Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to Watch Me Think. Users of this Site should refer to our Privacy Policy for information about how Watch Me Think collects and uses personal information.

By accepting these Terms and Conditions you expressly consent to the way Watch Me Think will handle your personal information as described in the Privacy Policy.

The EUs GDPR protects you and the information about yourself that you give to us.

It also gives you certain rights over the information you’ve given us, such as accessing or anonymizing that data.

It’s pretty much the “gold standard” on privacy, so we apply it globally to our business, not just for EU citizens.

If you any concerns, questions or instructions for us, you can always reach us at thefolks@watchmethink.com

Whilst, in general, this site operates on a work-made-for-hire basis, Watch Me Think will still honour, where appropriate and applicable, the basic principles of the GDPR, as follows:

  • Lawfulness, fairness and transparency

    All your key personal data held in the WMT system is viewable by you in your profile, as are the videos you make under the direction of accepted, paid briefs. We will also respond to any request regarding any additional data that you think we may have as regards your good self.

  • Purpose limitation

    Each brief for which you make videos explains the purpose behind making those videos. These videos will only ever be used for internal research purposes. You will be explicitly notified (pre-brief) or asked (post brief) should there be any request whatsoever to use your video in a wider setting (such as publically). Post-brief requests are entirely dependent on you giving your explicit permission.

    Pre-brief - you must not take part that brief if you object to the stated intended use for the videos.

  • Data minimisation

    We will only ever ask you for information that is relevant to the brief you are paid to make the videos for. You can choose how much or how little information you give. We may store some of this information for a limited time if we think it will help us to stop asking you the same questions over and over again, which we’re sure you’ll be thankful for :-)

  • Accuracy

    You have access to modify and correct your key personal information held by us at anytime by logging into your account. If you feel additional corrections are needed to data that is uneditable by you, or that you think we may hold outside of the application, please get in touch and we will correct and/or remove these for you if they exist.

  • Storage limitation

    The information you give and the videos you make will be held on our servers for as long as they are deemed useful to either ourselves the client that commissioned the video/s under the terms of “work made for hire”.

    However you can request at any time to have your data pseudo anonymized (effectively all text data about you will be erased and replaced by non identifiable pseudo information).

    Accounts that are unused (no-one has logged in) over a 2 year period will be closed and pseudo anonymised.

    All videos will be reviewed at 5 year intervals and those no longer found to be useful will be erased completely.

  • Integrity and confidentiality

    Watch Me Think uses bank level security certificates to secure data transfers. It also uses a secure virtual private server. Your information may also be stored with other services (as listed below) or with our clients. At every step, we will take every reasonable precaution to secure your data against any unauthorised access. If we ever find that this has been breached, we will notify you within 24hrs.

  • Accountability

    Watch Me Think has a nominated Data Protection Officer, has documented its use of all personal data and has policies & processes in place to monitor and escalate any issues that may occur. If you have any questions about your privacy please contact us.

Cancellation or Revocation of Thinker Accounts

If any Thinker breaches these Terms & Conditions, Watch Me Think may, in its sole discretion, cancel, revoke, modify or otherwise amend a Thinker Account. This may result in the Thinker forfeiting any accumulated or due points, as well as be pursued for other legal remedies.

Thinker Rewards

All Thinkers are eligible to participate in the Watch Me Think Rewards Program.

The Watch Me Think Rewards Program will allocate points and cash bonuses to Thinkers based on the quality of the Content they upload to the Site.

Details of the Watch Me Think Rewards Program are set out within the website. The quality of the Content and the points allocated will be determined by Watch Me Think at its sole discretion but based on the quality of the content and the feedback received from clients.

Watch Me Think may at its sole discretion change the Rewards Program and these changes may include but are not limited to changing the criteria for the allocation of points, changing the calculation of the "pot", and changing the way in which the "pot" is distributed between Thinkers.

Payments for your services will be executed within 3 to 14 days after a brief closes, or any end date otherwise given.

Watch Me Think uses PayPal to make payments to you.

A failure to provide a correct PayPal account by the time the pot is shared between the Thinkers in any given quarter will result in the points and associated cash rewards being forfeited.

Because you are classified as a "supplier of services" to Watch Me Think, PayPal will take a % cut of any payment we make to you. As far as we are aware, it is against PayPal's Terms of Service for us to cover that charge for you. Therefore Watch Me Think cannot be responsible or liable for any charges made by PayPal when we pay you for your services as a Thinker.

Watch Me Think pays out money in Australian dollars. This will be converted to your preferred currency. Watch Me Think cannot be held responsible for fluctuations in currency exchange rates set by PayPal between the award being made and your payment being received.

Watch Me Think reserves the right to disqualify, refuse to allocate points, not accept or not publish any Content for any reason, in its sole discretion.

The decisions of Watch Me Think are final and binding. Watch Me Think may or may not communicate such reasons for disqualification to the contributing Thinker.

Thinkers are responsible for verifying the accuracy of the point balance in their Rewards Program account. Any discrepancies, including unauthorized award claims or erroneous point awards must be reported to Watch Me Think within 30 days from the date the change is made to the account, or will not be reviewed. Points are for the sole redemption of the submitting Thinker and may not be transferred between Thinkers. Points may not be sold, bartered or purchased. All questions or disputes regarding eligibility of points for accrual, conversion of points or redemptions of rewards will be resolved by Watch Me Think at its sole discretion.

All Government, Federal, State and/or local taxes for any reward or incentive received by a Thinker, if any, are the sole responsibility of the Thinker. However, if further personal details are required by Watch Me Think in order to fulfil any Government, Federal, State or local tax obligations than this must be provided upon request.

Thinkers should consult with their tax or legal advisor on the appropriate reporting and treatment of any incentives offered by Watch Me Think.

Emails that we send out

Watch Me Think sends emails to the Thinkers who match the criteria to answer specific briefs, asking them to apply to take part. By registering with Watch Me Think you agree to receive these emails. This is because they are integral to the operation of Watch Me Think as a business. It is NOT possible to opt out of receiving these emails.

You can opt-out of receiving all other communications from Watch Me Think, such as newsletters, by modifying your preferences in your account.

If you do not wish to receive Brief Alert Emails you must terminate your account with Watch Me Think.
