This is the Privacy Policy of the TempStars website and mobile applications (together, the “Application”), operated by Sudden Turtle Dental Consulting Inc. (together with our affiliates and subsidiaries, “TempStars”, “we”, “us”, “our” and terms of similar meaning) and our related products and services. It describes the information that we collect from you as part of the normal operation of he Application, and how we use and disclose this information. By accepting the Privacy Policy in registration or by visiting and/or using the Application, you expressly consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to our Terms of Use, www.tempstars.ca/terms In this Privacy Policy, we use the term “User” to describe different types of users of the Application, including registered users and casual browsers of the Application. How We Use Your Information We use personal information in the file we maintain about you, and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the Application, to provide to you the services offered by the Application; resolve service and billing disputes; troubleshoot problems; bill any amounts due from you; measure consumer interest in our products and services; inform you about online and offline offers, products, services, events and updates; deliver information to you that, in some cases, is relevant to your interests, such as product news; customize your experience; detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity; enforce our Terms of Use; provide you with system or administrative messages, and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.

We may also use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze Application usage, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customize the Application’s content, layout, and services. These uses improve the Application and better tailor it to meet your needs, so as to provide you with a smooth, efficient, safe and customized experience while using the Application. On occasion we use email address or other contact information to contact our Users with our newsletter or other similar communication, or to ask them for their input on our services.

In general, any email or other electronic message we send you will contain a link or other instructions to permit you to unsubscribe from such email or messages, except that certain emails or messages are essential to the operation of the Application and you must cancel your account to opt out of receiving them. What Information Do We Collect? Our primary purpose in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your experience safer and easier. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose. Once you become a registered User, we require you to provide various contact and identity information, billing information, and other personal information as indicated on the relevant forms in the Application (which vary, depending on what kind of User you are), and you are no longer anonymous to us.

Where possible, on these forms we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. We collect information when you register to join us by logging into an account that you already have with certain third-party sites (“TPS”) (including, but not limited to, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter). For example, our Application allows you to create an account and login for the Application using your Facebook account credentials. If you are not currently registered as a user of our Application and you click on “Sign Up with Facebook,” you will first be asked to enter your Facebook credentials and then be given the option to register and join us. If you decide to create your user account by logging into a TPS account via the Application, you are using the personal information you have already provided to the TPS (such as your “real” name, email address and other information you make publicly available via the TPS) to create your user account with us. The information we collect may depend on the privacy settings you have with the TPS, so please consult the TPS’s privacy and data practices. The personal information we may collect in this way may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, TPS sign-in or username, profile photo, and any biography you have provided to them. In addition, as you use the Application, you can from time to time enter or send to us personal information. You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to become a User or by not using the particular feature of the Application for which the information is being collected. We use cookies and log data in various ways, as described below. We use cookies for two purposes. First, we use “persistent” cookies to save your login information for future logins to the Application. Second, we use “session ID” cookies to enable certain features of the Application, to better understand how you interact with the Application and to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Application. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from the Application and close your browser.

We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our Application. When you use our Application, whether as a registered user or a non-registered user, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends (“log data”). This log data may include information such as the browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Application, pages of our Application that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Application, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Application and the Application’s technical administration, to increase the Application’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Application to our visitors’ needs. For example, some of this information is collected so that when you visit the Application again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Application meet the criteria required to process their requests. We also use Google, as a third party vendor, to serve our ads on other websites. Google uses what it calls a “DART cookie” to enable it to serve ads to users based on their visits to participating websites.

As a result of our use of Google as a vendor and the use of DART cookies, the ads that you will be served on the internet may in some cases be based on your visit to our Application. We may also use other third-party services to assist us in using and analyzing these tools and the data they provide, and in monitoring your use of the Application. Following your registration on the Application, you can review and change your information in your account area. If you disclose personal information in any posting in our forum or blog and wish to have it removed, please contact us at the support contact information listed below, and posted on the Application. Our Disclosure of Your Information We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy policy. We do not sell your personal information to third parties. The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed in the normal scope of business to provide our services: Anonymized Aggregated Data. We aggregate and anonymize Application use information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to Users and others. However, in these situations, we do not disclose any information that could be used to identify you personally.

Privacy of Communications / Conversations

While we will make an effort to honour requests to keep communications between TempStars, dental offices and other members confidential, we will exercise our judgement when relaying details and information regarding placements, reasons for cancellations, complaints, comments, feedback and other information relevant to a shift or job.   Any details related to these topics may be relayed to relevant parties at our discretion, although for the most part we’ll honour requests to keep such information private.  For this reason, consider any communication with TempStars to be non-confidential.

Public Display or Display to other Users

If you post on our forum or blog your username and other information you include is displayed in your postings or comments, and is therefore available to the public. All of your activities in the public areas of the forum will be identifiable to your User ID, and other people can see your published profile content. When you register through the Application and submit personal information to create a User profile or a collection, other users will see your name. If you choose to provide additional personal information in your profile, other users will see that additional personal information, including, but not limited to, your photo, location, website and biography. Providing additional personal information is voluntary. We recommend that you avoid disclosing any information you consider sensitive and confidential. In certain cases the Application allows Users to provide ratings and reviews of other Users, and such information will be published on the areas of the Application visible to registered Users. When completing and Evaluation Survey, comments designated as Public may be visible to all members of the public, regardless of whether they are registered users or not.

Regarding comments designated as Private, we make reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of these comments although we make not warrant of guarantee that these comments might not be made inadvertently public. Third Party Services. We may share the information in your user account (including your personal information) with the TPSs that you have linked to your account. These TPSs have access to your personal information only for this purpose (unless the TPS has received your personal information independently of the Application) and not for other purposes. You may update certain TPS preferences, including the option to share or post your activity through your respective TPS accounts, under your account settings. Subsidiaries and Affiliates; Service Providers. We may from time to time use the services of affiliates, subsidiaries and unrelated service providers in the operation of the Application, and may disclose personal information to them in the course of our use of their services. For example, we may use the services of third-party hosting companies to host the operation of the Application. This may involve the hosting of data, including personal information, on servers operated by those hosting companies, and in some cases those servers may be located in, or data enroute to or from those servers may transit, other jurisdictions, including the United States.

We take care to use only service providers that we believe are reputable and able to live up to our and your expectations, including about the handling of confidential information. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us. Please see the bottom of this policy for further information about how to direct any questions you might have about service providers outside of Canada. Legal Requests and Business Transitions; Emergencies. We may disclose any of your personal information in our possession if we believe it necessary or appropriate to do so (a) to respond to any governmental authority as part of an investigation to determine our compliance with any applicable law, rule, or regulation (including privacy laws, rules, and regulations), (b) in response to a court order, subpoena, discovery request or other lawful request, or judicial or administrative proceeding, (c) as otherwise required under any applicable law, rule, or regulation, (d) to protect or defend our rights or property or those of other users, or (e) if we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets (you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Application of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information). Controlling Your Information Cookies.

If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept cookies from our Application, you can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. Note: The service does not currently employ TPS login/sign-up, but if that becomes an option you may decide at any time that you no longer wish to have your TPS account linked to your account with us, you will be able to de-link the TPS account in your user account settings on the Application. Your Use of Other Persons’ Information By entering into our Terms of Use, you agree that, with respect to the personal information of other persons that you collect, use and disclose on the Application, you have all necessary consents and rights to collect, use and disclose that information as described in this Privacy Policy from time to time, and you agree that the indemnity you give to us in the Terms of Use applies to any non-compliance by you with the foregoing. Security We strive to protect your personal information although we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. More information about security is available on the Application and in our Terms of Use. Other Information Collectors Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you.

To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties through the Application, different rules may apply to their use, collection and disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them.

Since we do not control the information use, collection or disclosure policies of third parties, you are subject to their privacy policies. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others. Correcting and Updating Your Personal Information To review, delete and update your personal information to ensure it is accurate, you may login into your account to make the changes, or you may contact us at help@tempstars.ca Data Retention We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Additional Policy Information If you click on a link to a third-party site, you will leave the Application and go to the site you selected. If you elect to use a third-party product or service in conjunction with ours, you yourself enter into a license agreement with the third party for use of their product or service and their use of your data. Because we cannot control the activities of third parties, we cannot accept responsibility for any use of your personal information by such third parties, and we cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy practices as we do. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any other service provider from whom you request services.

If you visit a third party website that is linked to the Application, you should read that site’s privacy policy before providing any personal information. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you want your testimonial removed please contact us at help@tempstars.ca. Our Web site includes Social Media Features, such as the Facebook and Twitter buttons and Widgets, such as the Share this button or interactive mini-programs that run on our site. These Features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. Social Media Features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Application. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Notification of Privacy Statement Changes

Your resume and photo are stored on our servers and are accessible by all member dental offices.  Uploaded resumes and photos must not be considered private or confidential and may become part of the public domain.  If you do not agree to these terms regarding resumes and photos, do not upload a photo or resume to your account.  You may remove your resume or photo at any time by accessing your profile in the app and tapping “Remove resume” and/or “Remove photo” respectively.  Remember to save your changes.
We may update this privacy policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the email address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Application prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.

Regarding Resumes Uploaded and Submitted

Client agrees to receive electronic communications from TempStars.
Regarding resume uploads and submission for Custom Offers:  When you submit an offer to work a shift, that office can view your uploaded resume.   We try to remove contact information from resumes (e-mail and phone numbers).  We do this for 2 reasons:
  1.  In an effort to help protect your privacy
  2. To minimize the occurrence of “off-platform” arrangements.  Most dental offices use TempStars as intended, but there are some unscrupulous offices that post a shift, collect resumes through Custom Offers, then cancel the posting and contact the hygienists directly from the resume contact information, to avoid the placement fee.  This is a violation of our Terms of Service.  To avoid this,  when you upload your resume, we remove contact information.
This is only for resumes related to temping.  If you’re applying for a permanent or contract position at the office, we leave the contact information intact.  This is a manual process and we make no assurances that your contact information will be accurately or completely removed.  You are accepting that any/all information contained in your submitted documents can be viewed by dental offices, and that we can’t make any guarantees or assurances of the confidentiality of the information once you submit an offer to an office, or that the office will keep your information confidential.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our site will not function as effectively when viewed by the users. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

As you visit and browse our website, the site uses cookies to differentiate you from other users. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from having to log in more than is necessary for security. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve our Website and better serve our clients. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies.

What are Dynamic Ads?

Dynamic Ads are ads that are personalized in real-time to the user. Unlike static ads that show the same content on every impression, Dynamic Ads enable the advertiser to display a unique creative for different users. Dynamic Ads are the only feasible way to scale up the number of creatives per campaign and to personalize them on each impression.

What is ReTargeting?

The main goal of ReTargeting Ads is to re-engage site visitors after they have left the site. Dynamic ReTargeting Ads are generated based on the actual products or offers viewed on the advertiser’s site. For example if you’ve visited a retailer’s website and viewed a specific product, you might receive a banner ad containing that product. Rather than showing the same ad to every visitor,Sudden Turtle Dental Consulting Inc. Dynamic Ad Application will select the most relevant ad copy based on the user’s activity on the site.Sudden Turtle Dental Consulting Inc. ReTargeting Platform works when an advertiser places our tag on his website. The tag embeds a third party cookie on the browser of users visiting the site. Using Real Time Bidding (RTB) Ad Exchanges, it is then possible to focus media buying efforts against those visitors. It is important to note that the cookie itself does not contain any personal identifying information. Our Personalized ReTargeting ads intelligently match the right offering to each visitor based on his previous activities on the site. Each advertiser using Sudden Turtle Dental Consulting Inc. services is responsible to limit the number of ad impressions shown to each user in order to ensure that viewers are not overly exposed to specific ads.

How Can I Remove Myself from Being ReTargeted?

Sudden Turtle Dental Consulting Inc. makes removing our tracking cookie easy for any user who wishes to do so. Users that don’t want to see TempStars ads should simply email help@tempstars.ca

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.

What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.

  1.  HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you.
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than in relation to sending direct marketing communications to you via email or text message. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by Contacting us.

Client agrees to receive electronic communications from TempStars.
Regarding resume uploads and submission for Custom Offers:  When you submit an offer to work a shift, that office can view your uploaded resume.   We try to remove contact information from resumes (e-mail and phone numbers).  We do this for 2 reasons:
  1.  In an effort to help protect your privacy
  2. To minimize the occurrence of “off-platform” arrangements.  Most dental offices use TempStars as intended, but there are some unscrupulous offices that post a shift, collect resumes through Custom Offers, then cancel the posting and contact the hygienists directly from the resume contact information, to avoid the placement fee.  This is a violation of our Terms of Service.  To avoid this,  when you upload your resume, we remove contact information.
This is only for resumes related to temping.  If you’re applying for a permanent or contract position at the office, we leave the contact information intact.  This is a manual process and we make no assurances that your contact information will be accurately or completely removed.  You are accepting that any/all information contained in your submitted documents can be viewed by dental offices, and that we can’t make any guarantees or assurances of the confidentiality of the information once you submit an offer to an office, or that the office will keep your information confidential.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data are available in our retention policy which you can request from us.

NO FEE USUALLY REQUIRED

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

WHAT WE MAY NEED FROM YOU

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

TIME LIMIT TO RESPOND

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

A Special Note About Children

Children are not eligible to use our services unsupervised and we ask that children (under the age of 14) do not submit any personal information to us. If you are a minor, you can use this service only in conjunction with permission and guidance from your parents or guardians.

Acquisition or Changes in Ownership

In the event that the website (or a substantial portion of its assets) is acquired, your information would be considered part of those assets, and may be part of those assets that are transferred.

Policy Modifications

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If/when changes are made to this Privacy Policy, we will email users who have given us permission to do so. We will post any changes here, so be sure to check back periodically. However, please be assured that if the Privacy Policy changes in the future, we will not use the personal information you have submitted to us under this Privacy Policy in a manner that is materially inconsistent with this Privacy Policy, without your prior consent.
