3. How We Process Data

Our business purpose is to provide a secure, accessible and easy-to-use online marketplace for connecting Performers with Clients who wish to book them.

The personal information we collect as outlined in this document is collected on the legal basis of Legitimate Interests.  “Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business, to enable us to give you the best service/products and the best and most secure experience.  In other words, all of our data collection is done to support our purpose as a business, as described above.  We only collect data which is necessary for this purpose.  

For each piece of personal information we collect, a Legitimate Interests Assessment has been carried out to ensure its collection is necessary to support our business purpose and appropriately serve you.  For example, we have an interest in making sure our emails are relevant for you, so we may process your information to send you emails that are tailored to your interests.  Similarly, we may process your information in accordance with this policy to protect you against fraud when transacting on Our Platform, and to ensure our systems are secure.

When we process your personal information, we make sure to consider any potential impact there may be on you and your rights under data protection and privacy laws so as to minimize adverse impacts as much as possible.  We will not use your personal data for activities unrelated to the legitimate business purpose/reason for which it was collected, unless we have your consent or are required to do so by law.

We process personal information for legitimate business purposes, which include some or all of the following:

  • to enable you to access and use The Arrive Platform;
  • where the processing enables us to enhance, modify, personalize or otherwise improve our services/communications for the benefit of our customers;
  • to identify and prevent fraud;
  • to enhance the security of our network and information systems;
  • to better understand how you interact with Our Platform (this may include the use of third-party tools such as Google Analytics);
  • to provide email and text communications which are required or we think will be of interest to you (including service, support and administrative messages, reminders, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and information requested by you);
  • to determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and advertising;
  • to administer rewards, surveys, sweepstakes, contests, or other promotional activities or events sponsored or managed by Arrive or our business partners; and,
  • to comply with our legal obligations, resolve any disputes that we may have with any of our users, and enforce our agreements with third-parties.

Whenever we process data for these purposes, we will ensure that we always keep your personal data rights in high regard and take proper account of them.  If you have any concerns about the way we process your data, you have the right to object.  Please use the email address at the bottom of this page to contact our Data Protection Officer.  Please bear in mind that if you object, this may affect our ability to carry out services for your benefit.

The lists above are not exhaustive and, in some instances, we may need to collect additional data for the purposes set out in this policy.  Some of the above-mentioned personal data is collected directly, such as when you set up an account on Our Platform, submit an inquiry, or send a message to our customer service team.  Other personal data is collected indirectly, for example your browsing activity.  We may also collect personal data from third-parties who have your consent to pass your details to us, or from publicly available sources.

4.1 Referral and Review Services

Our Platform provides various referral/review/invite services that allow you to invite your contacts to use or visit The Platform to complete a specific action (such as verifying a review).

We may integrate The Platform with third-party sites (such as Facebook) so that you can send invitation messages via such third-party sites.  These messages will be sent by the third-party site, and Arrive does not collect or retain the contact information that is used to send them.

You may also send invitation/request emails via The Platform itself, in which case we will ask you for the email addresses to which these messages are to be sent.  You can type in the email addresses manually, or you can request Arrive to import the contacts from your email account address book(s).  In either case, we will use the information for the sole purpose of sending your contacts a one-time email, inviting them to visit The Platform and/or complete a short task.  For such referrals, we will also store the email address(es) of your invitee(s) in order to track if  he/she joins Arrive in response to your invitation.

We do not store email addresses submitted for the purpose of posting a review.

Your Personal Information may be disclosed as follows:

  • As a Performer, your public profile page will always include some minimum information such as your name, your public profile photo and public reviews and statistics related to your previous Bookings.  Parts of your public profile page may be displayed in other parts of The Platform for marketing purposes.  The Platform may also display your approximate geographic location on a map, such that a prospective Client may see where your services are offered.
  • As a Performer, your public profile or parts thereof may be included in search engine indexes, in which case some details from your public profile and reviews may be published as search results.  This option is enabled by default, and you may opt out of it by changing your settings on The Platform.  If you change your settings or the information on your public profile, these search engines may not update their databases quickly or at all.  We do not control the practices of third-party search engines, and they may use caches containing outdated information, including any information indexed by the search engine before you change your settings or the information on your public profile.
  • When you submit a request to book a Performer, your full name will become visible to the Performer.  In addition, if you request a phone call with the Performer and the Performer accepts, we will share your phone number to facilitate the call.  We may also share your phone number when a Booking is confirmed in case the other party needs to contact you.
  • When your Booking Request is accepted, or when you accept a Booking Request, we will disclose some of your personal information to the other party involved, as necessary or reasonable to facilitate the contract.  However, your billing information will never be shared with another user.
  • After a contracted performance has been completed, we will ask you to review the Client or Performer (as applicable).  If you choose to provide a review, your review may be public on The Platform.

Examples of technical security safeguards we use include but are not limited to:

  • Password encryption using an industry standard hashing and salting algorithm;
  • Always using secure HTTP with SSL (HTTPS) to serve pages on our website; and,
  • Mitigating the effects of possible DDoS or other attacks using a third-party CDN (Content Distribution Network).

12. Data Breaches

In the unlikely event of a data security incident, we will notify all affected Members as promptly as reasonably possible.  In most cases this notification will be sent via email.  Where required to do so, we will also notify the appropriate government agency.

Our reporting of a data incident does not constitute acknowledgement of any fault or liability on our part.  Where possible, we will notify Members of steps we are taking to mitigate the effects of an incident, as well as steps we are taking to prevent future incidents of a similar nature.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time.  Where material changes to the terms of the policy are made, we will notify all Members via email and/or via notifications on The Arrive Platform.
