Terms and Conditions
Eligibility to join Omdena’s Community
In order to join Omdena, you must be over the age of 18 (with a few exceptions) and you must have an Internet connection in order to apply and work on our platform. Unfortunately, we cannot approve all applications but are proud to support a thriving community of global talent.
Regardless of where you are living, you are responsible to comply with any work authorization requirements you may have. We are not able to advise you on whether you can work on Omdena except in the specific restriction cases below.
Federal Law restricts Omdena from conducting business with individuals and entities based in certain countries. Businesses or individuals in the following countries are not permitted to register for accounts or utilize our platform:
– North Korea
– Individual nationals of Cuba
– Any other country restricted by law (this changes occasionally)
In compliance with Federal Law, Omdena does not conduct business with individuals and entities on a list called the Specially Designated Nationals (“SDN”) list. More information on these laws, click here. In addition, there may be other countries we do not currently service. Interested parties in these locations will be unable to complete account registration.
Finally, if you have been suspended from Omdena in the past you are not allowed to work on our platform again.
We can also verify identity in several ways
– Government ID Verification
– Government ID + Residency Verification
– Video Verification
Our reason is to determine ownership of an account (including the U.S. Government Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance program) and to confirm your location to qualify for location-specific jobs. In addition, we will use the US Government Sanction List.
