  • Information that you give us when you sign up for Worker Connect.  For example, when you download Worker Connect, you must provide us with your nationality and the language(s) you speak. We will ask you for information about projects you are working on and the name of your employer, in order to report issues and view detailed content related to your project(s); this information is optional (collectively this is “Personal Information”). 

 

Automatically Collected Information – We may collect certain information when you use Worker Connect.  This information includes:

  • Device information. We collect device-specific information (such as operating system version, and unique device identifiers). This information is used by us, internally, only.

  • Unique notification address.  When you download Worker Connect we will register certain information about your installation (for example, a notification address) which may be sent to our technology partner, when you install or uninstall Work Connect; this information is collected and sent to our technology partner for the sole purpose of sending out targeted push notifications.

  • Sensitive Device Features.  Currently, Worker Connect may access the following two features: (i) a camera, to give you the option to scan a QR barcode instead of manually typing a project code; and/or (ii) your external file storage, to give you the options of downloading and viewing PDF documents related to relevant worker welfare information.
