You can help by keeping Us informed of any changes to your Personal Information. If you would like to access your information, have any questions, concerns, comments or suggestions, or if you find any errors in our information about you, please contact Us via email at info@helloiris.io.


We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to provide you with the Hello Iris services, comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services. All information collected by Hello Iris is kept private by default. We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these fundamental principles.

1. Consent

By using the Website, the App or our Services, you consent to the use of your Personal Information, as described in this Privacy Policy. Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, your Personal Information will not be used for any other purpose without your consent. You may withdraw your consent to our processing of your Personal Information at any time. However, withdrawing consent may result in your inability to continue using the Website and/or the Services.

Two types of information may be collected through the Website and our Services: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information. This Privacy Policy does not extend to the collection, use or disclosure of Non-Personal Information (as defined further below).

"Personal Information" is any information about an identifiable individual, such as your name, telephone number, address, email address, and work experience or other resume information. At the time of collection, We will clearly identify the information being collected and the purposes for which it will be used. It is always your choice whether or not to provide Personal Information but if you choose not to provide certain requested Personal Information, in some instances you may not be able to register for an account to use the Website and Services or be able to access and use the Website or Services at all. In other instances, your choice not to provide certain other Personal Information may mean that you will not be able to use certain features of the Website, App and Services.

"Non-Personal Information" is information of an anonymous nature that is not linked to an individual, and may include an Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), the domain used to access the Website, App and/or Services, and the type and version of browser or operating system being used by visitors to the website. It also includes aggregate information, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g. average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors, webpages accessed, and average time spent on the Website, App and/or Services.

Business contact information such as the name, title, business address, email address, or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is generally not considered Personal Information under applicable privacy laws.

Non-Personal Information is collected or derived by Us in the course of operating this Website and the Services. For example, our web servers may automatically collect Non-Personal Information that is provided through your browser or stored in a cookie when you choose to visit the Website and/or use the Services.

2. Collection of Information

We aim to collect, use and disclose only Personal Information as is required to enable Us to create and host your Account (as defined in our Terms of Service), to provide the Services, to maintain our customer/visitor lists, to respond to your inquiries or provide feedback, for identification and authentication purposes and for service improvement. We may collect Personal Information when you register for an account on the Website, App and/or Services, during communications with you and/or when you make purchases through the Services, through user support, and/or by way of user surveys.

3. Use of Information

We collect information for the following purposes:

A. Registration

To create either a Project Owner or Talent Account for accessing the Service, you must provide certain Personal Information to us.

To register for a Talent Account, you must provide us with your full name, cell phone number and email address to allow us to communicate with you. We may also use your cell phone number for account verification and security purposes. Moreover, we collect your cell phone service provider to enable us to send you text messages through our third-party provider. You must also provide us with your direct deposit bank account information to allow us to pay you for any services you provide to Project Owners.

You must also provide certain resume information: employment history, business contact information, links to portfolios or other websites that demonstrate your work experience, and any other information you wish to highlight to Project Owners (collectively, "Work History"). Finally, we collect your province and/or state of residence to allow us to show you projects in your area. You have the option to provide additional Personal Information, such as a profile picture, in your account profile. We may also allow you to use a third-party website, such as Facebook, Twitter or Google, to populate your Account profile.

When you register for Project Owner account, we collect the full name of the person creating the account, as well as the company name and contact information. We also ask you to provide links to IMBD and other websites that demonstrate previous industry experience.

B. Order Processing

Hello Iris uses Stripe and Wave, which are third-party payment processors, to process payment transactions ("Payment Processor"). All users are required to provide valid credit card and billing information ("Billing Information") to a Payment Processor when making purchases through the Hello Iris Service. The collection, use and disclosure of all personal information by the Payment Processor is governed by the Payment Processor’s terms of use and privacy policy. You can view the terms of use for our payment processors here for Stripe and here for Wave.

Hello Iris does not collect this Billing Information. However, Hello Iris will be able to view and use the last four digits of your credit card, the type of card (i.e. Visa, Mastercard etc.) as well as your postal code of your billing address for user identification and authentication purposes. Hello Iris may also collect direct deposit bank information to allow for direct payments.

C. Statistics

We also collect statistics about use of the Services purchased through the Website. This information will be kept confidential, however, aggregate statistics that do not personally identify an individual will be kept by Us and such aggregate statistics may be made available to third parties.

We may disclose Personal Information when We believe in good faith that such disclosure is required by and/or in accordance with the law.

We may also disclose your Personal Information in connection with a corporate re-organization, a merger or amalgamation with another entity, a sale of all or a substantial portion of our assets or stock, including any due diligence exercise carried out in relation to the same, provided that the information disclosed continues to be used for the purposes permitted by this Privacy Policy by the entity acquiring the information.
