  • We don’t store unnecessary personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services or your account on the website.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals. If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our team.


Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Coworkies collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Coworkies’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Coworkies’s visitors/members use its website. From time to time, Coworkies may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Coworkies also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Coworkies.com posts, forum or on our blog. Coworkies only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and publicly disclosed to the public in the form of a comment or other publicly submitted content by the you(such as a comment under a post or forum entry).

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the Coworkies website choose to interact with Coworkies in ways that require Coworkies to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Coworkies gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Coworkies.com to provide a name, city and coworking space name and email address. Those who engage in interactions with Coworkies website – by completing their profile, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and professional information required to facilitate the interactions with other logged in visitors. In each case, Coworkies collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the members interaction with Coworkies website and other website members. Coworkies does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

For instance, Coworkies may monitor the most popular accounts on the Coworkies.com site or use filters to identify popular or useful content. Coworkies may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Coworkies does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.


Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Coworkies discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Coworkies’s behalf or to provide services available at Coworkies’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Coworkies’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Coworkies will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Coworkies discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Coworkies believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Coworkies, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Coworkies website and have supplied your email address, Coworkies may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Coworkies and our products. We primarily use our various product interaction to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Coworkies takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
