What Information We Collect.
Gig Economy Platform Account Information. To the extent that you enable or otherwise consent to features that permit this type of information collection, Para will have access to information about you that is stored by the various gig economy companies with whom - or for whom - you work or provided services, e.g. DoorDash or UberEats. This could include, but is not limited to, information about the number of trips you have taken, your earnings information, your vehicle information (make, model, license), acceptance rate, individual trip data, your rating, your preferences, your contact information, your past and current location. Note that our obtaining of this information is not required in order for you to have an account with Para, though it does enable certain features which will not otherwise work.
Information You Voluntarily Provide. You may also provide certain information to us when you use the Services. For instance, you may choose to manually provide information about yourself, including, but not limited to, your ratings on the gig platform apps you use, preferences you may have regarding work opportunities, and additional information about your vehicle. Separately you may also choose to enable certain settings or permissions on your device that allows our App to receive data that your device collects about you, including, but not limited to, your location, microphone access (if you choose to enable audio recording related features), contacts (for inviting others), and photos (for your profile photo). You may also voluntarily provide information about yourself when you contact us for support or other inquiries, or provide feedback about the Services.
Interaction Data: We also collect information relating to the actions that you perform while logged into your account or otherwise utilizing the Services.
Location Information. When you use our Services, we may collect and store information about your location by converting your IP address into a rough geo-location or, when interacting with our mobile application, by accessing your mobile device’s GPS or location services, which may provide more precise geolocation information, if you enable location services on your device.
Information Sent by Your Device. We collect certain information that your mobile device, laptop, or other hardware device sends when you use our Services, including but not limited to IP Address, user agent information, network and connectivity information, device identifiers (if available from your OS), language preferences, user settings, software and operating system names and versions, hardware models, as well as other information about your use of our Services.
Third Parties. We may also obtain information about Users from third parties, including but not limited to affiliates, joint marketing partners, lead providers, fraud and risk mitigation vendors, and employment data providers (such as Argyle).
Information Collected Using Cookies and other Web Technologies. Like many website and app owners and operators, we (and our partners who assist us with marketing, analytics, User research, advertising, and user support) may utilize automated data collection tools such as Cookies and Web Beacons to collect certain information from Users of our Services. These tools are used for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to User authentication, account security, delivery and measuring of advertising, analyzing site traffic and trends, and fraud prevention.
“Web Beacons” (also known as web bugs, pixel tags, or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Services for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services, to monitor how many visitors view our Services, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on the device, Web Beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an email).
“Log Data” means certain information about how a User uses our Services. Log Data may include information such as a User’s IP address, browser type, operating system, the web page that a User was visiting before accessing our Services, the pages or features of our Services to which a User browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services that a User clicked on and other statistics. We collect and use Log Data to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) Log Data to improve, customize and enhance our Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences. We may use a person’s IP address and other Log Data to generate information about how our Services are used and to detect fraud.
