These reasons are listed below:

  •   Improving the efficiency and quality of the service that our customers can expect from us in the future;
  •   To tailor the content that we or our partners or advertising partners show you to your preferences,
  •   To enable our customer support to assist you in the most efficient manner if you have any questions or complaints;

  1. Automated decision making

We check all our customers for fraud. If fraudulent activity is suspected, we may block you from posting jobs and using our websites.

We check all our customers for fraud because this is necessary for the performance of the agreed services with customers. We do this by checking whether payment is made for our services. This check also serves to protect individuals against fraudulent transactions with their payment card.

Due to the number of clients and orders we deal with, we use automated systems, including a third party, to decide whether or not to accept a job. We believe this is a fairer, more accurate and more efficient method of fraud detection, as verification by natural persons would not be possible due to the number of customers we deal with.

The checks and decisions are based on several components, including industry-standard fraud indications that our fraud detection service provider makes available to us, as well as fraud patterns that we detect on our sites. The combination of these automatically generates a score that indicates the likelihood of a fraudulent transaction. If our system indicates a high score, we can refuse a job or even block you from our services. The specific fraud indications are dynamic as they change depending on the types of fraud detected in the wider world, in the country and on our site at any given time.

Our fraud detection serves to protect all our customers as well as Cleany.Works. You have the right to object to a fraud-related decision that has been made about you. You also have the right to information on how such a decision was made by contacting us as described in Section 1. You enjoy certain rights in relation to these activities - please read the Your rights section for more information.


  1. How long we keep your data

We do not store your personal data longer than we think is strictly necessary.

Information collected by us will be retained for as long as necessary for the purposes described in the "Use of my information" section, in accordance with our legitimate interests or for the period prescribed by applicable law or regulation, for example for reporting purposes.

When determining the applicable retention periods, we take the following factors into account:

  •   Our contractual obligations and rights with regard to the data concerned;
  •   Legal obligation (s) to keep data for a certain period of time;
  •   The statutory limitation periods according to applicable law;
  •   Our legitimate interests for processing, provided we have carried out a balancing of interests (see art. "How we use your data");
  •   (Possible) disputes; and
  •   Guidelines issued by the relevant data protection authority.
