A user of the Services is hereinafter referred to as a “User,” or collectively, the “Users.” Users can include individuals such as website visitors, professionals seeking shifts (“Professionals”) and representatives of facilities or agencies seeking talent (“Facilities”).
What Is Personal Information?
Clipboard’s Collection of Personal Information
Sometimes we collect Personal Information automatically when an individual interacts with our Services, and sometimes we collect the Personal Information directly from an individual. At times, we may collect Personal Information about an individual from other sources, even before our first direct interaction with that individual.
Personal Information Collected from You Directly
We may collect the following Personal Information from you directly:
- Contact Information, including your name, your employer’s name (if applicable), address, phone number, email address, and communications preferences.
- Inquiry Information, including information provided in custom messages sent through our Site. We also may collect your information when you sign up to receive information or notifications from us.
- Facility Information, including facility/company name, related entities’ names, names of facility representatives, those representatives’ positions, address, email address, phone number, profile information, billing and payment information, and any other information provided to us during your account sign-up process or through the Services.
- Survey and Testimonial Information, including information provided in any questions submitted through surveys, or content of any testimonials.
- Any Other Personal Information You Choose to Provide.
Clipboard may also collect and store certain data about your use of the Services on an aggregate and/or de-identified basis.
Personal Information Automatically Collected
As is true of many websites, we and our third-party partners may automatically collect certain information from or in connection with your device when visiting or interacting with our Services, such as the list below and in the sub-sections here:
- Device Data, including internet protocol (IP) address, operating system, device type and version, browser type and version, browser id, the URL entered and the referring page/campaign, date/time of visit, other user agent string data, the time spent on our Services, and any errors that may occur during the visit to our Services). Device Data may overlap with the other categories of data below.
- Analytics Data, including the path taken to our Services, through our Services, and when exiting our Services, usage and activity on or in connection with our Services, metrics on how many emails we send are actually opened and which attachments or links are opened, clicked, or viewed (such as via pixels, as described further below).
- Location Data of Professionals, including precise and coarse geographic location information, which we and/or our third-party providers collect, once enabled by the permissions setting on your device, leading up to the start of shifts you book, when you arrive at and leave those shifts, and when you search for “Urgent Shifts” near you. During the two-hour period before a booked shift, Clipboard actively tracks your location every few minutes in order to predict whether you will be on time for that shift. We share our prediction, as well as a map showing your geographic location up to one hour before your shift, with the Facility with which you booked the shift, and will also notify the Facility if/when it appears that you are on your way to the Facility, are nearby the Facility, and have arrived at the Facility. We will provide you with an “Attendance Confirmation Required” notification if it appears you will not be on time. If you fail to confirm your attendance in response to that notification, we will enable booking of that shift on an Urgent Shift basis by another Professional and cancel your shift as soon as another Professional successfully books the Urgent Shift. Additionally, up to 24 hours before a booked shift, if you open the Clipboard App, we initiate passive tracking, which may provide us with location information as frequently as every two hours. Passive tracking helps us ensure that active tracking is able to start on time, i.e. two hours before your booked shift. We use location data gathered when you arrive at and leave your shifts to verify the completion of those shifts in order to distribute your earnings via InstantPay. We also use location data from your device in order to show you nearby Urgent Shifts when you search for them. You may change the Clipboard App’s access to your location information at any time through your “Settings” app on your device. However, if you do not enable “Always” and “Precise Location” permissions, many important features of the Clipboard App will be unavailable to you, including your ability to access the marketplace, book shifts, receive payments through InstantPay, and see nearby Urgent Shifts. For more information, please see the Control Over Your Information section below.
- Advertising/Advertising Measurement Data, including data associated with your view of, or click on, advertisements served on our Services, cookie IDs or other digital or proprietary identifier (e.g., iOS IDFA, Google AAID) assigned to such device, and device metadata, analytics data, and location data described above, in each case, for purposes of serving advertising (personalized or otherwise) or facilitating advertising measurement/attribution to better optimize or otherwise understand the effectiveness of ad campaigns. For more information on our and third-party partners’ data collection and online advertising practices, please see the Third-Party Data Collection and Online Advertising section below.
- Cookies and Other Technologies. Like many websites, we and our third-party providers may use “cookies” that our Services use to collect and store information about Users. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We and our third-party service providers may also use other tracking technologies, such as “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” SDKs, location-identifying technologies, or similar means in connection with the Services and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, track the actions of Users and email recipients and to automatically collect the Personal Information described in this section (and otherwise expanded upon in other sections). See the Control Over Your Information section below to learn more about how you may limit or disable cookies or certain other tracking technologies on your device.
- UXCam. We use UXCam, which is an analytics solution. UXCam may record: screens that you visit, interaction patterns (such as screen actions, gestures: taps, scrolls), and your device’s details (type, version, model, operating system). We use the information collected by UXCam to improve the Clipboard App and the Services. UXCam stores and processes this information on our behalf and may contain personally identifiable information although UXCam proactively removes it where possible.
Note that we and our third-party partners may combine information that each of us collects automatically with other information about you, including information you choose to provide.
Personal Information Collected Through Other Sources
We also obtain Personal Information from third parties, which we often combine with Personal Information we collect either automatically or directly from you. For example, we may receive the same categories of Personal Information as described above from the following third parties:

The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network. You should always review and, if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and social media networks and services before sharing information and/or linking or connecting them to other services.
- Service Providers: Our service providers that perform services solely on our behalf, such as payment processors or survey and certain advertising/marketing providers, collect Personal Information and may share some or all of this information with us.

Third-Party Data Collection and Online Advertising
General. We participate in interest-based advertising and use third-party advertising companies to serve you targeted advertisements based on Personal Information and to measure the effectiveness of those ads. We permit third-party online advertising networks or exchanges (or other entities, such as demand-side or sell-side platforms or ad servers), measurement/attribution companies, ad fraud companies, social media companies, and other third-party services to collect information about your use of our online services so that they may display ads on our Services, on other websites or services you may use, and on other devices you may use. Typically, though not always, the information used for interest-based advertising is collected through tracking technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, and similar technology, which recognize the device you are using and collect information, including clickstream information, browser type, time and date you visited the Sites, mobile ad ID or other digital identifier (e.g., iOS IDFA, Google AAID, cookie ID, click ID, other proprietary IDs such as open source “universal IDs” or other ID solutions) precise or coarse geolocation, and other information. We may share a common account identifier (such as a hashed email address or user ID) with our third-party advertising partners to help identify you across devices. We and our third-party partners use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests, as well as to provide advertising-related services such as reporting, analytics, market research, and measurement/attribution. We may also use services provided by third parties (such as social media platforms) to serve targeted ads to you and others on such platforms. For example, we may do this by providing your email address (typically in hashed format) or other information (such as phone number, which also is typically provided in hashed format) to the platform provider, such as via API, direct file upload, server-to-server transfer, or integrating the tracking technologies of those platform providers (e.g., pixel). Please see the Control Over Your Information section below to learn how you can opt out of interest-based advertising.
Social Media Platforms and Advertising. Our Services may include social media features, such as the Facebook “Like” button, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, or other widgets. These social media companies may recognize you and collect information about your visit to our Services, and they may set a cookie or employ other tracking technologies. Your interactions with those features are governed by the privacy policies of those companies.
We display targeted advertising to you through social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and other social media forums. For example, these companies have interest-based advertising programs that allow us to direct advertisements to users who have shown interest in our services while those users are on the social media platform, or to groups of other users who share similar traits, such as likely commercial interests and demographics. As mentioned in the section above, we may share a unique identifier, such as a user ID or hashed email address or phone number, with these platform providers or they may collect information from our website visitors through a pixel (or other mechanism, such as API, direct file upload, or server-to-server integration), in order to direct targeted advertising to you or to a custom audience on the social media platform. These advertisements are governed by the privacy policies of those social media companies that provide them. If you do not want to receive targeted ads on your social networks, you may be able to adjust your advertising preferences through your settings on those networks.
Control Over Your Information

This information remains on your profile. You may contact Clipboard customer support (firstname.lastname@example.org or 408-837-0116) at any time to update your contact information and notification preferences.

Edit Your Information
You have the ability to edit your Personal Information.

Please contact us at email@example.com to find out how to change information you cannot access through your account, or if you have any other questions. Our databases automatically update any Personal Information you edit in your profile, or that you request we edit.

Access to Your Device Information
You may control the Services’ access to your device information through your “Settings” app on your device. For instance, you can withdraw permission for the Services to access your network devices and geolocation and to integrate with your other applications. Withdrawing access to certain device information will affect the features and functionality of the Services, and may inhibit our ability to provide you with the Services you have requested. For example, if you do not grant the Clipboard App “Always” and “Precise Location” permissions with respect to your device’s location data, many important features will be unavailable to you, including the ability to access the marketplace, book shifts, receive payments through InstantPay, and see nearby Urgent Shifts.
Deleting Your Account or Information

Depending on your device and operating system, you may not be able to delete or block all cookies. In addition, if you want to reject cookies across all your browsers and devices, you will need to do so on each browser on each device you actively use. You may also set your email options to prevent the automatic downloading of images that may contain technologies that would allow us to know whether you have accessed our email and performed certain functions with it.
Sharing with Other Healthcare Professionals
If you are a Professional and do not want your Personal Information and shift booking activity shared with other Professionals, including via our Work with Friends feature, you may disable such sharing by opening the Clipboard App, then tapping “My Account” in the bottom right corner, then tapping “Profile,” then turning on “Hide me as a colleague on shifts.”
