  9. Cookies consent
  10. To analyse your use of Elancerz, we use Google Analytics, the business analytics service provided by Google LLC located in the United States (“Google”). Google generates statistical information by means of cookies and creates reports about your use of Elancerz. The cookies served by Google Analytics are anonymous first-party cookies (please refer to section 3 for more information) that do not allow us to identify you in any manner. The information generated by cookies will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. To ensure your privacy, your IP address will be anonymised and Google will not combine your IP address with other information Google holds about you. Thus, Google will not be able to identify you. In certain cases (e.g., when required by law or when third parties conduct services on behalf of Google), Google may transfer the information to third parties. For more information about Google Analytics’ privacy practices, please visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245. If you would like to opt out from Google Analytics, you can do so by installing a Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

  11. Google Recaptcha
  12. We use reCAPCHA on Elancerz, the service provided by Google, to verify whether you are a human being and not a robot. It helps to protect Elancerz against spam and abuse. The reCAPTCHA analysis takes place in the background. When you use reCAPCHA, Google will collect some personal and non-personal data from you, such as:

    • All cookies set to your browser by Google in the last 6 months;
    • Information about your mouse clicks;
    • CSS information;
    • Date;
    • Browser language;
    • Any plug-in installed in the browser; and
    • Javascript objects.

    The above-mentioned data will be sent to Google located in the United States. We have a legitimate interest in protecting Elancerz from abusive automated crawling and spam.

  15. OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
  16. In conjunction with our cookies, we use Web beacons and tracking tokens. Web beacons are images (often transparent) that are part of webpages; tracking tokens are digital objects or pieces of code. They allow us to see whether you access certain content on Elancerz or open our emails, monitor your traffic, and generate statistics about how you use Elancerz. This provides us with a possibility to produce specific profiles of your behaviour in combination with other web server logs and cookie-related data. Our use of such tracking technologies is subject to the cookie consent that you provide us with. If you do not provide your consent, withdraw it, or set your browser to refuse cookies, we will not use Web beacons or tracking tokens in combination with non-essential cookies.
