Notch LLC ("us", "we", or "our") operates notchteam.com ("Notch") otherwise the "Site" or “The Platform” This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information we receive from users of the Site.
Clients: users who request the help of experts on the Site.
This is information you actively give us while taking certain actions on our Site, such as creating an account, filling out your profile, and completing payment events. While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain pieces of personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information ("personal information" or “personal data”) may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, profile photo, and payment information. Through use of the Site, you may also provide us with data that is not personally identifiable (“non-identifying data”). This includes additional profile information, such as: your expertise, timezone, and language.
In addition to information provided by you, we also collect information when you use the Platform, including usage information and log data.
When you use the Site, we collect information about your interactions with the Platform, such as requests posted, session history, jobs, pages viewed, posts liked and followed, and payment history.
Log Data and Device Information
Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, and other statistics.
Cookies are files with small amounts of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer's hard drive. Like many sites, we use "cookies" to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.
If you link, connect, or log in to your Notch account with a third-party service (e.g. Google, LinkedIn, GitHub), the third-party service may send us information, such as: your email and profile information from that service. This information varies and is controlled by that service or, as authorized by you, via your privacy settings at that service.
We may disclose your personal information to third-party services who act as our service providers or advertising partners. For example, we may provide your email address to Sendgrid, our email and newsletter service provider, in order to send you notifications and other emails.
If you wish to update your account or profile information, you can do so from your Account Settings and Profile page (accessed from the dropdown menu at the top right of your dashboard.) When you delete your account from Account Settings, we remove all personal data we have on record, including your name, email, photo, social profiles, IP, payment information, and payout information. This means all account deletions are permanent. We may retain some personal data for a period of time, as required by law, or if there are ongoing payment disputes. For example, we retain tax documentation for talent due to legal obligations. Please note that you may not be able to delete your account if you have pending payments, pending payouts, ongoing jobs, or disputes.

We take the security of your personal information very seriously, but no method of transmission over the Internet or of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
