We’re Serious About Your Privacy
We are a social network and online platform for professionals.
Maintaining our Members trust is our first priority, so we adhere to several principles to protect your privacy:
1. What information we collect
1.1. Data Controllers
We collect your personal information in the following ways:
When you create an account with us, we collect information (including your name, email address, password, telephone number and other information).
1.3. Profile Information
We collect information when you fill out a profile. A complete Simple Reciprocity profile that includes professional details – like your occupation, education, and offer to help others – helps you get found by other people for giving and referral opportunities.
After you create an account, you may choose to provide additional information on your Simple Reciprocity profile. Subject to the Groups you belong to (Groups are local professionals networked together on our social media platform) the professional connections you’ve made and your offers to help others, you may receive requests for pro bono services or make requests of other professionals for pro bono services for clients or others. Providing additional information enables you to derive more benefit from Simple Reciprocity by describing your professional identity; find other professionals, opportunities, and information; and help business opportunities find you.
1.4. Customer Service
We collect information when you contact us for customer support.
1.5. Using the Simple Reciprocity Sites and Applications
We collect information when you visit Simple Reciprocity and use our mobile applications.
We collect information when you use (whether as a Member or a Visitor) our websites, our platform technology or other services. We may log information about devices used to access Simple Reciprocity, including an IP address. 1.6. Cookies
1.7. Log Files, IP Addresses, and Information About Your Computer and Mobile Device
We collect information from the devices and networks that you use to access Simple Reciprocity. When you visit or leave Simple Reciprocity (whether as a Member or Visitor) by clicking a hyperlink or when you view a third-party site that includes our plugin or cookies (or similar technology), we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came or the one to which you are directed.
We also receive the internet protocol (“IP”) address of your computer or the proxy server that you use to access the web, your computer operating system details, your type of web browser, your mobile device (including your mobile device identifier provided by your mobile device operating system), your mobile operating system (if you are accessing Simple Reciprocity using a mobile device), and the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier. We may also receive location data passed to us from third-party services or GPS-enabled devices that you have set up, which we use to show you local information on our mobile applications and for fraud prevention and security purposes.
Most mobile devices allow you to prevent real time location data being sent to us, and of course we will honor your settings. In the case of our Android apps, you will be provided notice of the types of data (e.g. location) that will be sent to us. If you choose to use our app after this notice, we process this data to enable registration or preview product features for you (e.g. jobs near you). If you choose not to become a Member, we will delete this information.
We are constantly innovating to improve Simple Reciprocity, which means we may create new ways to collect information on our service.

2.2. Simple Reciprocity Communications
We communicate with you using Simple Reciprocity messaging, email, and other ways available to us.

You can change your email settings at any time. We communicate with you through email, notices posted on the Simple Reciprocity website, messages to your Simple Reciprocity inbox, and other means available through Simple Reciprocity.
Examples of these communications include: (1) welcome and engagement communications – informing you about how to best use our Simple Reciprocity, new features, and updates about other Members you are connected to; (2) service communications – these will cover service availability, security, and other issues about the functioning of Simple Reciprocity.
2.3. User Communications
With certain communications you send on Simple Reciprocity, the recipient can see your name, email address, and some other Simple Reciprocity information.
Many communications that you initiate through Simple Reciprocity (for example, an invitation sent to a non-Member) will list your name and primary email address in the message. Messages you initiate may also provide the recipient with information about you or your Group. Other communications that you initiate through the Simple Reciprocity, like a request for an introduction, may list your name as the initiator and may include your email address. Once you have connected with an individual, regardless of who sent the invitation, your contact information will be shared with that individual.
2.4. Service Development – Customized Experience
We use the information you provide to us to try to improve our service and make it relevant and useful to you. We use information and content that you and other Members provide to us and share on Simple Reciprocity for the improvement of Simple Reciprocity. We do this to provide you and other Members a better, more valuable, experience and drive membership growth, engagement on Simple Reciprocity, and to help connect professionals to helping and business relationship opportunities.
2.5. Sharing Information with Third Parties
Simple Reciprocity helps you search for other professionals in or out of your area who may be able to help with requests for pro bono services, share professional advice or referral opportunities. We use information from Simple Reciprocity including Member profiles and Group content to inform and refine our search service.
You are responsible for any information you post on Simple Reciprocity, and this content will be accessible to other members. If you participate in Groups, share content on your wall, or import a blog article or other content, you should be aware that any information you choose to disclose using these services can be read, collected, and used by other Members in these forums or Groups. We are not responsible for the information you choose to submit in these areas. Your Group contributions are typically searchable on Simple Reciprocity. You can remove your Groups posts at any time. However, others may have copied and used the information that you shared.

We may employ third parties to help us with Simple Reciprocity.

These third parties have limited access to your information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated to Simple Reciprocity not to disclose or use it for other purposes.
3. What we expect from you
3.1. Rights to Access, Correct, or Delete Your Information, and Closing Your Account

4.4. California’s Shine the Light Law
We don’t share any of your personal information with third parties for direct marketing. California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our customers who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge. Under Section 1798.83, we currently do not share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
We take privacy and security seriously and have enabled HTTPS access to our site (turn on HTTPS), in addition to existing SSL access over mobile devices. Also, please know that the Internet is not a secure environment, so be careful and select strong passwords. We have implemented security safeguards designed to protect the personal information that you provide in accordance with industry standards. Access to your data on our Services is password-protected, and data such as credit card information is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and Simple Reciprocity. We also offer secure https access to the Simple Reciprocity.com website. To protect any data you store on our servers, we also regularly monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a tier-one secured-access data center. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us.
There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information.
