Resource allocation and staffing matters are inherently complex and unique. Should you choose to continue your inquiry into whether CD’s services are right for you, you will have an opportunity to make additional inquiry of CD and you should make an independent investigation of the suitability of using CD for your particular business needs. Only after such appropriate due diligence, comprehensive review of CD’s service offerings including the terms and conditions of CD’s service agreements, and a thorough screening of any freelancers CD proposes to you should you come to any conclusions or make any decisions about whether CD, or any freelancers proposed by CD are right for you and your specific project needs or requirements.

These T&Cs and any additions, changes, edits and/or modifications made thereto by CD cannot be amended except by CD as set forth above.

1. Introduction
Welcome to the Cyberdesic website (“Site”). Cyberdesic Inc. (“CD”, “we”, “us”and/or “our”) operates this Site to provide our users (“you” and “your”) with information about CD and its service offerings.

CD is used by freelancers (“Freelancers”) who wish to offer their development, engineering and other services (“Services”) and by clients who need the Services (“Clients”). Freelancers who have passed our screening process and are admitted to our network of Freelancers (“Network”) are referred to as “Talent”. For purposes of this Privacy Policy the term “Freelancers” is broader in scope and includes both Talent and Freelancers who are not Talent. The Personal Data we receive from Freelancers and Clients and how we handle it differs, so we explain our data practices for Freelancers and Clients in two distinct sections below. Navigate to the section below that applies to you.

2. Scope
This Privacy Policy sets out how CD collects, retains and uses information, including personal data (“Personal Data”) from and about Freelancers, Clients and other Site visitors and individuals, which include our vendors, partners, blog readers and job applicants.

When you participate in the community of CD’s Freelancers on our Site, we will collect the information that you elect to share in that context. We will use certain of your Personal Data to enable you to create a profile to be displayed within the Services; this profile may be shared with Clients or may be searchable and may be viewed by Clients seeking Freelancers on our Site.
Once you are admitted to the Network and you are matched with a Client, we will receive from the Client information regarding the performance of your services to that Client, as necessary for maintaining standards of excellence and integrity in our Network.

In addition, CD may record video and/or phone calls with you for quality assurance and training purposes.
