Overview
Mohican is firmly committed to the privacy of its members. Mohican works hard to earn and keep your trust, so it adheres to the following principles to protect your privacy:

Mohican does not rent or sell your personally identifiable information to third parties.

Mohican  does not share your contact information with other users or third parties without your consent.

Any personally identifiable information that you provide to Mohican will be secured with industry standard protocols and technology.

 

Information Collection
Mohican is an online marketplace that connects employers with freelancers. When you visit Mohican you provide two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by Mohican and use information collected by Mohican   as you interact with the Mohican.

When you register with Mohican as a Freelancer or as an Employer, you provide certain personal information, including, your name, your email address and your address. Additionally, when you establish your profile as a Freelancer or as an Employer you will provide information relating to your skills, experience, education level, compensation, work availability, geographic location and self-evaluation. Such information does not identify the specificity of the individual member. Freelancers are not required to, but have the option to display their contact information (i.e. name, address, phone number, email address, etc.) to Employers who conduct searches of the Mohican database.

Once registered, Freelancers will depict data on a microsite of their own which will show information such as mentioned above plus percentage of net proceeds they agree to apply to pay to their student debt creditor(s). Freelancers will also have to provide the following information:

  • University where the freelancer studied
  • Amount of student loan outstanding
  • Name of creditor(s) holding their student debt

This information will be kept private and will not be shown on the freelancers’ microsites, unless the corresponding box is checked, authorizing us to do so. It may be used by Mohican without authorization of the freelancers to confirm that they do have outstanding student debt and that it exceeds the $5,000 minimum qualifying them to become members at Mohican. Mohican will promote the freelancers’ services with institutions related to student debt, such as banks, loan originator institutions, universities and other.

It should be stressed that not disclosing all the above information on their microsite may impair the freelancers’ effectiveness and chances of marketing their services successfully, as employers may look to hire freelancers based on it. It should also be stressed that the real names of the freelancers will not be shown on the microsites, only a screen identity. Only when a freelancer is awarded a project we will release their real name automatically, namely their first name and first letter of their last name.

Microsites will be automatically created by pulling the information the freelancer provided in their registration dashboard.
