Privacy and Security Policy

Last updated: July 17, 2018

Letter from Joe Nigro, our Founder

Before you read our Privacy Policy, I wanted to share how I think about privacy and how those thoughts informed the creation of this policy.

I started Work Today to help you.  I want to make sure that everybody has a fair shot at success.  I want to make sure that no hurdles stand in your way of your finding work you love.

Like you, I use the Internet all the time and care deeply about what Internet businesses do with my personal information.  I will hold Work Today to the same privacy standards that I expect of the websites I use.

There has been a lot of information out there about privacy and data sharing.  We want to innovate to your benefit in this area just as we do in all other areas.  The information that you give us and we collect can be used to make things better for you.  We want you to trust that we will only do things with your information that you would want us to do.

The product that we’ve created collects personal information that you give us and data as you use it.  We will never share your information without your explicit permission to do so.  We will be transparent in the choices we’re making with your information and give you the opportunity to opt out if for some reason you’re not happy with what we do.  We will use it only to make better products for you and fulfill our mission of helping you.

I hope this gives you a clear picture of how Work Today thinks about protecting your privacy.  We will always have your back.

Joe Nigro

Founder/CEO
