All data is anonymized. The machine learning takes place with the help of a cloud provider (SaaS). In addition, the cloud provider bears the TRUSTe APEC data protection seal (cross-border data protection regulations). This type of processing of personal data is a prerequisite for machine learning and thus also for the fulfillment of the contract and the achievement of the original purpose. The justification for the fulfillment of the contract also applies with regard to the general optimization measures of the service provider, which can only be made possible through ongoing training of algorithms. The anonymized data of the profile upload can also be used anonymously by the service provider beyond the contract period. The cloud provider used by the service provider is a member of the European Union Data Protection Code of Conduct for Cloud Service Providers (CoC).

Profile and tender upload for MaaS
The object of the use of data is the analysis and evaluation of advertisements and candidate profiles provided. Personal information in advertisements and / or candidate profiles is provided by the deployment company and recruiting partners and read and analyzed by ITaskUp and with the help of the cloud service provider mentioned in the above section as a sub-processor, and the corresponding results are returned to the user of the MaaS instance. No data is stored on the server of ITaskUp or on servers of the sub-processor beyond the duration of the processing.
Username and password
The user creates the user name and password himself and receives an activation link on his specified email address. The user should treat the password confidentially. For security reasons, he should change his password from time to time. When logging in, the user name and password are transmitted in https-encrypted form. This increases security. As a service provider, we store the password in encrypted form. None of our employees will ask the user to reveal the password. Should the user still receive such a request, it is probably a phishing attack. In such a case we ask that you notify us.

These are the date and time of acceptance of the terms and conditions by the user, the date of the last profile changes and the date of the last log-in at ITaskUp.

This Policy sets out the dispute process to be followed in order to resolve a dispute between a Buyer and Seller.
Both parties of the Dispute case can elect to have their dispute arbitrated by the Dispute Team. The role of the Dispute Team extends to making all actions necessary to resolve the case in an impartial and evidential manner. You acknowledge that the verdict of the Dispute Team is final, binding, and irreversible.
Once a dispute is opened, a Buyer is given 14 days to respond to it. Otherwise, they will automatically lose the dispute and the pending funds will be transferred to the Seller's account.
Once a dispute is opened, a Seller is given 4 days to respond to it. Otherwise, they will automatically lose the dispute and the pending funds will be returned to the Buyer's account.
The complainant should select the Project to be disputed. A description of the issue and an explanation of why the dispute is being opened should be given. From this step until step3, users are encouraged to attach any files that could support their claims.
Finally, the complainant is requested to enter the amount he or she is prepared to pay for the Project (if a Buyer) or wish to get paid for the Project (if a Seller). The amount could be between 0 and the total amount fixed for the project in question.
At this stage, either party can negotiate for partial compensation, or (after a period of time) choose to have Dispute Team arbitrate the dispute. Both parties will have the opportunity to tell their side of the story and also negotiate terms to resolve the issue between themselves.
This step is the last step where both Users can submit their final evidence to support their case. After this step, the involved parties are no longer allowed to submit evidence. The dispute will be resolved based upon the evidence provided through the Dispute System. Once the dispute has proceeded to step4, further evidence will no longer be accepted.
At step 4, the Dispute Team will review all evidence and other information provided to reach a decision (usually within 48 hours). Dispute verdicts are final, binding, and irreversible.
Should you choose to have the Dispute Team arbitrate your dispute, you agree to allow the Dispute Team to read all correspondence made on the Site and download or access, and test (if necessary), all uploaded files, programs, and websites related to the dispute for the sole purpose of having your dispute resolved. You are highly encouraged to submit all the documents that would support your claims on your dispute. Provide the products, contracts, and other files relating to the project and the dispute. iTaskUp will retain the confidentiality of the project and the privacy of the involved users and will not release the collected information to any party unless required by law.
