This Notice describes how Uber Works Inc. (“UWI”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Uber Technologies Inc., and its subsidiaries and affiliates collect and use personal data in connection with the Uber Works mobile apps and website(s) (collectively, the "Services"). Through the Services, Uber Works provides a marketplace through which those who submit applications to fill shifts (“Workers”) are connected to those who post Shifts (“Businesses”). For purposes of this marketplace, Workers are employed by third parties (“Employers of Record”) and are not employed by either UWI, Uber, or a Business.
This Notice applies to UWI’s processing of personal data in connection with the use of the Services by Workers, Businesses, or other individuals using the Services (“Users”). This Notice does not apply to any other processing of personal data by UWI, or processing of personal data by Employers of Record. The processing of personal data by Employers of Record is governed separately by the respective Employers of Record privacy notices.
Uber Works Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Uber Technologies Inc. (1455 Market Street, San Francisco, CA, 94103, USA), is the data controller for the personal data collected in connection with the use of these Services.
We collect information provided directly by our Users, including when they:
This information may include name, email, birthdate, Social Security Number, driver’s license, phone number, postal address, profile picture, position or occupation, information about training or qualifications, shift preferences, ratings given to a Worker or shift, and other information Users may choose to provide.
We also collect documents or information from Workers in order to facilitate their employment with an Employer of Record or shifts with a Business, including:
We collect personal data when Users use the Services, including:
Most mobile device platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without the device owner’s permission, and these platforms have different methods for how that permission can be obtained. iOS devices notify Users the first time the UWI app requests permission to access certain types of data and gives Users the option to grant or refuse permission. Android devices notify Users of the permissions that the UWI app seeks before their first use of the app, and use of the app constitutes a grant of such permission.
We may also receive information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the Services. For example:
Uber’s purposes for using the data it collects include to:
Some of UWI’s products, services, and features require that we share information with Businesses or other Users. We may also share information with our affiliates, subsidiaries, and partners, for legal reasons or in connection with claims or disputes. UWI may share the information we collect:
With other users: This includes sharing information with other Businesses, Employers of Record, or with third parties who require, request, or utilize such information in connection with shifts arranged through UWI. For instance, we may share a Worker’s name, rating, acceptance of a shift, and certain contact information (depending on their location and applicable laws) with Businesses who require, request, or utilize such information in order to determine whether the Worker meets the requirements for a shift.
At the user’s request: This includes sharing information with UWI business partners. For example, if a User requests a service through a partnership or promotional offering made by a third party, UWI may share certain information with those third parties. This may include, for example, other services, platforms, apps, or websites that integrate with our APIs; those with an API or service with which we integrate; or other UWI business partners and their Users in connection with promotions, contests, or specialized services.
With the general public: Questions or comments from Users submitted through public forums such as UWI blog posts and UWI social media pages may be viewable by the public, including any personal information included in the questions or comments submitted by a User.
With UWI subsidiaries and affiliates: We share information with our subsidiaries and affiliates to help us provide our Services or conduct information processing on our behalf. For example, UWI processes and stores information in the United States on behalf of some of its international subsidiaries and affiliates.
With UWI service providers and business partners: UWI provides information to vendors, consultants, marketing partners, research firms, and other service providers or business partners. These include:
With consent: UWI may share a User’s information other than as described in this notice if we notify the User and they consent to the sharing.
Users may correct their account information at any time by logging in to their online or in-app account.
We request permission for UWI collection of location information from Users’ devices (whether their own device or otherwise) per the permission system used by their mobile operating system. If a User permits the collection of this information, they can later disable it by changing the location settings on their mobile device. However, they will not be able to use the UWI Services if they disable collection of location information.
We may change this Notice from time to time. The continued use of the Services after such change constitutes consent to the changes. We encourage our Users to periodically review this Notice for the latest information on our privacy practices.
