DistantJob is GDPR compliant. This means nothing to regular humans. So here’s what that means in plain English:
We collect data while you browse our website. We use it for nothing that’s evil or nefarious. We don’t sell your data to partners. We don’t give it away. We don’t use it to send you spam. We don’t print it out to cuddle with late at night, while watching Frasier reruns and eating spoonfuls of mayonnaise. Huuuum, mayo…
We use it just to make sure stuff works on the website, and that you get the best experience possible. Stuff like… Letting those cute chat pop-ups know what region you are browsing from, so we can set you up with the person that’s most likely to understand you and your needs. Or the ability to get back in touch with you if you fill out a form but accidentally close the page before it sends.
These are those “cookies” your browser is always telling you about. You can get internet diabetes if you get too many cookies, so it’s a good thing to be aware of them! Please note that we collect no personal data in this way. Merely info about your browser, your location, and the actions you take on our website.
And, well, if you fill in a form on the website, we get the data you insert. That would fall into the realm of personal data. To us, that kinda means that you’re interested in getting info about our products. So we’ll use that data to gauge your needs and get in touch with you about that. Nothing else.
Please keep in mind that by agreeing to these terms, you also agree that your data is being stored outside of EU territory. This is simply because we are a fully remote company, and our employees are constantly moving around the world. Not because we have a secret underground base in Antarctica. Though that would be rad.
Of course, if you object to us having that info, poke us at [email protected], and we’ll provide you with a comprehensive review of all the data we collected from your browsing, as well as delete it all, if that’s what you want.
