Privacy Policy

Introduction

 

Platform Info Exchange Ltd. trading as Worker Info Exchange (WIE) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping workers access and gain insight from data collected about them at work. Whether you are an Uber driver or a Deliveroo rider, WIE aims to tilt the balance away from big platforms in favour of the people who make these companies so successful every day – the workers. By working together to collect and pool our data as workers we can begin to demand a better deal at work. In the context of collecting and using your personal data for these purposes WIE (“we”, “us”, “our”) is the Data Controller.
