Terms Of Use

We care about your rights as a freelancer

Please read this privacy policy (the “Policy”) to understand how we use your personal information. If you do not agree with this Policy, your choice is not to use Sharehive.co (the “Site”). By accessing or using this Site, you agree to this Policy. This Policy may change. If there are any major changes to how your personal information is used, we will notify you.

To put it short - we care about your privacy

We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes without your explicit consent. We do not disclose it to others except as disclosed in this Policy or required to provide you with the services of the Site, meaning - to allow you to buy, sell, share the information you want to share on the Site; to contribute on the forum; pay for our membership; post reviews and so on.

We collect information that you provide us or voluntarily share with other users, and also some general technical information that is automatically gathered by our systems, such as IP address, browser information, and cookies to enable you to have a better user experience and a more personalized browsing experience. This is all normal, and something that almost all websites do.

We will not share information that you provide us in the process of the registration - including your contact information - except as described in this Policy.

Information that you choose to publish on the Site (photos, videos, text, music, reviews, deliveries) - is no longer private, just like any information you publish online.

Technical information that is gathered by our systems, or third party systems, automatically may be used for Site operation, optimization, analytics, content promotion and enhancement of user experience. We may use your information to contact you - to provide notices related to your activities or offer you promotions and general updates, but we will not let any other person, including sellers and buyers, contact you, other than through your user profile on the Site.

Your personal information may be stored in systems based around the world and may be processed by third party service providers acting on our behalf. These providers may be based in countries that do not provide an equivalent level of protection for privacy as that enjoyed in the country in which you live. In that case, we will provide for adequate safeguards to protect your personal information.

You can exercise your rights over your personal information. Just contact us at hello@sharehive.co. More details about the rights applicable to you are in the long version of the Policy.
