Certain personal information is requested in order to maintain a level of safety within the PhotoSesh community and to properly process 1099 independent contractors (or T4A contractors in Canada). For SSN# or SIN# (US or Canada) we only require the last 4 digits. Our goal is to on-board photographers to our platform most efficiently using background checks and to keep compliance with issuing year-end 1099s (or T4As) to qualified earners. We also require certain personal information in order to compensate photographers via direct deposit.
