This is a data collection project undertaken by SuperSight Media, Inc. (“us”, “we”, “our”, “Agency”) on behalf of its customer, Appen Butler Hill Pty Ltd (“Appen”). For the purposes of this project we will collect data for the use of Appen and Appen’s Customer ( “Customer”). The Customer is a data controller, and Appen may also be an independent data controller. SuperSight Media, Inc. is the data processor. Your decision to participate in this project is completely voluntary and you may decline to participate or request to end your participation in this project at any time by providing us written notice.

 

By signing this form, you are agreeing to provide Appen and Customer with voice, gender, age, country of residence, language, accent, phone device brand, phone device model (we call this “Project Data”), and any other information and materials that you provide to us as required under the project (hereinafter referred to as “Materials”) for the project(s) you’ve enrolled in.  This Data Collection – Consent and Release (“Consent Form”) is attached to and incorporated by reference into the Master Services Agreement (if any) between you and us. The Materials will be used by Appen and Customer, as defined above, and academics, companies and individuals involved in technology research, development and commercialization, and Customer’s respective customers, vendors, partners and affiliates, as well as our vendors who sub process the Materials (each, a “User” and collectively, the “Users”) to assist in the development and advancement of software, machine learning models, artificial intelligence, algorithms and technology research. Your assistance is much appreciated. For more information on how Appen uses data, please review our privacy policies.

 

If you wish to withdraw your participation, please contact us at the Project Contact email above. We and the Users may continue to use the Project Data that you provided in accordance with applicable law and our legal obligations. Please note, a request to delete personal information that is already delivered to a User and processed may not be deemed feasible unless required by applicable law. After your withdrawal, we and/or Appen may continue to retain your account information, such as what projects you participated in, for account management and record-keeping purposes. 

 

Processing of Personal Information 

 

We may need to collect, use, and retain personal information from you, or from another entity you provide your personal information to, in order to: execute the project requirements; communicate with you, report to regulatory authorities as required by law; and fulfill any other obligations the we may have to our customers, vendors, or to governmental authorities. Examples of this include but are not limited to your contact information to be able to contact you, your account information and what projects you worked on for our record-keeping purposes, your payment information so we can pay you any owed amounts, other information for fraud detection/prevention purposes. The legal basis for processing your personal information is that it is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us. You acknowledge and agree to processing and storing of your personal information by us or Appen as necessary to exercise its rights and fulfill its obligations under this Agreement. However, certain special categories of information, such as data concerninghealth or genetic information, biometric data, racial or ethnic origin, religious affiliation or beliefs, political opinions, or sexual orientation, which may be part of the data you submit for the project (but only if the project requires such data), may require your consent before we can process this information. You hereby consent to the collection, processing, and transfer of such special categories of information, and any other project personal information where your consent for processing or transfer is needed under applicable law. Accordingly, you understand that you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting the Project Contact or if your home jurisdiction entitles you to such rights, by making a data subject access request through the link found on Appen’s homepage at appen.com per Appen’s policies.
