitoring how service seekers navigate the Ubii Platform, counting service seekers of the Ubii Platform, and counting how many e-mails sent by us were actually opened.
Your ‘Do Not Track’ Browser Setting
We do not support the Do Not Track (DNT) browser setting. DNT is a preference you can set in your browser’s settings to let the websites you visit know that you do not want the websites collecting your Personal Information.
We do track your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. For example, we use web beacons to help us determine what links or advertisers brought you to our Site. We also use third-party service providers to display advertisements to you on other websites based on your activities while on the Ubii Platform.
When you use the App, the App may automatically collect and store some or all of the following information from your mobile device (“Mobile Device Information”), including, but not limited to :
If you are a service professional using Ubii’s mobile application for service professionals (the “Pro Portal”), we may collect your geographic location by using Global Positioning System (GPS) information sent to us from the Pro Portal. For more information on when this information is collected, how we use it, and with whom it is shared, services professionals should refer to the Service Professional Agreement available on the service professional portal.
We only collect location information about service professionals who have been accepted to participate on the Ubii Platform and not about service Customers or about service professionals applying to participate in the Ubii Platform.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about the Ubii Platform, we may collect your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Ubii Platform. We store this information only to send this one-time email and to track the success of our referral program. We do not use this information for any other marketing purpose unless we obtain consent from that person or we explicitly say otherwise. Please be aware that when you refer a friend, your e-mail address may be included in the message sent to your friend.
If you are using the Ubii Platform to request professional services, you may provide us ratings and reviews of the service professionals you engage through the Ubii Platform.
We may supplement the information we collect about you through the Ubii Platform with records received from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you information that we believe may be of interest to you. For example, websites on which we place advertisements, such as Google, may tell us which ads about Ubii you clicked. This is often called “conversion tracking.”
In addition, when third parties such as Checkr or others conduct background checks on service professionals, those third parties share the results of the background check with Ubii.
If you login to the Ubii Platform through a social networking site, such as Facebook, we may collect your Facebook authentication token and account identification number and use that information to provide you with access to your account on the Ubii Platform.
If you call or text (SMS) message a service professional or service Customer using the telephone number provided by Ubii, Ubii uses Twilio or other partners, from time to time, to mask your telephone number. During this process, Ubii and Twilio (or other partners) receive in real time and store call data, including the date and time of the call or text (SMS) message, the parties’ phone numbers, and the content of the text (SMS) messages.
If you send a message to a service professional or service Customer in the App, Ubii uses Layer to process the communications. During this process, Ubii and Layer receive in real time and store message data, including the date and time of the message, and the content of the messages.
If you are using the Ubii Platform as a service professional, we may receive information about you in the form of ratings and reviews from requestors who engaged your professional services through the Ubii Platform.
The Ubii Platform includes links from the Ubii Platform to sites or applications operated by third parties (“Third-Party Sites”) and plug-ins (such as Twitter buttons) from Third-Party Sites.
For example, service professionals may be directed to a Third Party Site, such as Checkr.com, Onfido.com, SterlingTalentSolutions.com, or Hirease.com, so that the Third Party Site can conduct a background check. The Third Party Site may ask the service professional for identifying information to conduct the background check.
Some Third-Party Sites link to Ubii and share information with Ubii. For example, in some cases, you can book services through the Ubii Platform with one of our booking partners. In that case, you might provide the booking information, such as your name, telephone number, email address, and booking address, to the booking partner. The booking partner might then share the necessary booking information with us.
We use the information we collect to serve our customers, consider applicants, market and promote our connection services, and improve your experience at the Ubii Platform. Some examples include:
By using the Ubii platform, you expressly consent and agree to accept and receive communications from us, including via e-mail, text message, calls, and push notifications to the cellular telephone number or other means of communication you provided to us.
