The Mom Project (or "TMP") is deeply committed to maintaining the privacy of the users of its website (themomproject.com) and has created the following "Privacy Policy" to inform you of its policies and practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information through the Site.

Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning attributed in the Terms of Use. By your continued use of the Site or Platform you accept the terms contained in this Privacy Policy.

  1. Your Privacy is Important

    TMP is committed to protecting your privacy, and we are firmly devoted to maintaining your trust in us. We work extremely hard at safeguarding important information provided to us by Companies and Talent and keeping it secure.

    TMP limits the collection, use and processing of collected information to that required to provide the Services and assist in the usability of the Site and the Platform. Information that is personally identifiable to you such as your name, address, email address or phone number is referred as "Personal Information". By submitting Personal Information to us through the Site or Platform (when creating your account or profile, for example), or to our employees during the application or onboarding process, you expressly agree and consent to the processing of your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

  3. Information We Collect

    From Talent: First and last name, user ID, password, contact information (phone number, street address, city, state, postal code, country and email address), short personal summary, your skills, the type of work you are interested in and bank account information (for you to get paid).

    • Your responses to surveys that we might ask you to complete for research purposes.
    • TMP does not collect Personal Information, beyond IP address and information about your browser, from you unless you provide it to us. This means that you can visit our Site without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself.

  4. How we use your Personal Information

    To facilitate connecting its Companies and Talent, TMP will share certain Personal Information you provided to the Platform with prospective organizations who are registered as Companies regarding specific placement opportunities. Also, Services provided through the Platform require payment by wire transfer, check, ACH or credit card. Accordingly, TMP will collect applicable financial information from Company and Talent and will use that information to perform billing and payment operations. Certain Personal Information may be shared with GoodHire, LLC, who may contact Talent directly to obtain information necessary to perform a background check in connection with the Services. To the extent necessary to provide you with the Services, we may provide your Personal Information to other third party contractors or business partners who work on our behalf to help us provide you with the Services or maintain the Site or services on the Platform. TMP will only share your Personal Information with third parties necessary to perform these functions or services.

    TMP will not sell Personal Information with any other third parties or sell your e-mail address or any other contact information to any third parties for any other purpose.

    1. Communication

      We will contact you through email, mobile phone, or through notices posted on our websites, and other ways through our Services. We will send you calendar invites to facilitate interviews with prospective employers and messages about the availability of our Services, security, or other service-related issues. We also send messages about how to use our Services, network updates, reminders, Match notifications, job suggestions and promotional messages from us and our partners. Please be aware that you cannot opt out of receiving service messages from us, including security and legal notices.

      We also enable communication between you and prospective employers. You may receive email and phone communications from prospective employers.

  5. Security

Each employee of TMP signs a confidentiality and nondisclosure agreement to ensure your privacy. The Site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control, and meets or exceeds all industry standards for the protection and confidentiality of personal identifiable information. TMP operates all its services, including any payment information, across the Internet using secure connections (specifically Transport Layer Security/TLS/"HTTPS"/formerly known as SSL). Despite our efforts to keep your Personal Information protected, please know that we cannot guarantee the security of data traveling over the Internet beyond industry standards such as TLS.
