Collection and Use of Personal Information through the Service
Directly from Users. We collect information when a user completes a user profile. A user may provide personal information, such as name, email address, password, photograph, contact information, and health-related information. A user may also provide personal information about others, such as emergency contact and next-of-kin information.
From Clients. Clients may provide information, including personal information, to the TSS Service about their personnel. When providing the TSS Service, TSS maintains personal information collected or provided by our clients using the TSS Service. It is our clients’ responsibility to ensure that the information they collect is collected and used in compliance with applicable law, including, for example, providing the appropriate level of notice to individuals.
Device-Generated Information. We may also collect movement, positioning, geo-location, heart rate, temperature, and other device-sensor information from a user’s device and combine it with user profile information. Such information generally is collected while the device is located within a geographic area around the user’s “work site” during the user’s “work day” as specified by the user or client who employs that user. A user may have the capability to directly when this data is collected.
Customer Support. We may collect personal information through user communications with our customer-support team.
Service Usage. TSS will use information, including personal information and other information described in this Section, as directed by our clients and for internal and service-related purposes.

For example, we may use such information for fraud prevention purposes or to provide the Service or Software to you and our clients.

Consent. By using the TSS Service, users authorize us to gather, parse, and retain data related to the provision of the TSS Service.
Cookies, Automatic Data Collection, and Related Technologies. The TSS Service uses “cookies” and other similar technologies to collect and store automatically-generated information when users access the TSS Service. This information will be used for TSS Service-related purposes, such as to implement user preferences and record anonymous usage statistics. When we associate such information with personal information, we will treat the combination as personal information.
Our third-party partners, such as analytics service providers, also use this technology to collect and store automatically-generated information when users access the TSS Service. Our partners may collect information about your online activities over time and on other websites or apps. When they provide such services, they are governed by their own privacy policies. Users may be able to change browser settings to block and delete cookies when they access the TSS Service through a web browser. However, if the user does that, the TSS Service may not work properly.

Clients. All information collected by the TSS Service about a user while the user works for a client may be provided to that client, except for information collected about users relating to past work with other organizations. In addition to raw data, we may provide clients with aggregate reports based on information collected about users.
Business-Related Third-Party Services. At the direction of our clients, we may share information, including personal information, with third parties that provide other services for our clients. For example, we may share information on behalf of our clients with third-party payroll processing, accounting, and project management systems.
