The Lobby Privacy Policy

Your right to privacy is one of our primary concerns. This Privacy Policy applies whenever you access any of our products, services, content and/or website https://www.thelobby.io/ (together, our “Services”). This Privacy Policy describes how The Lobby collects, uses and discloses information about you collected through our Services.

By visiting, using, registering for or otherwise accessing our Services, you agree to this Privacy Policy and give an explicit and informed consent to the processing of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, you may not use our Services.

The Lobby reserves the right to periodically modify this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy from time to time for the latest information on our privacy practices.

In case of material or significant changes, we may provide an additional notice (such as emailing you or placing a notice on our website). Please note that your continued use of our Services will signify your acceptance of any updates to this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection

Information You Provide

We collect information that you voluntarily provide The Lobby, such as when using our Services or registering an account with us, participating in a promotion or survey, requesting customer support or otherwise communicating with us. The type of information that we may collect includes your first and last name, email address, geo-location, phone number, date of birth, gender, friend connections, feedback that you provide, credit card information, photograph, resume, job and location preference information, forum posts, third-party account credentials (e.g. LinkedIn login credentials) or other identifying information you choose to provide.

Information We Collect Automatically

When you use our Services, we automatically collect information about you, which may include any and/or all of the following:

  • Device and browser information: We collect device specific information when you access our Services from a mobile device or browser, which may include your hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers, device software platform and firmware, data about usage of our Services while connected to devices that you authorize us to integrate, geographical data and mobile network information, and other anonymous or aggregated data as reasonably required by The Lobby to enhance our Services. We may on occasion match or combine the information automatically collected from your device with personal information we obtain from you or other sources, including publicly available databases or third parties from whom we have purchased data or that is already in our records. This sort of combined information may be used in the ways described in this Privacy Policy.
  • Use Information: We collect information about your use of the Services, including the type of browser you use, access times, pages viewed, engagement activity, interactions with other users, your IP address and the page you visited before navigating to our Services. We also may store recordings of any calls you have through our Services for quality assurance purposes.
  • Information Collected by Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies: We, and our partners acting on our behalf, use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect information about the pages you view, your movements around our website, the links you click and other actions you take while using our Services. We may also use this technology to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports from our partners (e.g. Google Analytics) providing us with this collected information on an individual and aggregated basis based on your use of our Services. Web beacons are electronic images that may be used in our Services or emails to help deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. In the event that we launch a mobile application, we may also use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your devices. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded from.
Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may also collect information from features and functions offered by other sources such as social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. These features may collect your IP address, pages you visit on our website, or set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly.

Please note that these features are subject to the privacy policy associated with the third parties providing them. For example, if you create or log into your account through a social media site, we will have access to certain information from that site, such as your name, account information, profile picture, phone number, email address, gender, date of birth, and friends list.

We may process, use, combine, disclose, and retain such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In some instances, you may log in to our website or Services using sign-in services such as Facebook Connect or an Open ID provider. These services will authenticate your identity, provide you the option to share certain personal information with us (such as your name and email address) and to pre-populate our sign-up form.
