You also may opt-out of receiving marketing emails from us by following the opt-out instructions provided in those emails.

We also use HTTP strict transport security to add an additional layer of protection for our Truelancer Users. But remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.

If you would like us to delete your account in our system, you can do so by sending an writeen request by email to [email protected]. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request; however, certain information will actively persist on the Service even if you close your account, including information in your Workstream and messages you posted to the Service.
