What Personal Information Does Looptivity Collect?
The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Service. In connection with the Service, we request and display some Personal Information to other users and visitors of the Service, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the following types of information from our users.
Information You Provide to Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include, but is not limited to, your name, user name, email address, phone number, use information and browser information. The Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other users, improving the content of the Service, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features. We may also draw upon this Information in order to adapt the services of our community to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network, and to develop new tools for the community.
Non Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically:
- We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Service or services. When you use the Service, Looptivity automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform including your geo-location, time of request, IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
- Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components and users who use our mobile application. Looptivity only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Service or services so that we can make the Service appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Service, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, Looptivity will not, intentionally, disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that could identify you personally
What About Cookies?
- Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your mobile and computer’s browser (the Browser) to enable our systems to recognize your Browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Looptivity cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.
Personally Identifiable Information and Sharing of Your Personal Information:
Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. Looptivity may share your Personal Information only as described below. Use of the Service: The Service is primarily designed to help you share information, including your location, with others. This not only includes the information that you provide directly to Looptivity, but also information that you broadcast to third party services using the Service. You can control your information through your privacy settings accessible through the ‘settings’ tab on our website once you’re logged into the Service. Information you submit to the Service will be available to users of the Service in accordance with the selected privacy settings. Your name and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the Service network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. This is primarily so your friends can find you and send a friend request. People who see your name in searches, however, will not be able to access all of your information (e.g., plans and check-in history, or e-mail address) unless they have a relationship to you (friends etc.) that allows such access based on your privacy settings. Please remember that if you choose to provide personal information using certain features of the Service, that information is governed by the privacy settings of those particular features and, unless selected otherwise, may be available to the wider Looptivity community or may be published on the Looptivity website, which is subject to indexing by third party search engines. Individuals reading this information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. Therefore, we urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in “My 2 cents” or other user-inputted content that you create in the Service (location or otherwise). Listed below are services where Looptivity gathers personal information and details on how the information is used:
Looptivity uses personally identifiable information collected from you to complete your registration to the Site. At this time, to register for the Services, you must enter your First Name, Email address and Password chosen by you. You will receive an email from us to confirm your registration to the email address you provide during the registration process.
Once a registered user, you may provide additional information in the Profile section such as profile picture, number of children, gender, and zip code. This information is voluntary.
Upon registering for the Service, you will be asked whether you want to ‘invite friends’. This allows you to start building your private network of Friends that you can share information with. You can invite contacts by letting the Service access your phone contacts, Gmail contacts or any other contacts. When you invite your Friends, they will receive an email with your personal information such as first and last name. This information is necessary to make sure your invitee knows who has contacted them. To build a community based on trust and empathy, we feel this disclosure is necessary.
Make a Plan:
The Make a Plan feature allows you to invite your loops to an activity, restaurant, playdate, and other things. You have the option to invite some or all of your loops. Your loops will see your information and the names of your Friends. They will not be able to access any information of your Friends if that friend is not in their network. PLEASE NOTE, IF MAKING A PLAN AT YOUR HOME, PLEASE DO NOT ADD YOUR ADDRESS TO THE GENERAL NETWORK, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DELETE, INSTEAD, ADD IT AS A NOTE TO THE PLAN. While the Service does allow you to note your location at restaurants, bars, stores (and so on) throughout your community, at no time does Looptivity ask you to provide your home address for use as a venue in the Service database. You should be aware that if you or your loops add your home as a new venue in the Service database and that information is published on the Service (for example, via a user checking in or making a plan at that home venue), that information may be published by third parties without our control. To request removal of a venue from the Looptivity database, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This function allows you to tell your Friends where you are. You can make this information available to your entire network of Friends or just the Friends you choose to be in the know.
Looptivity provides a Notifications system whereby you can choose what kind of notifications you elect to receive. You can change these notification settings by logging in to your account and going into your Settings.
The Emergency Feature allows you to Call 911, Poison Control or Text Your Emergency Contacts. This feature can access your Phone Contacts and your number will be seen anyone you contact through this service.
You may receive a confirmation when you open an email from email@example.com if your computer supports this type of program. Looptivity uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please indicate your preference by making a modification on your account settings page or through the ‘settings’ tab on our website once you’re logged into the service.
Third Party or Other Services:
Businesses We Do Not Control: We enter into relationships with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses sell items or provide promotions to you through Looptivity Service. In other situations, Looptivity provides services, or sells products jointly with these businesses. You can easily recognize when one of these businesses is associated with your transaction, and we will share your Personal Information that is related to such transactions with that business, unless you have elected not to be solicited by marketing partners during the registration process or through the account settings page. Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, Looptivity agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information for the above purposes. .

Protection of Looptivity and Others:
We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Looptivity, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Non-Private or Non-Personal Information:
For clarity, we may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as the number of users who checked in at a particular location (even if only one did).
Is Personal Information About me Secure?
Your Looptivity account Personal Information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
Looptivity endeavors to safeguard user information to ensure that user account information is kept private. However, Looptivity cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.
What personal information can I access?
Looptivity allows you to access the following information about you for the purpose of viewing, and in certain situations, updating that information. This list will change as our Service changes.
- Username and password
- Email address
- Other User profile information (e.g., zip code, photo)
- Usage information (e.g., check-in history, plan history)
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. Looptivity does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register with Looptivity. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without parental consent, we take steps to remove that information.
DELETING YOUR ACCOUNT:
Should you ever decide to delete your Looptivity account, you may do so by contacting Looptivity at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you terminate your account, your profile, including any messages in your loops and any promotional offers you received, will be removed from the site and deleted from Looptivity servers. Because of the way we maintain Looptivity, such deletion may not be immediate, and residual copies of your profile information or posts may remain on backup media for up to ninety (90) days. What Choices Do I Have?
- As stated previously, you can adjust your account settings to control the amount of information you share with users of the Service, even though some settings may be needed to take advantage of certain Looptivity features.
- You are able to add or update certain information on pages, such as those listed in the “What Personal Information Can I Access” section above. When you update information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records.
