What information we collect and maintain about you
We collect personal and other information from you directly when you provide it to us through the Services. We may also automatically collect certain information about you and your computer, smartphone, or other device when you use, access, or interact with our Services. We may also collect information from third parties in relation to providing you the Services.
Personal information collected from accountholders. If you create an account in relation to your use of the Services, we will collect personal information from you related to creating and maintaining your account. The information we collect may include:
- Profile information, such as your full name, username, password.
- Communication information, such as your email address, email preferences, and phone number.
- Information you provide when using the Services, such as your gender, information about who you want to be matched with (including their gender), and information about people you identify as a matchmaker (if you are signing up as a single user).
- Any other information that you share as part of creating your profile, such as your picture or information about your preferences or hobbies.
We may also collect information about you from third parties in relation to our Services.
Other personal data collected through the Services. You can visit the Services without submitting any information that we can use to identify you personally. However, to use certain features on the Services, such as the “Contact Us” feature, you will be required to provide personal information. Such information could include, for example, your name, email address, phone number, and any information contained in the content of your message to us.
Web log data. When you use the Services, we automatically receive and record certain information from your computer (or other device) and your browser. This may include such data as your IP address and domain name, the pages you visit on the Services, information about your activity on a page, the date and time of your visit, the files that you download, the URLs from the websites you visit before and after navigating to the Services, your software and hardware attributes (including device IDs), your general geographic location (e.g., your city, state, or metropolitan region), and certain cookie information (see below). To obtain such information, we may use web logs or applications that recognize your computer (or other device) and gather information about its online activity.
Web beacons. Our services or the emails that you receive from Loop may use an application known as a “web beacon” (also known as a “clear gif” or “web bug”). A web beacon is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include personal information. For example, it can allow an email sender to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.
Third-party online tracking and behavioral advertising. We may partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, and use the personal and other information described in this section. For example, we may allow third parties to set cookies or use web beacons on the Services or in email communications from us. This information may be used for a variety of purposes, including online interest-based advertising, as discussed below (see the section entitled “With Whom and Why We Share Your Information”).

Our legal bases for processing your personal information are: 1) our legitimate interest in running and maintaining our business; 2) performance and fulfillment of our contracts; 3) your consent; and 4) compliance with our legal obligations.

We share your information with other parties for a variety of purposes, as described below.
Other users. If you use the Services as an accountholder, your personal information, including your phone number, may be shared with other users for the purposes of offering our Services.
Third-party service providers. Loop uses third-party service providers that perform services on our behalf, including web-hosting companies, mailing vendors, and analytics providers.

Interest-based advertising. The Services also enable third-party tracking mechanisms to collect information about you and your computing devices for use in online interest-based advertising. For example, third parties may use the fact that you visited the Services to target online ads to you. In addition, our third-party advertising networks might use information about your use of the Services to help target advertisements based on your online activity in general. For information about interest-based advertising practices, including privacy and confidentiality, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website or the Digital Advertising Alliance website.
The use of online tracking mechanisms by third parties is subject to those third parties’ privacy policies, and not this Policy. If you prefer to prevent third parties from setting and accessing cookies on your computer or other device, you may set your browser to block cookies. Additionally, you may remove yourself from the targeted advertising of companies within the Network Advertising Initiative by opting out here, or of companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance by opting out here. Our Site currently does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
Legal purposes. We may use or share your information with third parties when we believe, in our sole discretion, that doing so is necessary:
- To comply with applicable law or a court order, subpoena, or other legal process;

The Services may contain links to third-party websites. If you use these links, you will leave the Services. We have not reviewed these third-party sites and do not control and are not responsible for any of these sites, their contents, or their privacy policies. Thus, we do not endorse or make any representations about them, or any information, software, or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you decide to access any of the third-party sites listed on our website, you do so at your own risk.
We employ physical, technical, and administrative procedures to safeguard the personal information we collect online.

Loop may subcontract the processing of your data to, or otherwise share your data with, affiliates or third parties in the United States or countries other than your country of residence. The data protection laws in these countries may be different from, and less stringent than, those in your country of residence. By using the Services or by providing any personal or other information to us, you expressly consent to such transfer and processing.
