Privacy Policy

UPDATED: MARCH 24, 2014

WiseGuy Ventures, LLC ("WiseGuy.com", "our", "us" or "we") is committed to safeguarding the privacy of your information. This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we collect, transmit, and store information about our users. Providing your information is voluntary and your use of the site after the effective date of this document constitutes your acceptance of this Privacy Policy.

Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Provider Terms of Service and User Terms of Service, accessible at https://wiseguy.com/legal/tos.


Information We Collect

In order to help you get the most out of our service, we collect user submitted personally identifiable information when you use the site. We ask site users to submit information in order to use our service. Such information includes, but is not limited to, your name, password, email address, mobile number, birthday, sex, and payment related information. We also collect other non-identifying information that you provide as part of your use of the Site and Services, which includes but is not limited to your school, graduation year, grade point average (GPA), academic major, and personal descriptions. For Providers, we may collect your Social Security number (SSN) or Federal Employer Identification number (FEIN) for tax purposes. Information may be submitted to the WiseGuy.com website or via phone or email when communicating with a WiseGuy.com representative.

We may allow you to register to join the Service as a User or Provider by logging into your account with certain third party social networking sites (“SNS”) (including, but not limited, to Facebook) via our Site. When you register by logging into an SNS via our Site, we may obtain the personal information you have provided to the SNS (such as your “real” name, profile picture, email address, list of SNS friends and other information you make available via the applicable SNS) from the account you have with such SNS and use that information to create your account; the information we obtain may depend on the privacy settings you have with the SNS. If you choose to register as a User to use the Services, you may also register to create an account directly via the Site without logging into an SNS. We may allow you to log into our Site using sign-in services such as Facebook Connect or an Open ID provider. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form. Services like Facebook Connect give you the option to post information about your activities on this Site to your profile page to share with others within your network.

We do not collect any information that is not necessary to provide and improve our Site, Services, features and content (together, the "Services") and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site. As detailed in the "Data Transmission and Storage" section below, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption on any page of the site where we ask you to submit personally identifiable information and encrypt all such information for safe storage in our system. We also gather data that includes things like the referring URL and the type of browser you may be using to access the site. This data is used to better understand and enhance the user experience on the site.


Data Transmission and Storage

WiseGuy.com is committed to keeping your information private and secure. We use industry-standard 256-bit SSL encryption when collecting and transmitting your information through the system. Once information has been collected, we encrypt sensitive data in our database for added security. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Site, you can contact us at support@WiseGuy.com.


Financial Information

If you elect to pay for Sessions with a credit or debit card, we will collect your name, credit or debit card number, expiration date, card verification value (CVV), and billing address associated with the account. If you are a Provider and elect to provide your bank account information for Direct Deposit payments we may ask for your name, account number, routing number, and account type. We do not store any sensitive financial information. All sensitive financial data is stored securely and encrypted by a 3rd party payment provider in full compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Social Media Widgets
