We will not be held liable for any losses or damages, direct or indirect, pecuniary or non-pecuniary, resulting from the actions or omissions of any Payment Service Provider, and we expressly disclaim any responsibility in this regard.

Any fees imposed on you by a Payment Service Provider are in addition to any fees payable to us.

Except for Remote Team’s role as a limited payment agent for Contractors, Remote Team does not and will not provide banking, deposit taking, stored value, escrow, insurance or any other financial service to Users. Remote Team do not guarantee that the Contractors will pay own freelancers or users. Depending on your location, some Payment Methods may not be available to you, and we cannot guarantee that you will be able to use any Payment Method in connection with the Service even in locations where your preferred Payment Method is available for use. Depending on the desired Payment Method, Users may be required to enter into a separate Payment Service Provider agreement.

Remote Team is also not responsible for any Payment Service fee changing.

Disputes and Contract Cancellations

Reversals and Disputes. Clients should not initiate payments until Contractors have meet the acceptance criteria or other requirements detailed in a Contract. Except to satisfy the compliance obligations set forth in this terms, Remote Team cannot reverse payments or withhold funds from Contractors, and cannot cause Payment Service Providers to reverse payments or withhold funds from Contractors once funds have been received by Remote Team or the relevant Payment Service Provider. If a Client is not satisfied with the service provided by a Contractor or makes a payment in error, the Client must initiate a refund, reversal or other payment dispute process directly with the Contractor or with the relevant Payment Service Provider. Remote Team will not adjudicate payment or Contract disputes between Users regardless of Payment Method or Contract status under any circumstances, and Users are solely responsible for dispute settlement. Refunds and reversals of payments made through a Payment Service Provider are subject to the terms and conditions of your Payment Service Provider agreement.

User-Initiated Contract Cancellation. If a Client owes outstanding payments to a Contractor after completion of work, or if a Client is dissatisfied with the service provided by a Contractor, the Client or Contractor may initiate cancellation of the Contract through the Remote Team dashboard. Cancellation of a Contract through the Remote Team dashboard has no bearing whatsoever on the merits of a Contract dispute, or the interpretation of the terms of, or legality of a Contract. The Service records the initiator of, and the time and date of the cancellation. Users may not initiate or request payment for services related to, or alter the status of a Contract after it has been cancelled.

Contract Cancellation by Remote Team. Remote Team may cancel a Contract in the event of suspicious Account activity or Account compromise; fraud, harassment, and threats; unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices; illegal acts; at the direction of a regulatory authority; or for any other violation of these Terms of Service. Remote Team may also cancel a Contract if a User is no longer a Remote Team Accountholder in good standing. Please contact us if you believe a Contract or another User is in violation of these Terms.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third party applications or software that integrate with the Services through the Remote Team service (“Third Party Services”), or any other third party products, services or businesses. In addition, a separate agreement governs delivery, access and use of the Services, including the processing of any messages, files or other content submitted through Services accounts.

Information We Collect And Receive

We may collect and receive Customer Data and other information and data (“Other Information”) in a variety of ways:

• Customer Data. Customers or individuals granted access to a Workspace by a Customer (“Authorized Users”) routinely submit Customer Data to Remote Team when using the Services.

• Other Information. We also collects, generates and/or receives Other Information:

I. Workspace and Account Information. To create or update a Workspace account, you or your Customer (e.g., your employer) supply Remote Team with an email address, phone number, password, domain and/or similar account details. In addition, Customers that purchase a paid version of the Services provide Remote Team (or its payment processors) with billing details such as credit card information, banking information and/or a billing address. II. Usage Information.

 Services Metadata. When an Authorized User interacts with the Services, metadata is generated that provides additional context about the way Authorized Users work. For example, Remote Team logs the Workspaces, channels, people, features, content and links you view or interact with, the types of files shared, and what Third Party Services are used (if any).

 Log data. As with most websites and technology services delivered over the Internet, our servers automatically collect information when you access or use our Websites or Services and record it in log files. This log data may include the Internet Protocol (IP) address, the address of the web page visited before using the Website or Services, browser type and settings, the date and time the Services were used, information about browser configuration and plugins, language preferences and cookie data.

 Device information. Remote Team collects information about devices accessing the Services, including type of device, what operating system is used, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this Other Information often depends on the type of device used and its settings.

For more details about how we use these technologies, and your opt-out opportunities and other options.

IV. Third Party Services. A Customer can choose to permit or restrict Third Party Services for its Workspace. Typically, Third Party Services are software that integrate with our Services, and a Customer can permit its Authorized Users to enable and disable these integrations for its Workspace. We may also develop and offer Remote Team applications that connect the Services with a Third Party Service. Once enabled, the provider of a Third Party Service may share certain information with Remote Team. For example, if a cloud storage application is enabled to permit files to be imported to a Workspace, we may receive the user name and email address of Authorized Users, along with additional information that the application has elected to make available to Remote Team to facilitate the integration.

Remote Team security overview.


We protect your data.

All data is written to multiple disks instantly, backed up daily, and stored in multiple locations. Files that our customers upload are stored on servers that use modern techniques to remove bottlenecks and points of failure.


Your data is sent using HTTPS.

Whenever your data is in transit between you and us, everything is encrypted, and sent using HTTPS. Any files which you upload to us are stored and are encrypted at rest. Project data, messages, text documents and todos aren’t encrypted at rest — they are active in our database. Our backups of your data are encrypted using GPG.


Full redundancy for all major systems.

Our servers — from power supplies to the internet connection to the air purifying systems — operate at full redundancy. Our systems are engineered to stay up even if multiple servers fail.


Sophisticated physical security.

Our state-of-the-art servers are protected by biometric locks and round-the-clock interior and exterior surveillance monitoring. Only authorized personnel have access to the data center. 24/7/365 onsite staff provides additional protection against unauthorized entry and security breaches.


Regularly-updated infrastructure.

Our software infrastructure is updated regularly with the latest security patches. Our products run on a dedicated network which is locked down with firewalls and carefully monitored. While perfect security is a moving target, we work with security researchers to keep up with the state-of-the-art in web security.


We protect your billing information.

All credit card transactions are processed using secure encryption—the same level of encryption used by leading banks. Card information is transmitted, stored, and processed securely on a PCI-Compliant network.


15 years in business.

We’ve been around the block and we’ve seen a lot of companies come and go. Security isn’t just about technology, it’s about trust. Over the past 15 years we’ve worked hard to earn the trust of over hundreds of thousands of companies world wide. We’ll continue to work hard every day to maintain that trust. Longevity and stability is core to our mission at Remote Team.

Tracking and disclosing security issues

We work with security researchers to keep up with the state-of-the-art in web security. Have you discovered a web security flaw that might impact our products? Please let us know. If you submit a report, here’s what will happen:

  • We’ll acknowledge your report & tell you the best way to track the status of your issue.
  • We’ll investigate the issue and determine how it impacts our products. We won’t disclose issues until our investigation is finished, but we’ll work with you to ensure we fully understand the issue.
  • Once the issue is resolved, we’ll post a security update along with thanks and credit for the discovery.

Our products are built on the Ruby on Rails framework (which we created and maintain). The issue you reported might affect Rails, Ruby, or some other part of our technology stack. We ask for your patience while we also make sure other companies and their customers are protected. Either way, you’ll always have a Remote Team contact for your issue.


Thanks for working with us

We respect the time and talent that drives new discoveries in web security technology.

Until the End of the Internet

Internet software and services disappear all the time because of whimsy (“changing priorities”), acquisition, financial failure, or worse. It’s become a risky venture to place your trust and data in services that could disappear at any moment, for any reason, and with no guarantee that your data will be safe, preserved, or even portable.

We want more for Remote Team customers.

When they launched, each of our products was our finest work. They were the result of countless hours laboring to build software that is simple, clear, easy-to-use, and honest. They remind us where we’ve been, how we got here, and point to where we’re going. We’re proud of these products and honored by all the customers who have supported us over the years, who made our tools partners in their success, and who continue to rely on them every day.


It’s a promise to our customers

We’re dedicated to supporting our products forever (or until the last customer turns off the lights). Remote Team stands against the tide of ephemeral software and services that are frustratingly common on the Internet. Remote Team is built to last. Supporting our legacy products and customers who love them isn’t free or easy but it’s the right thing to do. We’ll be here until the end of the Internet.

Here’s what that means:

  • The day you become a Remote Team customer you can trust that Remote Team will be around. In the event that the Remote Team product you’re using enters a legacy phase you’ll be free to keep using it as-is indefinitely, assuming you continue to abide by our terms of service and keep your subscription active.
  • Your data is safe. Regardless of status, all of our products receive the same rigorous care when it comes to security and privacy. While we may not add new features to legacy products we’ll continue to apply the latest security updates; maintain the infrastructure that keeps them safe, fast and secure; and continue to offer customer support.
  • Remote Team is our life’s work—we’re in this for the long haul. In the unforeseen and unanticipated event that the company or one of our products is acquired by another company, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure the product and this promise live on.

Changes & questions

Remote Team may update this policy once in a blue moon—we’ll notify you about significant changes by emailing the account owner or by placing a prominent notice on our site.

Questions about this policy? Get in touch and we’ll be happy to answer them!
