Upon request, The Lobby will let you know whether we hold any of your personal information.

You may access, correct, or request deletion of your personal information by emailing us at [email protected] We will need sufficient information from you to establish your identity in order to fulfill your request. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will notify you via email that we are unable to do so and why.

With your consent, we may send push notifications (or “alerts”) to your mobile device to provide user activity information, service updates, promotional communications and other related messages. You can deactivate push notifications by changing your notifications settings via your mobile device.

Promotional Communications

You may opt out of receiving promotional messages from The Lobby by following the instructions in those messages or contacting us at [email protected] If you opt out, we may still send you transactional or relationship messages, such as those about your account or our ongoing business relations.

Geo-location Information

When you use a smart phone or other mobile device to access our Services, with your permission we may collect your geo-location information to optimize user experience, such as for localization accuracy, language display, or the provision of relevant advertising.

Third-Party Services

Our website or Services may contain links to other websites or online services or allow others to send you such links. A link to a third-party’s website or online service does not mean that we endorse it or that we are affiliated with it. We do not exercise control over third-party websites or online services. You access such third-party websites or online services at your own risk. You should always read the privacy policy of a third-party website or online service before providing any information to the third-party.

Data Retention

The Lobby takes reasonable measures to help protect the security, integrity, and privacy of your information in our possession. That said, data transmission over email or the Internet is never completely without risk. Please keep this in mind when disclosing personal information to The Lobby via email or the Services.
