You may withdraw your consent to receiving marketing communications from us at any time. However, withdrawing consent will result in your inability to use any features of the Service which require registration or membership.
Collection of Information: We aim to collect, use and disclose only such information as is required to enable us to manage your account, to provide the Service, to process payments, to maintain our customer/visitor lists, to respond to your inquiries or provide feedback, for identification and authentication purposes and for service improvement. We will maintain the confidentiality of any contact information you provide to us on signing up for our Services or contacting us with questions or for further information and we will use it only for the purposes for which we have collected it (subject to the exclusions and disclosures we have listed below), unless you agree that we may disclose it to other third parties.
Two types of information may be collected through the Service: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.
"Personal Information" is personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, e-mail address, credit card information, mobile phone number, profile picture, and gender. We also collect location data at the time of collection, we will clearly identify the information being collected and the purposes for which it will be used. We may collect Personal Information in respect of the Service through registration processes; communications with you; information downloads; service purchases; user support; and surveys.
Use of Information: We collect information for the following purposes:
Registration: In order to register for the Service you must provide certain Personal Information to us such as your full name and email address. We will use this information for verification purposes and to set up your account. Subject to the disclosures indicated below in “Service Profiles” in general, none of your account registration information will be shared with other Users. When an Asker requests a task to be completed and a Tasker agrees to complete the task, we will release information required to enable the Asker and Tasker to coordinate and get the task done. This information may include Users’ email addresses, telephone numbers, addresses and full names.
Listing Skills: If you post a task, we will ask you to provide information about the task including the type of task, number of hours and rate, task description, as well as your credit card and or your PayPal account information. We use this information (excluding your payment information) to show them to an Asker who is looking for a Tasker with your skills. Taskers will not be provided with any payment information you provide (see “Payments”, below).
Approval of a Task: Once a task is accepted by the Tasker, we will charge the Asker’s credit card for the full amount of the quote for completing the task. We will hold the full amount of the funds payable for such task in escrow pending completion of the task.
Once a Tasker has chosen to accept a task, the Tasker can get in contact with the Asker to agree on the scope of work, if there is any issue then either party can decline and inform our Customer Relations representative.
Verifications: We may use Personal Information submitted by Taskers to verify a Tasker’s credentials. This verification might include background checks. We may also phone Taskers to verify the information they have provided.
Service Profiles: If you are registered as a Tasker, then your profile (including the Tasker’s photo, qualifications, ratings and reviews) will be visible to Askers on a need basis to write or read reviews, see previous work history or any other relevant aspect TaskYourNeighbor may deem relevant within the scope of this website.
Payment Information: Askers must pay for the Services via valid credit card or PayPal. If you are paying by credit card you must submit your credit card information to our merchant account gateway provided and hosted by Stripe. All payment information is stored by our payment processors, and TaskYourNeighbordoes not hold, process or store any credit card or payment information.
Tasker Bank Accounts: If you are a Tasker, we require information about your bank account so that we can deposit your fees directly into your bank account or your PayPal account. We will not use your bank account or PayPal information for any purpose other than to pay you for the Tasker Services you provide and complete.
Marketing Communications: If you opt-in to receive marketing communications from us, we will keep you up to date on our products and services. You may withdraw your consent to receiving marketing communications from us at any time by following the opt-out instructions in each communication.
Location Data: When you register for the Service your location will automatically be picked up and suggested as the location for your registration although you will have the option to manually input something else. This location is used as the default for when you are requesting or responding to task requests to enable you to find and be found on the Service by other local Users. We track Asker’s locations to determine which Taskers are in your Area.
Statistics: We also collect statistics about use of the Service. This information will be kept confidential, however, aggregate statistics that do not personally identify an individual will be kept by us and such aggregate statistics may be made available to other members or third parties.
Partner Websites: We may also deliver targeted advertisements that may be relevant to you based on the information you have provided to us when you visit our partner websites.
From time to time we may employ third parties to help us improve our technology and the Service. These third parties may have limited access to databases of user information solely for the purpose of helping us to improve our technology and the Service and they will be subject to contractual restrictions prohibiting them from using the information about our members for any other purpose.
Important Exceptions: We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your consent if we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other Users, or anyone else (including the rights or property of anyone else) that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose Personal Information when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is required by and in accordance with the law.

We have implemented procedures designed to limit the dissemination of your Personal Information to only such designated staff as are reasonably necessary to carry out the stated purposes we have communicated to you.

In such circumstances we will provide reasons for the denial to you upon request. We will endeavor to deal with all requests for access and modifications in a timely manner. We will make every reasonable effort to keep your Personal Information accurate and up-to-date, and we will provide you with mechanisms to update, correct, delete or add to your Personal Information as appropriate.
