When you use Rotageek (collectively “Rotageek”, “we” and “us”) , you’re trusting us with your personal data. We offer Services (“Services”, “Sites”, or “Rotageek Services”) that enable organisations to predict and meet demand and manage and schedule their employees.This privacy policy describes how Rotageek is committed to the security and the protection of your and your Users' data in line with legal requirements and best practices.

Rotageek Privacy Policy Overview

Rotageek obtains Personal Data about you from various sources to provide our Services and to manage our Sites. “You” may be a visitor to one of our websites, a user of one or more our Services (“User” or “Organisation”) or an employee of a user (“Employee”).

Your agreement with the relevant Organisation should explain how the Organisation shares your personal data with Rotageek, and if you have questions about this sharing, then you should direct those questions to the Organisation.

This privacy policy is meant to help you understand what information we collect, why we collect it and how you can update, manage, export and delete your information.

Personal data that Rotageek collects

Things that you create or provide to us

  • When you create a Rotageek Account, you or your Organisation provide us with personal information that includes your name, personal/business email, job title, business location, payroll ID, and pay rate. The organisation may provide us with your Date of Birth to ensure you are scheduled according to regulations of the country you are resident in.
  • When your account is created, you are provided with a Rotageek username and sent an email to set your Rotageek password. You can also choose to add or remove a phone number and email address.
  • When you fill in our online form to contact our sales team, we collect your full name, work email and anything else you tell us about your project, needs and timeline.

Information that we collect as you use Rotageek

Our Sites use cookies and other technologies to function effectively. These technologies record information about your use of our Sites, including:

  • Browser and device data
    We collect information about the browsers and devices that you use to access Rotageek services, such as IP address, device type, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, and language.

  • Your location information
    We collect information about your location via GPS when you use our Time and Attendance service, which helps us offer features such as geofenced Check-In.

Why Rotageek collects data

We use the information that we collect from all our services for the following purposes:

  • Provide our products and services
    We use your information to deliver Rotageek Services and facilitate the business relationships we have with our Users, such as scheduling staff, receiving notifications about scheduling, leave and swaps and processing timesheets for payroll.

  • Develop new services
    We use the information we collect in existing Rotageek services to help us develop new ones. For example, understanding how people used Rotageek’s original version 1 of our autoscheduling tool, helped us in designing and launching the most recent version 3.
