Socialance is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any other web sites to which the site links or which link to the site. By clicking on a link, logo or other item, please note that you may no longer be on Socialance.com, any of its subdomains or web properties.

Information We Gather During Registration
If you register to buy or sell Services using Socialance, we collect and store information that specifically identifies you or your account ("Personally Identifiable Information"). At this time, the most information you would be required to submit is information about your skills, abilities to perform service work, your first name, last name, password, city, country, timezone and email address. We may, in the future, include other optional requests for information from you, to help us to tailor the site for you and deliver personalized information to you.
Online Surveys and Contests
Periodically, Socialance may conduct online User surveys to collect information about our Users, their preferences and work habits. These surveys are optional and if you choose to respond, your responses will be kept anonymous. Similarly, we may offer contests to qualifying Users in which we ask for contact and demographic information such as name, email address and mailing address. None of this information is shared with third parties, except in summary form, if at all. The demographic information that Socialance collects in the registration process and through online surveys is used to help us improve the Socialance Marketplace to meet the needs and preferences of our Users. This may include targeting advertising or other information to you about our offerings. Information we gather through a contest may also be disclosed to third parties as necessary for prize fulfillment and other aspects of any contest or similar offering.
Socialance Payment System
Socialance uses a third-party payment system (the "Payment System") that allows Employers to pay with a credit or debit card, bank balance or other funds. If you make use of this service, Socialance will not collect any financial details such as credit card numbers, cvv codes or balances. We will use this service to bill you any fees and/or to perform the billing operation on behalf of the Freelancer.
Automatically Gathered Information
As part of registration, you may set up your profile describing your work experience, rates and qualifications, as a Freelancer, or information about you or your company, as an Employer. Some of the information requested in the registration is mandatory. We strongly encourage you to complete your profile as much as possible as this may directly affect your likelihood of finding work opportunities or, as an Employer, outstanding Freelancer candidates.
Use of Registration Information
We use Personally Identifiable Information for our own internal purposes including contacting you via email to inform you about updates to Socialance and providing you with information relating to e-commerce transactions that you conduct on the site. We reserve the right to disclose your information as required by law. We do not rent or sell our Users' Personally Identifiable Information to third parties. We do, however, provide you with the opportunity to receive communications via email.
Use of General Data
Socialance reserves the right to use the general data it obtains from Users' use of the system, including all statistical information. You acknowledge that such data belongs to Socialance and that Socialance shall have the right to use such data as it determines in its sole discretion.
Socialance may send you email communications including information that we may think may be of interest to you. We do not send any of your Personally Identifiable Information to our advertisers. You may see a cookie from a third-party banner server and this cookie comes from the third-party banner server, not Socialance. Again, we do not pass along any Personally Identifiable Information to this party.
Socialance uses an outside credit card processing company to bill Employers for Freelancer Services. Socialance may also engage other third party intermediaries in order to provide our users with additional offerings and services. Socialance makes no representations on these third parties and their use of personal identifiable information. Please refer to the third party's website and terms of service for their specific privacy policies.
Socialance constantly seeks to improve the quality of and the User experience on the Socialance Marketplace. We value your input and encourage you to help us expand and make improvements to the Socialance Marketplace by providing us with any thoughts or comments you might have regarding the site. When sending us comments we may receive your email address or User ID and the country in which you are located. If you provide this information, we will only use it to acknowledge or respond to your comments. Submitting comments via an email will not cause you to receive any secondary or promotional material, unless specifically requested by you. In certain circumstances, we may ask for your permission to post your comments in marketing or promotional materials.
We will use commercially reasonable methods to keep Personally Identifiable Information securely in our files and systems. Our Payment is managed by a third party, which operates using secure Internet connections, including SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption, to help protect your financial data. Please note that with current technology, we cannot guarantee the security of your data as it travels over the Internet.
Terminating Your Membership
We save your Personally Identifiable Information until your membership with us is terminated. To terminate membership, you need to contact us indicating your request. If you terminate your membership, your Personally Identifiable Information cannot be recovered and you may continue to receive email communications for a short period of time until we have updated all of our databases. After termination of your membership, your Personally Identifiable Information may remain on our archived database and records for a reasonable time as residual information. We will not use this residual information. Notwithstanding the above, we will maintain information on Users who have been removed for violating any of our agreements.
Updating and Correcting Information
Most User Information is User updatable through the various pages available at the Socialance website. If you cannot update the information yourself, please contact us to notify us of any changes or errors related to any of your information that we have on file. Upon receipt of such requests, we will update our files within 30 days.
