Effective Date: October 23, 2022
HourlyWork LLC was established to help connect businesses and hourly workers. Our platform connects businesses and workers to help both parties discover opportunities to work together, and to continue with that working relationship over time. To advance our mission, we explain to you what information we may collect, use, share and store about you, and the choices and rights that are available to you. If you have any questions about this Privacy Notice, please contact us at [email protected].
Companies struggle to find hourly workers across different industries and geographies. At the same time, hourly workers deal with financial insecurities when they don’t get consistent and enough work hours. HourlyWork provides a platform for both workers and companies to discover each other, to work together, and extend that relationship long-term. Using HourlyWork, companies can post jobs, hire workers, schedule shifts and track shifts worked. Workers can apply for jobs, provide their availability, accept shift assignments, ask for shift coverage, and communicate with their co-workers through the HourlyWork platform.
Our mission is to help companies improve customer service and revenue by staffing optimally. For workers, it’s about offering them a platform to find shift work to increase their income, and potentially earn long-term employment with companies that match what they want. To learn more about how we support companies and workers, go to www.hourlywork.io.
HourlyWork’s current platform is currently focused only on US based companies and workers. If this change, we will consider extending our Privacy Policies to European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), and Switzerland.
HourlyWork supports companies and individual workers. The information that we collect about you, what we do with that information, and your options in working with us may vary according to the role that you play on our platform.

Security of Your Personal Information
HourlyWork is committed to protecting the Personal Information you share with us. HourlyWork uses appropriate physical, technical, organizational and administrative security measures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized or unlawful access, use, or disclosure, and from accidental loss, destruction, or damage.
We retain Personal Information we collect from you where we have an ongoing business need to do so (for example, to provide you with the Service you have requested to maintain you in our talent pool to be potentially contacted about other employment opportunities or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).
When we have no ongoing business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We keep some of your data even after you close your account.
If you choose to close your HourlyWork account, your personal data will generally stop being visible to others on our Services within 24 hours. We generally delete closed account information within 30 days of account closure, except as noted below.
Information you have shared with others (e.g., through Messages, updates or group posts) or acceptance of work shifts, will remain visible after you close your account or delete the information from your own profile or mailbox, and we do not control data that other Members have copied out of our Services. Groups content and ratings or review content associated with closed accounts will show an unknown user as the source. Your profile may continue to be displayed in the services of others (e.g., search engine results) until they refresh their cache.
International Data Transfers
As a global company, we may transfer Personal Information within HourlyWork and third parties located in the United States and in other countries that may be outside your country of residence for storage and processing in order to provide the Services. These countries may not necessarily have data protection laws as comprehensive as those in your country or residence. In addition, we will have taken appropriate safeguards to protect your Personal Information in accordance with this Notice and applicable law wherever it is processed. These safeguards include implementing the European Commission Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of Personal Information between HourlyWork companies and our self-certification to the Privacy Shield Frameworks which are explained in further detail below. Further details of these safeguards can be provided upon request.
This site is not intended for use by children under the age of 14. HourlyWork does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 14. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under the age of 14, we will delete that data from our systems.
If you have any questions, please contact [email protected] or call us at (617) 786-5800.
