Below, we explain how you can share with other Giglbossesand Giglers in the Gigl community as part of our mission to bring people together.

Scope of this Privacy Policy

Gigl (“Gigl,” “we,” “our,” and/or “us”) values the privacy of individuals who use our application, websites, and related services (collectively, the “Gigl Platform”). This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains how we collect, use, and share information from Gigl users (“Users”), comprised of both Giglusers who post tasks (“Giglbosses”) and Giglusers who complete tasks (including applicants) (“Giglers”). Beyond the Privacy Policy, your use of Gigl is also subject to our Terms of Service (

Information We Collect

  1. Information You Provide to Us

Registration Information. When you sign up for a Gigl account, you give us your name, email address, phone number, photo of yourself, and drivers’ license. If you decide to sign up for Gigl using your Facebook account, we will also get basic information from your Facebook profile like your name, gender, profile photo, and Facebook friends.

User Profile Information. When you join the Gigl community, you can create a Gigl Profile to share fun facts about yourself and discover mutual friends and interests. Filling out a profile is optional, and you can share as little or as much as you want, beyond the registration information required above. Your name (and Profile photos) is always part of your Profile. Read more below about how you can control who sees your Profile.

Payment Method. When you add a credit card or payment method to your Gigl account, a third party that handles payments for us will receive your card information. To keep your financial data secure, we do not store full credit card information on our servers.

Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact our Customer Support Team, we will receive your name, email address, phone number, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide.

Gigler Application Information. If you decide to join our GiglGigler community, in addition to the basic registration information we ask you for your date of birth, physical address, Gigler’s license information, and in some jurisdictions we may collect additional business license or permitting information. We may share this information with our partners who help us by running background checks on Giglers to help protect the Gigl community.

Payment Information. To make sure Giglers get paid, we may keep information about Giglers’ bank routing numbers, tax information, and any other payment information provided by Giglers.

  1. Information We Collect When You Use the Gigl Platform

Location Information. Gigl is all about connecting Giglers and Giglbosses. To do this, we need to know where you are. When you open Gigl on your mobile device, we receive your location. We may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background. If you label certain locations, such as where the Gig will take place, we receive that information, too.

Your location information is necessary for things like matching Giglbosses with Giglers. Also, if the need ever arises, our team may use and share location information to help protect the safety of Gigl Users or a member of the public. In addition to the reasons described above, Giglers’ location information and Gig locations are necessary for Giglers to choose whether to accept a Gig. If you give us permission through your device settings or Gigl app, we may collect your location while the app is off to identify promotions or service updates in your area.

Device Information. Gigl receives information from Users’ devices, including IP address, web browser type, mobile operating system version, phone carrier and manufacturer, application installations, device identifiers, mobile advertising identifiers, push notification tokens, and, if you register with your Facebook account, your Facebook identifier. We collect mobile sensor data from Giglers’ devices (such as speed, direction, height, acceleration or deceleration) to improve location accuracy and analyze usage patterns.

Usage Information. To help us understand how you use the Gigl Platform and to help us improve it, we automatically receive information about your interactions with the Gigl Platform, like the pages or other content you view, your actions within the Gigl app, and the dates and times of your access.

Call and Text Information

User Feedback. At Gigl, we want to make sure Users are always enjoying great gigs. Giglbosses and Giglers may rate and review each other at the end of every Gig. We receive information about ratings and reviews and, as we explain below, give Giglbosses information about Giglers’ ratings and reviews and vice versa.

Address Book Contacts. If you permit Gigl to access the address book on your device through the permission system used by your mobile platform, we may access and store names and contact information from your address book to facilitate invitations and social interactions that you initiate through our Platform and for other purposes described in this privacy policy or at the time of consent or collection.

Information from Cookies and Similar Technologies. We collect information through the use of “cookies”, tracking pixels, and similar technologies to understand how you navigate through the Gigl Platform and interact with Gigl advertisements, to learn what content is popular, and to save your preferences. Cookies are small text files that web servers place on your device; they are designed to store basic information and to help websites and apps recognize your browser. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be accessed every time you use the Gigl Platform. You should consult your web browser(s) to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete or choose not to accept cookies from us, you may be missing out on certain features of the Gigl Platform.

How We Share the Information We Collect

  1. Sharing Between Users

Sharing between Giglbosses and Giglers. Giglbosses and Giglers that have been matched for a Gig are able to see basic information about each other, such as names, photo, ratings, and any information they have added to their Profiles. Giglers see the Gig location that the Giglboss has provided. Giglbosses’ ratings of Giglers are shared with Giglers on a weekly basis. We de-identify the ratings and feedback, but we can’t rule out that a Gigler may be able to identify the Giglboss that provided the rating or feedback.

If you connect to the Gigl Platform through an integration with a third party service, we may share information about your use of the Gigl Platform with that third party. We may share your information with our third party partners in order to receive additional information about you. We may also share your information with third party partners to create offers that may be of interest to you.

Third Party Services. The Gigl Platform may allow you to connect with other websites, products, or services that we don’t have control over. If you use these services, we will provide the third party with information about you to allow them to provide the service to you.

Giglbosses will always be able to see Giglers’ names, rating, and profile photos.
