How we will use your information  

We use your information to provide our Services and help pair Specialists/Service Providers with Customers.

We also use the information we collect:

  • To create an account for you either as a Customer or as a Specialist/Service Provider so that you can use our Services. You will not be able to create an account without the required information;
  • For customer support and resolving problems;
  • To improve our Services and offerings;
  • To verify transactions and prevent fraud;

We use your personal information to adapt our Services to your needs, for example:

  • We use ratings and feedback on Specialists which we receive from Customers to provide better recommendations to other Customers through our Automated Decision Making system algorithm to suggest a match.
  • We use information you give us about your preferences to adapt the Services we provide or may to you.

Verifying Transactions and Preventing Fraud

  • Keep you updated about changes to our services – for example use your contact details to send you email on new features or tell you about changes to the terms of our service or to this Privacy Policy.

We may collect, use and keep information about you to investigate or address claims or disputes relating to the use of our Services or your interactions with us, or if we are required to do so by law or as ordered or requested by regulators, government entities, and official inquiries.


Profiling and Automatic Decision Making


Profiling: we use and combine information we collect about you in order to create a profile of your inferred preferences and needs, and, if you are a Specialist, also of the characteristics and qualities of your offering. This profile is created and updated automatically by our Systems on the basis of new or updated information we collect when you use our Services (such as Customer ratings).


Automatic Decision Making: we use your profile to make automatic decision about:

  • How to best match you with a Specialist if you are a Customer looking for one, or, if you are a Specialist/Service Provider, how to best match you with a Customer who needs your services or expertise.
  • Determining Specialist ratings, and deactivating Specialists with low ratings.
  • Deactivating users who are identified as having engaged in fraud or activities that may otherwise harm Spetz, its users, and others.

We have designed our System to automatically match Specialists and Customers in a consistent and fair manner based on relevant information, but if you have concerns you can contact us at info@spetz.app/ to discuss this further.


When do we share your information with others? 

We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement.

  1. For Business Purposes:

If you are a Specialist/Service Provider, we need to share information about you (name, ratings, experience) with Customers looking for services in the field of expertise you provide.

If you are a Customer, once you have requested the help of a Specialist, we will share your contact details (name, phone number) and information about your location and request with the Specialist requested.

We may also need to share information about you and Services you requested, received or provided with other users when we verify or try to solve a problem you had with them or when you ask us to (for example when you post on our public forums).

  1. With Service Providers:

We may provide your personal information to agents or service providers acting on our behalf for limited purposes. For example, we may share personal information with our agents or service providers who:

  • help us market and promote our services
  • display advertisements on our web site or in our mobile application


  1. Security/Fraud Protection:

We may also share your information for the purposes of protecting against fraud, and insure confidentiality and security.

  1. As Required By Law:

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law (e.g., to comply with a subpoena, warrant, court order, or similar legal process served on our website) and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, and/or respond to a government request. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.

  1. Business Transition:

In the event Spetz goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.


Transfer of personal information overseas

In order to provide you with the best products and services possible, we may transfer or disclose personal information we have collected about you to a person or organization in a foreign country including:

  • to our service providers located in the Philippines
  • to service providers who store data or operate outside the United States; and/or
  • otherwise as required or authorized by law.

Where we do this, we take reasonable steps to ensure that those parties do not breach the applicable privacy provisions herein.


How long do we keep your information?

We keep your information for as long as you use our Services (note we cannot provide our services without your information) and delete it one year after we close your account at your request, or if your account is not active for a long time.

You can ask us at any time to delete your information by emailing info@spetz.app/ and we will delete all information which we do not need to keep for legal reasons such as:

  • keeping financial records of payments and transactions,
  • honoring your choice to unsubscribe from our mailing list or not to be contacted,
  • dealing with open disputes,
  • keeping legal evidence of agreements we had or actions we took,
  • compiling with court orders, police warrants or instructions of other legal authorities.

If we do need to keep personal information about you for any such legal reasons we will keep it as required under the law.


Security and storage

Spetz places a great importance on the security of all information associated with our customers and Specialists/Service providers. We have security measures in place to protect against the misuse, interference, loss and unauthorized access, modification or disclosure of personal information under our control. However, no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used, or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy. Some of the measures we take are:

  • Limiting access to personal information to those employees who are critical to communicating with you and/or processing contributions.
  • Implementing appropriate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard against unauthorized access or use.
  • Requiring appropriate consents and protections from our business partners before we share any personally identifiable information.

While we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Website cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. Moreover, where you may be required to use passwords, or other special access features on this Website, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.

We note that you are solely responsible for keeping your passwords and/or account information secret. You should be careful and responsible whenever you are online.


Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags, and navigational data collection.

Our System may use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our System, and administer and improve services to our consumers.

A “cookie” is a bit of information that a website sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences.

“Session cookies” are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to improve navigation on websites and to collect aggregate statistical information. Our System uses session cookies.

“Persistent cookies” are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (e.g., username), helping to determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customizing the website based on your preferences. Our System uses persistent cookies.

“Internet tags” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. This Website uses Internet tags. “Navigational data” (“log files,” “server logs,” and “clickstream” data) and “Internet Tags” are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors. This System uses navigational data.


This System may contain links to websites of third parties not affiliated with Spetz. This Privacy Policy will not apply to these third-party websites and Spetz is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content on any of these other websites. We do not disclose personally identifiable information to those responsible for the linked sites. The linked sites, however, may collect personal information from you when you link to their site. This collecting of information is not subject to the control of Spetz or the System. To ensure protection of your privacy, always review the privacy policies of the sites you visit by linking from this System.


We may display personal testimonials on our System in addition to other endorsements. With your consent, we may post your testimonial along with your name and city/state of residence. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at info@spetz.app/.


California Do Not Track Disclosures

How do we respond to Web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services?

We currently do not respond to DNT signals in browsers because we do not track individual users across the web.

May other parties collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across different websites when they visit http://spetz.app/us?   


Notice to California Residents

If you are a resident of California, please see our CCPA Privacy Notice available here. With certain exceptions, residents of the State of California may request (a) disclosure of personal information collected, (b) disclosure of personal information sold or disclosed for a business purpose, (c) deletion of personal information, (d) to opt out of the sale of personal information, and (e) access and data portability. Moreover, we will not discriminate based on your exercise of such rights. If you are a California resident and want to make any such requests, please contact us through our website (http://spetz.app/us), Privacy Policy, address or info@spetz.app/us.
