4. Finnora Oy provides a right to use the Crowdsorsa application to the user and enables the user to earn money by collecting or placing virtual objects in the map interface of the application. The objects are collected and placed by recording video or taking photos with the application. Finnora Oy guarantees to pay the user for the objects if the associated video or photo meets the guidelines and quality standards presented in the application and the files are uploaded within 5 days of recording.
5. The mission description presenting the guidelines and quality standards can be found in the application. If the guidelines and quality standards are not met in the video or photo uploaded by the user, Finnora Oy will reject the video or photo and allow the data to be collected again by any user of the application. The user will be paid for each object they collect or place if the whole video or set of photos meets the guidelines and quality standards and the user has provided the required payment information when making a payment request through their user profile in the application.
6. The users of the application are required to enter the following personal information to their user account: first name, last name, email address, username, password and country. Finnora Oy may also contact the user by email if required for some form of user service. When making a payment request, the user is required to provide payment information consisting of social security number, IBAN, BIC/SWIFT and income tax percentage. Finnora Oy will not store any payment information outside the time of handling the payment request.
7. The username and data collection statistics of the user can be publicly published by Finnora Oy both in the application and communication channels such as the company website and social media. Finnora Oy agrees to keep all other information provided by the user private and not transferred to any third parties, except for the delivery of videos, photos and their location data produced by the user to the clients and sending the payment information to the banks and tax authorities as needed.
8. The requirement to provide personal information to the application is based solely on this contract.
9. The information of the users will only be handled by the authorized person(s) within Finnora Oy, who is responsible for the matter in question, for example payments or tax notifications.
10. The legal basis of managing the payment information of the users is: (1) legal obligations to make tax declarations of the non-wage earnings paid to the users of the application; and (2) the right of the users to be paid for the objects they have collected or placed as per the description of the Crowdsorsa application in point 4 and 5.
11. The users are not employees of Finnora Oy in any way. The payments made to the users are not the same as wage payments. The payments are one-time non-wage payments that are paid according to the regulations of the target countries. Finnora Oy will take care of any notifications to the tax authorities of the target countries if required by law.
12. The user has no obligation to participate in the data collection after they have registered as a user of the application. If the user decides to participate, Finnora Oy does not require the user to follow certain hours or ways of collecting data, apart from the general guidelines and quality standards stated in the mission descriptions in the application.
13. Finnora Oy reserves no exclusivity with regards to the registered users work input.
14. Finnora Oy assumes no position of authority with respect to the users of the application. Finnora Oy does not instruct the users in the use of the application, other than what has been generally informed in the Crowdsorsa application and website.
15. Finnora Oy provides no paid leave to the users of the application, no equipment or materials for conducting the work, no office or other work place, and the users are free to use the application at their own discretion.
17. Finnora Oy uses the video, photo and location data produced by the user solely to survey infrastructure assets. The videos, photos and location data produced by the users are anonymized, delivered to a third-party system, and used only for inventory and analysis of infrastructure assets. The video and photo data is stored for at least 3 years to comply with the requirements of the clients.
18. The user of the application agrees to follow traffic rules and legislation applicable in the area where the user is when using the application. When collecting objects while driving, full attention of the user needs to be in driving as the application does not require attention from the user. When the user wants to plan for a new route, the vehicle needs to be stopped at a safe place according to traffic rules and legislation. The phone needs to be placed on a phone holder attached to the windshield or dashboard when collecting objects by car and to the handlebar when using a bicycle. Collecting or placing objects by foot does not require using a phone holder or any other additional equipment but the user still needs to ensure that the phone is held stable when recording video or taking a photo.
19. Finnora Oy will not take any responsibility whatsoever for traffic violations caused by the user. Finnora Oy will also take no responsibility for any accidents whatsoever that have occurred during the use of the application. The user of the application assumes full responsibility for traffic safety and any harm that may occur during the use of the application, whether caused by the user or a third party.
20. Finnora Oy will not take any responsibility for mistakes that may occur in the creation of data collection missions. Due to inaccurate road center line or other type of location data, the collectable objects may sometimes be located in areas which are not accessible to the users. The user agrees to follow the applicable traffic rules and legislation in these kinds of situations, and leave the objects uncollected if it is not possible to collect them safely or without breaking the traffic rules, legislation, or following the quality standards of the application.
21. If the user is speeding, or violates applicable traffic rules or legislation in any way while using the application, Finnora Oy reserves the right to deny payment from the user.
22. The user of the application needs to obtain insurances for traffic accidents in accordance with the relevant legislation in the location where they are using the application.
